Hi Team,

I am planning to buy new car with budget of 6L to 7L on road price for compact family, I put up in Andhra pradesh and will be traveling to karnataka as well.

Initially my thought was to go for tata tiago XT, now I am thinking to buy tata Altorz XE Rhythm and willing to upgrade by adding most required features (Rear power windows and fog lamps). You are welcome to suggest/recommend genuine accessories dealers in vishakapatnam.

Please suggest, which one should I choose tiago (or) altroz. Most welcome for other options/suggestions as well.

Please help me choosing good insurance policy. Spoke to tata dealer and they are ok, if I arrange insurance by my own.

Thanks & Regards,

Greetings !!

Altroz XE Rhythm is definite a value buy and superior choice over Tiago XT
> More Safer with 5 Star Safety Rating and proved with Stable in Global NCAP as against Tiago marked unstable
> Premium Hatchback with even more style factor over Tiago
> Better Space Management over Tiago in Width, Marginally in real legroom and bigger boot
> Handling Dynamics of Altroz is impeccable over Tiago
> Engine NVH Levels are better balanced out

Considering fact that you going to take car often on highway - Altroz yes is better offering

In terms of Upgrading with Accessories
> Recommended to opt in Wheel Cover, Fog Light, Dashcam, App Based Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Good Mobile Holder to use Mobile Phone as Navigation and other basic accessories like Mats, Mud Flaps, Gear Lock
> Not recommended to add Rear Power Window as it cant be operated from driver side, Only the passenger on rear can operate individually

Pl check - Altroz Accessories Prices
May get these fitted at Tata Motor Authorized dealership

choosing good insurance policy
Been service level can vastly vary basis location to location, like Bajaj Allianz, HDFC Ergo is highly popular in Delhi and NCR Zone, while ICICI Lombard and New India in Mumbai

Best way is to contact in same dealer workshop and have a word with body shop manager
Generally - claims and major accidents are serviced by body shop manager of workshop and he can give candid feedback of service level of Insutance company and recommended in best 1 to 2 platers. Then you can check out and compare premium to buy Policy Online

Here are some recommended optional cover which may want to know more details about - Car Insurance add on covers

Hope should help !!

Thank you Admin for speedy response :D

Heard like Altroz petrol engine have clunky transmission and unrefined engine, is it true? I don't know much about engines.

Would request you to suggest possible options below 6L ex-show room price ranking wise, This will helps us a lot.

Both Tiago and Altroz comes in 3 Cylinder Petrol Engine
Somehow yes Engine NVH Levels are higher when you compare this Revotron 1.2 Engine as against
> Maruti K Series Engine
> Honda 1.2 Ivtec engine as used in Amaze, Jazz
> Hyundai 1.2 VTVT Petrol Engine
or even Ford 1.2 Dragon series Petrol Engine

But Altroz has relative superior engine NVH Level as against Tiago
So if Tiago on consideration and basis usage specified then Altroz is a choice

Alternate Choices basis Highway Drive and Usage
> Ford Figo Trend Model
> Volkswagen Polo Trendline Model

Basis Safety Element, Handling both cars are reasonable good
VW Polo yes even comes in smaller 1 Litre engine, but trust if you are someone who
> prefer relaxed drive
> cruises at speed of 80 to 100 Kmph
> Rear Seats to be not used most of the times

then Polo TRendline Petrol is an excellent choice too. You will be reasonably impressed with
> Safety
> Suspension
> Handling
> Build
> Drive Dynamics

Theres an impression that VW Service cost are high, but in recent year spare prices and service cost are controlled too
Pl refer - VW Polo Service Cost

Alternate for slight better features may check out Ford Figo Trend Petrol
> Although Power Output is at 95 BHP, but this engine too is best if driven in linear relaxed way
> Engine NVH Levels definite better than Tata Car

Ford Service cost are reasonable and more competitive against other cars - Polo , Altroz, Tiago
Somehow both Polo and Figo gets superior NVH Level too and carries good stability on drive,

Suggest to make a check
