The Tata Altroz has won yet another accolade, this time entering the India Book of Records for its achievement. In an impressive feat of determination and perseverance, Devjeet Saha and his Altroz covered 1,603 kilometers in 24 hours. The duo had done a round trip from Satara to Bengaluru and back to Pune between December 15th and December 16th, 2020. For every auto enthusiast like Mr. Saha, embarking on long road trips is probably one of the most satisfying feelings in the world. Quite naturally, Tata was really proud of what their golden child had achieved and couldn’t contain their confidence in the Altroz.

The India Book of Records has been around since 2006, with the latest edition having been launched in 2019. Thousands across the country leave on road trips every year (maybe not during the pandemic, but you get the idea). Whether this is to try and conquer a lifelong goal or just for the sheer thrill of it, road trips can be fun. However, as one can imagine, setting out on a journey is all fun and games until your vehicle conks off. This can be even more nerve-wracking if you, like Mr. Saha, are undertaking a record-setting journey. The Tata Altroz is a fairly new car, for now, having arrived on the scene just a year ago.

There are currently around seven different trim levels of the Altroz on sale in India. Prices range between Rs 5.70 Lakh to Rs 9.46 Lakh for the base petrol and the top-spec diesel variants, respectively. Tata Motors recently launched the iTurbo version of the Altroz which comes with the Nexon’s turbo-petrol engine. This 1.2-liter three-cylinder motor belts out 108hp and 140Nm of torque, spinning the front tires via a 5-speed manual transmission. Compared to its naturally-aspirated variant, the Altroz iTurbo feels peppier and more spirited in its nature. However, it will still take it around 12 seconds to hit 100 kmph from a standstill.

If you are planning to take a road trip in the Tata Altroz, you wouldn’t have to worry about safety. This is because the Altroz scored the maximum 5-star crash-safety rating at Global NCAP last year. It comes equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Corner Stability Control, and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points. Also, XM+ trim and above get a larger touchscreen infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. As you can imagine, higher trim levels do come with a lot more standard features as well. The list accounts for a digital driver’s display, mood lighting, cruise control, and automatic climate control with Xpress Cool function.
