The XZ+ petrol and XZ+ turbo-petrol variants of Altroz Dark Edition are already on sale at Rs 8.80 lakh and Rs 9.40 lakh (both prices ex-showroom, India).
The new mid-level variants of the Tata Altroz Dark Edition have given the buyers an option for selecting the unique paint shade of black at more affordable price points. The Tata Altroz is currently the only premium hatchback in India to offer a paint shade of black in its list of colour schemes.
The Tata Altroz Dark Edition competes with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo in the premium hatchback segment. The competition is going to intensify even more, as the launch of the updated Maruti Suzuki Baleno is just around the corner.
