In India, the Altroz DCT will compete directly with the Hyundai i20 DCT, as well as the Glanza and Baleno AMT and Jazz CVT.

Tata Motors will offer an automatic transmission on the Altroz hatchback, which has been on the market for nearly two years. Bookings for the Altroz DCT, which is set to launch on March 21, are presently open for a token sum of Rs 21,000 each. The Altroz’s 86hp, 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine will be available with a DCT transmission.

  • Altroz DCT will come in XT, XZ, XZ+, and Dark Edition models.
  • The DCT transmission will be a 7-speed device, paired with a 1.2 NA petrol engine with 86 horsepower.
  • On March 21, a price announcement is scheduled.

What’s new with the Tata Altroz DCT automatic?

The DCT transmission was first tested on the Tata Altroz, which boasts a more powerful 110hp 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine. In truth, the Altroz DCT’s first spy photos were leaked in December 2020.

Altroz DCT will have a new 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox to go with its 1.2-liter three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. With the manual transmission, this engine produces 86 horsepower and 113 Nm of peak torque, while particular output with the DCT gearbox has yet to be announced.

That engine-gearbox combination, on the other hand, proved to be too costly for our market, where it would have likely cost more than the Hyundai i20 DCT.

As a result, both the turbo-petrol and diesel engines will only be available in manual transmission.


The Tata Altroz DCT automatic is expected to include the following attributes.

Tata is also likely to offer a larger touchscreen on the Altroz DCT’s higher models, thanks to the present 7.0-inch screen’s decreased bezel. As previously stated, the Altroz DCT will be available in the XT, XZ, XZ+, and Dark Edition forms, with the exception of the larger touchscreen, the equipment list remaining unchanged. The Dark Variant edition, on the other hand, will keep its all-black exterior and interior design. With this update, Tata Motors will also offer a new shade of blue to the whole Altroz series.

When it goes on sale, the Altroz DCT will go up against the Hyundai i20 DCT, Maruti Suzuki Baleno AMT, Toyota Glanza AMT, Honda Jazz CVT, and Volkswagen Polo AT. The DCT unit on the Altroz is significantly more sophisticated than the CVTs and AMTs on the Jazz, Baleno, and Glanza. The Hyundai i20 is the only other hatchback in its segment with a DCT transmission.
