Tata Altroz DCA ‘Dual Clutch Auto’ launched at Rs. 8.09 lakh

The Tata Altroz Automatic is available in seven variants, including two Dark Edition trims.

Tata Motors has launched the Altroz DCA (Dual Clutch Automatic) in the Indian market. The hatchback is available in seven variants – XMA+, XTA, XZA, XZA (O), XZA+, XTA Dark and XZA+ Dark, with prices starting at Rs. 8.09 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Altroz Automatic is powered by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 85 BHP and 113 Nm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The dual-clutch unit in the Altroz is said to use 35% fewer components than a conventional DCT. It has a single layshaft and 13 gears with a Planetary Gear System instead of 20 gears. While dry clutches packed together may overheat, the DCA uses wet clutches.

The Altroz DCA comes with Auto Park Lock, which automatically engages and prevents the vehicle from moving if the driver has forgotten to put the car in P mode and is leaving the car. The system monitors the seatbelt and pedal positions.

The Altroz DCA is available in six colour options – Opera Blue (New), Downtown Red, Avenue White, Arcade Grey, Harbour Blue and Cosmo Dark.
