As you can see from the table, the Altroz has not changed in terms of overall dimensions. The Tata Altroz stands out in terms of height and boot space against the Hyundai i20. However the Hyundai i20 with 2580mm of wheelbase goes ahead of the Altroz.

If you want an automatic transmission, Hyundai i20 turbo is your only option. However if you want a genuine stick shifter turbo car then i20 fails miserably with the iMT. The 5-speed manual transmission is a safe option by Tata. The company is also expected to launch some form of automatic transmission with the car in the future. We expect it to be a DCT/DSG transmission.
