As of now, both these engines come paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard while the automatic gearbox option will be offered by the company in the future.
The Altroz features 90° doors that offer more space to the passengers to get in and out of the vehicle. The top-spec Altroz features a 17.78cm (7″) touchscreen Harman infotainment system, Android Autoplay and Apple CarPlay, voice command recognition, Turn-by-Turn feature, 7″ digital instrument cluster, start/stop push-button, automatic projector headlights with LED DRLs, cruise control, automatic climate control, automatic wipers, ambient lighting, a cooled glovebox and a rear parking camera.
