The deep blue colour looks very elegant. Complements the cars' sharp lines. Not so sure about the blue-ish ambient footwell lights?
I see TML has deleted the plastic engine top cover: engine bay looks quite scary if you ask me, like a spaghetti bowl of wiring and plumbing snaking its way all over the place

Hope they've shortened the top 4 ratios enough to make the car feel spiffy.

I wonder if it is a wet or dry clutch setup. Either way, it is a welcome addition. Hopefully, this gearbox can make its way up to the more powerful models soon.

I really hate the way that Tata treats its products. It's like a TV series. They find a way of keeping things interesting every now and then, but with a twist.

Hardly anything to be honest, he is saying blah blah. The gearbox is not developed in or for India, it was by a Belgian company, later acquired by a Chinese group.

Oh! Thanks for the correction and sharing. This is good to know. I suppose we still have to be wary about the real world performance and reliability of this engine just like any new product

Let the car launch and TD reviews come out, if priced right it could be a game changer especially for auto buyers.

Not just in team-bhp, overall the excitement level for the automatic launch is very poor across all online portals. I guess it is the same in the offline world also.

TATA is the only one to be blamed here. To launch their most anticipated car in the hottest segment where there are close to 30K sales per month and not having an auto box for two years will definitely put off many prospective buyers. And finally, when they are ready, they don't want to launch it in turbo engine but only in NA. It would be a great surprise if TATA can manage even 2K sales of auto variants! But the irony is that TATA will be very happy to get just 2K sales!

Tata Motors has launched the Altroz DCA with introductory prices starting from Rs 8.09 lakh, and going up to Rs 9.89 lakh.

The new 7-speed dual clutch (wet) gearbox is being offered only with the 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, NA petrol engine.

Variant-wise pricing

The pricing announced. Starting at 8.09L I don't think it is that much VFM for the 1.2 NA engine. It will come down to individual preferences, as to what one is willing to compromise.
