Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Tata Altroz

    • Turbo-petrol engine offers enjoyable performance
    • Five-star safety rating
    • Leatherette upholstery makes the cabin feel more premium
    • Best-in-class ride and handling package
    • Automatic transmission is smooth and takes the stress out of city driving

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Tata Altroz

    • Premium features like ventilated seats, wireless changer, and sunroof still missing
    • Cabin insulation is lacking
    • Naturally-aspirated petrol engine lacks power and refinement
    • Automatic not offered with turbo-petrol engine
