Can the Altroz outdo its rivals when it comes to cabin space?

Tata’s cars are well known for the amount of space that they offer inside the cabin. Does the Altroz, its newest offering, fit that bill and can it beat its rivals in the premium hatchback segment such as the Hyundai Elite i20 and Maruti Suzuki Baleno in offering the most spacious cabin? We bring out the measuring tape to find out if the answer to that question is a yes or a no. But first let us begin with dimensions.

All these cars fall within the sub-4m category and are pretty close to each other in length. However, if we were to look at the minute differences, the Baleno is the longest and the tallest while the Altroz is the widest and the Elite i20 has the longest wheelbase of the four. The Polo is the smallest one by every measure.

Tata Altroz Front Row

  • While it might have not done well in exterior dimensions, the Polo does offer the most amount of legroom in the first row.

  • The Maruti Baleno which is second in the legroom department, offers the most amount of knee room. What this means is that taller passengers will be more comfortable in the first row of the Polo and Baleno.

  • The Polo also has the longest and widest seat base so those with a bigger frame will be more comfortable in its front seats. It will also offer better under-thigh support.

  • The Altroz, Baleno and Polo are neck and neck when it comes to the seatback height, with the Elite i20 taking the lead. However, the differences here are so marginal that they won’t be noticeable in the real world.

  • The Baleno offers the most headroom in the first row, meaning taller passengers will be further away from the roof liner in the Maruti hatchback than its rivals.

  • The Polo offers the widest cabin in the front row area, followed by the Altroz.

Tata Altroz Second Row

  • The Polo offers the most amount of shoulder room at the back, followed by the Baleno and then the Altroz. The difference between these three is quite small and all three should be able to seat three abreast with similar levels of comfort.

  • The Elite i20 offers the most headroom at the back so taller passengers will be the most comfortable in the Hyundai hatchback.

  • The Baleno has the widest seat base. Coupled with the fact that it offers almost the same shoulder room as the Polo, it should be the most comfortable for three people at the back.

  • The Baleno also has the longest seat base so it will offer the best under-thigh support as well.

  • What’s more, the Baleno offers the most amount of kneeroom as well, a precious commodity in the second row of a hatchback.

Verdict

We have a mixed bag here. The Polo despite having its shortcomings in exterior dimensions is a good proposition for those looking to spend time in the front seats. It is especially more acceptable of taller passengers.

In the second row, Maruti’s Baleno is the better option in this comparison. It can seat three abreast better than its rivals and offers the most kneeroom as well.
