Tata Altroz BS VI
In this Owner’s Manual, you will find the text under the heading “WARNING” and “NOTE” which highlights important information. Pay particular attention to these highlighted messages.
Indicates additional information that will assist you in gaining the optimum benefit and care for your vehicle.
Indicates procedures or information that must be followed precisely in order to avoid the possibility of severe personal injury and serious damage to the vehi-cle.
Safety consciousness not only ensures your safety and the safety of other road users, but it also helps to reduce the wear and tear on your vehicle.
Safe driving depends on:
- How quickly you make decisions to avoid an accident.
- Your ability to concentrate.
- How well you can see and judge objects.
- How well familiar you are with your vehicle controls and its capabilities.
Fatigue is a result of physical or mental exertion that impairs judgment. Driver fatigue may be due to inadequate sleep, extended work hours, strenuous work or non-work activities or combination of other factors. Take rest at regular intervals.
- Always take into account the road conditions, weather conditions, vehicle speed in order to prevent accidents.
- Turn ‘ON’ the side indicators at least 30 meters before taking a turn or changing the lane.
- Decelerate to a safe speed before taking turn. Do not apply brakes during cornering.
- When overtaking other vehicles, watch out for the oncoming vehicle.
- Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- If your vehicle is equipped with infotainment/navigation system, set and make changes to your travel route only when the vehicle is parked.
- Program radio presets with the vehicle parked, and use your programmed presets to make radio use quicker and simpler.
Driving Through Water
Do not drive through flooded areas. Judge the depth of water before driving through it. Otherwise, water may enter the vehicle interior or the engine compartment. If at all the situation demands that you have to drive through water then;
- Keep engine in higher RPM and crawl the vehicle in low gear.
- Flowing or rushing water creates strong forces. Driving through flowing water could cause the vehicle to about trying to drive through flowing water.
- Lightly apply the brake pedal to dry the liners until the brakes work normally once you are out of water.
Do not attempt to start the engine if vehicle gets flooded due to water. Tow the vehicle to a safe place. Contact a near-est TATA MOTORS Authorised Service Centre.
Driving on a Rainy Day
- Check wiper blades, lights and brakes for proper functioning and condition.
- Check the tire treads depth, the condition of the tread and tire.
- Avoid harsh braking and sharp turns. It may cause loss of control and lead to a skid.
- For slowing down, shift to lower gears and brake gently.
- Keep lights ‘ON’ if visibility is poor.
Driving on Wet Roads
On wet road or during light showers, “Aquaplaning” can occur. “Aquaplaning” is the loss of direct contact between the road surface and the vehicle’s tires due to a water film forming between them. Steering or braking the vehicle can be very difficult, and loss of control can occur. There is no hard and fast rule about aquaplaning. The best advice is to slow down when the road is wet.
- Ensure that all lights are working and windshield, window glasses are clean.
- Drive more slowly at night than in the daytime, as the visual range is restricted at night. Maintain a speed such that you can stop within illuminated distance of head lamps.
- Do not use the high beam unless in-evitable. It may dazzle the driver of the oncoming vehicle, thus causing an accident.
- Use head lamp main/dip beam to alert other road users on turns/ cross roads.
- Use side indicators for lane change or turning.
Driving on Gradients
When climbing gradient, the vehicle may begin to slow down and show a lack of power. If this happens, shift to a lower gear and apply power smoothly so that there is no loss of traction. When driving down a hill, the engine braking should be used by shifting into a lower gear. Do not drive in neutral gear or switch off the engine.
Driving on Highway
Stopping distance progressively, in-creases with vehicle speed. Maintain a sufficient distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead. For long distance driving, perform safety checks before starting a trip and take rest at certain intervals to prevent fatigue.
This section of user manual describes your vehicle’s seat belt, airbag and Child restraints system. Please read and follow all these instructions carefully to minimize risk of severe injury or death.
- Seat belts are the primary restraints system in the vehicle. All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belts to minimize the risk of injury.
- Sit back and adjust the front seat. Make sure that your seat is adjusted to a good driving position and the back of the seat is upright.
Buckling the Shoulder Seat Belt
- Grasp the tongue then slowly pull out the seat belt over the shoulder and across the chest. When the seat belt is long enough to fit, insert the tongue into the lock buckle until you hear a “CLICK” which indicates that the seat belt is securely locked.
- Position the lap portion of seat belt across your pelvic bone, below your abdomen. To remove slack, pull up a bit on the shoulder seat belt. To loosen the lap portion seat belt if it is too tight, tilt the tongue and pull on the lap seat belt. A snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision. Ensure that the seat belt running over the body (shoulder segment and lap segment) does not have any twist. Twisted seat belt may not offer effective protection when required.
Releasing the Seat Belt
To release the seat belt, push the red but-ton on the lock buckle. The seat belt will automatically retract to its stowed position. If necessary, slide the tongue down the webbing to allow the seat belt to retract fully.
Fixed Rear Centre Lap Seat Belt
When buckling, make sure you hear a click confirming that the tab is latched into the seat belt lock. To tighten it, pull the loose end through the buckle until the seat belt is comfortably adjusted around the hips.
- Each seating position and seat belt assembly must only be used by one occupant. It is not recommended to put a seat belt around a child, being carried on an occupant’s lap.
- Be careful not to damage or tamper the seat belt webbing or hardware. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection.
- If the seat belt webbing or hardware is damaged, get it replaced immediately at TATA Motors Authorized service center.
- • Do not insert any items such as coins, clips, etc. into the seat belt buckles, and be careful not to spill liquids into these parts. If foreign materials get into a seat belt buckle, the seat belt will not work properly.
- Do not wear seat belts over hard, sharp or fragile items in clothing, such as pens, keys, spectacles etc.
- Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a collision.
CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEM (CRS)
TATA MOTORS strongly recommends the use of Child Restraint Systems (CRS) for all children up to age of 12 years and to be placed at recommended positions only. Children travelling without recommended CRS and seated at other positions may face serious injuries in case of a collision. CRS can be installed in the vehicle using seat belts and/or ISOFIX only (if equipped) or ISOFIX with Top Tether (if equipped) or ISOFIX with support leg. If the child seat is equipped with support leg(s), always fit the support leg(s) directly to the floor. Never fit support leg(s) to a footrest or on any other object. The harness system of CRS holds the child in place, and in a collision, acts to keep the child positioned in the seat and reduce the risk of injuries. All children below age of two years must always ride in a rear-facing infant CRS. Keep children in a forward-facing CRS with a harness until they reach the size or weight limit allowed by your CRS manufacturer.
Once your child outgrows the forward-facing CRS, your child is ready for a booster seat.
Selection and Installation of CRS
Always select the CRS that complies with latest safety standards (AIS072 / ECE R44). The CRS are classified according to the child’s size, height and weight. Select the appropriate CRS for your child. Ensure that the CRS is securely installed in the vehicle and subsequently child fits properly in it and wears harness of CRS. For installation, please refer CRS manufacturer’s instruction manual.
If you install a CRS in the rear seat, slide the front seat far enough forward so that the child’s feet do not touch the front seat-back. This will help avoid injury to the child in the event of a collision. After a collision, we recommend to get seat belts, seats, ISOFIX and top-tether anchorages (as may be applicable) investigated at TATA MOTORS Authorized service center.
Each CRS should be used for one child only. If the airbag SRS warning indicator in the instrument cluster illuminates continuously, it means that there is malfunction in the system. Remove the CRS from front passenger seat and contact your TATA MOTORS authorized service center.
SUPPLEMENTARY RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) (AIRBAGS) (if equipped)
The airbag ‘SRS’ system comprises of the following components depending upon the provided safety features in your vehicle.
- Seat belt Pre-tensioners..
- Seat belt with load limiters.
- Driver Airbag.
- Front Passenger Airbag.
- Airbag ‘SRS’ ECU (Electronic Control Unit).
- Collision Sensors.
- SRS wiring harness.
- SRS Warning lamp
The System is active when ignition switch is in the “ON” position or the ignition mode is “ON”. Airbags are designed to inflate in collisions when required. In the event of a collision, the collision sensors will detect signals, and if the Airbag ECU judges that the signals represent a severe collision, will trigger the airbags. The inflated Airbags provide a cushion to the occupants. The Airbag inflates and deflates so quickly that you may not even realize that it has activated. The Airbag will neither hinder your view nor make it harder to exit the vehicle. Airbag inflation is virtually instantaneous and occurs with considerable force, ac-companied by loud noise and smoke, which is normal. The inflated airbag, together with seat belts, limit the movement of an occupant, thereby reducing the risk of injury. When an airbag inflates, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that generates the non-toxic gas used for airbag inflation. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with water. For nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. Also sometimes the smoke can cause breathing problems. In such cases, it is recommended to get fresh air promptly.
After inflation, airbag provides a gradual cushioning effect for the occupant there-after deflates. It is not advisable to drive your vehicle after the airbags have been deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the airbags will not be in place to protect you. after deflates. It is not advisable to drive your vehicle after the airbags have been deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the airbags will not be in place to protect you.
The driver airbag is mounted in the center of the steering wheel. The front passenger airbag is located inside the dashboard in front of the passenger seat. The vehicle fit-ted with the airbags have suitable indications on steering wheel and on dash board. The word ‘AIRBAG’ is embossed on the airbag covers.
