Two red-coloured Tata Altroz units have been spied in a parking lot, courtesy ZigWheels.com. The official debut of the production-spec Tata Altroz will take place later this month.
The Tata Altroz seen here has no design changes from the Tata Altroz Geneva Edition introduced in March. Its alloy wheels, though, are different. It has a wide front grille flanked by blacked-out dual-barrel projector headlamps, a slim humanity line and a beefy front bumper large mid-set fog lamps as seen on the Geneva Edition. At the rear, it has a unique two-part boot lid which is a rather complex three-dimensional tailgate design. Its tail light elements are connected by a translucent black applique which runs across the width of the tailgate. On the inside, the spy shot (below) reveals that the Altroz will get a flat-bottom steering wheel with silver inserts. The cabin has a dual-tone grey and black scheme, and contrast white stitching on the seats.
The Tata Altroz is the second car after Tata Harrier created using the IMPACT Design 2.0 philosophy. It is based on the newly developed Advanced Modular Platform (Alfa-Arc) which will be used for all future sub-4 metre Tata models. Its exterior features will include projector headlamps with LED DRLs, 16-inch alloy wheels, electrically operated ORVMs with turn indicators and LED tail lamps. Inside, the car will feature a semi-digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment system which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
The Tata Altroz will be available with Tata Tiago's 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol engine which pushes out 85 PS of maximum power and 114 Nm of peak torque, a 1.2L turbocharged petrol engine (102 PS/140 Nm) and a 91.25 PS 1.5L turbocharged diesel engine. The turbocharged engines will be borrowed from the Tata Nexon. While a 5-speed manual transmission will be standard, a new dual-clutch automatic transmission could also be offered at a later stage.
The Tata Altroz will likely be launched in August and it will be pitted against the Hyundai i20, Maruti Baleno and Honda Jazz. A sedan version was planned, but a premium B-SUV is in the making now instead.
