The Tata Altroz has been snapped sans camouflage on the Indian roads for the first time. New spy shots posted by Team-BHP forum member Karan561 show the hatchback undergoing a TVC shoot. Its launch is likely to take place by July.
The Tata Altroz seen in the spy shots carries the same metallic gold paint as the Tata Altroz Geneva Edition that was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The design, obviously, is the same. This is the second model after the Tata Harrier to be designed as per the IMPACT Design 2.0 philosophy. The B-segment hatchback measures 3,988 mm in length, 1,754 mm in width and 1,505 mm in height. It has a 2,501 mm wheelbase. It is the first model underpinned by the indigenously developed Advanced Modular Platform, which is also known as Alfa-Arc.
The Tata Altroz will be available with the Tata Tiago's 1.2L N/A petrol engine that produces 85 PS and 114 Nm of torque, a newly developed 1.2L turbocharged petrol engine that produces 102 PS and 140 Nm of torque and a 1.5L turbocharged diesel engine. The latter will be the Tata Nexon's engine, but with the maximum power detuned to 90 hp (91.25 PS). The maximum torque should also be lower. A 5-speed manual transmission is a given, while a dual-clutch automatic unit is in the rumour mill. There was speak of an optional mild-hybrid system, but there haven't been any recent developments on that matter.
Key features of the Tata Altroz will include projector headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, semi-digital instrument cluster and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android.
The Tata Altroz will compete with likes of Maruti Baleno and Hyundai i20 in India. It could be priced from around INR 5.5 lakh (ex-showroom). A pure electric variant will likely follow in 2021.
