The production-spec Tata Altroz was revealed on 3 December 2019. With the reveal, it was confirmed that Tata Altroz is bound to receive two BS-VI engine options in the form a 1.2L naturally-aspirated petrol and a 1.5L turbo-diesel unit. Now Carwale has claimed that there is also a turbocharged petrol motor under development for the Altroz.
The new engine will be a performance-oriented 1.2L turbocharged petrol unit which will be added to the portfolio in late-2020. If you recall, this is the same powertrain the Geneva-spec Tata Altroz was seen with. This engine has been rated to deliver 102 PS of maximum power and 140 Nm of peak torque. And will be available with either a five-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT.
While the turbo-petrol unit will be added to it in the later stage, initially it will be available in the below engine options.
|Aspect||Petrol Engine||Diesel Engine|
|Type||1.2 L BS6 Petrol||1.5 L BS6 Diesel|
|Cubic Capacity||1199 cc||1497 cc|
|Max Power||86 PS (63kW) at 6000 rpm||90 PS at 4000 rpm|
|Max Torque||113 Nm at 3300 rpm||200 Nm at 1250-3000 rpm|
|Transmission Type||5 Speed Manual Transmission||5 Speed Manual Transmission|
As revealed in the official brochures, the Tata Altroz will be available in five grades: XE, XM, XT, XZ and XZ (O). Apart from this, there will also be a variety of customization packs available for customers interested in high-end features. Skyline Silver, Downtown Red, Highstreet Gold, Avenue White and Midtown Grey will be all the exterior colour choices on the Altroz.
