The Tata Altroz's launch has been reportedly postponed to early 2020, and in the meantime, Tata Motors is taking its places around the world to prepare for the same. Recently, a UK-registered unit was spotted in Minsk, Belarus, where it was brought for an ad shoot.
The Tata Altroz has been designed on the basis of the IMPACT Design 2.0 philosophy, the second such product after the Harrier. It is based on an in-house developed 'Advanced Modular Platform (Alfa-Arc)' and the very same platform will be used for all of the company's future sub-4 metre models. It is said to be offered with three engine options – the 85 PS 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit of the Tiago, a 102 PS version of the Nexon's 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol unit and a 90 PS version of the Nexon's 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel unit. All the engines on offer at launch will be BS-VI compliant.
On the inside, the Tata Altroz will feature a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, ambient lighting, cruise control, google assistant and a segment-first part-digital instrument cluster, as visible from the short promo clip (below).
The Tata Altroz was supposed to be on sale by now, but its launch has been postponed to early-2020. It will be priced from somewhere between INR 5.5-6.0 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). In other recent updates, Tata Motors introduced Pro Edition accessory packs for 5 models, including the Tata Tigor.
