Mechanically, it will derive power from a 1.2-litre, three-pot turbocharged petrol mill, which develops 110 PS of peak power and 140 Nm of torque. Transmission duties will be done by a 5-speed MT. The automaker has plans to introduce a new DCT gearbox with the premium hatchback at a later stage.
After the introduction of Altroz iTurbo, the carmaker will launch its new flagship SUV- Tata Safari. The all-new Tata Safari will be the production-ready version Gravitas and will be based on the company’s Omega platform. This is the same platform, which also underpins Tata Harrier. Mechanically, it’ll get propelled by a 20-litre Kryotec, turbo diesel mill, which shreds out 170bhp of power and will comes paired with a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The same powertrain option does duties in Tata Harrier.
