Let’s have a look at a more robust version of the Tata Altroz, the Altroz NRG, which has been imagined in a recent rendering.
In September last year, the Tata Tiago NRG, a rougher-looking version of the popular Tiago hatchback was launched in India. Recently, a similar version of the Tata Altroz has also been imagined in a creative rendering by IAB’s digital illustrator, Shoeb Kalania.

The above image indicates that the Altroz NRG would come with an outstanding plastic cladding all over the lower body. Some other noticeable features consist of roof rails, bigger alloy rims, faux skid plates and black bits which will take the place of the chrome trims. The higher ground clearance lends a bolder stance to the vehicle and helps improve its ability to deal with bad road conditions.
Being the production model of the Tata 45X concept, the Altroz was revealed at the ongoing 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is the second product from the home-grown automaker to be designed based on the Impact Design 2.0 philosophy. The Altroz is also supported by the Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) developed by Tata.

Under the hood of the Tata Altroz is likely to be a brand-new 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol motor, which will be mated to a mild-hybrid tech and a dual-clutch automatic gearbox, both of which will be the first time ever to be equipped on a Tata Motors’ product. Moreover, the domestic automaker is going to exclude the diesel motor from the Tata Altroz’s engine options, due to its infeasibility, considering the high expenses to make it comply with the BS-VI emission standards. Having said that, the Altroz will become the pioneer in the next-gen EVs produced by Tata.
