Tata will be launching the all-new Altroz Turbo in India this month. Here are the newest details about the upcoming Tata Altroz Turbo.
Tata Motors has created quite a success story with the new Altroz which is the company’s first entrant into the premium hatchback segment. The Tata Altroz seems to have many things on point, like a distinctively stylish look and a well-loaded cabin. However, the only grouse that the Altroz still misses out on to offer a lively drive is a powerful turbocharged engine option. While some arch-rivals of the Altroz like Hyundai i20 and VW Polo have already had one in their lineup, it’s time for Tata to give a straight response. Excitingly, Tata is set to launch the Altroz Turbo in India this month.
As reported earlier, the new Tata Altroz Turbo will get the power from a detuned version of Nexon’s engine, specifically a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol mill making 110 HP and 140 Nm of torque. It will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox upon launch, along with a 6-speed DCT in the pipeline. To recap, the current Tata Altroz is available with a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that churns out 83 PS of max power and 113 Nm of torque. There’s also a 1.5-litre diesel motor that produces 90 PS of max power and 200 Nm of peak torque. Both the mills are coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission.
The upcoming Tata Altroz Turbo has spied in India for quite some times. According to some recent report, the new Tata Altroz Turbo will weight around 980 kg that will translate into a sprightly performance for the turbocharged model. The all-new Altroz will fiercely fare against the likes of Hyundai i20 Turbo and the VW Polo GT variant. The new-gen Hyundai i20 shares the same 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with its Venue brother, propelling 120 HP and 172 Nm of torque. The Hyundai i20 Turbo prices start from Rs 8.79 lakh to Rs 11.32 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). There comes the 2020 VW Polo 1.0 TSI that develops 110 HP 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter unit.
