Tata Altroz Turbo is about to enter the market. The new turbo-petrol powertrain is more powerful than the regular version.
Earlier this year, Tata has launched the Tata Altroz in the Indian market. After a long inactive episode due to the pandemic outbreak, Tata is ready to get back to the market with new vehicles including the Gravitas and HBX. Apart from launching the new models, the homegrown carmaker will add a new turbo variant to Tata Altroz’s line-up. Before hitting the market, the Tata Altroz Turbo was spied during a road test. Here is the video of the upcoming Tata Altroz Turbo.

As we can see from the video, the Tata Altroz Turbo bears no difference from the regular version. The only thing that helps us identify the turbo version is i-Turbo badging on the boot lid. In addition, Tata will also add a new sky-blue colour option to the Altroz. However, it is not yet confirmed if the new colour scheme will be offered across the range or it will be exclusively available for the turbocharged version only.
As per the leaked specifications, the Tata Altroz is able to belt out a top power of 108 Bhp and a maximum torque of 140 Nm. Compared to the Volkswagen Polo TSI’s power output (108 Bhp and 172 Nm), the power figure of the Altroz Turbo is comparable while the torque figure is lower. As for the transmission option, Tata Altroz Turbo is expected to come with 6-speed manual gearbox. The dual-clutch automatic unit might arrive later.
Tata Altroz Turbo will be more powerful than the regular version
Before the launch of the turbocharged version, Tata Atrloz was available with two engine choices, a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated 3-cylinder petrol and a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel unit. The former is capable of making 85 Bhp and 113 Nm while the latter can churn out 89 Bhp and 200 Nm. The underpowered petrol engine was among the biggest issues of the Tata Altroz. However, thanks to the introduction of the new turbocharged petrol engine, it will no longer be a matter of concern for Altroz customers.
