Here's what the Tata Altroz MPV could look like if it ever makes it to production to rival the likes of Maruti Ertiga
Tata launched Altroz in the Indian market early this year. The hatchback is doing quite well in terms of overall sales. It is the first premium hatchback launched by the carmaker in our market, and it rubs shoulders with the likes of Hyundai Elite i20, Maruti Baleno and Honda Jazz. Tata Altroz has a unique design language and is the safest car in its segment. The car has scored 5-star rating at the Global NCAP crash test. Here we have a digital render that shows how the MPV version of the Altroz would look like. As most of you may know that Tata Altroz is based on company’s ALFA (Agile Light Flexible and Advanced) platform. The special part about this platform is that it is quite flexible and can accommodate different types of body. This render has been made by a digital artist named Binny Zacharia.
He has created an MPV, which is highly inspired by the Altroz hatchback. In terms of styling, it looks quite identical to that of the Tata Altroz. It employs sweptback sleek headlamps and an aggressive-looking front fascia. On the side, the Altroz MPV gets sporty looking blacked-out alloy wheels. As compared to the premium hatchback, it seems like that it is sitting close to the ground. As one can see that the overall length of the MPV has been increased to accommodate extra row seats, but the wheelbase of the MPV remain the same.
At the back, the taillights feature the same design as the regular model of the car. But, the MPV version of the car features disc brakes at the back. If launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Maruti Ertiga. The regular model of the premium hatchback is powered by a 1.2-litre, three-pot petrol and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel motor. At the moment, both the engine options are only offered with a manual transmission. Tata has plans to soon introduce turbocharged petrol version of the hatchback and it’ll come mated to an automatic gearbox.
