Tata Motors has recently released a new video of the upcoming Tata Altroz iTurbo, where the carmaker is wishing countrymen for Lohri, Pongal, and Makar Sankranti. Read the complete report here.
Tata Motors is all prepped-up to launch a couple of cars this month to mark a great start to this year. The first one on the list is the Tata Altroz iTurbo. The carmaker has recently released a video of the Altroz iTurbo via its YouTube channel. In the video, the carmaker is forwarding wishes for Pongal, Makar Sankranti, and Lohri. The clip also packs in a disclaimer, “Coming Soon”. With this video, it is evident that Tata Motors is planning to launch the Altroz iTurbo in the Indian market soon. While the Altroz iTurbo has been already unveiled, it will officially go on sale by the 22nd of this month itself.
The Altroz iTurbo features a new 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo-petrol motor under its hood, which is capable of developing a peak power output of 110 PS and max torque of 140 Nm. Also, it was expected to come with the option of a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and 6-speed manual gearbox. Sadly, Tata Motors will be offering it with a 5-speed MT only. We can also confirm that the Eco mode button seen on the regular trims of the Altroz is now replaced with a Sport mode button.
The regular trims of the Altroz are offered with two engine options – 1.5L NA petrol and 1.5L turbocharged diesel. The 3-pot petrol motor is good at churning out 86 PS of peak power and 113 Nm of max torque, while the oil burner can produce a rated power output of 90 PS and max torque of 200 Nm. As of now, it is offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox only. The Altroz is priced at Rs. 5.44 lakh for the XE trim and goes up to Rs. 9.09 lakh for the XZ+ trim. The iTurbo variants are likely to boast of a slight premium over the regular trims of the Altroz.
Talking of features, the Altroz is a decently-loaded car. It comes with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, Harman-sourced sound system, steering-mounted audio controls, cruise control, keyless entry, height-adjustable driver seat, 7-inch TFT display for the instrument cluster, ambient lighting and more. For the safety of the occupants, the Altroz gets dual-front airbags, corner stability control, rear parking sensors, seat belt alarm, high-speed alerts, ABS with EBD, seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters as standard affair across the range.
