Tata has put out a teaser of the upcoming variant of the Altroz. The hatchback is all set to get a turbo-petrol engine on January 13. The upcoming variant will also get the new Marina Blue paint scheme. The turbocharged version of the hatchback will go on sale on January 13, 2021, according to latest details available. Once launched, it will be sold alongside the existing naturally aspirated engine. The teaser also shows the Altroz Turbo in a new blue colour with a glossy black roof. The Altroz Turbo in Nepal is likely to be launched in mid 2021.
The Altroz turbo petrol variant will majorly remain identical to the regular model. The Altroz will get a slightly de-tuned version of the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol. The motor is expected to produce a maximum power of 108 bhp at 5,500 rpm against the peak torque of 140 Nm at 1,500-5,500 rpm. Tata Motors is expected to offer the Altroz with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and we might see the automatic dual-clutch transmission (DCT). However, we can expect some minor changes to the interior parts and new exterior colour to differentiate the model.
The Altroz Turbo will come in four variants: XT, XT(O), XZ and XZ(O). The regular lineup also includes lower-spec XE, XM and XM+ variants. The Tata Altroz will be a prime competitor for the Hyundai i20 Turbo, Volkswagen Polo TSI, Honda Jazz CVT and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. The Tata Altroz range starts from NRs. 30 lakhs in Nepal and the new turbocharged mill is expected to be priced from NRs. 35 lakhs. More details will be available closer to the launch.
