Tata Motors has unveiled the Altroz, which is based on its new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) ARC platform at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Altroz, which is the series production model of the 45X Concept, will be launched in the second half of 2019.
The car is a head-turner for sure and is the biggest hatchback by TATA yet. The car is to be powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The company may offer an AMT variant as optional. The company has not yet revealed any details about the diesel variant. TATA will launch an electric version of Altroz by 2020 which will be capable of doing 300 km in a single charge.
It’s a sub 4 meter hatchback that measures 3,988mm in length, 1754mm in width, 1505mm in height and has 2501mm of wheelbase. The cabin of TATA Altroz takes its cues from TATA Harrier and Nexon. The dashboard sports a 7-inch infotainment system and analog and digital instrument cluster. It gets an all-new flat-bottom steering wheel, dual front airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts, ABS with EBS, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, and cruise control.
The looks of the car on the exterior is as stylish as the cabin of the car. Front of the car gets swept back headlamps with sleek grille, fog lamps and LED daytime running lamps. At the rear, the car gets wraparound LED tail lamps, windscreen integrated spoiler and ALTROZ lettering on the boot lid. The expected price of the car will be between 5-8 lakh and it will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai Elite i20.
