If you have your eyes set on this new premium hatchback, read on to know everything we know so far:
-- The name of the car has been inspired from the name of magnificent bird ‘Albatross’ that symbolises agility and speed.

With lightweight, modular and flexible characteristics, the ALFA architecture has the ability to evolve into a range of modern and youthful vehicles within a short development cycle, says Tata Motors.

-- Power for the Altoz is expected to come from a 1.2 litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel. Tata is also expected to make available a 1.2 litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine to achieve a more competitive entry price point, according to a report.
