Tata shone the spotlight at the Altroz premium hatchback at this year’s Geneva Motor show in March. Since then, the car has been spotted testing on several occasions on the streets with heavy disguise. In the same set, a few more photos of the hatchback have been snapped recently. The slightly visible taillights in the spy shots seem to be identical to the car that was showcased earlier this year.
Ahead of its launch, the company recently unveiled a special preview website of the Altroz. 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.
-- Tata Motors is likely to showcase the production-ready form of the Altroz in India by mid-July.
-- The Altroz is based on Tata’s 45X Concept that was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo in New Delhi.
-- Tata Altroz has already been unveiled internationally at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
-- The Altroz carries on with Impact 2.0 design philosophy that debuted on the Harrier. It aims at reinventing the urban car design with greater emphasis on bringing connectivity and everyday mobility together.
-- The Altroz will be the first product to be engineered on Tata’s new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) architecture. 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.
-- The model will be a direct rival to other premium hatchbacks in India like the Hyundai i20, the Honda Jazz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the recently launched Toyota Glanza.
-- Tata Motors claims that Altroz will shine above all its contemporaries with its agility, speed, and efficiency along with best-in-class performance and in-cabin space.
-- Tata Motors says that the new premium hatchback will be designed for five-star safety rating.
-- Tata Altroz is likely to be priced in the range of Rs 5.5-8.5 lakh.
-- 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.
