Earlier we reported that Tata Altroz has been spied on Himalayan roads and then a base variant of the premium hatchback was spotted. However, all the spy shots were in camouflage and clearly, the new spy shots here reveal the Tata Altroz in flesh with gold paint.
The metallic paint shade is the same as seen at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show and the car is undergoing for a TVC shoot as it appears. Tata Altroz is set to launch in July this year.
Based on the Impact 2.0 design as that of Tata Harrier, it features a split design headlamp with LED taillights, tidy front grille and a neat housing for fog lights which also features cornering assist. The car is built on the new ALFA (agile light flexible advanced) platform and will thus provide better safety features and a sufficed NCAP crash rating.

Dual front airbags, ISOFIX child mount seats, front passengers seat belt warning, speed-alert system, ABS with EBD are some of the safety features which will come as standard. Park assist camera, day and night IRVMS’s can also be expected.
Tata Altroz is likely to come in three engine options, two petrol and one diesel engine. It is reported that the premium hatchback will first be launched in a diesel engine which is the same as one in Nexon. However, the power figures will be detuned and it will make 90 bhp. Torque figures will also be lower. This way the fuel efficiency of the car will improve.
The 1.2-litre petrol engine will be the same as seen in Tiago with power up to 84bhp with 114Nm of peak torque. A new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine is expected which will generate 102bhp with 142Nm of torque. It could get a seven speed dual clutch transmission but there is no confirmed news from the manufacturer.
Tata Altroz is expected to be loaded with features too to stand against its competitors. A touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can be expected. Automatic climate controls, steering mounted controls, cruise control, tyre-pressure monitoring system, semi-digital instrument cluster along with other premium features too.
Upon its launch, it will compete against Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz, Toyota Glanza, Hyundai Elite i20 and Volkswagen Polo. Expected prices can be between Rs 6 lakh – 9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
