Tata Altroz production begins in India? Spied for the first time

The Tata Altroz has been spotted completely undisguised for the first time in India at what seems to be Tata Motors manufacturing plant.

Tata Motors first mid-size premium hatchback, the Altroz, is all set to launch in India soon. The carmaker made the global debut of this vehicle recently at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Based on the all-new ALPHA architecture, this hatchback is going to compete against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai Elite i20.

The vehicle seen in the images resembles to quite an extent with the one that was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show this year. The only major difference that you can spot is the design of the alloy wheels. For starters they do not bear a dual-tone colour scheme. And they clearly are smaller in size, probably around 16-inch.

Other than this, it is clearly visible that this hatchback comes with a projector lamp set-up. And that they are likely to come with LED lamp instead of halogens. The tail-lights are also going to be LED.

According to recent media reports, the Tata Altroz will get two petrol and one diesel unit. There will be the Tiago’s 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine. And there will be the Nexon’s 1.2-litre, turbo-petrol engine in the line-up as well. The diesel engine is likely to be the Nexon’s 1.5-litre motor.
