Tata Motors is one of India’s popular car manufacturer. They have a number of vehicles in their portfolio. Earlier this year, Tata updated their vehicles as part of the BS6 emission norms. Almost all the vehicles in Tata’s portfolio received some sort of facelift and feature update. Tata also launched a premium hatchback in the market named Altroz. It is Tata’s first ever premium hatchback and is currently competing with cars like Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz. Tata Altroz is currently the only car in this segment to have scored 5 stars at Global NCAP crash test. This makes it the safest car in the segment. Here we have a video that shows how a 2 door version of this premium hatchback would look like.
The video has been uploaded by Wheel Sketch on their youtube channel. The render artist has made minor changes in the regular Altroz hatchback to make it a 2-door hot hatchback. The artist starts with the front bumper. The front bumper is extended down to give it an aggressive stance. The bumper now gets air vents and similar air vents are also seen on the bonnet of the car.
Moving to the side of the car, Altroz gets a set of new wheels which look sporty enough. The stock alloy wheels were looking too premium and were not going with the sporty character of the hatchback. The artist then removes the rear door completely and extends the front door towards the rear to give it a proper 2-door hot hatchback stance. apart from these minor changes, the artist has also added a side skirt and scoop to give it a sporty look.
There are black accents on several parts of the body and the roof has also been completely blacked out. The alloy wheels on the car are of the same design that we have seen 2020 Harrier SUV. The sportier edition of the Altroz will be powered by a 1.2 litre turbo petrol engine that is seen in nexon compact SUV. Tata is working on a powerful version of the regular Altroz which will be getting the same engine. It will be paired with a 7-speed DCT gearbox. This engine generates 120 Ps of power in Nexon but, it is expected to be tuned slightly to get a perfect balance between power and fuel efficiency.
Other premium hatchbacks that get a turbo petrol in the segment are Volkswagen Polo and Hyundai i20. All new Hyundia i20 only offers the turbo petrol engine with a 7-speed DCT gearbox. Tata Altroz carries IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy and is based on ALFA platform. This is a versatile platform which can be used on SUV, sedan and MPVs and Tata will be using it on their upcoming micro SUV HBX which was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year.
The 2-door hatchback seen in the video above is just artists imagination and Tata currently has no plans of launching a 2-door version of Altroz in the market. Along with turbo petrol version of Altroz, Tata is also working on a 6-seater SUV Gravitas and BS6 version of Tata Hexa.
