Ad

Tata Motors launched their first ever premium hatchback Altroz in the market last year. The Altroz is currently the safest car in the premium hatchback segment. It had received a 5 Star rating in Global NCAP crash test. Tata Altroz competes with cars like Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz, Volkswagen Polo in the segment. Altroz is without any doubt has a very unique design. We have seen several render images of Altroz hatchback on the internet but, here we have an image where the artist has rendered an MPV that is actually based on the Altroz premium hatchback.

The render image has been shared by BINNY ZACHARIA on his Instagram page. The render artist has created an MPV that is based on the Altroz premium hatchback. Altroz as we all know is based on Agile Light Flexible Advanced Architecture or better known as ALFA platform. What makes this platform special is its flexibility. It is flexible enough to accommodate different body types. Tata had mentioned that they will be using this same platform for some of their upcoming models. This platform can accommodate SUV, sedan, hatchback and even MPV body types on it. Tata’s upcoming micro SUV HBX is also using the same ALFA platform.

Coming back to the render, it gets Altroz like sleek and swept back headlamps. The LED DRLs and fog lamps are placed lower to that. The front of the car continues to look muscular. The side profile is where the major difference is seen. As this is an MPV, the overall length of the car has increased. This has been done in order to accommodate the third row of seats. It looks like the wheelbase on this render remains the same as hatchback.

The other noticeable change here are the blacked out alloy wheels. This along with the red calipers give this MPV a sporty look. In comparison to the regular hatchback, the ground clearance on this MPV render looks less. All the four wheels get disc brakes. There is a roof rail on and the design of the boot remains the same as the hatchback. The rear bumper however looks slightly different from the regular hatchback.

Tata Altroz is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. There is a 1.2 litre, three cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine. The petrol engine generates 84 Bhp and 113 Nm of torque. The 1.5 litre diesel engine on Altroz generates 89 Bhp and 200 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual gearbox only.

Recently, Tata also introduced a turbocharged petrol version of Altroz in the market. This version is known as Altroz i-Turbo and is powered by a 1.2 litre, turbo petrol engine. This engine generates 108 bhp and 140 Nm of torque. This is also available with a manual gearbox. Tata is expected to come with an automatic transmission option for Altroz in the future. The render seen here is a product of artists’ imagination and Tata currently has plans for launching such a product in the market.
