Tata Motors is on of India’s leading car manufacturer. They have a variety of products in their portfolio and last year, they launched their first ever premium hatchback Altroz in the market. Like many other Tata products, Altroz also is a well built product. It is the only premium hatchback in the segment to get 5 star safety rating from Global NCAP crash test. It competes with cars like Hyundai i20, Maruti Baleno, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz in the segment. We have seen several render videos and images of Altroz in the past. Here we have another render where the artist has digitally rendered an coupe crossiver based on Altroz hatchback.
The render image has been created by Praveen C John and shared on his Instagram page fallen_3377. The artist actually redesigned Altroz hatchback slightly to get the desired crossover-ishlook. It has a coupe like design which we have seen in cars like BMW X6 and Mahindra XUV500 Aero Concept. As we already know, Tata Altroz is based on ALFA architecture which is quite flexible. It can support a variety of body types like MUVs and SUVs. Their upcoming HBX micro SUV is also based on the same platform.
Coming to the render, the front of the Altroz X as the artist calls it has been slightly redesigned to give it a crossover look. It retains the sleek headlamps but, the projectors are replaced for all LED units. The front grille has been redesigned slightly to give it a distinct look. There are chrome bits and Tata logo on the front grille. Coming down, the Altroz X has a redesigned bumper. The bumper looks quite muscular and there are gloss black garnishes around the fog lamps. The lower air dam completes the crossover coupe look of the car at the front.
Artist has also included a splitter at the front. Coming to the side profile, the company fitted alloy wheels that come with Altroz have been removed and replaced with all black multi-spoke alloy wheels. These are 18 inch alloys that give Altroz X, its desired look. The side profile of the car gets a coupe like design and that looks sporty on it. There is ample amount of ground clearance and the roof has been blacked out too.
The sloping roof design is what gives Altroz X a unique look. This coupe like design now gives it a sporty stance and the flame copper paint job elevates the overall look. We should mention that Tata currently has no plans of launching an SUV based on Altroz. This is just a render and a product of artists imagination. Coming back to Altroz, the hatchback as mentioned is one of the safest car in the segment. The hatchback is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. Tata also launched a turbo petrol version of the hatchback in the market earlier this year. None of the engine options on Tata Altroz come with an automatic transmission. Tata might introduce an automatic transmission in future.
