Tata Altoz, the much-awaited premium hatchback from the Indian manufacturer will soon be launched in the Indian market. Tata has been testing the all-new Altroz for a long time in the Indian market and a few times the vehicle has been spotted without a camouflage too. The Tata Altroz will be launched in the coming months and recently, a leaked video shows the cabin of the hatchback. The video was intended to announce the brand has started accepting official bookings. While most of the time Altroz has been spotted in its fully-loaded avatar.
Recently, a set of pictures shows what the upcoming car will look like when it is launched in the mid-level trims. The car was caught alongside the top-end trim.
The new pictures by Motortech show the Altroz parked on an empty ground. The vehicle spotted received steel rims instead of the alloys, which are likely to be launched in the mid-trim. However, the production version will definitely get the wheel caps since it is a premium hatchback that will take on the likes of Hyundai Elite i20, Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno in the Indian market.
The pictures do not reveal much about the features though. On the outside, the mid-level trim seems to be carrying a single headlamp set-up. However, instead of the projector lamps, a multi-reflector seems to be in the place. Also, the headlamp is longer than the top-end trim. Since the lower bumper lamp housing will remain empty in the mid-level variant, the indicators will be incorporated in the same headlamp housing.
The higher trim variant gets two separate housings and the headlamp unit is much sleeker, which makes it look more premium. It should be noted that all the variants of the Tata Harrier get the same split headlamp set-up. However, since the Altroz will be priced much lower than the Harrier, a few measures seem to be in place in an attempt to make the price tag attractive. Tata has always been known for their extremely well-priced products. The Altroz is not expected to be any different from the other models.
At the time of the launch, Tata may not launch the automatic version of the car, similar to the Tata Harrier. In fact, Tata may only launch the car with a diesel engine and later add the petrol and automatic options to the line-up.
On the inside, the Altroz will be inspired by the Tata Harrier. It gets a similar floating-type instrument cluster and a semi-digital driver information cluster. This will be the first-ever premium hatchback from the brand and it will be based on an all-new ALFA platform.
