Tata Motors is all set to launch the Altroz premium hatchback in India in a few weeks from now. The automaker has been testing the car extensively and while the images of the Altroz’s exteriors were leaked a few months ago, here’s what the car’s interiors will look like. The spyshots of the car’s dashboard and instrument cluster indicate contemporary interiors. The interiors are likely to be finished in black and grey, and there’s a blue accent running across the center console as well. Soft touch plastics seem to be on offer, and the car will get a analog-digital instrument cluster where the speedometer is an analog unit while the tachometer is digital. The steering wheel is well finished, and gets the typical Tata layout with audio controls on the left hand side while the right hand side hosts cruise control.

The spyshots also indicate a five speed manual gearbox. What”s not clear is whether this particular example is a petrol or a diesel engine. There’s a strong likelihood that we’re looking at picture of the petrol powered Tata Altroz’s interiors. We are saying this as the petrol engine of the Altroz is likely to be the 1.2 liter-3 cylinder unit borrowed from the Tiago JTP.
That explains the 5 speed manual gearbox. The diesel motor is likely to be the unit from the Tata Nexon, with a 1.5 liter displacement and a 6 speed manual gearbox. Initially, the Tata Altroz is unlikely to get an automatic gearbox. The other spyshot of the prmeium hatchback’s interiors shows squarish AC vents with a satin chrome finish and the door locks also get the same finish. There are fabric seats on offer and the center console hosts a floating touchscreen infotainment unit.
We expect Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a host of other features packed into the touchscreen. The stereo could be a 6/8 speaker unit from Harman. Another detail from the spyshots is that the Altroz will get automatic climate control. There’s a 12V charging socket on the center console as well. The car is expected to be launched within days from now. It will take on the Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz and the Hyundai Elite i20. In terms of pricing, the Tata Altroz is likely to undercut its rivals. The Altroz will be the first car from Tata Motors to be based on the ALFA platform, which will underpin a range of new cars in the coming years.
