Tata launched the all-new Harrier in the Indian market earlier this year and the SUV has gained massive popularity in the market. Tata is now working to launch its second product this year and it will be again an all-new car. Tata showcased the all-new Altroz, which will become the first-ever premium hatchback from the brand in the Indian market at the Geneva Motor Show. Well, the launch of the Altroz is nearing and the all-new car was spotted on the roads without any camouflage on it.
The all-new Tata Altroz was spotted by T-BHP member karan561 and reportedly, it was on its way to shoot a TVC. The all-new Tata Altroz will be launched in the Indian market in July or August. Tata is yet to reveal a specific launch date in the Indian market but highly likely, the launch is expected to happen around that time. The all-new Altroz will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai Elite i20 in the Indian market.
The Altroz uses an all-new design that follows the IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy. It measures just short of 4-meters in length. The front of the Altroz gets a modern design. The sleek headlamps of the Altroz are integrated into the grille. The Altroz also gets large fog lamps mounted in the bumper that makes it look quite interesting and adds an intimidating feeling to the car. The spy pictures show the Altroz only from the rear. The rear too gets an interesting design. The upper part of the boot lid is all-black and the tail lamps are enclosed in an all-black gloss insert with LED tail lamps. It sure looks very aggressive. The design is inspired by the Tata Harrier’s rear design elements. The Altroz that was spotted on the roads was seen in the flagship colour.
It should be noted that according to reports, the upcoming Tata Altroz may only offer a diesel engine only initially. At the start, Tata may only offer a single fuel option with the car and later a petrol engine option can be added. The exact engine that will power the all-new Altroz is not known but it is likely to be the 1.5-litre engine that is also available with the Tata Nexon. In the Nexon, it generates a maximum power of 108 Bhp and a peak torque of 260 Nm. In the Altroz, the power figures are expected to be revised. In all likeliness, Tata is expected to offer 92 Bhp – 201 Nm tune with the Altroz. With the BS-VI emission norms becoming mandatory in the near future, we may see Tata using only updated petrol engines in the future. However, it is not clear on why Tata may not offer the engine option with the Altroz initially.
