Tata Altroz hatchback spotted undisguised ahead of launch
This photo seems to reaffirm what we have already seen of the Altroz. The Tata has large lighting elements in the front bumper. The complexity of the design is evident from the side profile though, which shows off its multi-layered layout. The Altroz carries on with Impact 2.0 design philosophy that debuted on the Harrier but still carries traits of earlier Tata hatchbacks. The Altroz is essentially the production version of the 45X concept shown at the 2018 Auto Expo.
There are some interesting design elements throughout, like the split roof spoiler, turn blinkers mounted along the edge of the front door, pillar mounted rear door handles and a unique shape for the glasshouse.
The Altroz will feature keyless entry and go, 16-inch rims, a flat-bottom steering wheel, automatic climate control and body-coloured bezels around the A/C vents. The dashboard has a multi-layered design too and will feature instrumentation similar to the Harrier's - featuring an analogue speedometer and a large multi-info-display for displaying other vehicular data. The infotainment too is similar to the Harrier's albeit smaller in size but with a similar user interface.
Power for the Altoz is expected to come from a 1.2l turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5l turbocharged diesel. Tata is also expected to make available a 1.2l naturally-aspirated petrol engine to achieve a more competitive entry price point.
The Altroz is based on Tata's ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) modular architecture and is expected to spawn other body styles in the years to come. The Altroz premium hatchback will be launched in India by mid-2019, confirms Tata.
