Tata Motors took the wraps off its much-awaited Altroz hatchback at the 2019 Geneva motor show. In its production guise, the Altroz will take on the likes of the Hyundai i20, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the Honda Jazz.

The Altroz measures 3,988mm in length, 1,754mm in width and 1,505mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,501mm.

Here’s a look at how it stacks up against its key rivals, the Baleno, i20 and Jazz.

The Altroz is likely to come with first-in-class 17-inch alloy wheels coupled with 205/50 R17 tyres – at least for the top-spec car.

Under the hood, the Altroz showcased at the Geneva motor show was powered by a 1,198cc, three-cylinder petrol engine good for 102hp at 5,500rpm. It produces a max torque of 140Nm at 1,750-4,000rpm. Tata has not confirmed the engine’s aspiration, but based on the output figures, this 1.2-litre motor could be a turbocharged unit. Tata Motors is expected to launch the Altroz hatchback in India in the second half of 2019, where it will sit above the popular Tiago hatchback in its domestic line-up.

The Altroz is based on Tata’s modular ALFA platform, which can also be used to accommodate a full-electric powertrain. The company has also showcased the Altroz with an EV powertrain at the 2019 Geneva motor show.

they look like they retract, like when your not using the screen, it retracts into the dashboard,

but could be very wrong,

saw it once on a XJ jaguar, and thought thats where they got the idea from.

I know what retract mean & none of the JLR group products have screens that retract. Afaik.

Velar & latest Rangies have screens that can tilt slightly, that's obviously not the same thing as retract.

I thought the exact opposite. Looks lumpy and misshapen like it's already been in a multi car bumper bashing.
I see what your saying, subtle lines tend to be prettier, like this





EDIT: I could just stare at this all day and never get tired of it.

Will probably never see it in S.A.... :(
I asked the guy from Headoffice when he came to have a look at my Bolt @ the Boksburg branch if he knows yet if we are going to get the new models in SA. He said they should have a answer from India in the next month or two.

Tata's Altroz is an Indian Polo

Despite having to deal with the nightmare of its souring investment in JLR, Tata is forging ahead with development of its Altroz hatchback.

The Indian automotive giant has confirmed an evolution of the Altroz, revealed at the Geneva auto show this week. Imagined as an Indian Polo rival, the Altroz is built on Tata’s Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) platform.

Tata claims that its ALFA engineering project allows for a modular approach to body styles and engine options (even electrification) on a single platform. It’s an industrial engineering copy of the principles which underpin most of VW’s vehicle architectures such as MQB, which serves as a platform to no less than five Audis and fourteen different VW models.

The styling features a dual-headlamp design, flared wheel arches, door creases and strangely asymmetrical windows, with the front doors housing much more glass than the rear doors. Inside there is fully digital instrumentation and a 7-inch infotainment screen which sits atop the dash, framing the centre-vents.

Powering Altroz is a 1.2-litre petrol engine, good for 75 kW and 140 Nm. Classified in terms of size the Altroz is 55 mm shorter, 26 mm narrower and 7 mm taller than VW’s current eighth-generation Polo.

Although the compact hatchback segment is defined by an aspiration to become everything VW as achieved with Polo, the reality is that Altroz’s price positioning will likely be closer to Hyundai’s i10 or Suzuki’s Baleno when it launches to select global markets towards the end of this year.

I sure hope that South Africa will be considered as one of the 'select global markets' when TATA launches it later this year.
