Full Specs - Altroz XZ Revotron 1.2 BS6 NA 3-cyl Petrol - Page 1Tata Motors has released the detailed specifications of the upcoming Altroz hatchback.
The new Altroz measures 3,990 mm in length, 1,755 mm in width, 1,523 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,501 mm. The car has a ground clearance of 165 mm. It comes with a 37-litre fuel tank and has a 345-litre boot.
The Altroz comes with automatic projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, rain sensing wipers, 7-inch MID, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment head-unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
It also gets automatic climate control with rear AC vents, cruise control and Multi Drive Modes - Eco and City.
The new Altroz will be available with BS6 compliant petrol and diesel engines.
The 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 85 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm @ 3,300 rpm.
The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit puts out 89 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm @ 1,250-3,000 rpm.
Both engines will be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission.
However, we have some exclusive details for enthusiasts looking out for a performance-oriented version. A turbocharged petrol motor is under development for the Altroz, and will make its way into production soon.
The aforementioned model will be powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder, turbocharged (VGT), BS6 petrol engine that will put out a maximum of 100bhp (102PS) and a peak torque of 140Nm (83Kw).
This motor will be available with two transmissions - a five-speed manual and a seven-speed DCT.
Unlike the dry-clutch DCT's in the Hyundai Venue and Kia Seltos, the dual-clutch automatic gearbox in the Altroz will be a wet-clutch unit. So, it is unlikely to face heating issue.
We can also confirm that the Tata Altroz will be launched in India in January 2020.
Our sources claim that the performance-oriented Altroz will enter into production soon, and a market launch can be expected around the festive period (August to October 2020).
The hot hatch will feature a more sophisticated suspension setup, which should augment its handling prowess.
We can also expect the hot hatchback to feature certain cosmetic changes to complement its sporty demeanour.
As far as pricing is concerned, the turbocharged Tata Altroz is expected to carry a premium of around Rs 30,000 over the regular version. The sportier Altroz will compete against the Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS and the Volkswagen Polo GT TSI.
