Tata Altroz features:

Tata has finally launched Tata Altroz a premium hatchback. The car which was first previewed in the form of the 45X concept at Auto Expo 2018, is powered by BS6 petrol and diesel engines with prices starting from INR 5.29 lakh.

Altroz is offered with the choice of two engines – 1.2-liter petrol and 1.5-liter engine. While it has 86PS and 113Nm, the oil burner, a detuned version of the Nexon’s diesel engine, churns out 90PS and 200Nm. For now, both engines are only available with a 5-speed manual. However, Tata Motors is expected to offer a turbo-petrol engine along with a DCT auto in the coming months.
