Powering the new Tata Altroz iTurbo will be a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged engine, sourced from Nexon. However, for the Altroz, Tata has de-tuned the motor, which is likely to offer 108 bhp and 140 Nm of peak torque. The same engine on the Nexon SUV produces 118 bhp and 170 Nm of power figure. The car will be capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 kmph in just 11.9 seconds. Transmission duties will be carried out a 5-speed manual gearbox only.
Visually the new Tata Altroz iTurbo will remain largely identical to the standard model, featuring the same glossy black grille with swept-back projector headlamps LED DRLs, large fog lamps and a wide airdam. It will also continue to get the optional black roof and black styling elements at the rear. Inside, the new Tata Altroz iTurbo will get light grey interiors with leather seats. The features will remain similar to the standard model. The turbocharged iteration of the Altroz will also come equipped with Tata's iRA technology offering a range of connected functions.
