  • The Tata Altorz iTurbo will be offered in three variants - XT, XZ & XZ+

  • It gets Tata's iRA connectivity suite as well

The much awaited Tata Altroz iTurbo petrol has finally been unveiled in India and we have been eagerly waiting for it ever since the Altroz was launched back in 2020. Now, the new Tata Altroz iTurbo is just a new variant in the model line-up so nothing has actually changes, except the new motor under the hood. It gets the 1.2-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine sourced from Nexon facelift and in the Altroz it's been tuned to churn out 108 bhp and 140 Nm of peak torque. Just to give you an idea, this powertrain belts out 28 per cent more power and 24 per cent more torque than the naturally aspirated petrol motor and is paired to a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. For those who are wondering, the 'i' in iTurbo stands for 'intelligent'. Tata claims that the Altroz iTurbo does the 0-100 kmph sprint in 11.9 seconds. Tata claims fuel efficiency of 18.13 kmpl on the iTurbo, in accordance with the MIDC cycle.

The Tata Altroz iTurbo petrol will be offered in three variants in India - XT,XZ and XZ+ and will be offered in five body colour options - Harbour Blue, High Street Gold, Midtown Grey, Downtown Red and Avenue White. Like we mentioned earlier, the design remains identical to the current Altroz and you even get the same grey interiors with silver inlays.

Coming back to the powertrain, the regular petrol and diesel powertrains remain part of the Altroz line-up.

Even these engines are mated to a five-speed manual transmission as standard. When launched, the Tata Altroz iTurbo will rivals the likes of the new Hyundai i20 Turbo Petrol and Volkswagen Polo TSI.
