We’ve all been waiting for it – and now, Tata has finally revealed the much talked-about turbo petrol version of the Altroz, called the Altroz iTurbo. However, the launch has been slated for the 22nd of January, while bookings for the car are set to begin on the 14th of January. The pre-booking amount for the car is ₹11,000.
Beneath the bonnet of the Altroz i-Turbo lies an all-new 1.2-litre, three-cylinder i-Turbo petrol engine. The motor has been de-tuned and is basically the same unit that works in the Tata Cars in India. The engine produces 108bhp and 140Nm of torque, while the Altroz i-Turbo can sprint from 0-100kph in under 12 seconds. The turbo-petrol version of the Altroz is said to deliver a claimed fuel economy figure of 18.13kpl. For drivers who’d like to push this car to its limit, it gets a new ‘Turbo’ drive mode, and then of course, you have the ‘City’ mode.
There’s also a new DCT automatic variant on the cards for the Altroz i-Turbo, but that’s coming at a later stage – perhaps during the latter half of this year. Now with the new i-Turbo engine, the Altroz has three engine options to choose from: a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine, the new 1.2-litre i-Turbo petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo Revotorq diesel engine, all paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. This new i-Turbo version will be offered in three variants: XT, XZ and XZ+.
The car also gets a couple of updates, that include a new exterior colour, called Harbour Blue and will be offered, starting from the XM+ variant, going all the way to the new, top-of-the-line XZ+ that will be available with all engine options. Inside the cabin, a new black-and-light-grey colour theme gives it some fresh appeal. The XZ+ variant comes with lots of features, like a new ‘Xpress Cool’ AC function, Tata’s Intelligent Real-time Assistant, an eight-speaker Harman sound system, one-touch-up power windows and leatherette seats.
