The Tata Altroz was on display and it was also the official lead car for the annual Tata Steel Kolkata 25K marathon held in Kolkata on December 15, 2019. The event comprised a host of long-distance races, ranging from a distance of about 2.3km to the main 25km marathon, including one for senior citizens and one for people with disabilities.
The Altroz that was the official lead car for the marathon was equipped with a roof-mounted digital stopwatch along with unique liverly. The Altroz' rear section was finished in black and featured the landmarks of the city and the regular branding for the TSK 25K event.
