    Tata Altroz Turbo: Engine and gearbox details

    The Altroz will get a slightly de-tuned version of the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol that powers the Nexon SUV. This means, it will produces 110hp and 140Nm of torque as opposed to the 120hp and 170Nm of torque in the compact SUV. Tata Motors is expected to offer the Altroz with a five-speed manual gearbox initially, with a DCT automatic gearbox – a first for Tata – to follow a little later.

    Tata Altroz Turbo launch, competition and variant details

    The Altroz Turbo will be aimed squarely at the recently launched 2020 Hyundai i20 that also comes with a 120hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine option. As far as variant details go, like the new i20 Turbo, the Altroz Turbo is expected to be made available in the top two or three variants only. 

    In addition, the Altroz Turbo will see strong competition from the popular Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI that comes with a 110hp turbo-petrol engine mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox.

    Expect Tata Motors to officially announce commencement of bookings and more details on the Altroz Turbo soon.
