Tata Motors has unveiled the Altroz at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. It's the first premium hatchback from the carmaker to be based on their latest 'Impact 2.0' design language. And, the Altroz name comes from the Albatross, which is a bird known to soar over the seas with minimal effort. Here are official images of Tata’s competitor to the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the Hyundai i20.
This all-new Altroz premium hatchback is being showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in a golden colour shade. It's also the first product to be based on the brand's new 'ALFA' platform.
Up front, an aggressive and sleeker version of Tata's Humanity line grille has now taken shape. This comes with a split lighting set-up similar to the one seen on the Harrier SUV.
But unlike the Harrier's bumper, the Altroz's headlights are located in the upper pods. It's the fog lamps and LED DRLs that are situated in the lower pods.
Nicely flared wheel arches house 21-inch five-spoke alloys, which are like the Nexon in silver and black contrast. They nicely fill the huge wheel well and look perfectly proportioned to the car’s size.
Black accents on the steeply raked rear window perfectly complement the spoiler. But it’s the smoked tail lamps that add to the appeal at the back. These are like the units on the Harrier again.
The interior is quite similar to the Nexon in terms of layout and a floating touch screen unit. This cabin, however, follows an all-black theme with upholstery in black and dark grey combination.
A closer look hints at a digital panel for the Altroz’s instrument cluster. Then, the hatchback will feature cruise control, speed limiter, engine start-stop button etc. amongst other features.
There’s no word on the powertrain bits. However, for now, these initial images have managed to give us a good preview of the Altroz, which has a rather distinct appearance from outside and inside.
