- Was spotted in Minsk, Belarus during its TVC shoot
- Will be launched in early 2020
- Based on the modular ALFA platform
Last month, we reported that the India launch of the Tata Altroz has been postponed to early 2020. Now, the car has been spotted sans camouflage in Minsk, Belarus, purportedly during its TVC shoot.
The Tata Altroz was seen in the gold paint scheme with dual-tone machined alloys. It also gets a blacked-out roof and outside rear-view mirrors. It features the IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy, under which, it gets a radical styling with various cuts and creases. On the insides as well, it receives fresh interior design with an all-black cabin.
Tata Motors is reportedly working on developing BS-IV compliant engines for the Altroz, and hence, the delay in its launch. The company was initially set to introduce the Altroz with BS-IV engines and later update them to BS-VI compliance. However, they decided otherwise. Under the hood, the Altroz is expected to get a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol motor from the Nexon, which is likely to produce 100bhp and 140Nm. It will get a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel from the Nexon as well. However, it will be tuned to produce 90bhp. A six-speed manual gearbox is expected to be offered with both the engines.
The Tata Altroz will come loaded with features like a floating touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry, engine start-stop button, cruise control and much more. It will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Volkswagen Polo, Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz and the Hyundai Elite i20.
