Altroz, a premium hatchback from Tata motors has been revealed in its production ready form. The launch of this hatch is set to take place in the Auto-Expo 2020 but today, we’re going to talk about a little bit more about the production ready specs of this car. Based on the all new ALFA (Agile, Light, Flexible and Advanced) platform, the Altroz will aim to compete with Maruti Suzuki’s Baleno, Honda Jazz and Hyundai i20 in Indian market.
In terms of design the Altroz carries the family DNA with Tata’s new Impact 2.0 design language. It features sleek headlamps merging nicely with the front grille and a rising window line giving it an overall sporty look.
At the rear, the car gets interesting bits with black out glossy element on the tailgate, housing the tail-lamps. The car measures 3990 mm in length, has 1755mm of width and is 1523 mm tall.

In terms of mechanics, the Tata Altroz will come equipped with at least two BS6-compliant engine options – a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. All engines will come with 5 speed manual transmission, but there are rumors about an automatic gearbox as well. Some are also expecting a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder turbo petrol engine. The tables below have the engine specifications for two of the engines:

In terms of safety, the car is at par with others in its segment accompanying 2 Air Bags (standard), ABS with EBD.
