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.

On the inside things get more interesting. The premium hatch sports a 7.0-inch floating infotainment screen (first-in-segment) with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Altroz will also come with a completely new steering wheel.

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

Tata will begin bookings for the Altroz on December 4, 2019, at an amount of Rs 21,000. Prices will officially be announced in January 2020, and we expect it to be priced in the range of Rs 5-8 lakh (ex-showroom).
