Tata Motors had planned to introduce the Altroz with a BS-IV compliant engine at the time of launch. The engine would have been updated to the new BS-VI norms at a later stage.

Thoughts On The Tata Altroz Launch Delayed

The Tata Altroz will be positioned in the Indian premium hatchback segment, rivaling the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20 and the Toyota Glanza. Once launched, we can expect Tata to undercut the prices of the Elite i20 at Rs 5 - 8 lakh, ex-showroom.
