The Tata Altroz turbo-petrol variant is among the most-anticipated launches in India starting next year. The upcoming performance premium hatchback variant will sport a new colour called the Marina Blue. It will be an exclusive paint scheme for the Altroz turbo-petrol variant.
This particular paint scheme was spotted several times via spy images during the testing of the hatchback. From the image, there are no other changes made to the exterior of the hatchback except the new paint scheme.
However, at the time of launch, the company could reveal some more exterior changes made to the Altroz turbo. This includes a couple of blacked-out trims including the alloy-wheels, smoked headlamps and more.
On the inside, it is expected to carry the same layout and equipment from the standard model. However, seats and the dashboard could get a new blacked-out finish with contrasting stitching giving it a sporty feel.
The standard hatchback model features LED DRLs, LED taillights, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also features a flat-bottom steering wheel with mounted controls.
The Altroz turbo will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol three-cylinder unit that is turbocharged. It is expected to produce a maximum of 108bhp and a peak torque of 140Nm. The turbo variant will be offered with a (DCT) Dual-Clutch Transmission. However, it could also be offered with a manual gearbox as well.
The DCT will most likely be sourced from Punch powertrains, which will be a dry-clutch system. While the manual gearbox is expected to be the same five-speed unit from the standard variant. It would be great if Tata can squeeze in a six-speed manual on the turbo-petrol unit instead of a five-speed unit.
Apart from the upcoming turbo-petrol engine, the Tata Altroz is offered in two more engine options: the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel. The naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 85bhp and 113Nm of torque. While the 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit puts out 89bhp and 200Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission as standard. There is no automatic transmission on offer.
Thoughts About The Tata Altroz Tubro-Petrol Variant In New Marina Blue Colour
The Tata Altroz turbo will have an exclusive paint scheme to tell it apart from the standard variant of the hatchback. The company could reveal some more exterior changes at the time of its launch next month. The Tata Altroz turbo will rival the Hyundai i20 turbo and the Polo GT TSI in the Indian market.
