Based on previous images, it can be contemplated that the all-around design of the car will significantly remain similar to the regular model with modest updates. When launched, the Altroz iTurbo will play against the Hyundai i20 and the Volkswagen Polo. It is probable to be priced at least 50,000 more than the standard version.
As per the leaked brochure, the Indian carmaker will be augmenting a new XZ+ variant to the Altroz line-up. Apart from this, there will also be a new color on the Altroz iTurbo, called Harbour Blue. The car will be offered five colors – Harbour Blue, High Street Gold, Midtown Grey, Downtown Red, and Avenue White.
On the inside, the cabin will discern some significant updates underlined in light grey interiors with leather seats. The new variant will also get multi-drove modes – City and Sport. Additional adds include a height-adjustable driver seat, a rear-seat armrest, a rear power outlet, two more tweeters, one shot up power windows, Xpress Cool, cruise control, push a start-stop button, and much more. The turbocharged iteration of the Altroz will also come equipped with Tata’s iRA technology, proposing a spectrum of related functions. One can also personalize the home screen of the infotainment system with their liked wallpaper.
Under the hood, there will be a new 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbocharged motor sourced from Nexon. The petrol unit will be tuned to make 108 bhp and 140 Nm of peak torque at 1,500- 5,500 rpm. It will make 28 percent more power and 24 percent more torque than the regular version. The car will be capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 mph in just 13 seconds.
