Tata Motors have launched a new variant for their premium hatchback Altroz.

It is called as the ‘i-Turbo’ and it comes with a new and more powerful turbocharged petrol engine.

In addition to the introduction of this variant, the Altroz now also gets a new range-topping trim i.e. the ‘XZ+’.

In this article, we discuss all the new features which have been added to this hatchback with this update.

A new turbocharged petrol engine

Altroz’s i-Turbo variants come with a new 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine.

This unit is based on the same 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine which is available on the existing line-up of this hatchback.

The turbo-petrol engine produces 100 hp along with 140 Nm of peak torque.

It is available with a 5-speed manual gearbox. At this time, there is no automatic transmission option on offer with the Altroz i-Turbo.

Tata have introduced a new ‘Sport’ driving mode on the i-Turbo variants. This replaces the ‘Eco’ driving mode, which is available on the Altroz’s standard variants.

Connected car technology

The Altroz now also gets Tata’s iRA connected car technology.

It will be available exclusively on the newly introduced range-topping trim XZ+.

iRA offers 27 connected car features. These include various services such as vehicle security, remote commands, locations-based services, live vehicle diagnosis among others.

Customers will be able to access all the features of the iRA connected car system with the help of a phone-based app.
Feature list increased

Several new features have also been added to the Tata Altroz’s line-up with the introduction of a new top-spec XZ+ trim.
The list includes
• Xpress cool
• A wearable key
• Leatherette seats
• Personalised wallpaper for the infotainment system
• Driver side window one-touch up/down function

Additional safety features

The Tata Altroz already ranks quite high among its competitors, when it comes to vehicle safety.

It is one of the few made-in-India cars which have scored a five-star safety rating in the Global NCAP crash tests.

Adding to this, the new XZ+ trim will now also offer rear fog lamps along with flat-type wiper blades.

No cosmetic updates

No cosmetic updates have been introduced on the Altroz with this minor update.

However, the XZ+ trim gets the contrasting black roof as standard. Earlier, this was available only as an optional extra.

In addition to this, Tata Motors have now also introduced a new ‘Harbour Blue’ colour scheme for this premium hatchback.

Prices of the new i-Turbo variants exceeds that of the Altroz’s standard variants by Rs 60,000.

It will be available with three trim levels, namely XT, XZ and XZ+.
