Tata Altroz iTurbo Launched, Priced At Rs 7.74 Lakhs
The Tata Altroz iTurbo has been introduced in India at an introductory price of Rs 7.74 lakh(ex-showroom, Delhi). The Tata Altroz iTurbo is offered in three Variants-XT, XZ, and the new top-spec XZ+. With an XZ+ trim level, which is Rs 40,000-45,000 more costly than the previous XZ(O) topped range, the automaker has also extended the natural-aspired petrol and turbo Diesel lineups of the Altroz. Tata has announced that the price of all the variants is introductory.
Tata has also increased prices of Altroz petrol and diesel by Rs 5,000-25,000 depending on the variation, according to the latest declaration of a price hike over their whole portfolio from 22 January 2021.
While the regular Altroz petrol and diesel are available in seven and six versions –not including extra packages such as Rhythm, Style, Luxe, and Urban –the turbocharged petrol version is only available in the three higher trims.
The Altroz iTurbo begins at Rs 2.04 lakh higher than the petrol variant and finishes at Rs 60,000. Altoz iTurbo models also feature slightly different equipment, along with the extra 24hp and 27Nm torque, and a new Sport drive mode for the engine.
The Altroz iTurbo XT lacks the bigger16″ steel wheel available in the regular XT variant and is fitted with 14-inch units. The iTurbo XZ is fitted with an eight-speaker Harman audio system. Tata added the latest range-top version XZ+ to the luxury hatchback series, as we reported at the unveiling of the iTurbo, with its IRA-connected car software, leather seat cover, fog backlights, and a cool express air conditioning system feature on the lengthy list of equipment from Altroz.
Considering the cost of Altroz iTurbo between Rs 7.74-8.86 lakh, Tata Turbo luxury hatchback starts prices undercut its direct competitors.
The Volkswagen Polo has manually priced at Rs 8.34 lakh and comes with a VW award-winning 110hp 1.0 liter TSI. In the meantime, Rs 8,80-10,05 lakh* currently priced on the 120hp i20 turbo available with 6-speed iMT (Hyundai’s ‘clutchless).
However, both the Polo and i20 are in advance over the Altroz, as both come with a 6-speed VW torque converter and a Hyundai dual-speed 7-speed convertor. In the coming months, Tata is working to introduce an Altroz auto-equipped dual-clutch, but an exact time-line remains to be verified.
