2021 Tata Altroz iTurbo vs rivals: Price comparison
Tata Motors introduced the new Altroz iTurbo premium hatchback in the market on Saturday. Tata Motors set a rather competitive price tag for its new car which starts at ₹7.73 lakh and extends up to ₹8.85 lakh, (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). The company also mentioned that these are introductory prices that may be hiked in the future.
The Altroz was initially introduced in India exactly a year back with two engine options - 1.2 Revotron and 1.5 Revotorq, now the homegrown automaker has added a turbo-ed version of the 1.2-litre petrol inside the Altroz. So basically it's the same engine, albeit with a turbo. Thanks to the new mechanical update, the engine now delivers slightly higher 110 PS and 140 Nm. The company has carried over the older 5-speed manual transmission, while the DCT is nowhere to be found. In a single engine-transmission combination, the car has been made available in three packs - XT iTurbo, XZ iTurbo and XZ+ iTurbo.
