Tata Motors has added a turbo version of the existing 1.2 Revotron engine on the Altroz iTurbo. Thanks to the updated engine, the power and torque figures have seen a boost at 110 PS and 140 Nm, respectively. Though sadly, the hatchback still misses out on a DCT option, while the previous 5-speed manual transmission has been carried over. It has also gained a new dedicated 'Sport' mode for a thrilling drive.
In terms of exteriors, the car comes with a new 'Harbour Blue' paint scheme, along with an 'iTurbo' badging which is placed on its tailgate. Rest, all the design and styling details remain unchanged.
Feature and technology updates on the car are significant. It comes with iRA connected car technology which was previously only found on the Tata Nexon SUV. As per the company, this application enables 27 connected car features on the Altroz including remote car immobilization, door lock/unlock, headlamp on/off, trip history, SOS emergency help and more. It has also gained a new express cool feature, along with one shot up windows, and a new black and grey colour scheme for the interiors.
