The long-awaited Tata Altroz iTurbo petrol has been finally revealed in India, and we have been waiting eagerly for it since the launch of Altroz in 2019. Now the new Tata Altroz iTurbo is just a new alternative in a range of models, so nothing has changed except for the new engine under the hood. You get the Nexon Facelift’s three-cylinder, turbocharged 1.2-liter petrol engine in Tata Altroz iTurbo tuned to produce 108 hp and 140 Nm of maximum torque. Just to give you an idea, this powertrain delivers 28% more power and 24% more torque than a normal petrol engine, and it mates to a standard five-speed manual gearbox. For those who are wondering, the “i” in Tata Altroz iTurbo means “smart”. Tata claims the Altroz iTurbo accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 11.9 seconds. Tata claims the iTurbo’s fuel efficiency is 18.13 Kmpl, according to the MIDC cycle.

Tata Altroz iTurbo petrol will be offered in six variants in India: XE, XM, XM +, XT, XZ, and XZ + and will be offered in five body color options: Harbor Blue, High Street Gold, Midtown Grey, Downtown Red, and Street the White.
