Tata Altroz Turbo Variants Revealed Ahead Of Possible Diwali Launch

As expected, the turbocharged petrol engine will only be offered in the higher variants

  • Tata Altroz Turbo to be offered in four variants including new XT (O) trim
  • The Altroz’ 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine develops 110PS of power.
  • Could be offered with a dual-clutch automatic transmission alongside a manual gearbox.
  • India launch likely around Diwali 2020.

We all know that Tata Motors is cooking up a spicier version of the Altroz powered by a turbo-petrol engine. We had also reported about its engine specifications ahead of its possible launch around Diwali 2020. Now, we have managed to get our hands on Tata Altroz Turbo’s variant list.

As speculated, Tata will offer the Altroz Turbo in the higher-spec variants only. There will be four variants on offer: XT, XT (O), XZ and XZ (O). Interestingly, Tata doesn’t offer the XT (O) in the standard petrol and diesel Altroz. It’s likely to make its debut in the sportier Altroz Turbo. It won’t be offered in the lower-spec XE and XM variants. Here’s our take on the Altroz Turbo’s expected pricing:


Altroz NA Petrol

Altroz Turbo Petrol (Expected)

Altroz Diesel


Rs 6.99 lakh

Rs 7.99 lakh

Rs 8.19 lakh

XT (O)


Rs 8.19 lakh



Rs 7.59 lakh

Rs 8.59 lakh

Rs 8.79 lakh

XZ (O)

Rs 7.75 lakh

Rs 8.75 lakh

The Tata Altroz Turbo will be powered by a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine that develops 110PS of power. It’s the same engine found in the Nexon, but develops 10PS less when compared to sub-4 metre SUV. Interestingly though, the production-spec Altroz Turbo develops 8PS more than the Geneva Edition model that put out 102PS. The production-spec Altroz Turbo is expected to generate more torque than the Geneva Edition’s 140Nm output as well. 

What’s also interesting is that the Altroz Turbo could come with a more sophisticated dual-clutch automatic transmission that could be sold alongside the manual gearbox in the near future if not at launch. The specifications of the dual-clutch automatic transmission are currently under wraps. 

The Tata Altroz Turbo’s styling is similar to the standard variant. The Turbo badge and the blue colour that looks similar to the Nexon’s Tectonic Blue paint option are the only giveaways that you’re trailing the sportier Altroz. As enthusiasts, we’d also welcome upgrades beneath the skin like a stiffer suspension setup.

The Altroz Turbo is likely to go on sale around Diwali. It will lock horns with the Volkswagen Polo TSI and the upcoming Hyundai i20 Turbo.
