Just a few days after unveiling the Altroz iTurbo, Tata Motors has launched the turbo-petrol version of their premium hatchback. Prices for the Altroz iTurbo start at Rs 7.74 lakh and go up to Rs 8.86 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Do note that these are introductory prices, and there could be a hike at some point in the future. Tata is offering the Altroz iTurbo is available in XT, XZ and XZ+ variants, and has taken the opportunity to expand the overall Altroz line-up in India.

This also includes a price hike on almost all of the variants on offer. For example, the starting price of the Altroz has increased by Rs 25,000, while the cost difference between subsequent turbo-petrol and NA petrol variants is Rs 60,000 (XT). Apart from that, the Altroz iTurbo comes with a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol motor under the hood which produces 109-bhp and 14.27-kgm of torque. This engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

Moreover, the Altroz iTurbo comes with ‘Sports’ mode which provides some extra kick, along with slight tuning to suspension and steering feel. Apart from that, the iTurbo variant pretty much the same as the standard Altroz. There’s also a new black and white interior theme, smart wearable key, black contrast roof and a smart assistant called ‘IRA’. Through the latter, one can remotely operate the car from their smartphone, and even provide Hinglish commands within the car to operate certain features.
