Tata Altroz diesel engine to offer 93PS of power and 210Nm of torque.
Tata Motors will launch the much-anticipated Altroz premium hatchback in the second half of 2019, most probably around August-September. A new Team-BHP report claims that the Altroz hatchback will be offered with diesel engine only. Though, the petrol version will be launched on a later stage. This development comes in the middle of talks of the upcoming BSVI emission norms and rising demand for petrol cars in India.
The Tata Altroz hatchback will be powered by a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder Revotorq diesel engine that powers the Nexon. The report claims that the detuned version of this engine will power the Altroz. While powering the Nexon, this engine produces 110PS and 260Nm. However, the engine in the Altroz will offer 93PS of power and 210Nm of torque. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox. Read – Tata Altroz – 8 interesting facts
