Tata Motors has a slew of new products up its sleeve this calendar year as the turbocharged version of the Altroz petrol, new Safari and the HBX concept based micro SUV are in the pipeline. The homegrown manufacturer sells the Altroz in the price range between Rs. 5.44 lakh and Rs. 9.09 lakh (ex-showroom) in XE, XM, XT and XZ variants across two powertrain options.

The 1.2-litre three-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine produces 85 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm of peak torque delivered at 5,500 rpm. The 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel kicks out 89 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm at 1,250 rpm.
