The Tata Altroz premium sedan is set to receive a new turbo gasoline option this month, and the company officially unveils the car today. The new model has been dubbed the Tata Altroz iTurbo, and we’ll bring you all the live updates from the event here. Essentially just a new engine option for the car, the new Altroz iTurbo is expected to come in three trims – XT, XZ, and XZ +.

The new Tata Altroz iTurbo will be powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine, sourced from Nexon. However, for the Altroz, Tata has detuned the engine, which will likely deliver 108 hp and 140 Nm of peak torque. The same engine of the Nexon SUV produces 118 hp and 170 Nm of power. The car will be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just 13 seconds. Transmission tasks will only be performed with a 5-speed manual gearbox, but a DCT automatic could be introduced later.
