2021 Tata Altroz iTurbo review, road test

Shared with the Tata Nexon, the Altroz iTurbo is powered by a a few-cylinder, one,199cc turbocharged petrol engine (codename: one.2 NGTC) that employs indirect or port injection. In this hatchback, the engine creates 110hp and 140Nm of torque, and arrives mated to a 5-speed guide transmission. So why did Tata merely not opt for the Nexon’s 120hp, 170Nm tune and pair it with the six-speed guide alternatively? Sources from the progress crew cite packaging problems which led to this move. It was identified that in the Altroz, the six-speed guide gearbox’s casing fouled with the air cleaner ducting, and addressing this challenge warranted a major re-engineering exercising. As a final result, the progress crew opted for a far more practical remedy – pairing the iTurbo with the TA65 5-speed guide alternatively, and mainly because this device has a low torque ranking, detuning the engine turned essential.
