Tata Altroz unveiled: Review, Price, bookings, features, variants, specifications, other details you should know
Earlier this month, Tata finally revealed the production-spec Altroz hatchback. The model, which is due to launch in January 2020, enters the premium hatchback segment with two engine options and four variants to choose from. Tata is calling it the gold standard, and so today I intend to test that claim. And oh yeah – it’s named after an albatross. In case you’d missed that earlier.
