We’re just a few weeks from the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and Tata Motors is all set to debut its production version of the 45X concept hatchback in front of the world. This is Tata’s latest product, designed with a futuristic look and it will be called the Altroz, which the company says, has been inspired from the bird Albatross.

After launching the Tiago, Tigor, Nexon, Hexa and Harrier, Tata will add the Altroz to its line up which will compete in the hatchback market against giants like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Hyundai’s i20 among others.

Tata has claimed that the Altroz will offer best-in-class performance and in-cabin space, which clearly suggests that the 45X concept is ready to compete with an aggressive price tag in tow.


We got a glimpse of the 45X at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi and what it intends to offer, without getting a hold of engine specs and other features.

But Tata has now officially confirmed that the Altroz will be its first product to be engineered on the new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) Architecture, which will offer lightweight vehicles with a quick development cycle.

It will be interesting to hear about the Altroz, (although it may take a while to get used to the name) from the Geneva Motor Show 2019. Tata Motors plans to launch it in the Indian market in late 2019. The car has been spotted testing with heavy camouflage in various parts of India.
