I guess it will be called so.

Tata please offer "Best in Class Drivetrains" rather than "Best in Class Features" with this one.

Tata Trademarks should be retained in this one.

Tata has large residential apartments named 'Aquila Heights' in Bengaluru The name 'Tata Aquila' reminds people here of those high rise towers. When I first read the name, I was like - that sounds oddly familiar for a car that is not even unveiled. So, not sure if they'd use the same. However, can't rule out anything these days when it comes to car names as they went ahead with Harrier when Toyota had already used that name.

Looks like it will be the Tata Altroz

And what does Altroz mean?

Quote:
A person who has the potential to attain spiritual enlightenment! Your main strengths are related to introspection and intuition. Essentially you are able to unite the feminine and masculine. Finding balance within two opposing forces which stop confronting and start complementing each other, is an ability few possess.

Should have named it 'Tequila'! With the direction Tata design is headed it must be a show stopper, can't wait. Hope they get their engines, transmissions right at launch and don't hold back like in the case of the Harrier.

Latest bits on the X451:

- The petrol and diesel versions will both come with engines mated to 5-speed gearboxes.

- The X451 will also be equipped with mood lighting.


Thanks to a birdie.

What about automatic transmission I just hope it is not a amt.Would be amazing if it has cvt as that would be good for the city and fuel economy also.

So, does it mean that the Engine is different from the one in Nexon? or is it because the Engine has been detuned to deliver lower power as mentioned by you earlier? ⬇️

First the detuned engine and now the 5 speed gearbox - guess the market positioning is very clear against Nexon, which gets superior mechanicals.

Only name Altroz reminds me of is - Alturas. But anyways - the Mahindra is unlikely to become a household name due to the iron grip from Fortuner in that segment.

Looking at the segment standards, a detuned engine should not be a major concern, unless the weight difference is over 50-60 kgs. A six speed box would have been better since the i20 diesel also gets one. The 6th gear really helps during highway runs.

Detuned engine and a 5-speed box also hint at an aggressive pricing strategy.

The Zest comes with a 90 Ps Petrol engine and 5 Speed Gearbox.

AFAIK, TATA usually limits the torque on their 5-Speed Gearbox to 140Nm.

What are the chances that they are doing a direct heart transplant from Zest to Altroz?
