Most of us are pretty fond of the Tata Altroz, the national carmaker’s premium hatchback runabout that replaced the Bolt in 2019 before being succeeded by the Indica Vista in 2008. This rendered picture shows an imaginary envision of how the station wagon based on the premium hatchback could potentially be looking like.
The digital illustration has been done by Binny Zacharia, who is an digital artist residing in Kayamkulam, Kerala as a homage to the much-loved Tata Altroz has created this vehicle you see before you. One of the major changes seen on the illustration as compared to the Altroz is the wide profile resembling that of an estate or station wagon.
Literally, there is no estate, station wagons on entry-level segment in the Indian car market, however on the premium-segment you can opt 2 models – Volvo V90 Cross Country and Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain. This body-style had failed every time in the home market, primarily because of buyer preferences favouring either sedans or SUVs.
The Altroz was the first car from Tata Motors to be based on the automaker’s ALFA architecture, so there is a possibility of the spawning station wagon on the same platform. Although there is neither confirmation nor plans from Pune-based Tata Motors of introducing the Altroz-based station wagon. Tata Motors is one such brand that is seen operating on a majority of mass market segments.
If launched, the Altroz-based station wagon will be sitting below the Nexon in Tata Motors line-up. Thus, it could be priced less than the compact SUV. The entry-level estate in question could be an ideal product from the automaker to take the fill the gap and if it does make it to production anytime soon.
What do you think of Binny’s Tata Altroz Station Wagon? Is it worthy homage to the Tata Estate or Tata Indigo Marina? What would you change on it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
