Tata Altroz Racer Set to Blaze Trails in the Coming Weeks

Tata Motors unveiled the Altroz Racer as an embodiment of sportiness within the Altroz hatchback lineup during last year’s Auto Expo. Following its appearance at this year’s Bharat Mobility Show with subtle design tweaks, Tata Motors had been tight-lipped about its launch plans. However, recent updates confirm that the much-anticipated sportier variant, the Altroz Racer, will hit the markets in the imminent weeks.

Enhanced Performance with 120hp Turbo-Petrol Engine

The hallmark of the Altroz Racer lies in its robust powertrain—a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine, akin to the one featured in the Altroz iTurbo. However, this variant churns out an impressive 120hp and 170Nm of torque, a notable increment of 10hp and 30Nm respectively over the iTurbo. Remarkably, it shares the same power output as the Nexon SUV. Enthusiasts can expect the Altroz Racer to be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, distinguishing it from the 5-speed manual transmission found in the iTurbo. This power package squarely positions it as a competitor against the i20 N Line, although an automatic gearbox isn’t anticipated for the Altroz Racer.

Exterior and Interior Upgrades

The Altroz Racer promises a slew of exterior enhancements to accentuate its sporty demeanor. Showcased with a striking dual-tone paint scheme complemented by twin racing stripes adorning the bonnet and roof, the Racer exudes athleticism. Noteworthy additions include ‘Racer’ badging on the front fenders, a subtly revised grille, and a fresh design for its 16-inch alloy wheels.

Feature-rich Interior

Inside, expect a plethora of upgrades. The Altroz Racer will feature the larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system reminiscent of newer Tata SUVs. Furthermore, it’s anticipated to boast segment-first ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera, a heads-up display, and a voice-assisted sunroof. Some of these enhancements might trickle down to the standard Altroz variants in subsequent releases. Visually, anticipate revamped leatherette upholstery with contrast stitching and vibrant accents on the dashboard. In terms of safety, the Racer lineup will offer six airbags and ESC as standard.

Anticipated Competition and Pricing

While these enhancements promise an exhilarating driving experience, they come at a price. Expect a notable increase in prices for the Altroz Racer. Positioned alongside the i20 N Line, it might also face competition from the turbo-petrol variants of the Maruti Fronx, depending on pricing strategies.

In conclusion, the Tata Altroz Racer emerges as a compelling option for enthusiasts seeking a blend of performance, style, and advanced features in the hatchback segment. Its imminent launch is bound to stir excitement among automotive aficionados.
