Tata Altroz Racer: Exterior Styling

Ahead of its launch today, Tata Motors had already revealed a few pictures and video teasers of the model's design. The Altroz Racer receives significant stylistic enhancements for a sportier look and appeal. The car is identical to its concept version, featuring a blacked-out bonnet and roof with a dual-tone paint scheme. The roof, boot, and bonnet of the hatchback sport twin white stripes. The updated model also has new sleek diamond-cut alloy wheels for a more aggressive appearance and a "Racer" badge on the fender.

On the feature front, the Racer iteration of the Altroz comes equipped with amenities like a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, an air purifier, heated front seats, wireless charging, and an electric sunroof. Orange highlights and ambient lighting further accentuate the ambience, and the car's sporty spirit is emphasised by the all-black upholstery with orange and white stripes and "Racer" lettering on the headrests. Moreover, the hatchback boasts a comprehensive safety kit that includes six airbags, a blind spot monitor, and a 360-degree camera. 

Tata Altroz Racer: Powertrain Options

To set the Altroz Racer apart from the standard model, it has several performance improvements as well. The Racer version is propelled by a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 170Nm of peak torque and 118bhp of maximum power, just like the Nexon SUV.

Tata Altroz Racer: Rivals

The Hyundai i20 N Line, which is positioned as a more performance-oriented hatchback in the class, will be the Tata Altroz Racer's main rival. The Tata offering's competitors are few, as models like the Volkswagen Polo and Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS are not yet available in India. However, the Altroz Racer would face stiff competition from the Maruti Suzuki Fronx and the new Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor, both of which use 1.0-litre turbo petrol engines.
