The Tata Altroz Racer, which will likely go on sale next month, has been teased for the first time. The hatchback debuted at the 2023 Auto Expo and then made its appearance at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo earlier this year. The teaser shows only a partial view of the car, highlighted by its new orange-black paint and an extended rear spoiler, which gives it a sportier appearance. The alloy wheels are now finished in black, although they still have the same design. The latest spy shots show dual white stripes extending from the hood to the roof's end. Furthermore, the Altroz Racer will have improved stylistic features, such as a redesigned grille and dual-tip exhaust, to distinguish it from the standard Altroz.

The Altroz Racer's launch is likely to happen soon, considering the first teaser has already been released. It will be more expensive than the current Altroz top-of-the-line model, which is priced at Rs 10.79 lakh (ex-showroom). As a sportier option than the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Toyota Glanza, it will directly compete with the Hyundai i20 N range.
