Tata Motors Unveils Details About the Upcoming Tata Altroz Racer

Tata Altroz Racer

In an exciting pre-launch teaser, Tata Motors has revealed new details about the upcoming Tata Altroz Racer. Scheduled for a June 2024 launch, the Altroz Racer will be the first of three new cars Tata Motors plans to introduce before the festive season, alongside the Curvv coupe SUV and the Nexon CNG.

A Sportier Take on the Altroz

The teaser video offers a glimpse of what to expect from this sportier version of the Altroz. With a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 120 PS and 170 Nm of torque (an increase of 10 HP and 30 Nm compared to the iTurbo variant), the Altroz Racer is poised to compete with the Hyundai i20 N Line in the Indian market. The teaser also highlights the car’s distinctive racing stripes, sunroof, and a sportier exhaust note.

Racing-Inspired Design

The Altroz Racer stands out with its racing-inspired exterior. It features a two-tone orange and black paint job with a contrasting black roof, complemented by dual white racing stripes running from the hood to the rear. Other sporty touches include an elongated rear spoiler, 16-inch black alloy wheels, and a “Racer” emblem on the front fender. A revised grille and a prominent “iTurbo+” badge on the trunk lid complete the look.

Feature-Rich Interior

The Altroz Racer’s interior is expected to offer more features than the standard Altroz. The cabin boasts contrasting orange and white accents, racing stripes on the seats and steering wheel, and ventilated synthetic leather front seats – a first in this segment. Passengers will also enjoy a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 7-inch fully digital driver display, a 360-degree surround-view camera, a head-up display, voice-activated sunroof, and ambient lighting. Safety features include six airbags, electronic stability control, ISOFIX child seat mounts, anti-lock brakes, and electronic brake-force distribution.

Performance and Pricing

The Altroz Racer gets its power from a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission could also be offered. While official pricing remains under wraps, the Altroz Racer is expected to be priced higher than the current iTurbo (Rs 9.20 – Rs 10.10 lakh, ex-showroom) and will directly compete with the Hyundai i20 N Line (Rs 9.99 – Rs 12.52 lakh). It will also serve as a sportier alternative to the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Toyota Glanza.
