Tata is offering the Altroz Racer in R1, R2, and R3 variants. The R1 variant gets 16-inch alloy wheels, 6 airbags, leatherette seats, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and many more features.

The R1 variant is priced at Rs 9.49 lakh, ex-showroom. The R2 variant is priced at Rs 10.49 lakh, ex-showroom, and the top-end R3 is priced at Rs 10.99 lakh, ex-showroom. Coming to the engine, the Tata Altroz Racer uses the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbocharged engine that is offered with the iTurbo. However, for the Racer version, it is tuned differently.

When compared to the Hyundai i20 N Line, Altroz Racer is much more affordable. Price for i20 N Line starts at Rs 10 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 12.52 lakh. Hyundai however does offer automatic transmission with the N Line which is missing in the Altroz Racer. Tata Altroz has also proved itself when it comes to build quality as it is the only premium hatchback in the segment to score 5 star rating at Global NCAP crash test.

This engine now generates 120 PS and 170 Nm of peak torque. It is the same tune as seen in the Nexon petrol. This engine is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox only with the Altroz Racer.
