    Tata Altroz Racer R2 Review

    The Tata Altroz Racer, as the name suggests, is a racier version of the standard hatchback with a more powerful engine, cosmetic changes, and additional features. Here is our first drive review of it.

    What is it?

    Left Front Three Quarter

    The Tata Altroz Racer, as the name suggests, is a racier version of the standard hatchback with a more powerful engine, cosmetic changes, and additional features. This signature orange with black accents is a good-looking colour combo, but the white-black and grey-black combinations look better. I don't have qualms in mentioning that differently styled alloys would have been a refreshing update instead of the darker shade. Also, the racing lines livery could have been optional. 

    Closed Hood/Bonnet

    The 'Racer' doesn't have drool-worthy styling, although the updates have been tastefully done. It gets new side skirts and an extended spoiler on the roof to add to that 'racy' appeal. Then, a 'Racer' badge has been provided on the front fenders to differentiate it from the regular Altroz. There are blacked-out badges and an 'i-Turbo+' badge on the tailgate to denote a more powerful engine under the hood.

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    Is the cabin of the Altroz Racer any good?

    Dashboard

    The Racer is based on the standard Altroz but with improvements in terms of features. So, getting in and out is still a breeze thanks to the wide-opening doors and high roof clearance. You'll be greeted by a roomy cabin with good-quality materials inside. There is good all-around visibility and a nice sense of spaciousness, and the driving position is comfortable too. All controls are within easy reach and there's ample storage space throughout. 

    Rear Seats

    The second row offers comfortable seating for two adults with enough space to squeeze in a third person if needed. Even for someone of my height (5'8”), there's sufficient knee room, shoulder room, headroom, and a nicely reclined backrest for a relaxed ride. The leatherette seats up the premium feel inside the all-black cabin and the ambience has changed thanks to orange dashboard highlights, including the accents and orange lighting.

    Infotainment System

    The new features on board the Altroz Racer include a nice high-resolution 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment, which supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Then, there's a fully digital instrument cluster, which is very exhaustive in terms of information and yet clear to read. The car also comes equipped with amenities such as automatic AC with rear vents, cruise control, and an eight-speaker sound system. Its safety kit includes six airbags, electronic stability control, ABS with EBD, and a five-star GNCAP rating. However, the entry-level R1 variant misses out on the front grille-mounted camera for the 360-degree camera with blind view monitor, seven-inch fully digital driver’s display, wireless phone charging, air purifier, and a voice-activated sunroof that the top-spec R3 Racer variant gets. 

    Sunroof/Moonroof

    Nevertheless, automatic climate control, rear vents, rear defogger, and a rear wiper with a washer are standard features. Right from the entry-level R1, the Racer boasts leatherette seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a front sliding armrest. The R3, in addition, gets first-in-the-segment ventilated front seats, which customers looking for a premium hatchback will appreciate.

    Is the Altroz Racer good to drive?

    Engine Shot

    The Tata Altroz Racer uses a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine that we've seen on the TataNexon. It makes 118bhp and 170Nm of torque and only comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Tata's product development team mentioned that the air intakes are from the standard Altroz, but otherwise, the powertrain is from the new Nexon and helps up the game in terms of performance. The dual-tip exhaust, which you see in the pictures, provides a sportier note compared to the regular version of the hatchback. It's not loud but puts a mild smile on your face every time you rev it.

    Front View

    The thing that I was concerned about was the engine performance but I’m glad Tata Motors has worked on it in comparison to the i-turbo. And when I say that, I don't just mean the power output, pops and bags, or even the 0-100kmph sprint times. It's the driving feel from a properly tuned engine with good power delivery and impressive throttle response. The older Altroz i-turbo didn't manage this well but the carmaker has now made amends with the Altroz Racer. The power delivery in this i-turbo+ feels linear, lacks flat spots, and doesn't feel jerky. 

    Gear Shifter/Gear Shifter Stalk

    With the new hydraulic clutch, the action at the pedal is quick but the gear shifts still feel notchy. The automatic could have eliminated this and we hope the carmaker will introduce a DCA with this soon. Nevertheless, thanks to the readily available torque from lower rpm, the car gets going without having to make frequent gearshifts. It allows you to rev till around 5,500rpm where it gets noisy and feels unrefined. However, you'd mostly be at low rpms as the turbo lag isn't prominent. It easily does 80kmph in fifth gear at around 2,000rpm and 100kmph in the same gear at 2,500rpm with high-speed cruising easily doable. The claimed 0-100kmph sprint is 11.3 seconds, but Narain (who co-developed the car) managed to do it within 10.15 seconds.The product team mentioned there is no major change to the suspension and handling of the Racer as compared to the Altroz. 

    Right Side View

    There remains a slight firmness at low speeds but still deals with our uneven road conditions without a fuss. The ground clearance with the side skirts continues as is at 165mm, again, not scraping anywhere we went. On the race track, Narain gave it the stick, yet the body roll remained well within limits, and the Racer remained planted even at triple-digit speeds. The responsive steering has been calibrated for a connected feel, is light, and weighs up nicely at high speeds. Though more than three lock-to-lock turns continue, it is quick to respond and doesn't add to the effort while parking the car. Furthermore, the carmaker hasn't equipped the Racer with rear discs and despite that the existing set-up manages confidence-inspiring braking.

    Left Front Three Quarter

    Should you buy the Altroz Racer?

    Right Front Three Quarter

    The Racer is a go-faster version of the Altroz and provides buyers with more than outright performance, drivability, and on-road stability. The positives of the Altroz, such as the spacious cabin, compact footprint, safety, and more, continue with more delightful features. The entry-level R1 variant of the Altroz Racer is priced at Rs. 9.49 lakh (introductory ex-showroom, pan India), the R2 costs Rs. 10.49 lakh, and the top-spec R3, Rs. 10.99 lakh. So, it's not very expensive, and in fact, undercuts its direct rival the Hyundai i20 N Line by a margin. It is a good hot hatch proposition for enthusiasts and premium car buyers alike.

            The official title given by the manufacturer in terms of the name of the engine, the displacement and the number of cylinders.

            A bigger displacement and more than four-cylinders generally indicate a performance-oriented engine.

          • Fuel Type
            Petrol

            All cars in India either run on petrol, diesel, CNG, LPG or electric power.

          • Max Power (bhp@rpm)
            118 bhp @ 5500 rpm

            Gives a good idea of the performance of the vehicle under full thrust. A higher figure here usually means a higher top speed as well.

            Higher the power, the peppier the engine but it can also affect fuel economy.

          • Max Torque (Nm@rpm)
            170 Nm @ 1750 rpm

            Relates to in-gear acceleration. A higher figure here means better roll-on acceleration, fewer gear shifts, and possibly better fuel efficiency.

            The more torque at low RPM range makes the engine feel more responsive. It also allows the engine to run smoothly without too many gear changes.

          • Drivetrain
            FWD

            Cars come with different drivetrain configurations depending on the segment.

            Front-wheel drive (FWD) is most common in mainstream cars while expensive cars or SUVs come with rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

          • Transmission
            Manual - 6 Gears

            Type of transmission used to transfer power from the engine to the wheels

            A manually operated transmission is the most popular type, thanks to its simplicity and low cost. Varied types of automatic transmissions are also available.

          • Emission Standard
            BS6 Phase 2

            Set by the Indian Government, this governs the amount of air pollutants released by cars to make the atmosphere safer for humans.

          • Turbocharger / Supercharger
            Turbocharged

            Manufacturers today offer turbochargers to boost engine power without affecting its fuel economy. Superchargers are found in more expensive cars but on the downside, they are not very efficient.

            Turbochargers are more effective but require plenty of heat management. Superchargers, meanwhile, offer linear bump in power but they are comparatively more complex.

          • Electric Motor
            No

            Tests reveal that electric cars are substantially more efficient than internal combustion engines.

        • Dimensions & Weight

          • Length
            3990 mm

            The length of the car decides its segment. In India, cars that are less than 4 metres in length enjoy reduced excise duties.

            Length
            • Length: 3990

            Longer length results in more cabin space. It also adds to straight line stability.

          • Width
            1755 mm

            A car's width is defined as its widest point without its mirrors.

            Width
            • Width: 1755

            Although more width gives you more lateral space inside the cabin, it makes the car more difficult to park in narrow spots.

          • Height
            1523 mm

            The height of the car denotes the highest point of the vehicle from the ground.

            Height
            • Height: 1523

            Taller the car, the more headroom there is on offer inside the cabin. However, a tall boy stance also affect the car’s centre of gravity which can cause more body roll.

          • Wheelbase
            2501 mm

            The space between the center of the front and rear wheels.

            Wheelbase
            • Wheelbase: 2501

            The longer the wheelbase, the more space there is inside the cabin.

          • Ground Clearance
            165 mm

            It’s the space between the lowest point of the car and the ground.

            Ground Clearance
            • Ground Clearance: 165

            If the car has a good amount of clearance, it’s easier for it to clear big speed breakers and overall, deal with bad roads.

        • Capacity

          • Doors
            5 Doors

            The number of doors define the category of car. For example – four door means sedan, two-door means coupe while five-doors usually refer to a hatchback, MPV or an SUV.

            Doors
            • Doors: 5
          • Seating Capacity

          • Bootspace
            345 litres

            Boot space defines how practical the car is with respect to how much luggage it can carry.

            Bootspace
            • Bootspace: 345

            A boot with a large and wide opening is ideal for loading heavy items. Additionally, a lower loading height also makes it easy to put in luggage.

            The rear suspension can either be non-independent or independent.

            Most of the budget cars have non-independent suspension while the more expensive ones get independent rear suspension which offers better bump absorption.

          • Front Brake Type
            Disc

            Most of the vehicles sold in India get ventilated or non-ventilated disc brakes upfront.

            - The ventilated discs are more popular thanks to them providing better stopping power and it also works well in hot conditions.

          • Rear Brake Type
            Drum

            In affordable cars, drums brakes are fitted at the rear as they are cost effective.

            Disc setup at the rear is now getting more popular as cars are getting faster in the real world.

          • Minimum Turning Radius
            5 metres

            The official kerb-to-kerb minimum radius a car takes to complete a 180-degree turn.

            Shorter the turning radius, the lesser space you need to make a tight turn or to take a U-turn.

          • Steering Type
            Power assisted (Electric)

            Almost all steering systems in cars today have an assist to help park them better at low speeds - these can be hydraulic, electro-hydraulic or electric.

          • Wheels
            Alloy Wheels

            The wheels used on cars are either steel rims with plastic wheel cover hub or alloy wheels on higher spec models or expensive cars.

            Razor cut, or diamond cut alloy wheel design are not getting more popular. Manufacturers usually offer these in top-end trim of their car models.

          • Spare Wheel
            Steel

            Important in a country with varying quality of roads, spare wheels ensure one doesn’t get stranded when one of the main tyres gets damaged.

            Select premium car models feature space savers (smaller than the stock wheels) to save on boot space.

        Tata Altroz Racer R2 Reviews

        • 5.0/5

          (1 Ratings) 1 Reviews
        • Must be a good choice
          This car is very awesome for youngsters. Excellent performance and look. The transmission node is superb like a racing car. It is very easy to shift the gear as the pattern of gear from 1 to 6 is aligned perfectly. Safety is another important thing. it provides excellent safety. But only available in 3 colours. Red and Black is not available. But red/black/white combination is awesome for this design and we can expect more color variants in future. 360-degree camera and sunroof is other speciality of this vehicle. Mileage in city is around 12 km/ltr and 14 km/ltr in highway. so overall i will give 5 start rating for this 5 star rated safety car.
