The biggest change for the Altroz Racer over the standard Altrozx would be under the hood. Unlike the standard Altroz iTurbo, which is equipped with a 110 bhp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine, the Altroz Racer will be powered by the Nexon’s 120 bhp, 1.2-litre unit, offering an additional 10 bhp and 30 Nm of torque.

This enhanced performance will place the Altroz Racer in direct competition with the Hyundai i20 N Line, which features a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 120 bhp and 172 Nm. The Altroz Racer is expected to come exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission.

The Altroz Racer is anticipated to be priced higher than the iTurbo, which is currently in the 9.20 lakh–10.10 lakh (ex-showroom) range. This pricing will position it against rivals like the Hyundai i20 N Line which is priced between 10 lakh to 11.42 lakh (ex-showroom) for manual variants and 11.15 lakh to 12.52 lakh (ex-showroom) for automatic trims.
