The Altroz Racer gets important visual and functional upgrades which could help the Tata take on Hyundai’s hot-hatch much better…or would they?

Tata Altroz Racer and Hyundai i20 N Line

At the 2023 Auto Expo, Tata appeased driving enthusiasts with the only ‘performance’ showcase in the form of the Altroz Racer, a sportier version of the marque’s only premium hatchback. The carmaker has done more than just slap some stickers onto the Altroz, as it has fitted it with the more powerful turbo-petrol engine from the Nexon. If released in the market, this would be a true contender to the Hyundai i20 N Line. 

So let’s see how they both stack up against each other:
