Tata Altroz Racer: which variant is the best?

We recently got a sportier version of Tata's premium hatchback called the Tata Altroz Racer. It gets some cosmetic changes inside and out, added performance and more features to set it apart from the regular hatchback. The Altroz Racer is offered in three variants – R1, R2 and R3 – priced in the range of Rs 9.49 lakh to Rs 10.99 lakh (introductory ex-showroom pan-India). In case you were wondering which is the best variant to buy, we have figured it out to help you pick the right one:

Our Analysis

R1: Packs plentiful features with a strong focus on safety tech. Can consider stretching your budget if you need a few more creature comforts.

R2: The best variant of the Altroz Racer on offer. Gets all the comforts and conveniences from the previous R1 trim, while adding key features such as a sunroof, a digital driver’s display, and a 360-degree camera.

R3: Go for it only if you need the full premium experience of the Tata Altroz Racer thanks to features such as ventilated front seats, an air purifier, and connected car tech.

The R2 variant of the Tata Altroz Racer packs a lot of features for its price. Not only does it get a stylish design and an upmarket cabin, but also has plenty of useful tech on board. It’s the right balance between the ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ from the entire lineup of the sportier Altroz. You can consider stretching to the top-spec R3 variant only if you want the full premium experience of the Altroz Racer and a few additional features including front ventilated seats.
