Tata Altroz Racer Automatic Might Be Coming Soon

Tata Altroz Racer recently made its debut with only a manual gearbox option. However, the brand might introduce an automatic transmission in the future and it depends totally on the demand. This is confirmed on the sidelines of the Racer’s launch by Vivek Srivatsa, Tata Motors’ Chief commercial officer.

Tata Altroz Racer Might Get Automatic Soon

The Altroz Racer sports a 120 hp, 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbo-petrol engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. If the automatic comes, it would likely be a 7-speed DCA that’s available with the Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine and the standard Altroz’s petrol unit.

Srivatsa stated that the priority was to get the Altroz Racer to the market as fast as possible and hence, the 6-speed manual gearbox was the way to go due to its relatively lower development costs and time. He further adds that the Altroz Racer should be able to be sold as much as its rival i20 N Line or even surpass it.

The sales will be further helped by the competitive price point. The Racer is priced at Rs 9.49 Lakh for the entry-level variant and goes all the way up to Rs 10.99 lakh for the top-spec, which is already Rs 50,000 and Rs 28,000 less than the i20 N Line relatively.

An automatic would be a welcoming addition to the Altroz Racer to make it an even better competitor to the i20 N Line, which has both 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic options.
