The Tata Altroz Racer has the power advantage on paper. Can it use that to beat the Maruti Suzuki Fronx, which has an enthusiast-friendly turbo-petrol engine?

The Tata Altroz Racer has been launched in India from Rs 9.49 lakh to Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It gets a sporty paint scheme, plentiful feature additions and most importantly, a more powerful turbo-petrol engine. But for similar money, one can consider the middle turbo-petrol variants of the Fronx, which has an enthusiastic turbo-petrol engine. 

In this report, we are going to find out which car is quicker from 0-100kmph. But before that…
