Tata Altroz vs Maruti Baleno – Drag Race
The YouTuber starts the video by explaining that the Altro is a diesel variant while the Baleno is the petrol one. He begins the race in his Altroz and his friend drives the Baleno. In the first attempt, he zips past the Baleno from the starting line itself. He was never behind during the race. He was quite surprised to see the performance of the Baleno. However, it was quite natural because the diesel version of the Altroz makes significantly more power and torque compared to the petrol unit of the Baleno. The YouTuber then switched cars and drove the Baleno alone on the highway. He reports that the high-speed stability of Baleno is not great. Also, the engine takes forever to reach high speeds. The Altroz feels much more planted at high speeds and also reach the top speeds quite quickly.
The diesel Altroz comes with a 1.5-litre unit that produces 89 hp and 200 Nm of peak power and torque. Altroz comes with the sole option of a 5-speed manual gearbox. It retails from Rs 5.89 lakh and goes all the way up to Rs 9.64 lakh, ex-showroom. The Baleno, on the other hand, comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine that makes 83 hp and 113 Nm of peak power and torque. This engine comes mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox. It ranges between Rs 5.99 lakh and Rs 9.45 lakh, ex-showroom.
