The Zest in Sri Lanka is offered with two engine options. The diesel Zest is powered by the 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine capable of 90 PS and 200 Nm of torque, matched to the 5-speed automated manual transmission. The petrol unit is a 1.2-liter turbocharged engine developing 90 PS and 140 Nm of torque, paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.

The Bolt is available only with the Revotron engine, and makes the same 90 PS and 140 Nm of torque as the Zest, and comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
