The 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine is essentially the 1.2-liter Xeta engine fitted with a turbo.

The Revotron petrol engine gets Tata’s MultiDrive functionality which allows the driver to select between three driving modes – Sport, Eco and City. Depending on the mode, the throttle map of the car is altered for better power delivery or higher fuel efficiency.
