The production-spec Tata Altroz was revealed on 3 December 2019. With the reveal, it was confirmed that Tata Altroz is bound to receive two BS-VI engine options in the form a 1.2L naturally-aspirated petrol and a 1.5L turbo-diesel unit. Now Carwale has claimed that there is also a turbocharged petrol motor under development for the Altroz.

The 1.2L turbocharged engine will be the one that powered the unit that was showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

The new engine will be a performance-oriented 1.2L turbocharged petrol unit which will be added to the portfolio in late-2020. If you recall, this is the same powertrain the Geneva-spec Tata Altroz was seen with. This engine has been rated to deliver 102 PS of maximum power and 140 Nm of peak torque. And will be available with either a five-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT.

While the turbo-petrol unit will be added to it in the later stage, initially it will be available in the below engine options.
