Tata Motors announced a new family of engines called 'Revotron' and showcased the first engine in the series - a 1.2-liter turbocharged MPFI petrol engine - in Mumbai this afternoon. Tata Motors does not specifically state which product this engine would find application first, but said it's designed for the compact car segment from a global approach.
The 1.2-liter unit, the first MPFI turbo, features an Advanced catalytic converter for reduced emissions. The four-cylinder unit has a 75mm x 69.5mm Bore x Stroke dimension producing 85 PS @ 5,000 RPM and 140 Nm between 1,750 - 3,500 RPM. The engine employs two valves per cylinder and will pair with existing gearboxes when launched. Tata however say new gearboxes are on their way.

The engine features a water-cooled turbocharger with low inertial turbo wheels, asymmetric pistons with PVD coating, stiffened cast iron crankcase, silent steel construction oil sump, 8-hole injectors, and is capable of meeting future emission norms.
Tata also say the engines offer 'superior noise performance' and multiple driving modes the driver can choose from.
