The 1.2-litre Revotron engine currently powers the Tata Tiago. Transmission units may feature a 5-speed manual and a dual-clutch automatic.

There is hear-say that the Tata Altroz may also be launched with the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that powers the Tata Nexon. This engine may be available with the JTP version. If the Tata Altroz features this 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, it will compete against the Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS, and the Volkswagen Polo GT TSI.
