As far as the mechanicals are concerned, there will be a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine under the bonnet. It will be tuned to churn out 110bhp and 140Nm of torque while being mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Interestingly, the Altroz turbocharged variant will not be offered with a DCT transmission, at least during the launch. However, we might see it in the future.
