The Punch will most probably get a 1.2-litre Revtron engine. This engine also powers the Tiago and Altroz in India. Tata might re-tune it to extract more power. Gearbox options will include a manual and an AMT gearbox. Tata might bring 1.2-litre turbo petrol in the future like it did on the Altroz.
