The two powertrains that were fully developed in-house are the Gamma 1.6 T-GDI engine and Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engine.

The Gamma 1.6 T-GDI engine produces a maximum output of 204hp and torque of 27.0kgf.m at 6,000 rpm and 1,750 rpm, respectively, it costs KRW69.5bn ($60.67m), .

The engine uses an exhaust manifold integrated turbocharger with twin scroll, air guided intercooler, direct fuel injection system and dual CVVT, to maximize fuel efficiency and performance.

The Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engine applies new technologies, such as low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation to satisfy the next-generation Euro6 regulations, it delivers a maximum output of 150ps and maximum torque of 39.0kgf.m without sacrificing its eco-friendliness.

As required by new regulations, the Euro6 reduced Nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 56%, compared to Euro5.
