Domestic company Tata Motors has introduced its latest car Tata Punch and this car became very popular among the people due to its features even before coming on the road. The ground clearance of this car is not only better but many good features have been given in it from the braking system to door opening. This is the company’s new entry-level car, which will be placed below the Tata Nexon in the company’s portfolio. That is, it will be one of the cheapest offerings of the company i.e. if your budget is less then this car can prove to be a good option for you. This is the company’s first car to come with this platform. Let’s know about this car.
Tata Punch Engine
The Tata Punch is powered by a 1.2L 3 cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine, which can generate 85bhp power and 113Nm pickup torque. The same engine is also found in the Altroz and Tiago twins. There is an option of a 5-speed manual system and a five-speed AMT transmission. This engine comes with Dynapro technology, which refuels slowly instead of at high pressure in the engine. This saves fuel and generates a good amount of electricity. The AMT transmission comes with height-adjusted tuning maps, which help the car climb higher.
Tata Punch Features
Talking about the features, Tata Punch has a 7-inch touchscreen system, semi-digital instrument cluster, auto AC, automatic headlights, connected car tech (Creative i-RA pack) and cruise control. Safety features on offer include ABS with EBD, dual front airbags and a rear parking camera.
Tata Punch Variants
It is available in four trims: Pure, Adventure, Exploded and Creative. The Kaziranga variant is exclusive to the top trim.
Tata Punch Exterior
In terms of styling, the Tata Punch HBX has lived up to the concept it is based on, and the newly revealed rear design is no different. The sculpted tailgate, integrated roof spoiler and tail-lights with Y-shaped LED elements are similar to those seen on the HBX. Up front, the punch has a split-headlight setup that is reminiscent of the Harrier and Safari. The rest of the styling is a toned-down version of the HBX, as it retains the dual-tone colour scheme, squared-off wheel arch and upright stance, though off-road-oriented with chunky body cladding and sleek tyres.
Tata Punch Interior
The interior of the Punch looks fresh and streamlined. The cabin of the Tata Punch follows the two-tone theme. The central part of the dashboard as well as the door pads have been painted white while the rest can be seen in black. The centre-stacked touchscreen infotainment system, semi-digital instrument cluster and even flat-bottom steering have been carried forward from the Altroz premium hatchback. And yes, that’s a good thing. Distinctive elements include square aircon vents with blue borders, L-shaped silver door handles, push start/stop buttons and A-pillar mounted tweeters.
Tata Punch Rivals
Tata Punch competes with Mahindra KUV100 NXT and Maruti Ignis. Keeping in mind the punch price, some trims of the Nissan Magnate and Renault Kiger can also be seen as options.
Tata Punch Price
Tata Punch’s price starts from Rs. 5.93 lakhs and goes up to Rs. 9.49 lakhs. The Tata Punch is offered in 22 variants – the base model of the Punch is Pure and the top variant is the Tata Punch Kaziranga Edition AMT Era which comes at a price tag of Rs. 9.49 lakhs.
