Tata Motors has finally launched the Tata Punch, which has been a long time coming. The Punch, which is effectively a micro-SUV, will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Ignis, KUV 100, and other small SUVs. The new Tata Punch was officially unveiled only hours ago, and here's all you need to know about it.
The Tata Punch will be built on Tata's ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) architecture, just like the Altroz. In comparison to the Altroz, the Punch features a higher ground clearance of 187 mm and a larger boot space of around 366 litres. Because the Punch is ALFA ARC compatible, it is anticipated that the vehicle will receive a 5-star safety rating when it is tested. In terms of safety, the Punch will come standard with dual airbags, ISOFIX mounts, ABS, and EBD.
Tata is attempting to capture the Tiago's young spirit by including colourful accents around the vents. The MID will be a semi-digital device, comparable to the Tata Altroz's. The touchscreen infotainment display will be the same size as the Altroz, at 7 inches. There are steering-mounted controls in addition to the push start button, making navigation easy while driving.
The car will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with Dynapro technology. The burner will be connected to either a 5-speed manual or an automatic transmission (AMT). The new Tata Punch will also have an idle-start stop option for better efficiency, as well as a segment-first Traction Pro mode for higher traction in the AMT trims. The engine will accelerate from 0 to 100 mph in around 16.5 seconds.
While the price of the micro-SUV has yet to be revealed, consumers can reserve one for Rs. 21,000 at any of Tata's 1000+ showrooms in 800+ locations. The vehicle can also be reserved online through Tata's official website, which is currently down owing to high traffic (read popularity).
If you're searching for a new car with a lot of features, the Tata Punch accomplished with the Dazzle Pack is the one to go for. While the Accomplished model lacks the Creative's automated headlamps, wipers, and climate control, it nevertheless provides a pleasurable driving experience.
The new Tata Punch will compete in the nascent micro-SUV sector, which consists primarily of hatchbacks with higher ground clearance and SUV-like appearance. Currently, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis will be a direct competitor, with the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and Renault Kwid serving as more entry-level options. The recently unveiled Citroen C3 will compete in the same segment as the Tata Punch, and Hyundai's Casper is set to arrive in India in 2022.
