Tata Punch launched

Tata Punch launched

Tata Motor has further expanded its product line up in India with the launch of the Punch sub-compact SUV. The newly introduced Tata Punch is available in four variant options – Pure, Adventure, Accomplished, and Creative.

Tata's micro-SUV is available in seven single and dual-tone colour options, which include

Orcus White (optional black roof)

Daytona Grey (optional black roof)

Tropical Mist (optional black roof)

Atomic Orange (optional black roof)

Meteor Bronze (optional black roof)

Tornado Blue (optional white roof)

Calypso Red (optional white roof).




What's good about it?

Tata Punch has been awarded a full five-star rating for adult protection and a four-star rating for child occupant protection by the Global NCAP. The vehicle offers a high ground clearance of 187mm. To drive over tricky terrain, the vehicle has an approach angle of 20.3 degrees and a departure angle of 37.6 degrees. Moreover, the vehicle has an unladen ramp over angle of 22.2 degrees. To further enhance its SUV character, the AMT option gets the first-in-segment 'Traction-Pro Mode'. This is particularly helpful in situations where one of the wheels is stuck in mud or low traction surfaces. Additionally, the vehicle also offers Idle Start Stop mode, which automatically turns off the engine at signals and traffic to further enhance fuel efficiency.

What's not so good?

The Base Pure variant is limited to a manual transmission option and it misses out on features like power windows for rear occupants, remote central locking, anti-glare IRVM, wheel covers, speakers, USB charging port, and body-coloured ORVMs. However, customers can opt for the Rhythm pack to avail floating 3.5-inch infotainment screen, four speakers, and steering audio controls.

Best variant to buy?

The feature-rich Creative variant is a good option to consider. It offers all the modern features such as rain-sensing wipers, auto-folding ORVMs, auto headlamps, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, automatic climate control, cooled glove box, rear defogger, projector headlamps, LED DRLs, and more. As for customers on a budget, the Adventure variant with the Rhythm pack is a decent choice. The Rhythm pack additionally offers a seven-inch Harman touchscreen infotainment unit, reversing camera, and two-tweeters.
