The Tata Punch has made its debut at a starting price of Rs 5.49 lakh. The Punch mainly rivals the Maruti Suzuki Ignis, which has substantially lower pricing across its variant line-up.
The Tata Punch has been launched in India at Rs 5.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The prices go all the way up to Rs 9.09 lakh (ex-showroom) for the Creative variant of the Punch AMT. The Punch rivals the Maruti Suzuki Ignis, which is priced between Rs 5.10 lakh (ex-showroom) and Rs 7.57 lakh (ex-showroom). The current prices for the Tata Punch are introductory and will be effective until December 31, 2021, post which the Tata Punch will undergo a marginal price hike.
The Punch also rivals the Mahindra KUV100NXT, which is priced between Rs 6.04 lakh (ex-showroom) and Rs 7.77 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Tata Punch is available in four variants, out of which three are available with an AMT for a premium of Rs 60,000. The Punch also gets add-on customisation packs, namely the Rhythm, Dazzle, and iRA.
The Punch is based on Tata’s Alfa architecture, which also underpins the Altroz. The Punch has scored a five-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test. The engine that powers the Punch is a 1.2-litre NA three-cylinder petrol motor, which we have experienced in the Altroz. It produces 85bhp and 113Nm and is mated to a five-speed unit – the automatic variants, however, are offered with an AMT.
The feature list on the Punch includes automatic headlamps and wipers, puddle lamps, and powered outside rearview mirrors. There is a 7-inch infotainment system, which takes the centre stage on the dashboard.
