2021 Tata Punch - Exteriors
Tata Punch has carried some inspiration from its elder brothers, the Nexon and the Harrier. The wide Humanity line takes on the front, coupled with slim LED DRLs and projector headlights. The tall positioning of the air intake gives the Punch a water fording capability of over 370mm. On the side, we get side cladding on the wheel arches and on the side sills to uplift the masculinity. On the back, we get circular LED taillights and a raked windscreen for a sporty stance. Wide opening 90-degree doors makes the ingress and egress an easy affair.
2021 Tata Punch - Interiors
On the inside, the Punch features a high-set dashboard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In the top trims, the infotainment also supports Android Auto and Apple Car Play along with iRA connect. In addition to that, we get a semi-digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, ABS with EBD, dual airbags, automatic headlights and wipers, rear-seat armrest etc. Thanks to a flat floor, rear passengers won’t have any issue cramming in one more passenger in the middle.
2021 Tata Punch - Engine and Gearbox
Tata was earlier expected to offer the Punch with both naturally aspirated and turbocharged petrol engines. However, it’s now confirmed to have only the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 86Hp and 113 Nm of torque. However, Tata has reworked the intake management and has added new Dyna-pro tech that improves low-end torque in every situation possible. Tata Motors has also added a Traction Pro system that uses brakes to take out the Punch from sticky and muddy situations. While the 5-speed manual is standard, the 5-speed AMT will also be offered and Traction Pro will be exclusive to the AMT variants only. Tata has also offered a segment-first safety feature called brake sway control that will improve the stability while braking before the ABS kicks in and help the car to avoid swaying.
2021 Tata Punch - Variants
Tata Motors has tweaked its vehicle nomenclature with the Punch. It is offered in four variants - Pure, Adventure, Accomplished and Creative. Furthermore, Tata will also offer customisation options like Rythm and Dazzle to tweak the features as per customers’ needs. Tata Punch will be offered in 7 colour options along with dual-tone options for the top-spec trim levels. The bookings for the Punch are now open against Rs 21,000 and you can also explore the Punch on the recently-launched online virtual showroom. Tata Motors is said to launch the Punch on October 20th and it will be positioned below the Nexon.
