Tata Punch secures 5 stars in the Global NCAP crash test with 5 stars for adult occupants and 4 stars for child occupant safety.
Tata Punch Secures 5 stars in Global NCAP
Tata Punch has secured 5 stars in adult occupant safety with 16.45 points. As a matter of fact, the Punch scores the highest points in adult occupant safety and it’s the safest car to be ever tested by Global NCAP in India. Tata Punch secured 16.45 points out of 17 in adult safety and 40.89 points out of 49 in child safety. The bodyshell of the Punch was also rated stable and it offers standard safety features across the range.
Talking about the safety features, the Punch packs in dual airbags, ABS with EBD, brake sway control, ISOFIX anchorages, speed sensing alarm, seatbelt pre-tensioners and more as standard across the range. The Punch offered good protection for both the driver and passenger’s chest, head and legs. The rear-mounted ISOFIX anchorages also offered great safety for child occupants.
Tata Punch continues the trend of Tata Motors to offer segment-best safety at an affordable price tag. The ALFA-ARC platform is shared with the Altroz that also scored 5 stars in Global NCAP. Interestingly, despite being more affordable, the Punch is safer than the Altroz and even the XUV300 that is also a 5-star rated SUV. Tata Motors is all set to launch the Punch on October 18th and the bookings are already open.
