Tata Punch

Tata Motors opened bookings for the Punch micro-SUV early last week against a token amount of Rs 21,000. Post much wait, Tata Punch will be launched in the country on 18 October. The vehicle will be available in four variant options – Pure, Adventure, Accomplished, and Creative. The upcoming model is based on the Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) Architecture. 

Under the hood, the Punch will be powered by a 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine that generates 84bhp at 6,000rpm and 113Nm of torque at 3,300rpm. This engine comes mated to a five-speed manual and AMT option. The vehicle offers two engine drive modes (Eco and City) to meet individual driving needs. The AMT option additionally offers ‘Traction-Pro Mode’ which assists in situations where one of the wheels is stuck in mud or low traction surfaces. To learn more about the Tata Punch, click here.

In terms of safety, the upcoming model will be equipped with the latest ADAS system with automatic braking and collision avoidance, Pilot Assist function, and detection of other road users.
