Tata Motors on October 18 launched the five-seater mini SUV Punch at an introductory price of Rs 5.49 lakh, the first all-new product launch by the company in 2021.

The Tata Punch is positioned below its Nexon and will compete against the Renault Kiger and the Nissan Magnite, priced at Rs 5.6 lakh. The Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and Mahindra KUV100 NXT are the two entry-level SUVs in India priced below the Punch.

Tata Motors opened bookings for the Punch for Rs 21,000 on October 4. The Punch, designed on the platform used by the Altroz premium hatchback, scored a crash safety rating of 5 from Global NCAP.

The Punch will be available in four variants—Pure, Adventure, Accomplished, Creative—that Tata Motors is calling as personas. The top-end manual variant is priced at Rs 8.49 lakh.

The Punch is available in manual and automatic-manual transmission (AMT) versions. The AMT variant is priced Rs 60,000 more than the manual variant. In addition, there are four customisation packs available starting at Rs 30,000.

Just like most other models priced below Rs 6.5 lakh, the Punch will come only with a petrol engine for now. The mini-SUV is powered by a 3-cylinder 1199cc engine that delivers peak power of 86ps.

The SUV, which will be available in seven colours, will come powered by the same 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine seen on the Nexon.

The company will keep its options open for a turbocharged version and a fully electric version, depending on consumer feedback.

The Punch comes with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, engine start-stop, Eco and City drive modes, 90 degree opening doors, flat floor in the rear, steering mounted controls, 7-inch infotainment system, rear camera, voice commands, cruise control, height adjustable driver seat, auto folding ORVMs and temperature control.

Tata Motors claims that the Punch has been tested for more than 2 million kilometres clocked on 150 prototypes. These were driven in hot—50 degrees Celsius in Rajasthan— and cold conditions—minus 10 degrees Celsius in Ladakh. The car will is being at the company’s Pune facility.
