Tata unveils its upcoming micro SUV – Punch, to be priced lesser than Nexon
New Delhi : Tata Punch will be the next mico-SUV offered by the company that had earlier released an image of SUV in production spec, that was earlier known as the Tata HBX.
It will be the company's smallest SUV which will be placed below Nexon. The biggest positive about the car remains that it is not much different from the HBX concept showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo.
Tata Punch sports the design language of larger SUVs like Harrier and Safari.
As per the image released by Tata Motors, it can be confirmed that the front bumper and the body cladding have been toned down from the HBX concept. However, the squared wheel arches, upright stance and heavy cladding all around still gives it a proper SUV-like look. The front bumper also features Tata's signature Y design motifs and also houses a pair of fog lamps.
The interiors of the car are yet to be released, if we go by the concept then it must come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The Punch will share a lot of interior bits like the three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, HVAC controls, and even the part-digital instrument cluster with a digital tachometer and analogue speedometer, with the Altroz.
It has been learned that the car will be powered with a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated engine. The higher variants of the engine will be 1.2 litre turbocharged that does duty on the Altroz iTurbo. Transmission options will likely include a 5-speed manual and an AMT gearbox.
The price of the car are expected to begin from Rs 5 lakh mark and it will compete cars like Ignis, KUV 100 in the segment.
