Tata’s micro SUV, the Punch, surely has quite a few rivals given its size and price. How well does it size up against them? Let’s find out

The Tata Punch recently went on sale and is available in four trims: Pure, Adventure, Accomplished, and Creative. Being an entry-level SUV for the carmaker, it is positioned to take on compact and mid-size hatchbacks as well as affordable sub-4m SUVs.

Here’s how it fares against some of its rivals and similarly priced vehicles:

  • It is the Mahindra KUV100 NXT which is the tallest among all the aforementioned models.

  • The bigger Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite are longer, wider, and have the biggest wheelbase compared to the rest of the cars here. Yet, they are shorter than the Mahindra KUV100 NXT.

  • All the models are equipped with a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. The Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite, on the other hand, get a smaller 1-litre naturally aspirated unit (72PS/96Nm).

  • Renault and Nissan also offer an option of a powerful 1-litre turbo-petrol engine (100PS/ 160Nm).

  • The Tata Punch’s power output is higher than almost all naturally aspirated engines in the list (the Swift develops the maximum power of 90PS), but its engine makes the same amount of torque as the two Maruti models.

  • As far as transmission options are concerned, all models except the KUV100 NXT are available with an optional automatic gearbox. The Punch, Ignis, Swift, and Grand i10 Nios all get the same gearbox duo: a 5-speed MT and an optional 5-speed AMT. While the Renault Kiger gets the identical setup, Nissan doesn’t offer the Magnite’s 1-litre N.A. engine with an automatic gearbox. The Kiger and Magnite’s turbocharged engines come with a 5-speed MT and an optional CVT.

It's not a tried and tested production in the market. How it will fare in the market is a wait & watch scenario.
