We break down the pros, cons, and reasons to buy (or skip) the Creative variant of the Tata Punch

The top-spec Tata Punch Creative variant is the one that is closest to bigger and more premium offerings. It’s pricier than its previous trim by more than a lakh, but does it offer enough value for you to stretch your budget by that much? Let’s find out:

Variant

Petrol-MT

Petrol-AMT

Stretch to Creative

Rs 8.49 lakh

Rs 9.09 lakh

Why should you consider the Creative variant?

If you want the best that Tata’s new entry-level SUV has to offer, the Punch Creative is for you. It looks the best thanks to the projector headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, and 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. The Creative variant also gets the most comforts and fancy features like semi-digital instrument cluster, auto AC and cruise control.

What could have been better about the Punch Creative variant?

The Rs 1.2 lakh premium over the previous variant does feel a bit steep for the added features. For the price, it should have been equipped with rear AC vents, Tata’s iRA connected car tech features, and more leatherette upholstery in the cabin.

Should you consider the iRA pack?

Features added: iRA connected car tech

This is a feature pack you can do without. Tata’s iRA connected car tech includes some remote functions, live location tracking, and vehicle telematics. If your heart is set on using the Tata Punch with everything it has to offer you could consider investing the premium but it’s not a feature set you’d particularly miss.

I did test drive with the AMT. The driver armrest with a wallet holder is a feature that they need to have. Everything else is fine.
