The Punch has a boxy silhouette and borrows certain design elements from the Harrier (split headlamp) and Nexon (gloss-black grille). The plastic body cladding doubles up as bumpers.

Move to the side, and you see the 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, the Altroz’s 90-degree-opening doors, C-pillar-mounted door handles, and a slightly raked roofline with roof rails. The rear is inspired by the Nexon, evident from the similar tri-arrow taillights and tailgate.

The cabin looks uncluttered, with a dual-tone dark grey and ivory theme. Features include projector headlamps, free-floating 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the Altroz’s 7-inch semi-digital instrument cluster, automatic AC, cruise control, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, iRA connected car technology, and push-button start/stop. The connected car technology gets remote lock/unlock, remote lights on/off, intrusion alert, geo-fencing and live car location. 

Passenger safety is covered by dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX seat anchors, cornering control, and a rear parking camera.

The micro SUV is 3827mm long, 1742mm wide, and 1615mm tall. It boasts a best-in-class ground clearance of 187mm. The boot space and water wading capacity stands at 366 litres and 370mm, respectively. 

The Tata Punch has been provided with the Tiago and Altroz’s 86PS/113Nm 1.2-litre petrol engine, paired with 5-speed manual and AMT options. You also have the idle-start/stop system and Traction Pro Management (only for AMT). The Altroz’s 110PS 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine will probably be introduced later.

The Punch SUV is expected to be priced from Rs 5.5 lakh (ex-showroom) onward. It primarily rivals the MMahindra KUV100 NXT and Maruti Ignis, but its price range will put it at par with the Maruti Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, as well.
