Tata Motors will be virtually unveiling the all-new Punch in the Indian market on October 4. The homegrown automaker has sent a formal invite confirming the same. The new Tata Punch will share its ALFA underpinnings with the Tata Altroz hatchback. It will be launched next month in the Indian market.
Design-wise, the 2021 Punch adopts the family design language. The front grille and DRLs get chrome underlining. The lower grille, on the other hand, features an inverted tri-arrow design on the mesh. Furthermore, the micro-SUV flaunts a sporty front bumper that accommodates round fog lamps and wide air intakes.
A few days back, Tata had released the interior image of the micro SUV. The image gave us an idea of the cabin of the vehicle. It boasts of dual-tone upholstery. Besides featuring a semi-digital instrument cluster, the all-new Punch will come loaded with a host of features. These include chrome inside door handles, manual-dimming IRVM, automatic climate control with rectangular AC vents, all power windows, and a flat-bottom steering wheel with multi-function controls. The image also revealed a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system. The unit will be compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In terms of safety features, the micro-SUV is likely to get dual-front airbags, ISOFIX child seat anchorages, height-adjustable seat belts for front seats, and ABS with EBD.
Performance-wise, we can expect the all-new Punch to get a couple of petrol engine options. The micro-SUV might get a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated unit that is capable of returning a top power of 85 bhp and a peak torque of 113 Nm. This particular engine is likely to come mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The homegrown automaker might also equip the top-end trim of the upcoming Punch with a 1.2-litre turbocharged motor. This engine is likely to deliver 108 bhp power and 140 Nm torque.
