Tata Punch base variant detailed in a walkaround video


Tata recently unveiled the Punch and they will be announcing the prices on 20th October. They have already announced the four variants in which the Punch will be offered. There is Pure, Adventure, Accomplished and Creative. Here, we have the first walkaround video of the Pure variant of the Punch.

The video is uploaded on YouTube by A2Y cardrive. It is a basic walkaround video that shows us the exterior as well as the interior of the base variant of the Punch. We already know what all features will the Pure variant offer.

We can see that even the base variant has a muscular SUV stance because of the black plastic cladding and wheel arches. Even the base variant gets 185/70 R15 tyres that wrap the 15-inch steel black rims. The Punch is finished in the Daytona Grey paint scheme in the video. The Pure variant will also be offered with the Orcus White colour.

The front is inspired heavily by the Harrier. The main headlamp sits in the bumper and there is a strip that integrates with the upper grille. It houses LED turn indicators because it is the base variant, it misses out on LED Daytime Running Lamps.

It also does not get a projector setup for the headlamp and there are no fog lamps. The outside rearview mirrors are finished in black but they do get LED turn indicators in them. The door handle is also finished in black.

Then the person shows us the interior where we can see it gets a black and white dashboard. The white inserts are also there on the door pads. There is no infotainment system because this is the base variant. It gets manual air conditioning and there is no multi-functional steering wheel. The gear knob also looks regular without any chrome inserts.

There is no cooled glovebox and it also does not get light in it. You get power windows only for the front doors. There are rear headrests but they are integrated and there is no rear armrest. There is also no parcel tray for the boot.

It also does not get a digital instrument cluster. Instead, it is using a twin-pod analogue instrument cluster with a tachometer on the left, a speedometer on the right and a small display in between. It also gets a regular key that you have to twist to start the vehicle. There are no vanity mirrors for the driver or the front occupant.

It does come with quite a bit of safety equipment. Tata offers Brake Sway Control, an Anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake Distribution, dual airbags, rear parking sensors, Electronic Steering Stability and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard.

The variant that we see in the video is equipped with a manual gearbox because you cannot get the Pure variant with an AMT transmission. However, you still get two driving modes namely, City and Eco. The engine is a 1.2-litre petrol unit that produces 86 PS of max power and 113 Nm of peak torque. The pricing of the base variant is expected to be somewhere around Rs. 5 lakhs ex-showroom.
