Tata launched their all-new micro SUV Punch in the market last year. Tata Punch competes with cars like Mahindra KUV100 and Maruti Ignis in the segment. It became popular among buyers in a short span of time. With 5 Star safety rating at Global NCAP crash test, Tata Punch is currently the safest car in the country. Currently, Tata is offering Punch in four variants. Like other Tata cars, Tata might introduce a Dark Edition version of the Punch SUV in future. If that happens, how would the Tata Punch look like. Here we have a render video that shows just that.
The video has been uploaded by MotoRenders By DharaviTeam on their YouTube channel. In this video, the render artist shows how Punch would look like if Tata were to launch a Dark Edition. The artist has imagined the Dark Edition of Punch as a much more rugged version than the standard. In order to achieve the rugged look, the stock dual tone alloy wheels on the Punch were replaced with an all black rim with chunky tyre wrapped around it.
Other than that, the wheels, the chrome elements that were there on the front grille have been completely blacked out. Even the Tata logo on the car has been blacked out. The car continues to gets projector headlamps, LED DRLs and fog lamps on the bumper. The main change that makes it a Dark Edition is the paint job. The car now gets Black paint job which completely changes the overall look. Overall, the car does look good in the shade of black.
No other changes are made to the car here. Tata Punch is actually based on the HBX concept which Tata showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The car comes with decent number of features like a touchscreen infotainment screen, iRA connected car feature, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, manually height adjustable seats, semi-digital instrument cluster (similar to what we have seen on Altroz), 90 degree wide opening doors and so on.
Tata Punch has a muscular design which gives it an SUV like look. There are several modifications already available in the market. We have featured some modified examples on our website as well. Tata Punch is currently powered by a petrol engine. It is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated, three cylinder engine that generates 86 Ps and 113 Nm of peak torque. The engine is offered with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT gearbox option. The AMT version of the Punch gets Traction Pro mode.
Tata is planning to introduce a diesel version of Tata Punch as well. A test mule was spotted at a fuel station in Pune. The car will remain the same in terms of design but, the engine will be different. It is likely to get a 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine that will generate 90 Ps and 200 Nm of torque. Tata might also introduce an electric version of the Tata Punch in future. The price for Tata Punch SUV starts at Rs 5.48 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 9.08 lakh, ex-showroom.
