Tata Punch is all set to get unveiled officially on 4th October. The new micro-SUV has already started reaching dealerships. Here, is a video in which we can see a walkaround of the Punch. The host shows us the exterior as well as the interior of the new micro-SUV. The video is uploaded on YouTube by CARR INFO.
The video shows us a Punch in the shade of blue which is the official launch colour of the micro-SUV. It is a dual-tone paint scheme so the roof, pillars and wing mirrors are finished in black. It seems like Punch will come with follow-me-home headlamps because the LED Daytime Running Lamp strips and the headlamps are turned on. The outside rearview mirrors also fold automatically when the Punch is unlocked.
We can also see the halogen projector set up in the headlamp. The turn indicators also turn on for a brief moment and we can see that they are situated with the Daytime Running Lamp. There is also Tata’s humanity line finished in chrome. To some people, the front of Punch might remind of the Harrier.
Then the host shows us the side profile of the micro-SUV. We can see a thick plastic cladding that runs throughout the length of the car. There are squared-off wheel arches and an overall boxy design. There are diamond-cut alloy wheels, roof rails and a regular antenna.
At the rear, Punch is spelt out in the centre of the tailgate. There is also a rear parking camera hidden beneath the Tata logo. There is a thick black bumper with reflectors and the tail lamps also get a tri-arrow element in them. Moreover, you get a high mounted stop lamp and a rear wiper with a washer.
In the video, we can also see the boot of the Punch but we do not know how much does it measure. Then the host climbs inside the car. There is a push button to start/stop, cruise control, multi-function steering wheel and part digital instrument cluster with analogue speedometer. The floating infotainment system should come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The dashboard is finished in a dual-tone theme of black and white. The same theme is continued on the door pads as well. The upholstery is black in colour. The air conditioning vents get a silver surround and there is an automatic climate control system as well. It looks like all four headrests will be adjustable. It does come with electrical adjustment for the outside rearview mirrors and power windows. There is also a light in the cooled glovebox.
We can see that the vehicle in the video was equipped with a manual gearbox. There will also be a 5-speed AMT on offer. The engine that Tata Motors will use will be a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that puts out 86 PS of max power and 115 Nm of peak torque. This is the same engine that is doing duty on Tata Tigor, Tiago and Altroz.
