Tata Motors recently launched the all-new Punch at a price of Rs 5.49 lakh, ex-showroom. Without revealing the data on the bookings, Tata did mention that they have received one of the highest bookings ever on the Punch. Tata has now released a new promotional video with the official anthem of the Punch.
The new Tata Punch TVC shows the vehicle on different terrains and in different parts of the country. The all-new Tata Punch is the most capable vehicle in the segment. The Punch takes on the Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the Mahindra KUV100 NXT according to the positioning of the vehicle as a sub-compact micro SUV in the market.
The all-new Tata Punch is aimed at the youngsters primarily who want to own an SUV but do not want to spend much of the vehicle or don’t have a big budget. The Tata Punch is designed to look as much like an SUV as possible. It gets a muscular look with body cladding all around. The front-end design inspired by the Harrier and the Safari definitely makes it look imposing on the roads.
It is also the biggest car in its segment. However, the height of the Tata Punch is slightly shorter than the KUV100. Overall, the Punch stands out on the roads.
