Within a week of unveiling the name and front look of the new Tata Punch, Tata motors have now given a preview of how the rear profile of the new micro-SUV will look like in real. The manufacturer has revealed a rear three-quarter image of the new Punch, which bears a close resemblance to the HBX concept displayed at Auto Expo 2020..
Rear profile of Punch
The new Tata Punch has small LED tail lamps placed at the side edges of the boot lid, which come integrated with a Y-shaped LED insert. This is in line with the Y-shaped motifs, which are present not only in the front bumper of the Punch but can be seen in other Tata Motors cars as well. The boot lid has a clean look with an X-shaped sharp crease flowing across its width, which somehow looks inspired by the rear profile of the Nexon SUV.
The rear bumper gets thick black cladding, which along with the side body moulding, gives the Tata Punch a tough-looking stance. As previewed in the erstwhile image, the Punch will be riding on machined alloy wheels.
Other highlights of the Tata Punch visible in the new rear three-quarter image are roof rails and rear door handles recessed in a blacked-out C-pillar. The blacked-out A and C pillars give the Punch a floating roof design, which again looks inspired by the Nexon.
It also gets blocked housings for the rear reflectors on the sides of the rear bumper and an LED stop lamp mounted in the middle of the roof spoiler. Other expected details As shown in the previous image, the Tata Punch will be getting sleek daytime running LEDs and low-mounted projector headlamps, which sources inspiration from the front fascia of the Tata Harrier.
Interesting cabin design expected
While Tata Motors hasn’t revealed the interior of the Tata Punch, it is expected to retain the cabin layout of the HBX concept. It means that the Punch will get a part-digital instrument console and a floating 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, much similar to what we have already seen in the Tata Altroz.
Other features that are expected to make their way in the final production model are the push start-stop button, automatic climate control and multi-functional flat-bottom steering wheel. It is believed that the Tata Punch too will have the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine as its other siblings like Tiago, Tigor and Altroz. Expected to be offered with both 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT, this engine makes 86 bhp of maximum power and 113 Nm of maximum torque.
