Tata has launched the Punch SUV in India. The car comes in at Rs 5.4 lakh for the base Pure variant with manual transmission and Rs 8.49 lakh for the top rung Creative variant (all prices ex-showroom). For now, the Tata Punch will have competition in the form of long-forgotten Mahindra KUV100. However, the real competition will be indirect rivals like Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Baleno, and Hyundai i20.

The Tata Punch is available in four trims – Pure, Adventure, Accomplished and Creative. Given below are the variant-wise prices for the new Tata Punch.

  • Powered by 86hp, 1.2-liter petrol engine
  • It packs a lengthy features list
  • Rivals the Maruti Ignis and Mahindra KUV100 NXT
Variant Manual AMT
Pure Rs 5.49 lakh
Adventure Rs 6.39 lakh Rs 6.99 lakh
Accomplished Rs 7.29 lakh Rs 7.89 lakh
Creative Rs 8.49 lakh Rs 9.09 lakh


The earlier released image of the Punch by the company gave a clear insight into how to car will look from outside. It was also revealed that the car will be based on the Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) platform and is wrapped up in a black body cladding giving it reinforced protection. The Tata Punch carries over the H2X concept’s upright stance, beefy front end, and muscular wheel arches – elements that will surely attract the SUV-loving crowd. While it’s not a proper SUV and instead of a beefed-up hatchback, the SUV frenzy market of India will surely get an impetus in the affordable SUV space.

Under the hood, the new Tata Punch comes with a BS6 1.2-litre Revotron petrol engine with Dyna-Pro technology that develops 86bhp and 113Nm of peak torque, coupled to both 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT units. The Tata Punch is offered in four variants- Pure, Adventure, Accomplished and Creative.

Safety is paramount for Tata Motors and so have offered the Punch with dual airbags, ABS with EBD and corner safety control, brake sway control, front fog lamp with cornering function, child seat Isofix anchor points, parametric alarm system, reverse parking camera, driver & co-driver seat belt reminders, and tire puncture repair kit. The new Punch is also connected with the company’s IRA technology.
