Last week, Tata Motors confirmed that its all-new Punch micro SUV will be launched during the 2021 holiday season, according to a press release. After all, we know that the festive season will end with Diwali, which falls on November 4th. Select Tata dealers have begun taking reservations for the micro SUV in advance of its official arrival. The booking amount ranges from 5,000 to 21,000, and it is fully refunded if you cancel your reservation. Ignis from Maruti Suzuki and the KUV100 from Mahindra will compete in this segment.

A number of teasers for the Punch mini SUV have been released by the automaker, revealing some interesting details about the vehicle. Sport, City, and Eco are likely to be among the drive modes available on the model. For the first time in its class, it could offer traction modes, hill descent control, and hill start assist. Rock, Mud, Sand, and Snow are all possible traction modes. HBX is the basis for the new Tata small SUV, which features the brand’s new Impact 2.0 design language.

The Mini SUV – Tata Punch

An all-black grille, split headlamps, dual-tone bumper and fog lamps with a black surround adorn the front of the mini SUV. The side profile features squared-off wheel arches, ORVMs in contrast colours, dual-tone alloy wheels, the rear door handles mounted on the C-pillar and black body cladding on the front and rear. As a result, its interior design will likely resemble the concept. The Altroz premium hatchback will share a number of comfort features with the Punch. Mini SUV will offer “absolute safety” according to Tata.

There will be a 1.2L, 3-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol and 1.2L, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol motors under the hood of the new Tata Punch. It will have a peak power of 85bhp and torque of 113Nm, while the latter will have a power output of 100bhp. There will be two transmissions available: a 5-speed manual and an automatic manual transmission (AMT).
