Tata has been on a roll with the teasers of its upcoming Punch. Tata already gave us a first look at the exteriors of the Punch which stayed true to its concept form. Tata has now revealed the interiors of the Punch which gives us a fair idea of what we can expect from the upcoming micro-SUV. Let’s take a look at all the key details in the of the Punch:
On the first look, it is clearly evident that the interiors have stayed true to the HBX concept just like the exteriors. It gets a dual-t0ne black and white dashboard. It gets rectangle A/C vents which gets blue surrounds. The steering wheel is a flat bottom unit that gets audio, telephone and cruise control buttons. The Punch borrows the semi-digital instrument cluster from the Altroz. The centre stage is taken up by the Harman developed touchscreen infotainment system which will be compatible with android auto and apple car play. Other details include automatic climate control, push-button start/stop and electrically adjustable mirrors.
The new Tata Punch follows the Impact 2.0 design language that underpins all the new-age Tata cars. The headlamp cluster and the dual-purpose LED DRLs remind us of the Harrier and Safari, giving the feeling that the Punch belongs to the same SUV family. It has strong rugged design cues on the exterior in the form of a body cladding that surrounds the front and sides all the way to the back of the SUV. The headlamps are projectors; however, we don’t know if it’s the Xenon unit from the Harrier and Safari or just a normal halogen set. We can also see roof rails that we expect to be functional as shown on the H2X concept.
The Punch will share its powertrains with the Altroz. It will most likely feature petrol engines only like the naturally aspirated 1.2-litre, 3 cylinder engine which produces 86Hp and 114Nm of torque. Transmission duties will be taken care of by a 5-speed manual and an AMT. The HBX could also feature a turbocharged version of the same engine which produces 110Hp and 140Nm of torque via a 5-speed manual transmission in the Altroz.
