Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

Maruti Alto

  • Now all variants have dual airbags as an option. Future ready BS6 compliant engine. You just can't beat the Maruti service network.

Tata Punch

  • The Punch pulls off muscular SUV-like looks
  • high ground clearance along with an easy to drive hatchback -like experience. Impressive cabin quality
  • clever customization options make it even more appealing. It is a sensible package that focuses on useful equipment like auto headlamps and wipers
  • electric folding wing mirrors
  • cruise control and connected car tech highlight a sensible features list. 5-star Global NCAP safety rating.

Maruti Alto

  • Still no touchscreen infotainment system. No AMT option. Base variant misses essentials like power steering and air conditioning.

Tata Punch

  • No diesel engine option. The 1.2L engine
  • although good for commuting
  • lacks the power for ease of use on highway or when fully loaded. 16.5 seconds for 0-100kmph (claimed) isn't inspiring.

Q. In Alto 800, which variant is powerful with AC or without AC
  • All have powerful a/c ..depends on using it.cabin is small so more cooling.don't put fan all the time .set between 2 and 3 if it is hot inside. zzdown mirrors a little bit so that warm sir goes out.Then you can maintain it on 1 and 2.Use blower fan if it's too humid.Smart adjustment of vents is another trick.try to park the car in shades. Refill ac .,regular check up during services makes it better.
  • Take a/c because in A/c car while designing some rotational balance to counter the act of comppressor.it increase some benefit in torque. And in re-sale value also it experience.
  • I keep going with AC in1 position. We can feel the cool in no time. I tried for long run at a speed of 100 km. Very comfortable. I am regular in servicing the car.

    Tata punch will be a very feature rich car.Tata should pack the punch with features such as a 7-inch touchscreen system, A semi-digital instrument cluster, Automatic air conditioning, Steering-mounted audio controls, Keyless entry with push-button start, And all four power windows.Safety should be taken care of by dual front airbags, Abs with ebd, And rear parking sensors with camera.With all the features it would be a must buy for me as i am looking for a car.

  • 5.0

    Tata punch 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.We can also see roof rails that we expect to be functional as shown on the h2x concept.

  • 5.0

    Tata punch will get a 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.

  • 5.0

    It's the best value for money car in the segment. You can get a top model with all top-notch features with a 5-star GNCAP rating in just under 10lac, which none other manufacturers offer. This car is far better than hatchback segment cars and has some compact SUVs like Venue, Sonet, Magnite, Kiger, Breeza, etc.

  • 5.0

    I am very much impressed with the specs of the car.The tata punch will be powered by an 86ps/113nm 1.2-litre petrol engine (from the altroz).It should be offered with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed amt.It could also come with an all-electric powertrain at a later stage.With the increasing fuel prices i will look for ev option.

    Not satisfied with the 999cc kwid automatic variant.I brought it assuming it be a descent buy at this price range.But it did not turn out the way expected.Cabin noise, Vibration is high.Pickup is low.Actual mmileage is lower than the claimed figure.Manual might be a better option.

  • 5.0
