Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

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.

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.

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am planning to buy a car, I am confused on these two model, kindly suggest which one will suit me. I am not a regular user(less city travel), I used to travel only during weekends(long drive). VW Polo Highline Plus or Ford freestyle Titanium Plus.
  • For strictly city drives predominantly, I would go for Polo highline, but for mainly off road drives Ford freestyle will be my choice. Freestyle driving comfort is more, panoramic view is more, but after all Volkswagen is Volkswagen. I hope you understand.
  • Bro I am having VW Polo Highline plus. I am also a user like you so it suits you and the other thing i don't know about ford freestyle But VW polo highline plus is missile.
Q. I am confused between Tata Altroz XZ and Polo TSI Highline. This will be my first car and need car for family of 5 members. Feature wise Altroz is better but engine wise I like Polo. Please suggest which is better?
  • Both Volkswagen Polo and Tata Altroz are good premium hatches and offer a lot to their customers. However, as per your requirements, we'd suggest you to go with the Tata Altroz as the car offers practical and spacious cabin for a family of five. While the Altroz does not manage to set a new standard in the segment, it will fit right into the mix with a long feature list, sharp looks and a comfortable ride. On the other hand, if you value build, drive experience and ride over feature gimmicks and are willing to sacrifice on space, the Polo would be a good fit for you. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Tata Altroz 2019 Petrol & Diesel: First Drive - Volkswagen Polo 1.0 TSI: Road Test Review
  • Altroz were very calm and comfort engine and best build quality engine..on other hand polo were perfomace vehicle..decent space back only 2 menbes can sit comforble..bery strong build quality..hot hatchback..100 percent fun to drive
  • Thank You,Team
Q. I'm confused between Polo, Jazz and Altroz. My major use will be in city and highway once in 2 months. Can some one suggest me which would be better?
  • All these cars are capable enough as per your requirements. If you often drive alone or with passengers only and want a good interior and build quality, you may go for Volkswagen Polo. If you are looking for a spacious and comfortable car for your family and want a refined engine and smooth drive quality, you may go for Honda Jazz. Tata Altroz would be a great pick if safety is your priority and want comfortable ride quality with good looks and a feature list at a price. You may compare all these cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Thank you, I will do that and I appreciate it.

    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.

    Outstanding. Driven almost every hatchback, but found polo is best. People says its service cost is on higher side. I have not found such issues with my polo. And if you have to spent 2 or 3 thousand rupees extra annually.i think its nothing to lose.Build quality of this car ride. Handling.comfort.5 stars. Only con i found is a little noisy. Otherwise go for polo. Best ever mini car for your family.

    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.
