Tata Punch First Drive

Both these cars are well-equipped when it comes to comfort, convenience and safety features. Considering the customer requirements, both the cars get an infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (Swift gets a larger 9-inch screen), reverse parking camera with sensors, automatic climate control system, keyless entry with push-button start/stop, cruise control and connected-car tech. The Tata Punch misses out on a wireless phone charger, but is equipped with a sunroof, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and a part-digital driver’s display which the Swift misses out on. The Swift even misses out on armrests for the front seats. 

Safety features in the Swift encompasses six airbags, ESP, hill-hold assist and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard across the variants, while the Punch only gets 2 front airbags as standard.
