Tata Punch Could Be The Most Affordable Car With A 5-Star GNCAP Rating

The Punch is based on the same ALFA arc platform as the Altroz, which also secured five stars in the Global NCAP safety tests


  • Tata Punch gets dual airbags, ISOFIX, and parking sensors as standard.
  • Powered by a 1.2-litre NA petrol engine, paired with 5-speed MT and AMT options.
  • Prices to be announced on October 20.

A leaked screenshot from the Tata Punch bookling portal (info now taken down by the carmaker) suggests the micro SUV could be a 5-star GNCAP offering. It is based on the same ALFA arc platform as the Altroz, which also secured five stars in the Global NCAP safety tests. And if the latest development is true, it would make the Punch the most affordable offering with a 5-star GNCAP rating.


The Punch gets dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat mounts, and a parking camera. The first four are offered as standard across all variants. A unique safety feature, also standard, is Brake Sway Control, which keeps the vehicle in control under hard braking. 


Other features include a 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, a semi-digital instrument cluster, City and Eco drive modes, cruise control, and auto headlamps and wipers. 


The Punch is powered by an 86PS 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, paired with 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT options. Going forward, the micro SUV could also get an all-electric powertrain and a turbo-petrol engine.


Bookings for the Tata Punch are underway on the carmaker’s website, and you can reserve yours from your nearest dealership as well. Test drives have begun as well.

The Punch will likely be priced from Rs 5.5 lakh (ex-showroom), putting it in the same league as the Maruti Suzuki Ignis and Mahindra KUV100 Nxt.
