Tata has trickled more information for the ones eagerly waiting the Punch. Official pictures of the dashboard have surfaced online and immediately you’d notice how uncluttered and tidy the dashboard is, especially around the center console area.
Physical buttons seem limited to the air-con controls and fog-lamp activation giving it a neat look. There’s also a dual-tone color scheme that seems to replicate the exterior shade into the cabin.
The touchscreen infotainment system and digital-analogue instrument cluster seem to be borrowed from the Altroz and there are a few premium features on offer, like automatic headlamps and automatic climate control along with a push start/stop button and a chunky flat bottom steering wheel with mounted controls.
The Tata Punch is likely to get both manual and automatic transmission options, and going by the image this seems like the automatic variant. Tata is expected to pack a lot of features, some of them could be segment-first. The carmaker has confirmed that the Punch will offer multiple terrain modes as well as safety features ‘in a bunch’.
Tata Punch micro SUV will be based on the ALFA-ARC (Agile Light Flexible Advanced Architecture). The 2021 Punch micro SUV gets a bold look at the front and the rear with a high stance. It will have LED DRL units flanking the bold-looking pronounced grille and a wide bonnet design. The skid plates will have black claddings and arrow-shaped wrap-around taillights at the rear. The alloy design too looks appealing and the large wheel arches could help it tackle roads less than ideal.
Tata is sure to launch the Punch before Diwali this year. Upon its launch, it will compete against the Maruti Suzuki Ignis as its main rival.
