Recently, the latest pictures of the vehicle were released online and reveal many design traits of the Micro-SUV.

A major contributor to the SUV-like stance is the presence of a tall and upright front end. From a design perspective, the upcoming Tata Punch looks more like a shrunken and chiselled Tata Harrier and looks very premium.

On the inside, the tata Punch sports a multi-layered dashboard, dashboard-mounted infotainment, large rectangular air-con vents, decent sized boot, diamond-cut alloy wheels and many more.

Though the new Tata Punch is a sub-4-metre SUV and positioned as a Micro-SUV, it looks as if Tata Punch will offer a lot more interior space than its dimensions suggest.

Apart from this, the upcoming Tata Punch is a tad smaller than the Tata Nexon SUV and will go up against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ignis and Mahindra KUV100.

Tata Punch is also the first SUV in Tata Motors product portfolio to be built on the ALFA-ARC (Agile Light Flexible Advanced Architecture) platform.

We already know that Tata Motors makes one of the safest cars in India, it is safe to say that the upcoming Tata Punch will also follow high safety standards with safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seats and a few more.

There is also a possibility that Tata motors may offer the more potent 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 108Bhp and 140Nm of torque from the Tata Altroz.

Thoughts About Tata Punch AMT & ‘Traction Pro' Mode

The lack of automatic transmission on offer has somewhat limited the Tata Altroz from achieving its maximum possible sales numbers. Tata Motors has decided not to commit the same mistake and the upcoming Tata Punch will be offered with an AMT automatic gearbox.

Moreover, the ‘Traction pro' mode will give Tata Punch an added advantage over its rivals by making it slightly more capable off-road.
