Speaking about the Tata Punch, the micro-SUV from Tata Motors is one of the safest SUVs in India with a 5-star safety rating for adult protection from G-NCAP. Looking into the numbers, the Tata Punch scored 16.45 points out of 17 points in the G-NCAP crash testing.

The Tata Punch is powered by a 3-cylinder, 1.2L naturally-aspirated, Revotron petrol engine with ‘Dynapro Technology'. This engine produces 84.48bhp of peak power at 6,000rpm and 113Nm of peak torque at 3,300rpm.
