Tata Punch 2024: Positives and Negatives Explained for Car Buyer


Here is Detail of Tata Punch 2024 as what can be expected for Buyers in terms of Punch Manual, AMT with Top 5 Positives and Negatives Explained


Tata Punch 2024 Positives and Negatives

Here are details of Tata Punch 2024 if considering to buy


  • Engine - 1.2 Litre, 3 Cylinder with 86 BHP and 115 NM Torque
  • Length - 3827 mm
  • Width - 1742 mm
  • Height - 1615 mm
  • Ground Clearance - 187 mm
  • Fuel Tank - 37 Litre
  • Boot Space - 366 Litre


Tata Punch 2024 Positives

Buiild, Safety: Biggest USP of Tata Punch 2024 is Inspired 5 Star Build and proven 5 Star Safety Rating as seen in Global NCAP. There is no doubt that Punch is Safe but still features like ESP (in Manual Transmission) and Side and Curtain Airbags is definite missed.

Tata should have raised the game with 6 Airbags in Punch - but is surely missed



Road Presence, Styling: Indeed Punch Road Presence and Styling with SUV Kind inspired looks, raised ground clearance, 15 Inch Wheels along with Dual Tone Interiors all gives a feel of elegant looking Small Car. Tata Styling part is definite a gamer changer


SUV Tag Factor: Tata Calls Punch as 'No Compromise SUV'. Although is a farce to call a car with 1.2 Litre 3 cylinder engine with just 86 BHP Power as SUV but definition of SUV is changed among car buyers due to fake marketing campaigns of calling a Raised Grond Clearance car a SUV

Still Punch has approach angle, departure angle of SUV and 187 mm ground clearance and do match in aspiration of buyers looking fir Budget SUV


Easy Ingress, Egress: One of the biggest USP of Punch is Easy Ingress and Egress. For Senior Members - would find it absolute easy to enter and come of out cabin. Will rate Punch Egress and Ingress as 2nd Best (after Maruti Wagon R) among Passenger Cars in Indian Market. Floor is at comfortable height and for those with orthopaedic problem do not need to bend at all to enter or come out of car.


Ride, Handling: Suspension and Steering is also tuned in New Punch and can confirm to you that overall Ride, Handling with Mature Suspension (although marginally on stiffer side to prevent body roll for a tall design car) can give in decent ride and handling experience for day to day city use. However yes at higher speed or corners - body roll is felt in car.



Tata Punch 2024 Negatives

Engine Performance and NVH: Let me tell you that Punch 1.2 Litre Engine feels significantly improved in BS6 Phase 2 as against the BS6 Phase 1 era. Engine Noise and Harshness is significantly reduced as against BS6 Phase 1 but again if you compare against the cars like

  • Maruti Swift, Fronx
  • Maruti Ignis

in Ignis, Fronx as 4 cylinder or even new Swift Z Series Engine which is 3 cylinder. Despite of 86 BHP Power - biggest reason of Punch underpowered nature feels due to higher kerb weight of 1000 Kg as against Maruti Cars having better tune up and lesser kerb weight.

Additionally - Punch Pickup feels mediocre post 60 Kmph speed and Engine Noise, Vibrations still feels higher in both idling and at 80+ speed with much more noise and harshness to it


Brakes: Although Punch comes with ABS, EBD but Braking and Brake Bite is definite a negative of Punch 2024. The brakes do feel spongy with a vague bite point at times and do not inspire confidence as such as seen in even Maruti, Hyundai Cars.

On Sudden Braking Force - although car stops without much drama but indeed the brake bite feels a bit miss


Fit and Finish: Pls dont confuse Fit and Finish with Build of Car, Punch is a 5 Star Build Car. Here referring in specific to be inconsistencies in terms of Panel gaps in between the body Panels. Also, the plastics are prone to scratches. On  Short to Medium term these Panel Gaps can cause rattles and indeed scratches can look eye sore.


AMT Responsiveness: AMT feels slow to respond atleast in creep and initial speed. Somehow the pickup response of Punch AMT is no where close to tune up done by Maruti AMT, Hyundai AMT or smooth CVT Transmission as seen in Magnite Turbo CVT, Kiger Turbo CVT, I20 or Amaze.


Headroom Space for Taller Passenger in Rear: Limited Space for Taller Passenger on Rear Seat. If you are Tall and has taller members to sit on Rear Seat or Sikh Community will find Rear Seat headroom a bit challenge.


Cabin Insulation: Cabin definite experience in higher wind noise, Tyre Noise especially when you driving post 80 Kmph speed - insulation feels medicore and much more noisier as against competition Maruti, Hyundai or Honda too


Punch Touchscreen System: Although Punch Sound Clarity is great, but this 7 Inch infotainment system feels not as fluid and responsive in Punch. There appears a lag and do not justify in price premium as what required for Punch Accomplished or Creative Model
