Powering Punch is a familiar 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that also powers Altroz, Tiago and Tigor. This motor generates 85 bhp and 113 Nm of peak torque and sends power to the front wheels either via a five-speed manual gearbox or an AMT unit. It gets two drive modes- City and Eco. Tata Motors has marketed Punch as a micro SUV capable of off-roading. Its 187mm ground clearance comes in handy in that case.
The company offers Punch in seven colour options including Orcus White, Daytona Grey, Tropical Mist, Atomic Orange, Meteor Bronze, Tornado Blue, and Calypso Red. It rivals other micro UVs such as Mahindra KUV100 and Maruti Ignis as well as subcompact SUVs such as Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite.
