Punch has better technique than the competition

India is exploding with subcompact SUVs – as seen with the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonnet and even the Tata Nexon and Nexon EVs. So, it’s moving forward. It’s ready for the punches, with a new concept. A micro SUV – Tata Punch. The hope here is that it’s packed with technology. Stylishly, the car is quite spartan but gets a hybrid instrument cluster. Half of it is a virtual cluster with great legibility and good-looking graphics, and the other bit has an old-school speedometer. It works quite well but it is a basic solution.

In terms of features, the Punch comes with a 7-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and also gets IRA Connected Car technology

There’s a 7-inch screen that has a decent resolution, but it’s rough and quite laggy to the touch. It’s not a great experience. But at the same time, the system gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, albeit in a wired way which is par for the course.

The system also allows for telematics data and also gets four themes which is a nice change and acts like a wallpaper. Basically, it’s Mickey Mouse technology, but at this price, it’s a robust solution.

It has 6 speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

Tata also offers a full suite of sensors at the back and a parking camera with grid lines. It works decently even in rainy conditions and has made parallel parking quite comfortable.

It has 6 speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Basically, there are 4 full-range speakers and 2 tweeters. It works well with Bollywood and hip hop, although it also works decently well with rock as the system gets a decent mid-range.

Since basically the infotainment system is based on Android, it can also support Android based games but it is not safe if the driver indulges in gaming.

The quality and looks of the plastic used in the Tata Punch is good, and the color palette is smart too, and the cabin has a youthful, fresh design feel.

Tata also offers connected car technology for its IRA stack. IRAs allow basic connected car technology that works pretty decently. Tata has also provided a slew of controls on the steering wheel which gives the user fine control and good tactile feedback.

Tata Punch offers a good balance between technical features and a very affordable price point. At least, the major distinguishing point in my books would be the driving dynamics.
