Finally, brought home Punch Creative MT.

Initial impressions good.

Colors of choice were White or Grey, however settled for Grey.

Showroom experience was excellent. All the processes were smooth and well managed by the dealership staff.

Will update along with pictures after driving few hundred kilometers.

Our friendly neighborhood AutoSpy recently came across a Tata Punch test mule filling up diesel, with a Harrier mule in tow, on the streets of Pune.

So, interesting times ahead.

Maybe this was the punch that the sales person filled with diesel instead of petrol

Diesel has been the traditional strength of Tata & Mahindra.

However, it would be great if you can get a confirmation on the diesel part. Reason: many a bunk has petrol and diesel pumps on the outer filling lane, to help larger petrol SUV's and also reduce congestion in inner lanes at the bunk.

No it isn't.

AutoSpy snapped this pic himself earlier today. As per him, the Punch test mule followed the Harrier mule closely to top up at the diesel pump machine.

But still, to be absolutely sure that it topped up on diesel, I have asked him for re-clarification.

I don't think so. News of filling up diesel in Punch came out recently, however the car on truck shown in picture surfaced online around mid September.

Followed a blue one briefly today. Was bowled over by the rear and the front in my mirrors. Looked totally modern without being overdone, and a perfect size and height for BLR traffic.

I hope it's a stunning success. Imagine, if I (middle aged) liked it, a huge number of Gen X & Y are going to love it

Tata Punch waiting period increases to 8 months

The waiting period for the Tata Punch was around 4 months at the beginning of this month. Now, reports suggest that deliveries of certain variants could take up to 8 months.

Tata Punch Review-tatapunchwaitingperiodnov2021.jpg

According to a leaked document, the waiting period for the Punch ranges from 6 weeks to 36 weeks. Customers who have booked the top-spec Creative variant will have to wait for at least 6 weeks, while the expected billing date for Pure and Pure Rhythm variants is up to 36 weeks and 24 weeks respectively.

The Punch is available in four variants - Pure, Adventure, Accomplished and Creative, with prices starting at Rs. 5.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Tata Punch is based on the Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) Architecture. The crossover is powered by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine featuring an automatic engine start / stop function, as well as two drive modes - City and Eco. The engine puts out 85 BHP and 113 Nm and is mated to either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AMT.

Seems to be a clear case of Tata prioritizing the production of top end / more profitable) variants over the budget variants. Or it could even be TML Marketing team efforts to create more demand for the higher variants.

Either way, good to see the demand for the Punch and hope Tata does not start a cost cutting exercise soon as it did after the Tiago's launch.

Tata Punch Creative AMT Tropical Mist
Booked at: Siva Sankar Motors, Vizianagaram.
No update from the dealership, so called up another dealership on 18th and they had around 20 Creative MT iRa in stock. They had 3 Tropical Mist in stock, immediately booked one and got delivery today.

Purchased Extended warranty(2+3) at 19.6k, P2P for 4 years/60k at 9.9k and Body cover for 2.1k.

Informed previous dealer to cancel booking only after getting the car. I believe they put an order to the company on 25th October even though I made a pre booking on 30th September.

Had a quick look over of the Punch at the local Tata showroom. Brief observations:
  • The car looks a million bucks. It's pretty difficult to fault any design line.
  • The paint looks deep an lustrous. I saw the blue one with the whilte roof. Stunning.
  • Interiors look very European with very linear lines.
  • Space was good. Sitting in the Nexon I did not feel that the Nexon was so much wider than the Punch.
  • I felt pricewise the Nexon XM is a good comparison to the top end Punch. you get a turbo petrol engine and bit more space.
  • The texture of the plastic on the dashboard and door pads somehow looked cheap.
  • Out of the corner of my eye I spotted a tuft of fabric of the roof liner stick out of the corner. Not great if it catches your eye so easily.
  • The welds around the rear hatch looked crude and unfinished..
  • The point at which the taillamps meet the body is lined with a crude rubber lining. The plastic piece used in the Celerio looked so much more finished.
  • I don't like the exposed tops of the shocks in the boot. I feel that this should be covered up like in the Baleno or the Celerio.

Drive on,
Shibu.

Celerio amr used to give 15-16 in Bangalore City. Punch should be on similar lines if tata hasn't screwed up
Apparently, Punch is much more heavier than Celerio, too, which could be a boon as well as bane. Without change in momentum, the FE should be comparable but since you are talking about City driving, it may not be possible.

Congratulations on your Punch. The availability of Punch at the dealerships is not understandable. The one with whom I first booked it don't have any. Then I managed to get the car from another dealership which had few Punches at their showroom at the time when I took delivery.
