Thank you for your feedback. I too did not feel any head nod issue, but felt bit of a body roll even in low speed. Seats felt comfortable.
Adventure variant there is no driver seat height adjustment. For any car with fixed height, will the height be set to the top position ? To be driven by my wife who is 5 feet tall.
For smaller cars, is the rear wiper necessary or can we manage without it?
Is the 7 inch touch screen worth the spend for 45 K ?

Myself a proud Tiago owner (first gen XZ 2016) convinced family to go for Tata rather than our very own mileage and service oriented Hyundai, Maruti.
However just a concern remains. Is the 9.65 L onroad price tag justified?
Any other options I should have considered (dealer offers 100% refund for cancellation before shipment )
Punch Accomplished is a very good choice, considering the 4 variants. But is the Dazzle pack really worth the extra 50 K, for alloys and day time running light with projector headlamp. The spare wheel provided is 15 inches and if it is same as the other 4 tyres, then you can rotate the tyres equally and can extend the tyre change duration by another 10 K to 15K kms. I have a downsized spare for my polo and have not used it till date, but have already replaced the tyre sets 2 times.

Autocar has tested real world fuel efficiency of the Tata Punch

Tata Punch Review-imageresizer.jpeg.jpg

I feel it is a bit low compared to the others in the segment. Even 1.0 turbo petrols give better numbers than that. Or have the Autocar people been really aggressive with their driving!? Punch owners in this forum have to step in with their actual fuel efficiency numbers (not the MID figures please)

Given the lack of punch and refinement in the Tata's 1.2 N/A, it is the only Achilles heel of Tata Punch.

The car looks superb nevertheless. Has the best road presence in its segment.

I assume the turbo petrol's you are referring to feature direct injection as well. Combine these two and engine response is much better compared to the NA Fuel injected mill, which is the Punch engine. The torque output is also weak, building a peak as late as 3000+ rpm. You work an engine with such figures and fuel economy will not be that great. 3000rpm at the ton is also pretty high. I am sure a 1.0 direct injection Turbo with better defined gear ratios may sit at 2200 - 2400rpm, which will aid economy.

The data set needs to be bigger too. Perhaps FM's who own a Punch can report real world readings and we can build on that. I don't expect it to be too different.

My AMT Punch delivers 11-12 in heavy city traffic and 18 in highway. If I use economy mode and keep speeds of 80, it goes upto 20. But yes, engine is neither refined or Punchy.

For PUNCH MT this is the mileage that I’m getting:
Tata Punch Review-3ed9562e8e744c22b429aa268e25c04d.png

Factors:
  1. New to driving
  2. City 80 Highway 20
  3. AC on all the time
  4. CITY mode all the time

When I manually calculate I’m getting different numbers, but it is less. Infotainment always shows 14-17kmpl.

Thank you for sharing!

Your numbers are on par with Autocar's numbers. So, a realistic figure is about 10 kmph if one is going to be driving within city traffic. Gosh! That is what my 156 PS storme returns in same conditions, and hey, diesel is 10 rupees cheaper.

Don't trust Tata MIDs, they are over optimistic

I believe your car's figure would improve (slightly though) if it has run in a few thousand kilometers more.

@Sandeepmohan,

100 kmph at 3000 rpm?! That seems unusually high. I believe the highway fuel efficiency would have been substantially more if Punch had the 1.2 turbo mated to that 6 speed MT gear box. Well, Tata did not give it in Altroz, and they are not going to do it for Punch too.

Honestly, this fuel efficiency will be a deal breaker for many.

@PrasannaDhana

The rpm figure I quoted is from this review. Yes, it is high.
The Punch isn't exactly a wind cutter too. I imagine coefficient drag is on the higher side.

No, a rear wiper is not compulsory and one can manage without it. But having said that a rear wiper definitely helps keep the rear windscreen clean especially on the highways

Again, NO the 45K spend on the touch screen increment aint worth IMO

Loved that snip at 0:21 -0:23. Rather than having the car come towards you, they have given a different view.

Having completed the run in period of 2000kms in all traffic conditions from Bumper to Bumper Traffic , Single laned roads two laned highways the mileage I am getting with AC on in Creative MT model in city is 13km and on Highways 20 km.

These have been obtained not on basis of MID Readings but on Tank to Tank method.

Tata Punch CNG spotted testing

A camouflaged test mule of the Tata Punch has been spotted in Tamil Nadu. Reports suggest that it could be the CNG version of the sub-4m SUV.

Tata Punch Review-tatapunchcngtiagocng1280x640.jpg

The Punch CNG is expected to be powered by the same 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 85 BHP and 113 Nm, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The overall output is expected to lower when running on CNG.

Tata is also rumoured to be working on a diesel version of the Punch. A turbo-petrol version of the car is also said to be in the works.

The Punch CNG is expected to join the likes of the Tiago CNG and Tigor CNG in Tata's product line-up.

I saw this in Bangalore. Looks like it's the same car.
