Tata Punch diesel spotted

It looks like Tata is testing and planning to launch a diesel powertrain with the SUV.

A Tata Punch was spotted filling up diesel at a petrol pump in Pune. It looks like Tata is testing and planning to launch a diesel powertrain with the SUV.

At present, 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. Tata could also introduce a turbo petrol engine at a later date.

The Tata Punch is based on the Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) Architecture. The diesel and the turbo petrol engines could be shared with the Altroz.
