MUMBAI: Tata Motors on Thursday announced its latest offering Punch has received a 5-star rating (16.453) for adult occupant protection and a 4-star rating (40.891) for child occupant protection from Global NCAP.
The Punch is the third car from Tata Motors to receive this recognition after Altroz in January 2020 and Nexon in December 2018. Punch was designed across Tata Motors’ studios in India, UK, and Italy.
The price reveal and launch of Tata Punch is scheduled for October 18. The only engine option available with the Punch is 1.2-litre petrol mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox.
Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicles Business, Tata Motors, said, “SUVs are the ideal solution for Indian customers as they offer a perfect balance of performance, comfort and durability suited for Indian roads. When we were developing the Punch, we were very clear that despite its compact size, we wanted to offer customers a holistic package.”
“The Punch reinforces the four core pillars that define all Tata SUVs- Stunning Design, Versatile and Engaging Performance, Roomy and Spacious Interiors, and Absolute Safety. We are proud to have delivered yet another product that will be regarded as the safest passenger vehicle on Indian roads. This landmark achievement by Tata Motors is also a testament of the fact that the automotive industry in India is capable of delivering the highest global standards of safety in vehicles.”
