If you want to go off-road in your Tata Punch, this is the modified version you would want. Punch has been launched in India at an introductory starting price of Rs 5.49 lakh, ex-showroom. It is a true micro SUV in every sense of the word. It is practical, utilitarian and carries that rugged and muscular persona and silhouette associated with the SUVs. Automobiles enthusiasts have started coming up with modified versions of the micro SUV. This is one great example of practical modifications that could enhance the off-roading capabilities of the Punch. Let us see what this model offers in detail.
Modified Tata Punch Off-road
This modified version of the Punch is not vastly different than its original design. However, there are a few key differences that enhance the off-roading capabilities of the micro SUV significantly. To start with, the high-profile tyres with off-road-oriented treads and rugged alloy wheel design will definitely give you peace of mind if you are stuck on a dirt track. The additional lights on the roof will ensure that no matter how dark it gets outside, you will always have more than enough visibility. It could also be doubled up to set a party rolling. Make sure not to bling the drivers of the oncoming traffic. There is a massive tool kit/luggage compartment box atop the roof to carry the luggage. This enhances the appearance of the micro SUV along with its practicality.

The rear of the Punch also looks off-road ready. The bumper is redesigned with short overhangs to increase the departure angle for off-road scenarios. The width of the tyres is clearly visible from behind. These tyres will not lose traction no matter how difficult it gets. The black side skirting will also prevent small pebbles from damaging or scratching the body of the SUV. With these little modifications, your Punch could transform into a reliable off-roading companion. It already comes with a Traction Pro Mode which could help you get out of a situation where one of the front wheels is stuck. You have to press the brake and accelerator simultaneously to stop the skidding wheel and power the wheel which has traction. This is a great feature to have in a car of this segment. The top trim of the Punch costs Rs 9.09 lakh, ex-showroom with AMT transmission without the customization packs.
