Tata Punch Coin and Water Bottle Test – Will it Pass?

Tata Punch comes with a 3-cylinder engine which generally produces more vibrations that a 4-cylinder unit.

In this video, the YouTuber puts the Tata Punch through the coin test to check the vibration of the micro-SUV. Punch is a popular product in our market. Owing to its full 5-star safety rating at the GNCAP, SUV-ish silhouette and modern tech features, people have taken a strong liking to it leading to impressive sales. However, there is a typical vibration associated with 3-cylinder engines which are becoming more common these days.

Tata Punch Coin Test

The video has been uploaded by Sumanta Biswas on his YouTube channel. He decides to perform the coin and water bottle test to check the vibration levels inside the cabin of the Punch. In order to do that, he places a Rs 10 coin on the gear lever. Then, he starts the engine. Due to the initial jerk, the coin falls onto the side. However, he places it once again on the gear lever as the car is kept switched ON. The coin stays at its place this time around. This proves that the jerk is felt only during ignition. Apart from that, the vibrations are well-contained.

Thereafter, the Punch owner keeps a half-filled water bottle on the dashboard. He switches the car ON again and there is hardly any shock felt to the water bottle. It remains in its place. This, again, proves that Tata Motors has done a great job in containing the vibrations inside the cabin. Finally, the YouTuber opens the bonnet and makes the viewers hear the sound of the 3-cylinder mill. There is an insulation panel installed underneath the bonnet to prevent the noise from seeping through into the cabin.
