In case you are wondering what the Tata Punch Dark Edition might look like, here is a clear rendering. The micro-SUV is about to make its debut in our market soon. Tata had officially announced the arrival of this new SUV in its portfolio. We expect it to hit the showrooms around the festive season this year. Tata has already been doing some great sales for the last few months and another product in a growing segment is most likely to boost those sales figures even further. SRK Designs, an automobile designer and enthusiast, came up with this Dark Edition edition of the Tata Punch and we shall dissect the details of the project here.
Tata Punch Dark Edition
There have been plenty of changes done to make it a worthy Dark Edition product. To start off, the entire body paint scheme has been dyed jet black with glossy bits overall. The front end wears the Nexon grille with pride along with the Harrier-inspired split headlamp design with LED DRLs on the bonnet and headlights on the bumper. The grille is surrounded by a chrome frame which gives a great contrast to the otherwise black outlook. The bumper design has been kept in a matte finish to give some character and contrasting detailing to the front. The fog lamps are housed on either side of the bumper. The windows are also tainted black to fit the design theme.
The dual-tone stylish alloy wheels go well with the black exteriors. The wing mirrors are painted black too. On the sides, the body cladding and wheel arches cladding are finished in the same matte black finish as the front bumper. The A, B and C Pillars are black as well to complete the Black Edition silhouette in this special version of the Tata Punch. With Tata launching almost all of their popular products in the Black Edition, something like this might not be completely unrealistic and we might have this on our market soon after the official launch of the Punch.
The expected engine options might include a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine making 86 hp. There might well be turbo petrol on offer as well. This engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AMT gearbox. The expected prices of the Tata HBX are likely to be in the region of Rs 4 lakh to Rs 8 lakh, ex-showroom. It will rival the likes of Maruti Ignis, S-Presso and Renault Kwid.
