Here is one of the coolest and most rugged off-road concept editions of the Tata Punch. The recently unveiled Punch is catered towards fulfilling the growing trend of SUVs in the country. Punch finds itself in the heart of the micro SUV segment which is the entry-level SUV space in our market. Owing to its rugged build quality, practicality and utilitarian aspects, it will attract customers from the semi-urban and rural pockets of the population. Many of the potential customers could also be first-time car buyers. Punch has the potential to sway the crowd away from the adjacent segments as well. The automobile digital designer, Zephyr_Designz has come up with a rather extreme off-road concept of the Punch. Let us unpack the details of this version.
Tata Punch Off-Road Concept
The image clearly showcases the Punch in this concept version in its full glory. The most prominent aspect is the front fascia. The entire bumper has been chopped off. Instead, a rod is attached as protective equipment. The Hella lights are mounted atop it. The army/green colour goes well with the environments this Punch will likely find itself in. The pronounced wheel arches are filled with ultra-wide and high-profile off-roading tyres. These are tyres will ensure that you don’t feel the undulations of the off-roading tracks. The muscular LED lighting on the roof also gives the Punch that rugged character that we find in hardcore off-roading machines. The spare wheel mounted on the bootlid is also visible in the image just a little bit. All in all, this off-road concept of the Tata Punch may appear to a whole bunch of people.
Powering the Tata Punch is a Tiago-sourced 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that is also available on the Altroz as well as the Tigor. This motor outputs 86 hp. Transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT. The expected prices might range between Rs 5 lakh to Rs 8 lakh, ex-showroom. The direct rivals include the Maruti Ignis and the upcoming Hyundai Casper. It might also take away the customers of Renault Kwid, Hyundai Santro and Maruti S-Presso.
