The Punch is a great product for such people. Now that Tata has started delivering the Punch, we have the first ownership review of the Tata Punch by the owner himself.
Ownership Review Tata Punch
The owner has driven the car for about 400-odd km in around 13 days. This is therefore a brief duration but he is qualified to tell us about the peculiarities of living with the Punch for almost 2 weeks. He starts by mentioning that he needed a car primarily for a city commute. The small size of the Punch is especially apt for this purpose. The looks, high ground clearance, safety ratings, practicality, luggage compartment are some of the other features why going for the Punch is a good idea. The clutch is light which is a boon in city traffic. He also explains that the sales experience at the Tata dealership was terrific. There is plenty of news about not so great service experience of many people at Tata dealerships.
On the other hand, he points out some negatives of the micro SUV as well. This includes things like plastic quality on the interiors of the Punch is not great, there are plenty of panel gaps around the dashboard and on the outside, the plastics get white on the dashboard and one the body cladding outside, the cabin light switch is a bit flimsy to use, the knee could hit the dashboard while driving if the driver has a good height. The main issue for a whole lot of people could be the not too impressive mileage and an underpowered engine. The owner mentions that he has got a maximum mileage of around 12 km/l in the city. Also, when he goes past 70 km/h, he feels that the power is not there to accelerate convincingly. These are some of the pros and cons of the Tata Punch explained by an owner.
