Whether you opt for the manual or AMT variant, you can expect similar fuel efficiency. The Punch also features a generous 37-litre fuel tank capacity, making it one of the largest in its segment³. This means that the Tata Punch can take you quite a distance on a single tank.
While the official top speed of the Tata Punch hasn’t been announced, it’s estimated to range between 160 kmph to 170 kmph. The Punch’s acceleration is also impressive, reaching 0 to 100 kmph in approximately 13 to 14 seconds. Its smooth and stable handling can be attributed to its Alfa architecture.
