Tata Motors has confirmed the launch timeline of its upcoming micro SUV Punch, which will take on rivals like Maruti Suzuki Ignis. Replying to one of the users on Twitter, Tata Motors has confirmed that the official launch will happen sometime around Diwali this year.
Tata Motors has said, "Tata Punch, the all-new 5 seater Compact SUV, will be launched in this festive season of 2021." This essentially means that the official launch of Punch will happen before the first week of November, as the festive season ends with Diwali, which is on November 4.

Tata Motors has been actively teasing the new micro SUV for the past few weeks, giving out several details about the Punch ahead of the launch. It has confirmed that the Punch will be packed with a lot of features, some of them being segment-first.
Tata Motors has confirmed that Punch micro SUV will be offered with multiple terrain modes, a feature usually loaded in the cars bigger in size. Tata Motors had also confirmed that Punch will be one of the safest cars to hit the Indian roads with ‘safety features in a bunch’. The Tata cars in recent times have faired impressively in the crash tests conducted by Global NCAP, with Tata Tigor EV being the first electric car from India to score a four-star rating.
Punch is be the first vehicle from the carmaker to be built on ALFA-ARC (Agile Light Flexible Advanced Architecture), developed under Impact 2.0 design language. Unveiled earlier in August, the 2021 Tata Punch micro SUV carries a bold look at the front and the rear. The SUV-ish visual profile and the high stance with Harrier-like LED DRL units along with headlights, a wide bonnet design and a pronounced grille make it appear bolder. The chunky skid plates has a big black cladding instead of skid plates and arrow-shaped wrap-around taillights at the rear. The alloy design too looks appealing and the large wheel arches could help it tackle roads less than ideal. Overall, Tata Punch remains somewhat true to the concept version HBX showcased during the Auto Expo last year.
