Punch, thanks to its compact proportions, could be a good option to negotiate congested city roads. With its aggressive pricing, it could also be a great option for the budget buyers looking for a vehicle that has the proportions of an SUV. That the vehicle can tackle roads which are less than perfect is another bonus.
