Tata Punch and the Maruti Suzuki products mentioned above each have their own unique strengths and misses. Punch scores a perfect five in Global NCAP crash tests while Baleno is the only car here that also offers CVT which is far more refined than the AGS on Punch, Swift and Ignis. Punch is also likely to benefit from the fact that it is a new product with more unique features and that it has credible off-road skills despite being a front-wheel drive minus 4x4 credentials. On the other hand, Maruti Suzuki is known to dominate its field of play courtesy a wide sales and post-sales network, as well as a solid resale value.
