Prior to its October 20 launch event, CarWale has tipped that the Tata Punch will be priced starting at Rs. 4.99 lakh in India. Tata Motors had unveiled the car earlier this month. It will be available in Pure, Adventure, Accomplished, and Creative trims. It runs on a 1.2-liter petrol engine, linked to a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. Here's our roundup.
It sports split headlamps and 16-inch alloy wheels
