Tata punch vs Maruti ignis

Tata Motors has unveiled its latest offering, the Tata Punch. The Punch sits just below the Nexon in the micro-SUV segment. Here, the Maruti Suzuki Ignis is one of the biggest competitors of the Punch. Let’s compare these cars today and see which stands out!

Tata Punch
  1. Design and Looks

On the exterior, the Punch carries a design similar to the one we see on the beloved Tata Harrier. It gets a bold stance, and the 16-inch wheels make it look much bigger than it is. The Ignis, on the other hand, concentrates on being youthful and urban; As Maruti calls it, the Ignis is the Urban SUV for India. It gets sharper cuts and creases, and the rear is a hit or a miss, depending on person to person. We feel the design of the Ignis is something that will grow on you over some time.

  1. Interior

On the inside, the Punch looks better. The interior is well laid out and is very similar to the interiors of the Tata Altroz. The Steering, driver’s display and infotainment all look very similar to the layout in the Altroz, which is a good thing. The Ignite interior feels slightly outdated. Maruti has added accents that make it look young and urban, but the Ignis needs a redesign.

The Tata punch also has more features than the Ignis, like Cruise control and a digital display in the instrument cluster.

While we haven’t driven the Punch yet, this engine is no stranger. It’s the same unit we see on the Tata Tiago and Tigor, which is not known for its refinement. The Ignis, on the other hand, is extremely refined and silent.

  1. Driving Dynamics

The Punch being taller and wider will make you feel like you’re in a bigger car. It is also much more capable off the road than the Ignis. The Ignis will be better if you only want a smooth and silent car. The Ignis has a lot of body roll and is unstable at high speeds. Since the Punch is on the same platform as the Altroz, we can expect better handling and stability.
