However, Maruti Suzuki is already a known old player in the market which is always on top of the list. Here is a Maruti Suzuki Celerio Vs Tata Punch comparison for understanding the cars better.
Celerio has been in the Indian market for seven years now whereas Punch has just made its entry. Lets see how the carmakers have designed the cars.

It comes with a Radiant front grille with chrome accents, animated sweeping headlamps, electrically-foldable ORVMs with turn indicators, droplet style tail lights, and 15-inch alloy wheels. The side profile of the car carries characteristic lines and the design from the side looks like a mix and match of Alto and S-Presso. Maruti Suzuki has not just made changes to its design language but has also introduced segment-first safety features and has also tweaked the interior of the car. We will discuss them further.
Tata Punch is a compact hatchback that carries a bold design language and looks like a mini-SUV on roads. The hatchback looks quite similar to Harrier and Safari. Tata with its new range is hitting the markets hard. The punch comes equipped with projector headlamps integrated with LED Daytime Running Lights, newly designed LED taillights, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, stylish roof rails, and 90-degree opening doors.
