Tata Punch Vs Tata Nexon - Detailed Comparison!

The Tata Nexon is one of the highest selling cars in the brand's line-up and boasts an extremely safe cabin, a good looking exterior design and capable powertrain options. The Tata Nexon was also the most affordable SUV in the brand's line-up but with the launch of the Punch, the Nexon has definitely lost this place. The Tata Punch is the first micro-SUV by the Indian carmaker and comes with an extensive features list along with an extremely bold and impressive design. While there is a significant difference in the prices of the two vehicles, the Tata Punch does offer similar capabilities and an SUV-like presence that makes it a great contender for those looking for a smaller SUV when compared to the Nexon. Here is a detailed Tata Punch Vs Tata Nexon comparison that will help you understand the two products better.

Tata Punch vs Tata Nexon Comparison - Design and Dimension

Tata Punch Blue White Dual Tone Front Three Quarters

The Tata Punch follows what we call a modern SUV design language and gets a high-set hood along with bumper-mounted headlamps and prominent LED DRLs. The large grille at the front along with the humanity chrome line gives it a bold presence. The bulky bumper and the black plastic cladding gives it a tough and rugged look. A similar design is also seen on the Harrier. The car not only gets many upmarket features like projector headlamps, and contrast roof colour options. The side profile is dominated by large R-16 dual cut alloy wheels while the prominent cladding over the wheel arches and a high ground clearance helps the Punch look great.

The Nexon on the other hand gets a more aggressive styling. Just like the Punch, the Nexon too features a high ground clearance. The bumper at the front gels in well with the design and the alloy wheels too attract a number of eyeballs. In terms of dimensions, the Nexon is significantly larger than the Punch and also offers a slightly better road presence. Both these vehicles offer similar exterior features.

The Tata Punch is powered by a 1.2-L Revotron engine that boasts a maximum power and torque output of 86 ps and 113 Nm respectively. This engine can be had with a 5-speed MT or an AMT gearbox. The performance is decent and may not excite the hardcore driving enthusiasts. The fuel economy too is decent and you can expect somewhere over 15 kmpl from this three-pot engine.

The Tata Nexon on the other hand gets a turbocharged petrol engine. This engine delivers a peak power of 120 ps while the maximum torque output stands at 170 Nm. This engine comes mated to a 6-speed MT while an optional 6-speed AMT is also on offer. Unlike the Tata Punch, the Nexon can also be had with an extremely powerful and fuel-efficient diesel engine.

Features Comparison

A modern dashboard layout with a floating island infotainment system helps in enhancing the ambience of the cabin of Tata Punch. The car also gets auto climate control along with a 7 inch digital TFT cluster. The seats at the front and at the rear are comfortable and high-set. The visibility too is great but the space at the rear is restricted when compared to the Nexon.

The Tata Nexon gets a dual-tone colour scheme inside the cabin that not only looks premium but also boasts high built quality. The steering wheel feels nice to hold and the digital instrument console is easy to read. The infotainment system however offers a similar experience and the audio quality of the system is comparable to that of the Punch. In addition to this, the Nexon and the Punch also offer similar seating positions and visibility that makes both these vehicles extremely easy to drive in the city and through the narrow spaces.
