    2021 Tata Punch review, road test

    Having conducted our tests in Eco mode, the Tata Punch threw up a pleasant surprise, with the AMT being more fuel efficient than the manual transmission, returning 10.7kpl in the city and 16.9kpl on the highway, 0.4kpl and 0.8kpl higher than the manual. Helping the AMT’s case is its early upshifting nature in the city and its reluctance to downshift on the highway, in the interest of efficiency. The manual’s engine start-stop feature helps its case to a certain extent in the city.

    Only the manual gets engine start-stop feature, to meet Tata’s CO2 and fuel efficiency targets.

    Response for Accelaration is sluggish and irritating , difficult to cross 70KMPH speed barrier on plain road ( express ways) while AC is on, steering is not that smooth and free .
