The latest body style to come to the Indian market is micro SUVs. Two of the strongest players in this segment are the Tata Punch and Maruti Suzuki Ignis. Here is a quick comparison between both cars.
While looks are subjective, most people will agree that Punch is a very good-looking car. It is based on the HBX Concept thatTata showcased at Auto Expo. The Punch looks rugged, gets a split headlamp setup and definitely has road presence. This is because the dimensions of the Tata Punch are larger than Ignis in every aspect.
Then there is the Ignis, which has not received any significant upgrade since it was first introduced. It is still a good-looking car with a tall-boy design which means plenty of headroom. To look rugged, the Ignis comes with skid plates, roof rails and plastic cladding on the sides.
