Design and feel

Tata Punch and Hyundai Exter, both are sub-compact SUVs less than four meters in length. The design of both is quite different from each other.

Engine and Power

Tata Punch has a 1.2 liter 3 cylinder petrol engine which generates 72.5PS of power and 103 Nm of torque. This engine is equipped with a 5 speed gearbox. Hyundai Exter has a 1.2 liter 4 cylinder petrol engine which generates 83PS of power and 114Nm of torque. It has a 5 speed manual gearbox. Both engines are in 1200cc but here the engine of Hyundai Exter is capable of giving smoother and better performance than the engine of Tata Punch, because it is a 4 cylinder engine, you will get more initial pickup in Tata Punch.

But at high speed (80-100kmph) the engine of Punch makes noise and vibrations. Whereas you will not face this problem in Exter. Hyundai Exter drives better in city drive, its steering feels light while the steering of Punch will feel a bit heavy. But on the highway, the steering wheels of both the vehicles remain in control and there is no problem. In terms of braking, both the vehicles are fine.

How will the purchase be beneficial ?

Tata Punch is currently the best selling SUV (in all segments), while Exter also sells well. Tata Punch sells more in India because it has received a 5 star safety rating in the crash test, while Hyundai Exter has not been crash tested but the company is hopeful that it will get a 4-5 star rating. The price of both the vehicles starts at Rs 6.13 lakh.

In terms of premium quality, great features and smooth performance, Hyundai Exter proves to be one of the best sub-compact SUVs. Its base model has more features than Punch, with 6 airbags, Exter offers safety to all the occupants while Punch only has two front airbags. Tata Motors is still far behind in terms of after sales service whereas Hyundai does not let the customers down in this matter.
