On features list Punch does well and offers good amount of features and some of the features are segment first too. We can't comment on valued variant as we don't know the price.

Tata Punch gets 7 color options: Atomic Orange, Tropical Mist, Daytona Grey, Orcus white, Tornado blue, Calypso Red, Meteor brown. 

Maruti Suzuki Ignis colors: Nexa blue, Lucent orange, Silky sliver, Turquoise blue, Grey, Pearl artic white, Orange with black roof, Nexa blue with black/sliver roof.

Safety:

The Punch is based upon Alfa platform which is shared with the Tata's premium hatchback Altroz. As we know Altroz scored 5 star and we can expect the same scores from the Punch. Tata always cared about safety of their customers and they are well delivering with their Punch. 

Maruti Ignis had scored 3 star in the Global NCAP which is acceptable and it is built on Maruti's Heartect A platform. 


Conclusion:

Tata has revealed a great all-rounder in the Micro SUV segment and on the other hand Maruti sells Ignis in decent numbers, it hovers 3000-3500 units per month. Have to see how Punch will affect its sales and will it be the best Micro SUV? Lets wait
