The overall design of the Punch i-CNG is the same as the ICE model. We have the eyebrow DRL upfront with headlamps placed below them. Other than that, the car gets some i-CNG badging on the exterior. With the i-CNG, Tata is using a twin-cylinder setup that are placed below the boot space. This allows the Punch i-CNG to have a decent amount of storage space a major weakenss of CNG cars. Tata has placed the tyre below the boot like some 7-seater SUVs.
