Look and Style : perfect style car.
Comfort : i feel it is not very comfortable for long drives beacuse of the sitting posture on front seats. it gives u posture of racing car...u get good control on driving and all but u cant take it for long. Also its cabin noise is very high..unless u have music running on high volume its is very irritating inside.
Pickup : Excellent pickup on 2nd and 3rd gear.
Mileage : This being my first car...i assume i have not been driving to full efficiency. I have driven it for almost 16000 kms mostly on highway. It gives decent mileage of 20 KM/ltr if u maintain steady speed of 80-90. After 90 it is very noisy, it feels im dragging it....although speed and control is good but mileage drops to 15-16 km/ltr. In city traffic it is like any other car with 12-13 km/ltr.
Best Features : To me best thing abt this car is Control, breaking system...u get excellent control on curves at even speed of 100km/hr. Breaking is also very good. Other good thig i like about it is its dashboard and space inside, i guess it is best in its segment.
Needs to improve : My car is very noisy...at times i feel as i am driving a tractor.pickup on 2 nd 3 gear is very noisy. i have sit in Swift and other diesel cars but punto seems to be very noisy nd i hate it...it gives u feeling of tiredness very soon as if u have been driving for hours.
Overall Experience : overall it is good in terms of style, space, control nd i feel it is best hatchback diesel with best value for money.
