Look and Style: If looks can kill, it's Fiat Punto. Just park your car anywhere and you will notice looks of admiration from passers by. Designed by Giorgito Giujiaro the automobile designer of the century.Many renowned models including Vaxwagan Golf and Ford Mustang designed by him.If looks alone can decide it is the car. Comfort: Shock absorber best in class. It just sticks to the road. Get a test ride and you will understand.You won't tire even after driving for hours becasde of driver seat design and adjustable wheel. Pickup: Poor pickup in 2nd gear. But in all other it matches competition. Mileage: Great. 19km/litre on diesel on city road condition. !7km with ac on. Best Features: Electronic Break Distribution System works like a charm. Superb AC. Blaupunkt suond system delivers crystal clean sound with good presence. Huge boot space. You can drive at 20km/hr even in fourth gear. In fifth gear it gives the feeling of flying. In terms value for money it leaves competition way behind. Needs to improve: Only complain is pickup in 2nd gear. But after driving 5000km I have become accustomed to it. Overall Experience: Weel I have become a fan of  Fiat. If I ever upgrade possibly I would buy a Linea. Great customer care. Your rating of the service center is tracked. Service center works hard to get a 10 rating and tries to satisfy you every possible way.

    I am not denying with mileage of SWIFT as it also has FIAT diesel Engine. But do SWIFT VDI has all the features I mentioned in Punto Emotion. Also I am not saying that Swift is a bad car I am just saying that my experience with PUNTO is great and I am happy with it since 8 months and driven 18000 Kms. 1. Huge boot space 2. Electronic controlled side mirrors 3. It has 2 trip meters 4. Both trip meters shows Average mileage, Avg. Speed, Instantaneous mileage and trip duration 5. It will display lot of details on the console like: How many kms. you can go with the remaining diesel, Temp, Date, Stereo info, Service reminder 6. It will also display in written Front Right Door Open, if any door including boot is open 7. The folding key has in built center locking. 8. Auto down in all four power window and auto up in driving side. 9. Nice blaupunkt music system with a feature like volume increase & decrease with speed. 10. Driving seat height adjustment. 11. Stearing height adjustment. 12. Rear Wiper with Defogger. 12. Double glove box. 13. Service at 15000 Kms with approx cost of 4500/-. I got my Punto Emotion Diesel on road for 602000/-. I was also confused between Swift VDI(585000), Punto Emotion, Polo but looking at all the features offered in this price range I decided to go with Punto and I do not regret my decision. I gave 15000/- extra for Punto then Swift but I got my car with in 7 days not 4 months waiting time. Also just for info FIAT is parent company of Ferrari. :)

    RITZ has best mileage in diesel hatch. followed by swift and punto. I think its weight of the car punto gives lowest mileage among the three.Punto is a great diesel hetch available in India no doubt only two thing i think they should improve first A.S.S and second is poor interior plastics.Swift also should improve interiors.AC not so bad but swift AC cools fast.Overall it can outsmart swift in all other departments.Punto suspension,dynamics and handling is great very stable on higher speeds.

    @Sriram My FIAT has gone 18000 Kms. A.C is superb, I guess at service you must have said no to replace the AC air filter. There is an easy and cheap solution to your problem, FIAT provides a separate AC air filter only for 30-40/- just go to service center and ask the guy to clean AC air filter or if required change the same, it will again chill you out. So man there is a solution to every problem its just that you should think of it before criticizing anything. Every car is designed by the company after lot of research its just your point of view and attitude how you take problems. :) @Priyangshu I will support you but will also say that all the diesel hatchback's today are giving good mileage it just depends on your driving and lot other factors. I can not paste a pic here but my punto gave highest I can think of while driving from Rohini to Noida its 28.0 Km/L. It shows the overall mileage on the console for the trip. if you want I will mail the same to you. Enjoy driving. :)
