Pros : STYLE ,Price, Room ,Comfort

Cons : build quality (easy dents),average handling


Ok I tried this car when I was in UK and the model and engine looks similar. The first thing first this car has great looks and space, so it can easily fit 5 people and their luggage for a long drive. The back seats are foldable so if you are family of two then you can carry lot of stuff in the back. People in Europe call Fiat a rust car, but Punto has come out of that world of mouth with good quality steel used, but still this car is susceptible to easy dents. I preferred ford fiesta (Hatch) for motorway driving in UK because the Punto (1.2 petrol) start complaining as soon as you start crossing 70 miles speed (110 km/hr). Note these speed statistics are useless for India as I hardly cross 80 kilometer per hours in India. So next time someone says fiesta can go till 130 kmph, tell him that is irresponsible driving in India. The riding comfort is very good in this car with adjustable driving seat and good suspension. So all in all although the petrol version engines were average in Europe they would be real good for Indian roads. The mileage for petrol version in city should be around 12 after service.
