After driving the Maurti Ritz, I have this mental block that no hatchback can be as comfortable and as smooth as this. At the same time my friend has a Fiat Grande Punto and he is in love with that. We decided to take a trip in each other’s car. Must admit, the sparkling red Punto looked quite good. Fiat Grande Punto has a spectacular spacing. The interiors and exteriors look very finished and high quality. The leg room seemed to be a little better in Punto but in terms of comfort both are equally good. The boot, no doubt is fantastic for a hatchback in the Fiat. However when it comes to driving, Ritz is more responsive and smooth in comparison. The gear shift is better as well. The brakes were however more responsive in Punto, but that might be because the Punto is just 7 months out of the showroom as compared to the Ritz, which I had purchased 11 months back. The mileage that Punto diesel is delivering is around 12kmpl and Ritz is delivering around 17 kmpl. In terms of handling and control as well, Ritz seems to be better. The comfort on the bumpy roads is more in the Ritz thanks to the higher ground clearance. If we consider in terms of resale value, my car would be far better even if just because of the brand name that it holds. Plus, the advantage is the service centres. I don’t have to run around looking for spare parts and service stations because of the wide spread Maruti network. So even after the test drive, my car is still the best and it would take a lot for anyone to change this fact.
