sorry for the very late reply. I am very busy in office these days.
Here is the short TD review for punto 1.3 and 1.2.
Anybody those layman like man in car knowledge can refer this.
There is already many great review on this car and needless to say the BEST `overall
Diesel hatchback in India till date.
1> Interior is nice and smooth on eyes.
2> GC is very good.
3> road handling, driving behavior Best.
4> Easyly eatup all big potholes also.
5> very less cabin noise.
6>Ingress-Outgress very good.
7> Boot space enough.
8> Build quality will last loooong. (not like maruti,jazz, i20, Figo, micra)
9> Many hidden features which not there in other cars in this segment.
10> seating is very comfy.
11> No need to change gear frequently. In 4th Gear also the car smoothly glide @ 15KM speed! without any knocking! (Just like Live)
12> AC damm cool!
1> Price is on the higher side.
2> Back seat leg space bit crampy.
Punto 1.2 :
There the only difference with the 1.3 is the engine and GC.
I am not repeating them all.
1> VERY low cabin noise.
2> very smooth to drive.
3> Great GC (195mm)
1> Pickup in 1st,2nd,3rd is really very poor. this will be an major will in Highways to overtake others.
2> Due to high GC the car ride quality a bit lees then 1.3.
3> No ABS
even in 1.2 Dy version.
4> Price is still on higher side in compare to Figo.
So. in my view except the pick issue then is no much cons in Punto 1.2. So the people
who donot want a racing but want a safe car to transport from point A to point B for long team can opt for this.
Though I will TD new i20 and will decide there after.
thanks for reading.
