I am glad Punto comes with HPS instead of EPS. Punto is known for its superb steering feel & precision & credit can be given to the HPS for that.
I feel EPS lacks the firmness at high speeds. No doubt, it may feel awesome at parking speeds but when the speeds rise, it feels dead.
Positives of HPS over EPS :
1) More feel
Positives of EPS over HPS :
1) EPS does not sap power from engine, so it is more fuel efficient
2) EPS does not require any oil/maintainence
Most of the Indian customers term a lighter steering as a good steering. That is the reason EPS is preferred over HPS.

EPS is more fuel efficient than HPS since HPS saps engine power.
