I agree with Amiti. Also be adviced, Fabia is far more expensive to maintain as compared to Swift. Recently i went across the price list of varous equipments which were damn expensive. I remember readin the price of Fog lamp assemble as 18k. But that was the list of OE for Old Fabia. Also they reduced the prices of spares sometime back,, So before you reach to any conclusion do check out the cost of maintainance too. Just a suggestion from my side.
As for the Skoda A.S.S, try to get the feedback from the Skoda owners in your area. They will give you a better idea. Skoda has put in a lot of efforts to improve their A.S.S.
i wonder whats wrong with the punto? if you are looking for a car thats well priced, reasonably good looking and a worthy performer, then i should suggest figo. But here are the reasons why i opted a punto.
1) it looks better. tell me a cheaper car that has been designed by THE Italdesign group.
and along with that comes the exclusivity issue. punto scores points there as well.
2)seating position. that solely depends on your interest and height, but i liked the punto more.
3)quality of plastics[regardless of what they say about punto] is better than figo.
4) punto seemed more spacious. especially the front seats,. its huge.
5) and this is great piece of information. a neighbor of mine works in the Nation Insurance , and she says they are fed up with figo. there are so many accidents taking place , with a lot of the drivers siting the seating position of the car as the major reason. this could a false information, especially when you compare the number of puntos and figos on road. but she did say this to us.
and about i20, we have other forums discussing the issue. punto was a personal choice, and i thought the punto handled much better in the TD than i20.
Fabia, Polo and forget Jazz its a different car LOL. But still i find the Punto plastics better than Maruti, Ford and comparable to i20(Forget Vista). Again if you take the price comparison the which car is VFM?
In these list, only Punto 1.4 and Vista90 have 1.4L engine, all others are 1.2L engine.
Fabia, Polo and Figo, all are 1.2L and 3-cyl engine. Where as Swift, Punto and Vista90 have 4 cylinder engine.
If you want to have proven car on road, Swift should be the choice, but it has huge waiting period.
If you are looking for space, it has to be Vista.
But if you want the car whose ride & handling is implacable, it has to be Punto 1.4L. Also this will give you the best driving pleasure.
