    @bhai : thanks for advice but our running is very low (~500km/month) and we usally used car on saturday and sunday only ( + if any other holidays ) and Two Big highway Trip in the Year (~1000km/Trip), so we can not take diesel .
    Right Now we have ZEN ( power = 60bhp at 6000 rpm and torque = 8kgm/4500 rpm) , It's Does not have much turbo lag ....
    after TD Punto 1.2 , I does not feel much difference in both but I'll Write My Final Comment after TD Punto 1.4 . ( can not take Linea 1.4 = Budget is max 7.50 lakhs only.)

    There is no turbocharger in the Zen, Amar. It has a naturally aspirated engine.

    That's because of lack of low-end torque, as Bhai mentioned :)

    Let us keep these strictly to prices. Suppose you buy a 1.2 or 1.4 petrol car or say city. Now petrol price is ~70 in mumbai. You said that your run will be ~500 and these cars give max 13 kmpl in city. So consumption is ~39 litres of petrol costing ~2700.

    Now i have a feeling since this running is there in your old Zen, so going by human nature it will increase with new car and go to ~750 per month. So the fuel expenses will reach ~4000.

    Please think of buying diesel car, there is just a difference of 1000-1500 Rs per year in maintenance in comparision to petrol and you will save much more. Even if you drive 1000kms per month the costing will be only ~2700. you will save the same amount in a month which will be spent in annual maintenance.

    Coming to re-sale the petrol cars have pretty bad re-sale in this segment when compared to Diesels and being 1.3 MJD you will get a good re-sale value.

    You will also have an option to increase the usage as per requirement without worrying of the fuel expenses.

    This was just my bit. I am expecting that you will TD 1.3 MJD Punto Dynamic now...

    Ohhh My God !! Buying Punto now difficult to us....Every one advise different Engine option !!
    Difference between punto 1.4 and punto MJD emotion is just ~20K only.....But our uses is very low and mostly using sat and sunday only.
    Is it safe to buy Diesel ?? is there any problem car not using for 4-5 day/week.. Is there any big difference in MJD and 90 bhp??
    So whaat ur word Guys ?? as Per our uses , should we buy punto 1.4 or MJD Emotion ??
    ( Punto 1.2 dynamic is not considered , reason is its not coming with emotion varient , we want fully loaded car as we keep this new car upto 5-7 years)

    MJD is VFM
    Differance beteeen 75 & 90 HP

    90 HP has variable geometry turbocharger. So turbo lag is very min.
    In 75 HP you have to wait till 1500 RPM to start magic of turbo.
    90 HP give turbo boost right from 1200 RPM

    90 HP is more refined than 75 HP.


    Additional 15 BHP & 12 NM torque is experienced at highway

    75 HP is also good car. But 90 HP is ' Sone pe Suhaga'.

    In petrol engine you will get only power. But to spin the wheel Torque figure is important

    Diesel produce more torque than gasoline.

    less gear changes, fatigue free driving,milege,low operating cost,better resale value
    these are + point of diesel engine.
    75 or 90 HP choice is your
    If you have budget then don't avoid 90 HP
