    Thank you all,

    To have a feel of highway experience with family & kids, drove 335 KM from bangalore to mysore zoo and back . Believe me this was really very wonderfull experience. I didn't feel any tiredness nor got bored.

    The trips shows
    Distance cover : 335KM
    Time: 7.20 hrs
    Avg Consumption:20.1 kmpl (100% A/c On)
    Avg Speed 55 kmph.

    I am really very happy the way the car is performaning.

    I feel, punto can give more mileage if i improve my driving style.

    Hi All,

    As mention, did a long trip from bangalore to mumbai to gujarat and back to bangalore.

    GP responded very well, no issues at all. enjoyed a lot.


    Best comfortable car to drive. The automatic climate control, internal adjustable mirrors, the integrates Blue and Me on steering wheel and the best i.e. feel of driving a big car.


    I really like the feature which provides information like KMPL, KMs before empty, average time and Instant consumption. the message whenever any window or boot is open, fuel reminder.


    When the outside temperature was 45 degree in Gujarat, Performance of AC was too good.

    No doubt about the engine the way it performance, initial pick up does give feel that need little more power but later it booms.


    The ride & comfort quality is too good, never feel tired and but feel like keep going on and on. The suspension really works well in Indian road. Would be nice to have ground clearance little bit up. The brakes and ABS work really well. The steering grip and handling is also too good, you will realize when you drive on highway.


    Very much satisfy with fuel efficiency, overall an average in city gives 12-15 kmpl with 100% AC on and highway 17-22kmpl 100% ac on.


    The best in hatchback segment is a Boot Space, for my family, the boot space does meet my requirement.

    The service experience till date has been good, did two service and till date the cost incurred up to 6k.




    Overall Experience.
    1. Looks and Style.
    2. Comfortable car to drive.
    3. Steering grip and handling.
    4. Extremely comfortable for long drives.
    5. Strong build – feel more secure.


    What I dislike
    1. More power: The initial lag in the first and second gear.
    2. Ground clearance could have been better.
    3. Rear Seat.
    Overall very much satisfy and proud to be a owner of GP MJD White Emotion and really enjoying driving.

    Thanks for reading.

    Excellent write up and beautiful pics to accompany it :) Way to go chum! About the ground clearance, do you feel it in daily city travel on speed breakers too? Or was it just on some uneven roads on your trip?
