    @Akshay- As RoyJ said, he was just comparing the ride and handling part of the two cars which is fair I guess.

    RoyJ- You have been treating us facebook users with wonderful XJ pics for the past few days. When are you getting a Ferrari for such tests? :p

    You are right. They are all just displays and some of our teams does them.

    Thank you Kedar. But when you are working with them you don't feel the luck and responsibility is pretty hard on you.

    Thank you Yashik. If we get a chance to work with Ferrari may be we can get one. I personally would love to have this kind of a relation with FIAT.

    There is nothing wrong in comparing a punto with XJ or in that case with any premium cars as far as it is between comparable aspects.
    What Punto can do if its drive is so good and it is the responsibility of XJ or x y z to move ahead further if want not to be compared. :up

    Lucky you Roy. ;)

    Did anyone notice the Average Consumption figures of the XJ in the pic?

    27.3 L /100km = 3.66 kmpl. Awesome!:D

    @Akshay - Chill out dude. If you wanna see fanboys, i can point you in the right direction.

    Cheers.

    Gurjinder, you are amazing! You can't expect much more from a V8 3L petrol engine.

    Just to compare - my Punto costs some where around 2.30Rs/km. This would be close to 20Rs/km
    Purchase cost is 10 times, so is the running cost :D
