@ramjin - Handling is a sum up of steering+body roll, so a light and fast steering coupled with less body roll will aid handling. Do remember that the comparison is between new swift and old Punto. Engineers of Suzuki had all the time to compare Punto and tweaks their car so, according to me it is not really surprising, but it is surprising to see that all these R&D effort could not help them to make the car as stable as Punto. Now, tell me - if you have a car which handles super, but is less stable and you have another car which handles well and supremely stable, which one will be more safe? Swift may be more fun, but if you add up all the parameters, we can clearly se ethat even all these R&D did not help Suzuki to come up with a car which trumps Punto in all aspects. @Kedar - the new Punto which is rumored to be introduced soon - It is just a face-lift right? or does the car have new underpinnings too? I was under the impression that the new one will be just a face-lift with new interiors, but mechanically, there will not be any differences. @jaydev: that is exactly the reviewer is saying, he is saying that because of the new and tight chassis and suspension, and improved and fast EPS, Swift handles better.
