As many of you know I bought my Punto 1.3 mjd 75 hp in April and till now run some 3700 KM. Once I went for a long trip of around 1500 km. As a first time car owner and have not used to drive any other cars, I might have taken many good things in Punto for granted. But recently I got a chance to drive my neighbour's Wagon R. It was parked on the way so I had to move it away. I got the key and opened the door. I realised the first big difference, the door was very light and seriously I felt it like a toy car's door. The thud in Punto make me feel sitting in safe bunker but this is totally absent in other hatches. In my short time inside the cabin I understood what people call as handling and precise steering. The steering was like a video car's gizmo totally disconnected from wheels. I was not sure how much I need to turn the steering to take the car out delicately in the narrow space. As I have not driven it on open road I cannot comment on ride quality. Even my friends who comes with me prasied that Punto gives a secure feeling. Punto has very good brakes and precise steering which I can tell for sure. In my long trip I had to apply sudden brake in one situation as the truck I was overtaking changed lane. The car was completely halted and in style and control. Being a new driver I was amazed how quietly it obeyed its master when he needs to pull it strings!!!
