Brio isn't a premium hatch. Punto is a premium hatch. Looks, built, ride & handling, features - Punto Psychological peace (There are horror stories of Maruti ASS also), additional 1-2 kmpl - Swift Those who says 15-17 kmpl have nothing else to say about their swift. Either they are lying or they don't know that they are driving a diesel car. If you get 13-14 kmpl, you should feel lucky. Your monthly mileage of 1000 kms qualify for diesel. Anyways once you buy a car you tend to drive more.
