    Sure I can do it. I will do it after 6th Feb and post asap.
    I have already done side by side comparo of Figo 1.2 Titanium and Punto a few weeks back (though they don't belong to the same segment). Even that report is pending. ::V Here are a few teasers.

    Both are good looking. Punto surely gets a second look on road. One thing I've seen is that you don't have to compromise on looks part from any angle in contrast to i20 (rear), Fabia (side), Polo (rear) and Jazz (front).

    Polo has a low overall height. So it looks wider especially in white shade and thus looks best from the rear. The negative side is that since the ground clearance is normal like all other cars, the head room is compromised. Red Polo looks better when viewed from the front.

    Wow mate its really good to know that the guy with the ANHC acknowledge the punto like this. Says a lot doesnt it? The ANHC has a very good engine but i feel it lacks the chassis, its weight and the tyres to support that engine.

    I agree completely with you paddleshifter, interior space, especially the rear leg room and the features even on the highline polo were the main reason for me opting for the polo. That said you still should try the gearshift in polo :)

    Gearshift of polo and vento are the best in their respective segment there no doubt about that.
    But gear shift of linea is not bad. It have become very smooth now after 22k kms though not as smooth as polo.

    No doubt even Punto and Linea have smooth gear shifts but they are no as crisp and precise as the Polo. apart from that I find the Punto to be an over all better product than Polo.

    You are right Mihir, punto is ofcourse a better product than the polo, but no hard feelings, even polo looks great.

    I agree, no hard feelings at all. Polo and Punto are both stunners in the looks department, so it all boils down to personal preference.

    lol. The way you guys are talking about Polo being a good looker makes it appear (at least to me) that now you guys are slowly finding Polo to be a better looker. :lol:

    Guys, Polo in white is a great looker too. It is low in overall height so looks wider and the simple shape looks great. No exaggerated lines.
