My love my 90hp bnw punto!!!! short review and pics

Discussion in 'Punto 1.3 MJD 90 HP' started by matthewjoy, Oct 20, 2011.

  1. Background
    From 2010 end onward we were planing to buy one more vehicle to our family.other vehicles that we have is ambassador(1977 model still in good conduction) and suzuki baleno (2006 model she is powerful).
    I was considering only 3 cars - Punto, Polo and the i20.It was quite close between the Punto, Poloi and i20...but i dint had much difficulty to find my kind of vehicle....
    the main things i was looking for is high speed driveablity and the stability.... polo and punto both handles speeds well.. both looks good and hot.. considering the engine polo is 1.2l 3 cylinder in other hand punto is 1.3l 4 cylinder 90 hp much better engine
    so i decided to go for punto 90hp
