Let me share my experience This is my first car. We had infact shortlisted Hyundai Santro, Tata Vista, Chevrollet Beat and Fiat Punto. I did my Research and found that, no matter these are good cars but common thing in these cars are their Boot is small, when compared to Punto. Also the back seats are double foldable in the variant I bought whereas it was single foldable for the other cars i had shortlisted. Also came to know that even Maruti's K' series engine are non other than the FIAT engine. So why go for other car when FIAT makes its own car with its own engine. Since I have a pet at home, need to keep in mind about the little fellpw also. I found Punto is spacious enough. hence shortlisted Punto. My family is thrilled on buying our new car. I was more happy when I saw the smile on my Mother's and Sister's face. Prince (my pet Labrador) has also accepted this car and the moment we open the door for him. he reserves one of the seats in the rear for himself. I had taken my Family and my Pet (Prince) on a long drive and the little fella without any signs of uncomfort feeling was enjoying the whole trip.
