:wow 160kmph is awesome.. I have only managed 145kmph till date.... maybe because roads are less in my place......
Congrats Gurmeet for your punto. I have touched 140 Km/hr ( NH5 Rajhamundri-Vizag section) & my driver touched 160 (NH5- Bhubaneswar-Jaleswar section). But I have tried it, but I feel 100- max120 is way better for safety as Indian road condition is not good to drive more tnan that constanatly.
Lol...!! Everyone is so shocked:lol.
Perhaps no one has noticed that it catches 160@4000RPM & 180@4500RPM. This little cub behind the dashboard Revv. upto 5200 RPM. Absolutely blows the socks & hats off the wanna be Chinese stuff (black window glass's, fake wide alloys & playboy written on rear windshield:mrgreen. A-Star & Santro's get a boost of 20 km/hr by the push of the dragged air by this mad stuff when it passes by glowing red. This is one hell of a CAR:cool!
Hi Gurmeet, You don't need to switch off the AC even with 5 people on board. Never ever you will feel for lack of outright grunt & high speeds, just take care of this beauty as it deserves. The world is damn fast forwarded. Keep rocking..!!
I've done 150kmph on my 75PS punto with 4 ppl and their luggages.
You just need to change the gears at the right time and ensure you have loads of free road
For single occupant, hardly 1.5 KMs of stretch is required to catch 4500 RPM (it's lesser for sure).
You must be feeling like it would take ages after 125-130, no it's not? exactly opposite. It's feels lesser agile between 70-100 than 120-150 to me. It's surprisingly quick in 90 HP though progress takes a bit after 4400 RPM & genuinely slow@4800 RPM onwards. Negligible hopping time for come backs, very good in-gear acceleration.
This is strictly for 90 HP, no opinions on 75 HP because i have not driven it enough to be confident. AC & 500 KG additional weight doesn't affect mid/top range noticeably & more than enough to knock out the first timer. For sure, it will be noticeable for the one who has experienced the same speed as a sole occupant though. None the less, it will still climb with ridiculous amount of GUTS! I personally like it when it's full loaded. My reason being the additional weight adds to it's stability without affecting it's ride/control/balance. Mind it stability at such speeds is at high demand for any vehicle@whatever segment@whatever price.
If you don't find the above traits in 90HP, it's because because you never tried it.
