    @ Bala, it's my first :)

    Ok, now about the selection

    - Budget: 7-7.5 lacs
    - Requirement: Hatchback, diesel
    - Priority: Safety, looks, performance

    Based on above I shortlisted following cars

    Volkswagen Polo
    - Good: Best looking,
    - Bad: Pricy, three cylinder engine, cramped legroom

    Hyundai i20
    - Good: Looks, space, interiors
    - Bad: Too costly, light steering, so many bad reviews

    Ford Figo
    - Good: Most specious in the segment, handling, best audio, value for money
    - Bad: Low ground clearance, ugly looks, looks small from outside

    Maruti Suzuki Swift
    - Good: Looks, performance
    - Bad: Common on road, costly top model, thinnest tires, cramped legroom and impractical boot

    Fiat Punto
    - Good: Head turner, performance, widest tyres, best brakes, best price to features
    - Bad: Interior fits & finish, improper dashboard design, long clutch

    There are many reasons to select PUNTO DIESEL EMOTION

    First, I got a good deal
    - Ex-showroom price: 6.68 lacs
    - Registration & taxes: 0.45 lacs
    - VIP number: 0.15 lacs
    - Transportation: 0.15 lacs (from Delhi to Bhubaneswar, another story, shall describe in my next post)
    - Total on-road: 7.43 lacs

    Second, I got a good package
    - Basic kit
    - Extended warranty
    - Seat cover
    - Body cover
    - 195mm spare wheel & tyre

    I found Punto to be the best price to feature package. None of the cars in the segment can match its price. I was looking for the top model to get all features. Only Punto gave me everything within my budget without compromising anything. Top models of Polo, i20, Swift were more than 8 lacs on road, hence out of my budget. I could have got a Figo @ 7 lacs, but I did not like its looks and the ground low clearance was another issue.

    Finally, it was the emotion version of Punto, a solid performer, thrilling high speed experience, best brakes, best suspension and a definite head turner.
