Punto 1.2 Or Punto 1.4 or Figo 1.2? Dear Friends and Car experts, This is my first post here. I am planning to buy a Hatchback (within 6.5 L (MAX.): On Road). It is my NEED not a luxury. I stay in Bangalore with my 11 month baby and wife. My need is : 1> On Emergency 2> Long drive during week ends. Use will be not much in city. A> Should I but Diesel Car Or Petrol ? (Petrol price is getting too high day by day. ) Following are the important points for me. a> Safety. Car should be robust, well build and roughed. b> Quality riding & driving comfort. Good sitting space in front and rear. c> Good Mileage. d> Low Maintain cost (Low TCO). e> I am not looking for resale point. Basis on these points I selected 1> Fiat Grande Punto Emotion 1.2 /1.4 (this cost 5.5 to 6.5L in Bangalore, but without airbag etc...) 2> Ford Figo Titanium 1.2 (I found some complain about headlight and ground clearance with 5 full size people.) (this cost 5.5 L in Bangalore) Questions: 1> Can you please let me know which car should I buy and why? 2> What about the feedback on Punto and Figo? 3> Can I Fit a CNG or LPG kit to a Punto petrol in future ? My drive will be maximum 5000 KM per year. I personally like pertol engine but now as the fuel cost is going high and high so bit confused. I found the following pros and cons for each engine. Diesel : Pros: 1> Lower Cost , 2> Higher Mileage 3>do not need cell charged to start the engine (if I donot use the car for long time) Cons: 1> Should run everyday otherwise need to change many parts 2> High maintain cost after 4-5 years. better to sale! 3> Cannot convert to CNG./LPG easily. Petrol: Pros: 1> Easy to maintain 2> Car cost 1 L less 3> If I donot use for long term also just need to recharge the cell 4> less noise & vibration, refined, 5> Can be install CNG/LPG ( but not sure with Ford Figo) Cons: 1> High fuel cost 2> lower mileage Dear Experts , Is this all correct? Plz. validate. question : With Car should I buy . 1> Petrol or Diesel? 2> If Petrol ...... then : a>Ford Figo 1.2 Duratec Petrol Titanium Or b> Punto 1.2 FIRE Petrol Emotion? c> Punto 1.4 FIRE Petrol Punto 1.4 Emotion ( and why should I spend 50K then 1.2 Emotion) ? 3> Is a 1.2 L Petrol Engine underpowered for Long drive with 4 person and other carry? Today I again gone and checked Figo and Punto. Now I and my wife more inclined towards, yes, PUNTO (P). As the build quality, GC, engine, both front and rear sitting , thing support, much better then Figo. I donot bother about music system, bluetooth, etc. I want the CAR should be robust, good engine, breaking system, GC, suspension, boot space. I really feel safe, felt good , while in Punto. Feel as if I am in a sedan class car. I will only miss the Airbag, but that's ok. In the month-end I will go for TD of Punto 1.2, Punto 1.4 , Figo 1.2. Now my question/confussion is: 1> Should I go for Punto 1.2 or 1.4 (both Emotion version, as my fund will noway permit more then that.) I donot like a under-powered car. 2> What is the real mileage of Punto 1.2 in City and Highway with Full A/C? What is the real mileage of Punto 1.4 in City and Highway with Full A/C? 3> As for 1.2 version I have to pay less so should I go for 1.2 only? Mind it : I will use it mostly for week-end drive and if needed in emergency. 4> Or should I buy 1.4L version (6.5L) in Bangalore though the mileage will be lesser and price is higher. 5> Prerana Motors : Agara Jn., Sarjapur Ring Road : Is this dealer good (for A.S.S)? or KHT Motors : Kundanahalli main road, Whitefield ? Sorry for the very long and detailed post. (I am only interested either in Punto or Figo.) Best regards and Thanks in Advance.
