@purshotam77, you should go for the petrol variant as your driving would be less. My average running is 800 Kms per month and I chose TJet than the Diesel variant, though not the only reason why I opted TJet over diesel. I have never driven a Punto, so won't be able to comment on its riding abilities. I think fellow members and your TD has already answered it for you. Do let us know once you get your hands on the car in a few months. Congrats on your new house!
