After a lot of thinking ive decided to take the italian beauty to her extend a one stretch drive to kollur , Myself , my wife and kids planned the trip , So we started off by noon from Trivandrum through MC road to Angamali with AC on , This was my first ever 500KM stretch drive one way , little bit scared abt the distance oneway clocks around 835Km. didnt do any prechecks since its ran 3100Km , Checked the tyre pressure done 32 on each filled up the diesel full tank and vroommmmmmmmm. So started off through MC road via Muvattupuzha to Angamali 4 lane Road, The Punto's handling is fantastic in the Muvattupuzha stretch in MC very rigig , smooth and comfort , She was cruising at the curves and turnings in a very simple manner with more control. started crusing the italian beauty at the Angamali -thrissur 4 lane highway tried 120 didnt take much risk since kids were on board . So stayed at calicut for a 5 hr halt. Started early morning from calicut at 3 am to kollur , The steering control was amazing in the Manglore - kollur stretch just overtaking the Ventos, and polos cruising at 110 wow its an experience , Sadly i didnt see any Puntos till Kollur in the highway. So next phase is a risky one , On my way back decided to push 835Km in one go , I told my wife its a ride and it will be test for a 17 hr so we started the return trip at 5 30 from kollur , The breaks were just maximum 30 min at 2 times for having food, I didnt face and niggles when my beauty taking us back , i was driving with confidence , im a 6 2 ft guy i knew the leg space will be not that much easy when i chose Punto. But it was perfect , really missed the Arm rest , its a must i felt though for a typical long drive, no strains on legs on Traffic or applying clutch in the Mahe - Calicut stretch, Always the AC was one except for a few hrs in the early mornings to and fro The fuel efficiency was 17.2Km/l on the whole journey , So it was a nice experience really loved the drive with the MJD emotion without any single issues.
