Engine & Gear box doesn't make soul. With complete respect to your understanding, for me Manza/Swift are just appliances like Oven/Refrigerator. If you managed to find soul into them, good for you, pls go ahead. Also if you find them to your likings, Punto would be terribly useless for you. Yes, i also clarify that there are even more drawbacks of punto that you didn't notice. Rear seat are most cramped in it's class, comparatively higher wind noise, louder engine noise inside cabin, Brakes overtly strong for other cars rewarding you occasional dents/scratches, Max. turning radius, over engineered chassis making it uselessly bulky, least mileage of diesel & petrol among it's competitors. Still, the only car in it's segment that can be associated with Soul & passion. That's what soul & passion is!! Only crazy like us can sense in a car that is full of back draws for an average user. Don't scratch your head too much to dig this passion/soul/heart thing, have a go at Manza/Swift. They are good choices as majority buyers prove it. But again even Alto could do that which is obviously filled with passion & soul from tip to toe, what's the point of spending 4 lac's extra? Manza/Swift are no "Rolls Royce Ghost" or "Bentley Muslanne" if you will for any status symbol:confused.
