    Dear Friends,
    Now that we have a Polo TSi in market, I was curious to know how many of us are ready to grab a Punto T-Jet and if yes at what price point (Lower, Equal or more than Polo TSi).
    I sure would love to buy it at any price point.
    Regards
    Tushar

    The polo TSI comes only with the DSG auto box whereas the punto if at all launched, will come with only with MT.
    So, I think it is not valid to compare by the price! :)

    Punto with a Tjet engine and that too a manual gearbox is still worth to be picked up for the driving fun quotient.

    Punto Tjet retailing at around 7 Lakhs ex showroom can fetch a few buyers.

    if linea Tjet can be sold from 7L, punto Tjet can be easily sold from 6L, 1L+ lesser !!

    The punto with the 1.4 Tjet will fall into the same tax bracket as the linea as it will not qualify as a small car unlike the polo 1.2 tsi. :( :( So, I am not sure if they will be able to price it at less than lakh compared to the TJet.

    Punto Evo might be launched with T-Jet engine this year & pricing might be very competitive against Polo TSI.

    There's a 1.4 NA Punto available isn't here? The 1.4 TJet Punto could potentially be priced at 1.4 NA Punto + cost of turbo + rear discs ? :D

    That said, I'd like to see a full on treatment: bring in the highest tune (bigger turbo + better shocks) or even the S2000 version.

    If I am looking for a Turbo petrol hatch, I would pick up a Punto over a Polo any given day.

    Reasons:
    - The service of a Punto is many times cheaper as compared to Polo
    - The service quality and ASC attitude at a VW service center has negative ratings from the VW owners and has been termed as nothing better than TATA.

    Then of course, Punto is slightly more beautiful than the Polo. Polo has a very nice front, front 2/3 and side profile but the rear side is too plain.
