Do you need a diesel? Dont just see whether it is fuel efficient or not. Do you have the running that will help you recover the extra cost?

Reagarding jazz, i wouldnt compare the two cars. Jazz has far more superior quality, a very silent engine, though the MJD is pretty silent when you compare with other diesels, and a much more pricier car.

I would compare it to sedans. Consider it as a hatchback with sedan space, and you will see value in it. I mean it has everything that a sedan has except the dimensions, which is a boon for driving in city.

So if you want that, you can have the jazz. Punto is the opposite of jazz in space. The rear legroom is pretty less, sacrificed for the boot. For me the only reason to buy a Punto would be the diesel engine

Congratulations, a very good decision.

Even i would have gone for Punto mjd if i were in the market for a premium hatch. Jazz would have been costlier with less features and a petrol engine, so you have made the right decision.

Go for the blue of medium grey they have good contrast also black looks awesome . Even I would 't have gone for red it is flashy at the start but one gets bored later on.

Congratulations Abhigtr, on buying the Grande Punto. I think Blue looks nice because I have seen Grande Punto in Blue and it looks good. Black will be very tough to maintain in our city infact in our country. White and gray are too bland except if it is the white paint with pearl finish like the Linea's vocal white?

firstly congrats on your purchase. it looks real cool in red.

yeah i agree its got better rear seats than the swift and the ritz but definitely not wrt i20. the i20 has better rear space and seats are more supportive.

Abhi Congrats. Go for the blue since red is outta ur list. I sat in the GP and i surely didnt find the rear roomy. Boot space is huge . IMO they could have been better off by transferring some space in the rear.

The Punto should be a very good car and VFM. The top end model is loaded with many goodies.<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

In fact, this car has resurrected the fortunes of Fiat in 2004-05, when it was making huge losses and was down and out. Indeed, firstly GM bought a stake in Fiat and then the Punto emerged as a best-seller in many markets, thereby saving the company.

punto's refinement is just about ok....infact aci review says that mjd is quiet noisy and swift diesel still has the best refinement...if buying a petrol car you can consider the jazz though !!!!

already paid money and takin delivery tmrw and moreover i already used to own the swift  for 4years and jazz is a car where its not economically fit to be paid for the features and  not my vfm car ...so i thought punto 1.3 multijet is the best for me

I agree with Rahul- you should consider your monthly running to go in for a diesel.

By the way, the Punto is exceptionally VFM against the Jazz. The clever interior packaging of the Jazz just doesn't justify its 8 lakh + pricetag.
