Punto Dynamic costs 6.3L on-Road Chennai

+ Loads of features, looks,bla- bla, bla-,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

- AfSS, Pathetic plastics

 

Swift VDI ABS (need to check, but will be close to the above)

+ Maruti.period

If its my money, I will buy a Punto, Close Eyed, but Dad is insisting to go for Swift. What will be your choice and Why?

My vote goes to Swift.

1) Even if the Punto is considerably larger than Swift on the outside, there is not much improvement in Interior Space availability (Save for the better boot space in Punto though!)

2) Rubbery-feeling and long throw of gear shifts

3) Swift is better in fun-to drive factor.

4) Slightly better fuel efficiency

5) Better drivability in Town as well as in highway.

6) Even after 4 years of lauch, the Swift's design still feels new (Though I the Punto styling a bit more neutral, where as Swift has Like-it-or-hate-it kind of styling)

7) Maruti Service

8) Higher resale value of maruti cars.

9) Build quality of Punto is even worse than Swift, though it is a newer car!!!

Advantages of Punto:

1) Better Ride quality. However, I heard that, Swift's suspension was retuned by Maruti recently for more comfort. Any comments???

2) Exclusivity

3) Slightly better value- for money than Swift.

4) Feels big from ouside.

5) Feels more solid-build than Swift. But I have no Idea about reliability. Any comments??

@Speed: I think the Ritz may not be considered, since the USP of Ritz are different from both Swift and Punto.

The Ritz is more for passenger space and Practicability.

Whereas Swift and Punto are for motoring enthusiasts!!

My vote goes to Swift.
2) Rubbery-feeling and long throw of gear shifts

          helps in better in-gear acceleration
3) Swift is better in fun-to drive factor.

          only initial pick up
4) Slightly better fuel efficiency

           slightly means nothing
5) Better drivability in Town as well as in highway.

           Punto will make better sense on Highways' date=' highspeed cornerings are cakewalks
6) Punto styling a bit more neutral

            Have you seen a Ferrari Red Punto near a Swift
9) Build quality of Punto is even worse than Swift

            This shows your passion on Maruti & ignorance on Fiat

Punto is more stylish and strong and I will go for Punto [/quote']

 You have actually gone for punto right

Have you got your Punto delivered man

Do hell with reliability. Whats the point of reliability if you have a horrible driving experience, have to face rattles and look at that amazingly ugly design everyday. Swift looks like a fat lady on steriods.

Atleast with the Punto you know you will looking at something pretty everydaysmiley36.gif

Unless you are buying the airbags version I will go for the Swift, but in the meanwhile also think of Ritz. The interior space is about the same in Swift and punto save for the boot, while quality is not good in any. Also not to mention the smaller turning radius in the swift which makes it a boon to drive in the city. So unless its going to be for too much highway driving go for Swift.

Might I also suggest i20 Magna provided you can stretch your budget a little bit.
