In that particular question, the person had asked for choices of petrol vehicles within a budget of 8L. I had chosen Punto 1.4 Emotion and Fiesta Classic Titanium 1.6. The diesel Punto cannot be considered purely being a diesel as the choice was to be made between petrol vehicles. The TJet – Older stock is all sold out and the new does not seem…[Read more]
