Between the 2 you have stated, i20 is a better choice
Ride quality fun to drive – Punto……….. interiors i20
For driving pleasure and ride quality gor for Punto. For reliablity and good afer sales serive go for i20.
Punto is the best car to go with as many have suggested and i20 has loads of equipment list where you can also go with that but both have respective issues:
Punto has A.S.S problems as it is tied with Tata which is the main cause for lower sales number but a good car to drive as others said here
I20 still has steering rattling issues where…[Read more]
y not take the swift good handling…if chauffer driven then i20..i20 crdi 1.4 gives a good 20kmpl
u could wait till both punto evo and the fluidic i20 is launched then decide
India probably wont see Punto evo in 2012. Go 4 punto aftr the jan 3rd upgrades. Fiat will have separate showrooms by 2012 end, service will be better. Tata service isnt bad everywhere, just ask fiat owners in your area. Punto is easily the best diesel hatch.
Thank you guys . i can see dat most of the votes goes for punto, but i have heared that it has really bad ground clearance. is it so….??
Now its 171 mm.. Also there is a thick engine guard.. Better ground clearance is sure after upgrades. Some websites predicts 185 mm or195 mm (GC of SX4 is only 190mm)!! Wait 4 jan 3rd.
guys booked i20 magna model. taking delivery on 1 jan12.
i guess the experience would be good.
you got it ryt mate…..how much is it costing you !!
638000 with insurance from himachal
Wish u happy miles mate. I20 facelift looks overstyled, better to buy current version.
When is the launch date of i20 fluidic ?
Dude check out the new Punto,quality wise any time european cars,its a rock solid vehicle,go ahead,I20 is the poor cousin of Punto,appears european but no mannerism of it.
punto has got zero resale n heavy mainatainence…so if u r rich to bear d cost den punto…..but at d same time i20 sportz has got awesum features,good resale n low maintainence.
dude i will suggest you i20 it has good features and sober looks and also hyundai launching fluidic i20 so you can wait for that option.
I would say,, you should go with your heart in this comparison I believe both are more or less equivalent…
A.S.S is only a problem for Punto, otherwise its the awsome to ride from the two..
i 20 obs …….coz aftr sales service is also gud in case on hyundai…….fiat-tata is a joint venture so tata ppl vl always gv pref on tata cars den on fiat on aftr sale srvce.
i20 asta with abs is better
Mr. Mayur, who told you that Punto’s maintenance is high. I can bet that it almost 50% of i20. Hope you would not belive, but you always can check for actual price. I am a owner of Punto and it has crossed 35K so far. I can say its a excellent machine. May be its a bit slower on red lights due to the way its tunned but its not exactly the place to race.
Mine is petrol 1.2 and I’ve got 23.6 kmpl as best millage so far on highway. But I’ce acheived 21 kmpl more than 10 times that too for 150+ kms. Best speed I’ve closed 170 kph.
On otherside, my cousin has Fludic Verna , I can braking system in this vechicle is just horrible. I am saying this on the basis of braking system of my punto. Also, F.V. has lot of vibretion in floor. In last we should say something only on the basis of facts. Don’t take words from mouths of others. Apply your brain , test cars yourself and then…[Read more]
Hyundai is going to change brakes and suspension in upcoming versions of verna
i think PUNTO is da best…..bcoz very good comfortable,very good luxury,very good safety & very good handling…i know A.S.S.problem with PUNTO…but u want long time use go with PUNTO.
You want quick accelarations and all kinds of gadjets, then I20 suits…. but if you want long time use and a highway speed killer, then Punto is something and i20 doesnt come close at all… I m suggesting you about Punto 90BHP model if you have daily highway travels… If you only have city use, take i20
bad choice… i20 sucks…punto rocks,,
punto ………. obviously …… coz of its high standards of safety as per European standards ……. and superb design …….. i am very happy with its calm performance …….. i also hav i20 but am regretting coz of its poor ride quality,comfort and its poor fabrics.
@Aditya Upadhya: can you please share your 3 months of experience with i20? i’m also confused with these models. i really liked swift but its 6 months waiting period is draw back for me.
Punto has some low quality plastics especially in height-adjustable seat belt latch and parcel trays. Steering mounted audio controls are offered only in top end Emotion variant. Rear headroom might be a bit of concern for six foot plus persons. Fiat need to emphasize on the after sales part as well to boost its car sales.
punto is a piece of shit….once it is got some prob ..it will keep on repeating…..very high maintenance….no looks….
People who have no experience in driving or know nothing about driving will say that Punto is pathetic. It is best hatch you can buy in india new model has Good quality plastics and it has superb gound clearence. And please mind it maintenance of punto is very low almost 50% low compare to i20.
someone said punto has no looks!! wow… rofl.. guys what do you say? do i need to add anything here?
I am amazed how everybody here has such extreme reactions about the Punto. In terms of design and engineering it is a cut above all other hatches and has the most mature (big car-like) ride and handling. It does have a few problem areas, like an occasionally inconsistent after sales service experience. Consequently, the resale value suffers. The…[Read more]
I say Punto will last longer and better than the 120… From my experience of driving the 75Bhp Punto, its a hectic car to drive in the city… Parking is a little hard due to the weight and road presence and the width.. 120 is nimble in city in terms of handling and driving in city limits… When it comes to highway, the Punto scores much over…[Read more]
well i guess people have extreme reaction about Punto coz they know what a true engineered car it is. and no offense but poor after sales service had nothing to with car but with poor management . Fiat has eventually gone away from TATAs… more over i believe in trying out first rather blatently saying its not a gud car..
I own i20 1.4 CRDI. Comparing a i20 with punto is like comparing a hovercraft with a horse. Although i agree that the pickup and acceleration of Punto is higher than i20, when it comes to comfort, suspension, drive quality and “The car-feel”, it is nowhere near to i20. Punto can be compared with the Indian cars like swift. But, when it comes to…[Read more]
Swaroop SP : Hey, please note that Fiat makes European standard features… That is Left hand driver foccued.. As for India, now the 2012 Punto is excellent… Better AC, Best in class ground clearance and the top model 75 BHP is at just 7 Lakhs with everything you can ask for a car of that price… Its not that I m against 120, but since the…[Read more]
Better check the cost of the timely oil filter change at the specified KMS with your friend’s diesel car… Just cross check the cost and find the result… I m very sure that Hyundai charges you the most when compared to Fiat and Ford…. VW is an exception… Its a car for the rich people….
Punto is much more heavier than the 120… Better stability at triple digit speeds… Its just not how fast you climb the speeds, but how fast your car reacts when you need quick overtaking in the city or highway… In that aspect maybe i20 is better…..
why a lots of people like swift ? why not like punto compear to swift ?
Swaroop SP : Sir first of al i will make something clear that Punto is well eshtablished product globally not i20 in many international market nobody buys Hyundai same as Suzuki. Suspension setup of i20 is so soft its not confortable next engine durability MJD is light year ahead of CRDi. So Yes i20 is good but Punto is Bes or you can say Better…[Read more]
i will book a swift vdi tomaro..
@Nitin.. How do you manage such high figures with Punto 1.2 Petrol.. I am unable to get more than 12/13 without AC in Kolkata city even with really control driving.. Where as best was around 21kmpl for me at around 70kmph in GQ stretch but in normal driving, its really hard for me obtain more than 10/12 in city where as 14/15 in highways !!
Hyundai Verna Fliudic is the best one to get arounf that budget and powerful engine is a boon on that car
But for a decent drive and decent features Vento TDI is best
if you need features then go for verna or fiesta …but i dont prefer ford tdci much n verna has some waiting period …. rapid has all the much needed features ie the essential ones only as well as an awesome ride handling and quality .
fiat linea fits perfectly in ur criteria take a look at it after 3rd jan
ride quality is a bench mark in d segment n has a small waiting period too.
According to me production of hyundai verna is stooped due to case by honda !!
it aint “stooped” get ur facts right before you comment
opt for the fiesta if you’re driving yourself
vento tdi highline
suggest me a good diesel sedan car
Rapid. Its the Vento under the skin but with the flaws of the Vento ironed out.
Hyundai Verna fluidic is the best in everything, others are standerd and Ford fiesta titanium is bit ugly from behind. Skoda Rapid and VW Vento looks like twin brothers
All are more or less good… now go with Verna or Fiesta if wants a sporty bit.. go for Vento or Rapid if likes simple and classy things And If wants both, go for Fiesta, as it would never become a street car like Verna…
fludic has way more features than rapid n sx4 but its waiting time is long i think , rapid has awesome handling and all the essential features sx4 di is cheap and it lacks power and cruze is in another class when compared to the other cars mentioned here and if you can afford it go for it …
you’re comparing cars from different segments…cruze is the biggest in its class…take the cruze lt manual..its around 11.5lacs..without the sunroof..but cruze definitely best out of the lot..wait for the 2012 cruze if u can
Starts from 7 lakhs onwards
diesel will start from 8lac onwards. Guessing though

nd wen wil it b launching aftr its display at delhi auto expo ?
yes after autoexpo ford may start selling
We’ll have a better idea after Jan 4. Ford’s likely to unveil it on that day.
less than 12lacs
XUV is lot better than Force one because its VFM where as force one is not and force one competes scorpio not XUV
opt for the xuv
”My pick if you want to buy a real SUV with a tight budget, then go for ‘Force One’.”
In that budget scorpio is a better vehicle not the force one
i have got a Scorpio, done 1 lac kms on it now…it has lot of body roll…drives like a boat…not like Force…dame stable ride
Time you should join one of the newz channels” on wheels”
Hi Anish, have you gone for Force One, looking for ownership feedback.
Of course not. No such case is filed by Honda. This is a rumor that has been going around for a few months now.
People r saying that it was on newspapers also.
Dont worry, its a rumour for sure. we heard this months back, and checked with them too
its a rumor…nothing else
Bro do u need any explaination or clarification fr a german VW car?
vw jetta hmmm but i dont like jetta it looks similar to vento x(
sikander any idea abt cruze?
Cruze is the best sedan when compared to Altis if you drive and altis is best for chauffeur driven because it has loads of space at rear seat than Cruze.Skoda Laura cannot touch cruze
buddy, a simple answer. If u love driving most then Skoda Laura is ur choice. Its rides well handles gr8 with gr8 performance too compared to Cruze. Only u ve 2bare with its maintenance issues(costly). Or else Cruze is also a gud option.
laura features r too less in compare to cruze ihave to pay 17 lacks to get those feature in laura :/
well, lastly its ur choice to buy. I too was confused b/w those two cars. But finaly gone with Laura.
which on u got k and l??? or rS?
@arindam: mine is TDI engine ELEGANCE AUTO.
cruze if you’re driving yourself if chauffeur driven then altis…skip the laura..
Cruze is definitely Value for money. I have mine for the last 2 years and the regular maintenance is the only thing I have done till now. All other times, it is just fill it up and let it burn the roads…
Do not buy skoda its a pain and too expensive to maintain.
Do not buy skoda its a pain and too expensive to maintain.
Chose to Cruze,,, company certainly picked the correct line,,, it has the feel if you are a drive freak… Laura is just car… if looking on options, you can check Volkswagen !
Cruze is nice car in the class.. and maintenence is moderate and performance is good, Skoda laura is also good car to compare with. But cruze is somewhere a strong car as it has got nice exterior feels like a muscle car..and no doubt its a diesel rocket..and i tell u it is true.
Planning to buy with a loan or cash down? It will change depending on the loan amount.
Looks like it will make sense to go for diesel. Here is what to do: Go to http://www.cartoq.com/diesel-decider/ put in the price and figures and car model planned, and running distance etc. You will get an initial answer. Then, click on Advanced Diesel Decider and here, you can change petrol and fuel price, loan amount, interest rate etc and get a…[Read more]
as of ur monthly running is around 650-700km i think u shud go for petrol engine cars. Coz 1st of all u vl save around 1-1.5lakhs b4 buying &in A.S.S.(maintenance) too.
Wt about resale value??
Petrol.. With that low running, you will never get the extra one lac justified, even after 6/7 years i guess…
annual running of 8000km then petrol…also can u mention which cars you’re looking for
Swift petrol !!
I’d say the Outlander, because: Rockford Fosgate Sound System, Twin opening tail Gate, Deadly looking projector headlamps, Selectable All wheel drive, more powerful, Cheaper !!
The Mitsubishi Outlander is a great vehicle, but the service network is quite poor. Otherwise in all aspects its a better deal than the CR-V.
