Not good, not good at all. Now lets see what GTO and other mags have to say.

I also think ADJ got one thing wrong, Punto does have a USB port, see here. Grande Punto
Add to that from Zigwheels
1.4 Petrol - 9kmpl
1.3 MJD - 12kmpl

This is too bad. I hope this is not the actual case, else am definitely not going for this.

had just been at Concorde on mysore road. they had two test drive cars. on red petrol emotion and one silver emotion plus mjd.
they say the test drives would start from tomorrow, ditto for the pricing as well, but was told that the top end mjd could be close to 7L atleast.
Red is quite flashy unlike the formula red. the punto red reminded me of the red on the i10/santro/getz

some minor things that i did notice are
- there is no front arm rest,
- there is no reverse gear lock (similar to the palio)
- the space between ABC is quite more, in comparison to the palio.

I just paid a small booking amount and booked one though he did say that he will process this only once the prices are confirmed i.e. by the end of day or tomorrow morning.

You're the man mate! Would you also have the individual variant prices as well?

The website is beginning to show some signs of update as well.

The pricing strategy seems to make sense. More cheaper than expected for the lower models and more expensive than expected for the top models.
