As the car car is running in period it would be too early to comment on fuel efficiency and performance but as far i have noticed swift was a better performer but punto beats her in all other aspects,punto's driveability is very good.

How about attaching a few chilly stalks & lemon to the grill, just to be on the safe side?

That is interesting. Which lights come as OEM? Please can you details of the kit particularly pricing and the colour of the light in K. Was it 4300K by any chance?

hi Anshuman,
Do post few pics of Interior and a few of instrument Cluster, Dash, Steering and all.

After all you are the First Punto owner on TBHP and should show us the car in detail.

Enjoy and do drive safely.

Punto has more boot space compared to the Swift,i dont have much use for the boot or rear seats so i m the wrong person to ask it.

Well thereal, after almost 20k km on the swift, and many many embarassments, I think I can tell you the difference:
- Swift: One decent strolley and an airbag
- Punto: Two oversize strolleys and say a subwoofer!
- Getz: Three oversize strolleys and a baby elephant

I'm sure you get the idea!
