Wow that's a neat looking car with amazing photos. Congrats on the buy pal. How much is the FE you are getting now? Its a head turner where ever you go now. You are lucky to have a quick delivery. And now that the Punto is coming with the same engine hope the Swift demand reduces !!

Highways 16.1 and city 14-15kmpl. I hope it increases after the first service.

Haha, I know, it has to be the longest car hunt ever! I still have no idea how I managed to convince my dad. My mom is still recovering from the fact that my dad actually bought me a new car lol.

But yeah, the GP did mesmerize my dad with her charm too. He loved the look and features.

Thanks guys, a few more pics are left. Will post them by tonight.

Congrats on the car dude. Imho, the black grille on the active looks better with red than the silver one on the higher versions.

I think your punto has run the maximum on the forum, pls give us a detailed report, and some FE figures too.

Congrats Sagar,

The car looks vibrant in Red color.Especially with the black color grill.
IMO,High End models are little bit weird in Silver finish.
Just paint the OVRM cowl in body color.it increases appearance.

Congrats! First red punto on TBHP?

I agree with JayD. Why don't you summarize your driving experience so far?

Well, the Concorde folks are pretty consistent in their behaviour and attitude. Pathetic!
