Frankly I doubt if the Spark or the i10 or even the A-star will come close to the driving dynamics and the handling of the Punto so if that's the main thing you are looking at, go for the Punto, but then be prepared to shell a lot more for fuel and a lethargic in city experience. As Latheesh recommended drive a Ritz too before you decide but I am sure that the Estilo will not excite you much if you have already driven the A-star. The A-star is a pretty good car but is not as smooth or quiet as the Spark or may be even the i10.

I personally own the Spark and have completed more than 4 Mumbai-Pune high speed runs and have never experienced any sort of instability or nervousness. IMHO Its easily the best car to own within 4 lakhs on road price.

a. Ford Figo
b. Volkswagen Polo.
