      what is the point of this car , how slow can it get?? What is the point of a vgt and such a unresponsive engine , horrible gearing (not a well thought car). I don't see the point on spending so much on the technology that car has and is gonna be so slow. I don't see the point ,

      Agree suresh ,it is got a very linear power delivery and never will you be wanting for more power anytime.

      I have observed the turbo spools as early as 1500rpm in the octavia tdi.

      Guys, there seems to be some confusion. ACI's report shows the VGT Punter in bad light, but BSM has just come our with a sneek-peek that says this is a good performer, with a 0-100 rush in 3.5 secs lesser than the FGT. Im not in India now so have no way of TDing the vehicle.

      Have any one of you been able to sit behind its wheel as yet? Mac, Franky, anyone????

      No, I haven't gotten a chance to TD the Punto yet. IIRC, even Motoroids had the same figures as ACI did. Neither OD or TG seems to have done their tests yet. Lets wait and see what they have to say.

      I have booked the test drive on coming sunday I feel its better for the GH to announce me as "The official Test Drive" person .

      The price difference b/w the older MJD Emotion pack with that of 90HP is around 35-40k.

      firstly lets have a small compare here . The skoda octavia which is a bigger heavier car with a shitty tdi engine has similar power figures abt 90bhp dunno the torque probably lesser than the fiat multijet . But the octavia easily manages a 100 o\in abt 13.XX sec.

      For 30 to 45k extra for the 90bhp, people buying the regular puntos should kick themselves!

      Actually as per my confirmation on yesterday, its 30k difference b/w the regular Punto MJD and the 90HP One.

      I will update my review on coming monday after my test drive on this coming weekend.

      I still look for a confirmation from "TheGear" to announce me as the "Official TD" person licensed to test drive new cars for GH

      The gear doesn't confirm things for you. it just's wants you to do it. and whatever The gear wants, it gets.
