    Advice Needed!

    Hi Guys!

    I am a proud owner of Palio 2006 Model I am planning to get punto evo 93 HP diesel variant. I have read good reviews about it. But only thing that concerns is "Lag" i have heard from many people that there is potential lag between shifting gears.

    Also after sales service in bangalore. Btw, please let me know avg mileage and performance of punto evo as well


    Please Advice guys!

    Hi Yogesh, welcome to MFW. Do go through the ownership threads on the forum, that should give you answers for the queries you have. Though you might not find evo threads, you can refer the Linea/Punto threads as the engine predominantly remains the same

    i did find many information regarding mileage.. my main concern is turbo lag.. i have palio and never faced any lags at all. I drived dzire and there was good amount of lag in it.. As this is going to be my first car with my own salary, i want to do a worthy spend for that.

    Do let me know about lags and if punto evo 93 hp model is better than i20 elite and polo.. i read lots of reviews but all of them are biased!

    Lag is definitely there. Won't say no. But I have no idea reg i20 & Polo. Did you not do a test drive? That would have given you an idea.

    Lag is definitely there but recent map updates definitely has improved drivability a lot. Bumper to bumper traffics any car is same.

    The lag isnt that bad and you can easily adjust with punto 90hp.

    Hi Yogesh,
    Welcome to MFW.

    As said by Dhans & Anandh Turbo lag is minimal and definitely isn't a deal breaker. IMO, coming from a Palio, you will definitely miss the 'Built like a tank' feel and drive-ability if you are to choose one among the other two.

    All the best on your purchase
