Q: I work in Bengaluru and need to visit my parents in Chennai once or twice a month. Which car is suitable for this type of motoring? I have shortlisted the diesel versions of the Fiat Punto, Tata Indica Vista and Maruti Ritz? Lakshman via email
AAA Go for the Grande Punto as it is the best of this lot on the highway and will make those trips to Chennai less stressful than in other cars. The Grande Punto feels solid, has a terrific ride and is very stable at highway speeds. It is a decent city car too and quite economical to run and maintain. If your budget allows, go for the 90hp model which will make overtaking on the highway more effortless.
