If you want to know anything about the punto, polo or swift ask away. Note that I haven't learnt to drive yet, so I've no clue about the driveability :p

Honda Jazz is the best of the lot in everything but is outclassed by Polo's ride quality. Jazz is the most expensive of all as well.

I am not driving on Highways. The turbo lag on diesel engines concerns me during city driving.

My mom drives a Brio. Excellent engine, smooth and responsive. Steering is very light (too light for my liking, I like the weighted hydraulic one on my Beat). Ride quality is not very good, you can feel the potholes on the road very evidently. Otherwise a good car.i20 would probably be the best in terms of features, space etc. but the steering is vague and lifeless. not fun to drive at all. Swift has a good combination of looks, god drivability and decent engine. If you can do with the dated interiors, it is a good buy.
