Guys Undoubtedly the Palio 1.6 Its amazing car to drive. The car scores excellent in terms of Safety, Driveability and Comfort level is great. Feels great on highways and well planted on the road even at high speeds.
I would anytime consider the Palio
Sad part there has been issues like Spares and service centres and after sales with fiat which has made its stars grim in India but now things are improving and it might be able to alter its goodwill
All the best Fiat

Palio build quality and ride quality would be much better than swift. Palio is a car for people who enjoy driving a lot. But forget about economy

Well how much one should expect out of 1.6 100ps 16v motor.
The figures BHPiens are getting are the best figures to expect from such a beast. 9 in city and 15-16 on highways. How much more so we want.

I've got a week old Formula Red Baby, my friends who are Swiftiens are already envy me & one guy is actually planning to sell his swift vxi (March 2007) & going for 1.6 sport after he TD my car.
They just cant get enough POWER, the only consolation they seem to have is FE.

but then, Who really cares? all I can say is OWNERS PRIDE - NEIGHBOURS ENVY

Default Shouldnt the Palio 1.6 be compared to the Swift 1.6 rather than the 1.3?

Itt dosnt make any sence to compare the following.

Stile 1.6 Vs Swift 1.3 Zxi
We should hold this thread until the Swift 1.6 Sport shows up here in India; the Swift 1.3 needs to be compared with either the Stile 1.1 or the Palio 1.2
