I have observed this and thought it was only a change for illustration purpose.

The brochure does confirm music streaming via Bluetooth. I guess this should bring some cheer for the ICE folks. Now to find out if mp3 folder navigation is easier and if they have put in better speakers. I highly doubt on the speakers.

The speedometer numbering continues to be different from a Fiat Evo Punto.

They've even painted the whole room red. Poor journalists. Someone tell FIAT India not to go overboard with the red theme.

Prices Out: 9.95 Ex Showroom Delhi for Both Punto and Avventura Abarth. Was hoping for something closer to the 9.5L Ex Showroom at the max

Would take it above 10L Ex-Showroom in Bangalore, which means higher taxes and would take it to approximately ~12.5 L OTR Bangalore. Looks like a niche product will become even more Niche for folks in Bangalore/Karnataka. A full ~2L more than the GT TSI.

A little disappointed. I wish they considered the fact that in states like Karnataka a >10L Ex-Showroom would shoot up the OTR price. An Ex-Showroom lower by ~20K at least would have ensured the Ex-Showroom would remain under 10L in almost all places.

Unless it is a uniform Ex-Showroom like Maruti did with the S-Cross (specific variants I think)

Fiat Punto Evo priced at 9.95L ex-showroom Delhi. Priced decently I must say. It is absolutely Value for money if you consider the power, handling and safety, not to forget exclusivity.

So, FIAT did manager to stick to their words. Superb pricing. I hope they will follow the one Ex Showroom price pan India strategy.

Now, the wait starts for the first drive reports to pour in and the TDs to start.

Or atleast keep the prices within 9.99L everywhere, because many states have a higher tax structure if the figure touches 10L ex-showroom.

I feel the pricing is a bit on the higher side. 2.6L above 1.4 FIRE Emotion and 2.24L above 1.3 90HP diesel. The Linea Emotion T-Jet is ~18 grand cheaper.

Avventura seems to be a better deal with just 1.29L over 1.3 90HP diesel.

Is the suspension and engine tuning worth the premium? Reviews will tell
