There will be three engines on offer : -

The famed 1.3 L MJT Diesel
A 1.2L Petrol
A 1.4L Petrol

Fiat really want to become a competitive player in the market and hence they are planing a very competitive pricing for these cars.

The reason for the aggressive pricing it is that they have highly localised parts.

Engines have been loaclised to 85%

The G Punto is expected to ribal the Swift & Getz 1.3, wheras the Linea will take the fight to the SX4.

News taken from ACI, August, 2007.

My thoughts, good bye SX4 & Swift. I own a Swift 1.3DDiS with ABS, i dont like the way the car rattles and quality is not top notch.

Would i like to buy the Grand Punto? Hell Yes

Nothing shocking in those prices - they are in line with the prices of other cars in the segment.

All Delhi prices:
Aveo starts from 5.9 Lakhs
Linea starts from 6L
Fiesta starts from Rs.6.07 Lakhs .
Verna starts from 6.3L

Nothing shocking about Linea's prices.

About G Punto: Let Fiat make up their mind about launching. When it is launched we will talk about the price.

Actually i dont understand one thing, which is FIAT trying to sell as a Value For Money Car, when actually they should charge a premium and compete with the HONDA'a & Toyota's not the Maruthi's, Hundai's and the TATA's.

Its not good for FIAT, But defenitally Good for us buyers.

It takes courage to go against the crowd and to fight for what one thinks is correct. No kidding, but I am impressed with Diabloo's stand of sticking to what he thinks is correct.
