Yup, it's 7.15L ex-showroom Bangalore, Crazy pricing. Bye bye honda, I would say. Hope the Punto is priced right and honda is taught a lesson. For some extent the Linea is doing good against Honda city though, I just hope they have killer pricing for Punto

I think FIAT has almost 100+ support/service center through out the country. Where as the HONDA has only very few city. Only Tier-1 and tier-2 city...

Over Killing Jazz price may Jack Honda

The Indian Punto in this picture is not emotion pk variant. Notice the missing steering controls?
That may be because Emotion Pk is equipped with SRS Airbags and any car that is equipped with Airbags would not have provision to keep things on the dash or else they will hurt the occupants in the case of an event when airbags tear the dash to inflate. Even a coin or a pen can be fatal.

I'm eagerly looking forward for this one hatch. This seems to be the last of the rare new cars that actually looks like a car.

. The Indica Vista might not be a patch on the Punto in terms of pure proportional harmony, but give it bigger tyres and decent wheelcaps and I feel that the house of the Tata's (if I can take the liberty of including Fiat in this) have the best family of "cars".

Maybe Honda has made it all that simpler for Fiat. Now, Only if Fiat could actually deliver a power packed knockout punch rather than a lame and feeble under the belt challenge.

You the man Sid! I just went out and checked up on Jazz at Pearl Honda near my office. Not worth 7.5L IMHO. The list is most definitely down to i20/Getz CRDI/Punto for me (not that the Jazz had a chance after hearing the price rumours).

Now that Honda prices are out, Fiat can quickly decide on the Punto prices

anyone have details on the final diesel specs and pricing for this car? I've been reading about a 77bhp - 1.3 and a 90bhp - 1.9. I'm really eager about the launch. Pity their website doesnt have details.
