I did not like the alloys either, but somehow in that light grey shade i felt it looked good.

Waiting for tomorrow, biting my nails.

I will reserve my opinion abt the grey Punto till i see it in flesh as i have a feeling that it looks better in the pic posted than in real life.

People choosing Red ,Blue,Silver,Black and White will not regret at all

Rarely do you see a car appeal to you in so many colors as per the standard release .

Dark grey is awesome! Should be a hot selling colour.

The reverse fog lamp is at an awkward position though.

Disappointing it doesn't have pull type door handles. Most of the modern hatchbacks have, and it does help give an upmarket feel.
The rear of this car looks quite bulbous. Not to my liking at all. But i guess to each its own.

P.S. Punto is my 7 yr old nephew's favourite car in Colin Mcrae Dirt racing.

This is exactly what I also noticed as first impression. No Pull away handles!!
