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.
Agree with you, the handles are not like the modern pull type. To me the rear lights also looks a bit disappointing. The lights looks very small. Lets wait for more pics by tomorrow. As said my bro is in the press invites and fiat is flying him to delhi for the BIG Launch tomorrow.

guys -- looks like most of us are desperate to have a closer look and feel of the car -- call me crazy but we are acting more desperate than we were to meet our first crush during school\college days

come on guys, we have such a stunner of a car getting launched after such a long time, let's welcome it positively instead of fretting over minor issues like door handles and rear lights.

+1. We can always have "Niggling Punto Issues" 3-4 months down the line for such cases

i saw punto yesterday .it was in three colours at the stockyard of the company.red, black and minimal grey. i liked the minimal grey . l dont know about others but i liked the black interior and the black dials more than the silver dials of linea. the rear leg room looked less when the front seat was fully pushed back i am 5'10'' and my knees were in the front seat. but when i put the front seat to my normal driving position there was enough leg room .it may be because the front seat has a lot of travel to accomodate tall drivers.that said the leg room is less than in linea which i immediately checked. but the legroom is same that as in my petra cos when in pushed the driver seat back fully in petra my knees where firmly lodged in the back of driver seat.
then one thing that i didnot liked was that the rear seats where like santro .the person sitting in the back will have to sit straight they were not that inclined and the back support was less

Lets hope for a good pricing and excellent quality rather than cribbing over minute issues such as type of door handle.

The car simply looks stunning from a few angles! How thick can we make the tyres on a GP? This car needs big wheels!

Punto looks stunning in all colours. Red on Punto does not look like Flamenco Red of Linea

Alloys not that good, it has wider gap holes.

less than 12 hours to go for the launch
