High expectations from Punto pricing. Hope it does not disappoint like the Indian Cricket Team

All eyes on Punto pricing, FIAT wake up and tag it with a killer price. Couldn't take it any longer.
Hyundai where's i20 diesel ? are we getting the 1.4 CRDI ??
I expect a fight between Punto 1.3 VGT and i20 1.4 CRDI in coming months

Default matching alloys with car colours.

what i would go for personally

in white/red - matt black alloys.

in silver/black - chrome alloys will look cool.

cant figure out blue.

I was wondering when was the last time a car had so much waiting and fascination around it.Everybody who loves cars have a soft corner for fiat.No wonder it has won the european car of the year so many times but the award has ocassionaly transformed in huge sales and public acceptance.Now look at toyota which rarely is acclaimed by journalists or car purists but are acceptable by the masses.I sincerely hope that punto becomes succesful and starts a new innings for fiat india that desrves to be succesful.

Well the big day is here, BHPians seem to be falling all over the place with the building hype. Hope Fiat can live upto the expectations they have created on our forum atleast.

Keeping fingers crossed

I think the pricing will be very competitive, since it shares its platform with the Linea. I just hope the 1.4L petrol doesn't feel underpowered like in the Linea.

Good Morning Friends, I have just woken up and the first thing that I have done (even before brushing!) is come and post here to tell you that how pumped up I am feeling today! Team-BHP is invited for the launch right?

Hoping GTO or someone else from Team BHP has been given an invite, after all FIAT owe it to Tean-bhp and the strong FIAT fan base on this site.
Plus the amount of feedback and emails we have sent them, I'm sure they are reading these forums often enough. Free market research insight for them.
