According to Zigwheels, mileage is poor too

Petrol - 9 KMPL
Diesel - 12 KMPL

I am not sure how did they test.. But, it is disappointing.

Not good, not good at all. Now lets see what GTO and other mags have to say.

I also think ADJ got one thing wrong, Punto does have a USB port, see here. Grande Punto
its the other way round

Petrol 1.4 - 0-100km/h in 14.2
Diesel 1.3 - 0-100km/h in 17.57

Good find. Not able to get pricing information though and 360 view doesn't work. But still a great scoop at this time.

You reversed the timings. It's 17.57 for 1.3 diesel and 14.2 for Petrol. And both seem quite slowww.

Thanks for pointing it out guys, I have edited the original post.
And yes the moot point is that the car seems slow, too slow infact.

But lets wait till other reviews come out.

this may sound err ......silly.

just thinking about the names but i just love the word grande punto.

and i love to say it in italian accent " graaande puuunnttooo" lolz

have you noticed this is the one car which has two words for a name. i find it very cool. others are lame like ritz, jazz, lolz, i20,polo. well fabia is an exeption so is swifffttttt. but vista just show lack of imagination from tata designer boys.

Really a smart guy. I wonder how people can apply so many "tukkaas".
Great man, you broke the code.
Thanks. Website looks much better than Linea's
In PRICE section its showing Linea variants, cmon we want the E+ diesel price.

Smart work there! So you were trying all different URLs!
A little disappointed with some of the stuff in the Zighwheels review. I thought Fiat would do a good job with getting the turbo setup right on the Multijet, but looks like they haven't got it yet.. and the engines don't seem too frugal either! 9km/l, they must be kidding! Time to ignore that and wait for a few more reviews!
