Super prices :drool:
Now I am just hoping that the zigwheels got the review wrong . I mean 18 secs to 100 and FE of 12 !!!! These are doubtful figures.

I really hope they got it wrong, and if they have then I swear I'm never gonna read zigwheels again.

Amazing pricing for the Diesel as well as for the petrol guzzlers. Another winner from Fiat followed by Linea? Waiting for a detailed review by GTO...

I would say this is very clever pricing by FIAT.

This is a one car which can take on wide range of cars (A-star, i10, Ritz, Swift, i20 and Jazz). It's pretty much like fiat is eyeing the golden midpoint from variety of cars.

Fiat has priced GP excellently. My vote for the best bang for the buck is the 1.3 MJD Emotion at 5.56 lakhs.

Is it then goodbye Palio MJD?

Hi guys, this is amazing pricing! I think I am very much in the market for Grande Punto now! Did anyone register on the website for a test drive- and for those who did, has anyone got a call/email in reply?
