What a pricing. Too good to believe, even considering their perceived A.S.S. If Fiat does not sell in numbers after this, no other Fiat will sell. I mean, I don't think they can do anything better than this. After all this is one of the good looking, well designed and high on safety car.

In fact I was also thinking about the same. How about killing the Indica and place the Victa there? Or continue selling Indicabs along with Vista as the cash cow.

I kept roaming in the markets and the pricing came out
Superb pricing i must say, VFM quotient even more here and am happy that people are already interested in buyin this car , 1 has even booked it.

Diesel emotion at 5.56 looks way too good and that too with the grey shade, killer car.
Diff between Punto Emotion pack and Jazz top model is almost 1.70L

People who buy for space, still Vista is attractive. In fact, in numbers (lengths of legroom, headroom, etc.) it is comparable to D segment cars!!

What I really want to see is, that inspite of the car being called "well priced" how many people will actually put in close to 7 Lac Rs. (emotion pack MJD) for a hatchback, who's back doesn't look great and the brand gives you numerous doubts about everything.

I am a big fan of FIAT cars, and would love to have a grande punto MJD (emotion pack) parked in my garage, but at that price, I would rather spend 2 Lac more and get the Linea instead. Which in my opinion looks FAR better.

That is unfair comparison between Punto Emotion pack and Jazz top end. Punto top end has auto climate control, fog lamps, alloys 15", USB and Jazz top model does not have. So, the difference should be around 2.5L if Jazz is topped up with alloys and stuff from Honda dealers.

JAZZ I think is competition to none with that price tag

my goodness, i cant believe the activity in this thread.

I went for lunch and by teh time i came back the pages reached 30 from 26, this is sure the day of car enthisiasts. I have been thinking to buy a new car from a long long time but i did not want to give away my ZEN just like that. And now punto has caught my mind completely and i have no second thoughts.

I am heading to Concorde, mysire road bangalore. Does the Hosur road has TD vehicle yet ot atleast display? They did not have it till yesterday evening i know.

Finally we have teh punto in our roads, kudoos to FIAT and congrats to all FIAT fans out here.. Way to go

Default Be bold

Fiat has been very bold in the pricing area just like what their website said

Fiat 1.3 MJD Emotion will kill Swift D provided they don't have long queues like our Maruti friends.

Cheers
