1.3 Dynamic + Diesel: 5.53 lacs
1.3 Emotion Diesel: 5.75 lacs
1.3 Emotion + Diesel: 5.99 lacs

*All Prices are indicative and ex-showroom.

Well, prices look pretty close to what I believe is realistically possible. I believe there is no dynamic+ i.e. Dynamic option pack in GP. Even in Linea it hardly sells because the gap between Dynamic pack and Emotion is negligible.

The prices look excellent but i hope there is no compromise on quality coz the swift is also priced well but rattles a lot.

Guys @chennai,I and my friend will visit the showroom this wednesday and hopefully book one for ourselves..I haven't decided on the showroom yet,but prefer either Concore or Tafe reach @Mount Road..If anyone of you is planning to visit the showroom on the same day, kindly leave a PM to me..We will form a group,and if interested,we will do a bulk booking with maximum discounts(hopefully), certainly we can be sure the dealer won't play his antics on the purchase and on future too..
We have just a day inbetween and we have to co-ordinate ourselves by tomorrow..So send your PMs at the earliest...
I'm contemplating to visit the showrooms at around 6.30pm on wednseday..

Sure they have to compete with i20 fabia and polo but all of these would be or are priced more than the estimate we got.

BTW, anybody from Pune wants to join me for a visit to Fiat dealer on 17th after Lunch, say around 2.30 pm? Like "CliffHanger" said, we can form a group from Pune as well.

. the prices vary and so will the quality. for us consumers we need to find value somewhere in between.

Grande punto should target the market leader(read Swift P & D).
Fiat should price the car directly hitting bang on with the Swift, and then should give in more features to play with in comparision to Swift to tilt the balance in their favour.
Giving the same features at the same price or better features at higher price would not dent the Swift market share considerably IMO. And maruti is known to give in huge discounts to kill the competition.
Expect Maruti to react when GP is launched at competitive prices

My ofc is on SB Road and Pashan showroom is closer to me. I would not mind coming down to the other showroom near Shivaji ngr if we all decide to meet for the test drive.

@kpbhatt and @neoonwheels -

I think there is no Fiat showroom opposite Shopper's stop. We have Mercedes, Maruti and Honda 2 wheeler dealers there, but I don't recall Fiat showroom there. I think it's best to visit B U Bhandari showroom near Pashan as it's close to me and moreover there won't be any parking related issue there. How about 3 PM on Wednesday? PM me your numbers and I'll SMS you guys.

Thats a bit out of the way for me -- i was guessing the Tata Motors showroom at Wakadewadi would have the Punto -- you guys go ahead and visit the Pashan showroom. Will wait for your updates if i cannot make it

Punto's in all colors are at my dealer here in Delhi , getting prepped for the Launch day after. Got to see the launch cars and the press cars getting their minor scratches fixed. I saw blue, red, black, silver, and dark grey colors and the Emotion pack, the Active and Dynamic variants. The blue one with the silver grill looks the best to me. Can hardly wait for day after.
