And also judging by what most of us give top propity to while buying a car or choosing an overall car, the Palio comes out on tops.
The Swift will win for sure if all factors are taken as equal but when each factor is given a certain amount of priority ranking it is the Palio which comes out on tops.

Well,
The Palio 1.6 sport was recently relaunched again for sure and is not dead stock.
There were a few articles about it's relaunch in the papers.

I can confirm too that Palio 1.6 is being launched, I visited the Fiat dealer in hyderabad and they confirmed it.

I also spoke to their South regional manager - Fiat, he also confirmed. He mentioned that you would see their website launch with some media advt soon, hopefully this month.

Way to go..I am waiting to get my hands on Fiat adventure sports

Though i own a 4 day old GETZ GLS i think Palio ELX is the best choice, The only thing that makes Palio race ahead of the rest is ATTITUDE.

Believe me this car has loads of ATTITUDE when it comes to handling on the road at high speeds.

Now its very clear from this survey that majority of net savvy Indians wud go for a better product & will not be mesmerized by foolish advertising and all..they know what is gud & what is bad..

As of now 63% of guys voted opt for a Palio 1.6...but FIAT is not selling....just because common man does not rely on net for buying a car. Hence FIAT must seriously start a massive advertising compaign to bring back masses to their showrooms. Then Palio will top the sales chart..otherwise...

Thats why FIAT isn't serious about getting their website up and running.

There have been lot of confusion regarding Palio 1.6, and I see many questions such as is it really re-launched and is it really available?

I checked with Fiat Dealer in Pune today and it is indeed "officially" available. It comes as Palio 1.6 Sports NV model. Ex-showroom in Pune is around 4.97Lakh and On road prize is 5.40 Lakh.

In that case I am also voting for Palio 1.6, it is a better car than the other two.

this is a wrong thread basically...palio 1.6 can only be compared to sail 1.6...we cannot compare palio 1.6 to swift or getz..yeah but palio 1.2 should be compared to getz swift and sail 1.4 and for me palio 1.2 and sail 1.5 will be anyday better than the other two...keeping the driving quality and pleasure in mind
