@.anshuman

sorry to go off topic here buddy, but we need to call peace here!

button broken/not broken shouldn't be made an ego issue. if sid thinks it's not broken it might not be broken. you think it is, then it might be broken. no point arguing over such petty issues.

tell me something about your punto experience, and what makes more sense to you?? the 90bhp punto coming out first OR punto sport coming out first??
what do you think should be the right price for the 2 cars mentioned??

I do not understand something here - Isnt the 90BHP Sport a petrol variant thats being launched here. Then where does VGT come from (aren't Variable Geometric Turbochargers' only for diesel engines) - do you mean VVT.

If its indeed a 90bhp diesel then thats a good power jump from 68Bhp to 90Bhp. There seems to be some confusion as most people seem to understand that its just an addition of VVT to the existing 1.4L FIRE engine. This is true only if its a petrol.

Please clarify - If its a diesel 90Bhp then it does sound interesting.

Sir, you got confused here, Punto FGT has 76PS, Punto VGT will have 90PS, and there is no news of any petrol varient, Punto Sports is a Diesel car. And The VGT engine is not exactly of the current Linea, which has 93PS.

Sorry for bringing in another confusion but AFAIK Punto VGT is 93PS as well and it is indeed Linea's mill.

Default Punto Sport vs Punto 90hp

This is Totally Confusing.

Is fiat going to launch 2 cars
1) Punto 90 hp using the engine of Linea.
2) Punto Sport using a more powerful engine and lots of sporty goodies like the Palio Sport..

If this is true, thats great new. Come on Fiat.

Scoop Master please Explain.

Kya baba, everyone confusing each other. Dont confuse people by saying the upcoming Punto's 90D-engine is different from linea (exact PS n BHP figures be damned)

again exact figures be damned, punto has three engines currently: 68bhp petrol, 75bhp diesel and 90bhp petrol (same as linea). It will get fourth engine: 90bhp diesel (same as linea). This engine is expected to be available in two punto variants. First with emotion-pack and later-on with auto-expo's Sport(s) variant. No confirmed news on the fifth expected engine, i.e. T-Jet.

Seems like a lot of us are assuming the 90 HP to be the punto sports. Surely they are only launching the 90HP diesel for now and it is not punto sports. The punto sports may just be introduced at a later date for enthusiasts. Hoping they dont keep the silly stickers.

Any clues about the pricing? I really like this model range, of course will like to see a 1.3MJD 90HP in Emotion as well, but this is quite good.

8.5!!!

sure shot way of chasing away the prospective customers.
i think 7-7.3 lacs is fair enough

remember they "should" keep it below the i20 under any circumstances.

Well considering bangalore on-road prices are usually expensive compared to the other metros it should fall under 8lakhs.
