The punto 90hp will definitely be cheaper than the i20 crdi, as the i20 engine is imported. Around 8.3 on road bangalore should be a competitive price...

Guys just saw the Punto Sports - with decals, white color, nice wheels - undergoing testing in Kalyaninagar Pune. Drool material.

Good find there. Hope the sport comes with both the engines, 90 BHP VGT and 1.4 T-jet. There would be quite a few takers for both these versions for all the frills that it offers.

feel fiat should replace all its 75 bhp MJD punto with 90 bhp, keeping the pricing close to the present FGT ones (approx. 10-20k more). This would make punto the best buy of all.

It must be 1.6 polo and not punto.a 1.4 Tjet punto seems more logical than a 1.6 now.

No, it has to be Punto as he mentioned, he was comparing all new hatches are all cars where present in the episod other than Indica Vista and Punto, then he mentioned he will do a special episod with Punto and the new 1.6 Punto is going to be launched in couple of weeks.

I missed this week's CnB due to SUN Direct's Satellite issue.

So was he telling about much anticipated actual Punto Sport with 16'' Alloys, Black Sunroof etc with 1.6 16V MultiJet - 1598 cc - 120 PS (88 kW; 120 hp) @ 3750 rpm - 320 Nm (240 lbft) @ 1750 rpm - 0–100 km in 9.6s - 190 km/h (120 mph) engine

Unbelievable and something new to me

Can someone post a online video link of this weeks CnB. http://www.tubaah.com contains episodes till last week.

Cheers!

Vinu
