Will post the feedback I get. BTW is the Palio drive similar to the Punto ? Is it also the 75 Bhp version ??

Cheers
4.49 lac is the onroad in Bangalore for the SDX. so, up at north, it could be anywhere between 4-4.2lac. 3.89 is the ex-showroom for a 2010 made SDX. If it was a 2009 make, ex is 3.59lac and if it was a 2008, ex is 3.29lac. Check it out. A drive in Palio and Punto should definitely differ and in my opinion shouldnt be compared.

@Lloydofcochin: Any update from your side? Did you decide to book?
Karthik,

I spoke to the Prerana guy yesterday and he has confirmed that the bookings are still possible. I have E-mailed the lease guys to get the quotations.

Cheers
Lloyd

Parimal, don't tell me you are opting for Palio MJD??

Are you sure you want to live with the phased out piece at this stage when you have a new car in its place(Punto). Agreed its 1.5L costlier but you would be driving a new tech car

What about 1.6 petrol , its still available?
There was 1 piece of 1.6 Sports 2010 model in minimal grey shade available in 3.7L Ex

Its one heck of a cheap rocket one can own in this time..

Check with FIAT ups if its still there or sold!

If the 1.6 is available in Bangalore, please let me know as a few friends would be interested. 100BHP is too much to resist especially if it is priced 3.x lacs

Ha ha Agreed but ,drivability is far better in palio Multijet,and savings of almost 2l is irresistible on the same engine.Dont know why but it feels more powerful also. Space is almost same.

Default SDX or Pre-owned Logan DCi DLS

Hi,

Is the Palio SDX still available in Chennai at 4.2 lakhs OTR?

Which is a VFM buy - a 2010 Palio SDX at 4.2 OTR or a pre-owned 2007 Logan DCi DLS single owner 32k KMS?

My current drive is a Palio 1.2 ELX.

Thanks & regards,

Sparkglow

Exclamation Dhamaka Palio

Folks, As vigneshram has mentioned in Pg1 of this thread, I'm one among those 9 to have got the Palio MJD. Infact, we got 2 cars in our family in the offer.

Both are 2008 manufactured Stile SDX Ozone Blue. The price we got for it is Rs.3,66,600/- (on-road Coimbatore).

The car also comes with 4 years extended warranty, 4 years road-side assistance and free insurance.

Now, as many of you are aware, I can confirm from our sources that the Palio Stile SDX is now made on order with an on-road price of Rs.4,22,000 in Coimbatore. Available in 4 colors of the Punto and with the same free-bees, ie., 4yrs extended warranty, 4 yrs road side assistance and free insurance. The waiting period is 30 to 45 days.

Some pics:

^^ H14: Thats a stunning SDX. Great to hear that 2 cars were brought in your Family. Is the other Palio same in color? Please do post pics of the other Palio if available

@Sparkglow: Its a choice you need to make now. In my opinion, a new Palio is better than any used diesel car that costs on the same lines. This said, please keep in mind the issues you may have like non availibility of spares, resale value and so on. If you are very passionate about Fiats/Palios, it should be an easy decision to make.

For booking,Rs.50K as advance and the car will be delivered within 60 days.
As mentioned earlier,all punto colors are available except special colors and some other colours.But not clear though.

Final cost will be around 4.2 L only.
Great buy
Am happy that someone is getting benefit out of this thread .When are you booking it?
