None of my acquaitances have Grande Punto, so I guess I will have to hire one and check out!

Rent one and drive upto the Wicklow Mountains - its a terrific drive up there. If you return via Dun Laoghaire you will get a small stretch of highway driving too. Nice country you're in - one of my favourites.

This would be my next car... no matter what! Ahhh... its beautiful, i can buy this thing for the looks alone.... I get the same feeling looking at this one, when I looked at Palio for the first time... not even a single line and crease is out of place.... beautiful.

Grande Punto will definitly be launched with 1.3 Multijet diesel, not sure about the petrol option!

Grand punto appears to be a gr8 Car . I have seen the car on the roads a couple of times, the puntos are being road tested here in pune though camouflaged in black and white stripes but its something you can't miss. I got a chance to peep in and sit I think if the pricing is right .... fiat might soon making a car which would give all the rest a run for their money ..

Grande punto was launched in the year 2005 internationally and four years hence we are still waiting for the car to be launched in India. Is it still worth waiting for? I do not think so as the model will already be outdated by then in other parts of the world.
