Car looks good.. But I feel Palio curvy looks( only exteriors) still beats Grand punto, specailly door design.

Look closely, the Grand Punto has more curves/lines than the Palio and in addition the curves form a continuity with something (another curve or element) on this car more than the Palio.

Another car that can boast of such lines is the Indica.

Anyway I cant just imagine how this car's gonna be in Red! People are just going to Drool and forget everything else.

Ya thats a good idea.Try the 90 & 75 bhp 1.3 Multijet and 1.4 petrol if you get a chance.Also, if you can, do ask some owners if there are any reliability issues with the Punto.

Hi Deepak and Roms, will try to get my hands on a Grande Punto and experience the drive!
None of my acquaitances have Grande Punto, so I guess I will have to hire one and check out!
BTW, here the hatch segment is dominated by VW Golf, followed by Fiat Punto, VW Polo, Seat Ibiza, Toyota Yaris etc.
