Default Fiat Palio Stile 1.6 Sport (Formula Red)

Hi Guys,

Brought home my new darling Red Fiat Palio Stile 1.8 Sport from Concord Motors. Paid the money and completed paper work in the morning and took the delivery at 7PM.
The PDI list was of lot of help, it gave me an idea of what to look out for.
Tough i did not need to take out the check list. Salesman guided me through everything.
Am pretty impressed with the salesman who complete the deal and delivered the vehilcle. If anyone is planning to go for Stile 1.6 here is Hyd then do vist Concord at Khairatabad and check out with Kiran(Palio salesman). He gave me a good deal od 30K cash dicount along with proper followup.

Traffic in Hyd was at its peak, it was worst took 2 hours to reach home(Kothapet) from Khairatabad i.e. 13 to 14 kms.

This is my first 4 wheeler.

There are not many that i have drove just a Maruti 800 as part of driving classes) and an Ambassidor(I loved driving this gentle car)

Engine was smooth and cabin was so calm. No rattels. These are the things that I have observed in yesterdays ride will come up with more as i get know my baby more.

Since it was dark i could not click lot of pics here is one the few.

I suppose it's a tiny mistake or is there any 1.8 palio around?

@RishiSuri - what exactly do you mean by a fuel guzzler?? what FE would you expect from a 100 bhp 1.5 tonnes car with a 0-100 timing of 11.13 secs and a top speed of 190 kmph??

by the way, congrats guyonblackybx for the beauty. wishing you many years of driving nirvana...

Just a request to moderators, i didnt knew there was other section "Test-Drives & Initial Ownership Reports" where this should have been posted. Can this post be moved over to that section now?
