I get 13.5 on my palio 1.2 nv with 100% AC on. I do not think any other car in that segment gets the same mileage as I am getting. And I own a PALIO.

Looks more like a ribbon or a tape. Dunno what purpose it serves other than like a gift wrap for a new car.

Can you please let me know what these are? One is speculated to be Grande Punto. I am clueless about the other launch.

Tata Group is supposed to be keen on Fiat launching an Alfa Romeo model.

Fiat can't do this to us! Where did you get the information that the Grande Punto is not coming? Is it from a confirmed source? Both Fiat and Tata are very clear that Grande Punto will be here by 2008 and news reports suggest Fiat is already working with their vendors to make the Grande Punto at affordable prices. I even read somewhere that Fiat are re-working the bumper as the car exceeds the lower excise requirements by about 4 cms. Sorry for going off topic on this thread.

OK. Still continuing off topic....
I did a bit of research and it looks to me that Fiat India will launch the Punto "Grande" which will be launched in Brazil. But Brazil's version of Punto "Grande" is based on the Fiat Idea platform, which in itself is based on the platform of the older Punto. So, in effect, you will have the platform shared by the older Punto and the car will be Grande Punto.

If this thread is no longer be followed, I might post it the main forum.
Hi! Nishant. You can get in touch with a car interior company called Morfeus. Website http://www.morfeusdesign.com/. In have seen their work in Honda City and they are damn good. The costing is between 40-50 grands. They do the following
1. Composite/Pure Leather seats
2. 2 tone dash board
3. Wood finish interiors, which is centre console, door handles, power window switch panel etc.
4. Leather finish door pads
5. Hood carpet (same as the interior's colour)
6. Floor carpet
7. Leather + wood finish steering wheel
8. Leather finish centre console of the steering wheel

They take about 3-4 days to do the entire job and offer warranty 2-3 years on their job.

I hope it helps

Hey folks,

Is FIAT still selling Palio Diesel? If yes, how good is the diesel version compared to 1.6 sport?

Hi All,
Has anyone installed a CNG or LPG kit in a Petra or Palio?

Are there any compatibility issues?

Considering that Petra is 100bhp, I guess there won't be a very significant drop in performance after installing the gas kit.

Note: I am posting in this thread because I didn't want to start a new thread for this query
