Comparing the comfort levels (mainly seating) of Palio vs WagonR is not fair..Palio beats WagonR by miles in almost all areas. When i test drove the Palio 1.6 (about 5 months back), i felt it is a good vehicle when it comes to power, seating etc for the money we pay for it. But in terms of interiors it is not good. I didnt like the interiors and exteriors of the new palio.

I liked the EXTERIOR styling of old palio.

Smile Minus the interior, everything else I found to be plus

Hi!

I liked
1. Front Grille
2. Head and Tail lamps
3. New FIAT Logo
4. The ORVMs
5. The Overall new shape of the Palio Stile
6. The super responsive Diesel Engine (75BHP @ 4000 RPM)
7. The Power Steering
8. The gear shift (My adventure is much better though)
9. The ride
10. The AC
11. Silent Cabin (its diesel after all)

Didn't like

The same old interiors...kind of bored now with them!

Thanks

The worst thing FIAT could do is give it those 13inch rims with those tyres. This makes the car loose what its best at...riding on bad roads. I think this has made the car look just below the swift in terms of comparison. If you have had experience of driving a 14inch wider tyre back to back with a 13inch less wide tyre you will know what the difference is.

It's not as simple as that. A 14-inch rim fitted with a wide, low aspect ratio tyre will actually give you a poorer, rougher ride on bad roads (although it'll improve handling) than a 13 inch rim fitted with a high aspect ratio tyre like 165/80 that Palio comes with. Try fitting 185/65/14 tyres in your Adventure and you'll know what I'm talking about!
