Great review Sid . Fantastic machines from FIAT. Beautiful colors and pricing is good too. This is the car that can turn Fiat's fortunes (I hope it turns).

Sid, great review, as expected of a bhpian. Please post a review of the petrol(s) if you have already TDed them.

OT: Are the petrol cars not yet available for TD? Everyone seems to have gone for the diesel!

Fantastic review!

From the picures, interiors look quite dull

Looks dashing, especially from the outside, but inside is a letdown.
Very detailed review there Sid. Programs my mind to the right level of expectations when I go to the showroom this weekend.

Thanks Sid. It was a neat, balanced review. It is absolutely clear from your review what a potential buyer should look for in a Punto. If Fiat can exorcise the old ghosts of A** and parts availability then they are going to be an important player again in the Indian car scene.

Great initial review. Blue looks nice on the Punto. I think we have a winner here.

Nice review there Sid. I hope i can replace the GP for my Petra in a year or two. This car almost ticks all the right boxes. All the best Fiat!!!

Great one bro! A very well written and unbiased review. Apart from the drive (haven't had a TD yet), I agree with all of the points made.

Great Review Sid, I felt I have taken the test drive. Any idea about the delivery timelines ? Palio 1.3 MJD had almost a month of waiting period during its introduction.

I guess, we are setting a standards here in terms of reviews! Thanks to GTO and now Sid, we are providing such a balanced reviews! No wonder even after reading and re-reading all the other articles on Punto, I am still coming back to test-drive thread for our own reviews Thanks a lot Sid, this is a very good review.
