Nice report guys ! The photos are just amazing. Fiat definitely know how to build good cars. It's just their A.S.S. and cheap plastics that are a put off.

Excellent write up rudra, i would vote the linea to be the best experience of the lot!!
However one vehicle which would be sorely missed is the Palio 1.6!

That was an awesome write up.

Hope FIAT gets its deserved due in India. Their service is definitely improving (atleast in Chennai)

Best wishes to FIAT

Fantastic pictures and review as well sir.If could have known you two are coming down to Ahmedabad, surely would have atleast met you for a min or so at your hotel or at Aspi motors.Good to see Teambhp invited,maybe more owners over here and more feedbacks to them.Any news from Fiat coming out with another engine option for Linea and Punto?

Rudra, A great write up, with all ingredients of wit, information, and experience. I believe you should be happy for not getting any calls from office during your off time. Its just the lucky few in this world enjoy this luck.

Did not know that you guys were there.
Anyway, do i need to say it again, Wonderful Pictures!!

beautiful snaps dudes especially of that blue punto. Sad to see that gem of car Palio is not selling.

On a contrary note, look at swift, getting sold twice as many RItz.

and imagine if FIAT can offer Punto with F500 like interior and a 1.4 TJET or say 1.6 MJD VGT

This will scorch the indian roads for sure.

FIAT please offer us cars with better interior and A.S.S

@ Rudara

which DSLR u had used?

The pictures are absolutely breathtaking, Rudra! That the cars are good looking only adds to it I could tell you & Jaggu had an absolute blast when I came by to receive you guys at the finish line. Excellent report, look forward to many more in the future.

Agreed on the Blue Punto. Never seen this colour till date, but I'd rank it right up there with red (my personal favorite).

Lets do this drive again when the Linea / Punto get more power

*Gives 5 star thread rating*

Refreshing report Rudra & Jaggu! The images were stunning.

Great to know that TBHP is right up there with the big TV channels. Since this is an open online forum, this will always remain the most neutral medium for automobile information. Cheers to TBHP!

Some quick questions:
01. Did you find these cars underpowered?
02. Any information about new engines and upgrades?
