This thread is filled with crazy heads all around !!! Are you guys trying to create a record of maximum pages in a day ??

I had booked for a TD, but no clue if online TD booking even went to their records, as I feel sad about the basic website itself without any details given. I was infact about to book an i20 last week, took TD of i20 and verna petrol, but somehow thought of considering sedans, so waiting for fiesta too. But now Punto seems to drag me back to hatchbacks again. Curiously waiting for the TD !

I like the Punto pricing though, well worth the wait and a much better package overall compared to anythin in the market.

Oh man, how could i miss that super rocket when considering the hatch backs.

Then the 2 powerful hatches are Palio Stile 1.6 sport and Getz CRDI 1.5

But punto is the best looking hatch with a better package offered

3 Adults can sit comfortably. But the leg space is the real concern. I think if the driver seat is adjusted to a proper position then there may be enough room. Just wait for the TD

The Palio Stile 1.6 is the only cheapest rocket you can own ever!

Good Luck Punto~

wohoo! Loads of activity on this thread. Looking for someone to summarize the contents in the thread, and put a decent review together. Anyone got a TD today?

WOW! Look at the anticipation and activity on this thread.

Fiat India - BRAVO! with the pricing. Seems to have undercut pricing of majority of the competition. How it will sell, we should wait and see.

I got a message from Balaji Motors Thane to come for the launch tomorrow. I think i will go.

GTO - Please give the masses what they want. We need an unbiased review and pictures. We will wait.

Lastly, This will be remembered as the day the GP was launched!! YAY

Totally OT - Happened to go to a Hyundai showroom on the weekend. The Getz CRdi is on offer for 565000 OTR Thane. Seems like a steal. And the rep there said the i20 Crdi is going to take some time to show up.

Go GP Go!

@shaju: Dude, don't compare the Fiesta to the Punto! Till the Punto gets a beefier engine, the Fiesta will smoke it when it comes to driving pleasure and performance. (and looks also - especially the 1.6S!).

It's moderately priced compared to Jazz and Fabia.

Fabulous pricing and looks. But enough to offset Fiat India's image in the common man's mind ? Only time will tell !!!
