Thanks KPZen, that 90HP Punto looks promising, but the interiors (dashboard and central console) still look a bit uninspiring.
I'm looking forward for the press conference by FIAT tomorrow morning

The punto looks really cool with the black seat and red stitches.But i feel 90 Bhp to be less when Polo comes with 105 Bhp.
Is there any 0-100 figures for punto?

The Transformers edition Camaro looks awesome. I wish we could get this year. Americans have to shell out just over 10 Lakhs for this(~$22,000)!!!
Can we have more pictures of the Punto Sport version? Looks hot!

are they planning to make the nano fly or something? JBL sure tries out some good stuff. the punto interiors arent worth talking about. but still its a good car from fiat stable.

Punto as usual looks stunning with exterior. But why diesel as sports ?
Why not the high revving Petrol :(
I dont care about the interiors as long as the ergonomics are excellent. Are there any changes in that too?
Looks like we have to wait til tomorrow to get all the specs and answers.
@quattroa4: I think Mitsubishi is not participating. I was also waiting for the same. Lancer 2010 with 1.8L MIVEC Engine. Infact I called up Mitsubishi today evening. They said EVO is coming in March and just No information for the other 2010 Lancer.

Thanks everybody in Delhi for the sneak preview of the Auto Expo.
The Maruti Eeco and SX 4, Honda Stunner and Honda Dio look like senior citizens awaiting their retirement in the motley mix of hi-tech automobiles on display.
The Scorpio seems to have been messed up with, as far as its ugly headlights go. The cowls and other add-ons on like the bumper, fender (mudguards) and alloy wheels enhance its looks a wee bit. The Thar's fit and finish are quite poor.Mahindra's favourite and crow grey,ugly, dash plastics show up under the arc lights.The chrome on the front bumpers show wishful thinking. The chrome will be levelled off with hairline and thicker scratches just after one trip into the wild or into the country side for which it is meant.
The Toyota Etios design is very conservative and very Japanese. The rise in the Euro rate has made them realize that their Japanese design studios can do miracles for them (don't know whether they took Euro design cues for the small car at all, but anyway these do not show up). They seem to have a please-all design with nothing revolutionary to offer and are quite adept in this department. The Qualis was the 1986-96 third generation and dated Kjang KF42 that rocked our market.
The Tata Aria looks to have a fine fit’n finish and is a chic looking Tata. The design cues have some reminiscences from the old Tata Estate of 1992. Lets only hope that the Aria sells well in the market and does a 407 to the Toyota Innova. In 1984, the Tata 407 had ousted the DCM Toyota, the 1.5 tonner, mini truck from the market capturing a lion’s share.
