BHPians are so much in love with Fiats! First it was the Linea raining here, and now it's the Grande Punto! I guess 3 people have already booked it!
Anyways it's a great car to have and the most beautiful too!

Wow, i never expected an existing Swift user to swap Swift for Punto, but its cool as at least the car looks good and fresh compared to Swift.

Which version/color of Punto have you opted for ?

Please also share your buying experience with ABS motors as i reckon they are a new TATA-FIAT dealer in GGN.

cheers

Thanks everybody, it was surely a decision from my heart.

i got my Punto after day long hassle,i had to drive to faridabad and back for some work and the highway manners impressed me a lot,the biggest surprise was the ride which is even better than most hatchbacks like verna,fiesta and city.

As i have not driven my Punto much it will be very early to comment,give me a day or two ill post a detailed Swift vs Punto review.

This is my old car and new car,sorry for the poor quality pic i dont have my camera with me.
