    Hi,
    Greeting of the day to all Team fiat members.
    I have been inspired to buy a fiat car after visiting this forum. Before I visited this forum, I did not even think of buying a fiat car as any average Indian car buyer.
    But bygod!, you guy really love your fiat cars.
    Now for the introduction part. I am civil engineer (Design) by professional working in Oil city of India, Jamnagar Gujarat for India’s largest private sector company.
    By the way my native is beautiful coastal city of Mangalore in south India.
    Presently I Own Maruti Zen car-carburetor engine model which I had purchased second hand with the purpose of learning to drive a car. The car has served my purpose for last 5Yrs & I am looking to upgrade to new car.
    Keeping my budget in mind, I have zeroed down to Punto Emotion 1.3MJD-Magnesio Grey or Bronzo Tan-Aventura active 1.3 MJD.
    Advice from esteemed Team fiat members will help to decide.

    Welcome to the forum. Its always preferable to go for Top Variant (Emotion) in Punto Evo.
    Because of festive season, good discounts are also available, so have a look at Punto Evo 90 hp (Sports) version also.

    @Sand@ril : Bro if you considering Avvy Diesel then please consider Punto Evo 90 HP (top variant). Test drive both the cars and then revert as even though both of them have the same engine under the hood, their engine response is quite different. I mean, that the Punto 90 HP loves to be driven at higher RPMs whereas the Avvy 90 HP is more drivable at lower RPMs as well.

    Also Avvy is a mini-SUV types wheras Punto (75 HP or 90 HP) are proper hatchbacks.

    Both are fantastic vehicles. Whatever you buy, please make sure ABS should be there. If you are buying on loan, its always good to go for the Top End Model, especially when good amount of discounts are there.

    All the best and congrats in advance. :)

    90hp is above budget.It will not be possible for me to stretch any further.

    I can understand your fascination for the Avvy. How much is the difference in the cost between the two your shortlisted. If you can stretch your budget for an Avvy Dynamic then nothing like that. Atleast you will have the basic ABS as safety equipment. Avvy does have a slightly more road presence than the Evo.

    My preference - Evo Emotion or Avvy Dynamic

    You are welcome my friend. :)

    After the discounts, I believe Avvy would come more or less for Rs. 8,45,000/- in your place. If you bargain and get outside insurance, it may even come for lower amount. If your budget is 8 Lakhs, you can very much go for Dyanaic edition of Avvy, 'Because in longer period EMI, Rs. 50,000 wouldn't affect that much. Moreover, you will get the basic safety feature i.e. ABS and some other goodies which cannot have them even if you wanted to pay in future.
