    Oh!! I meant that they have added some of the "hidden" features to the brochure. Otherwise the brochure we saw earlier had minimal features.

    Central locking was already there in Dynamic variant. Dynamic is a highly under rated variant.

    Have they removed DTE and Instantaneous consumption altogether from Active variant??

    The site shows DTE and Real time - mileage indicators have been removed from both the active and dynamic variants !!!

    FIAT is cutting more & more features as the model is becoming old. :A

    One day GP Active will be avialble only with Power Steering & AC like Maruti Swift LDi ::OO

    I think Fiat is doing the correct step. !.2 Engine is a underrated one.It is more than sufficient for indian roads. If fiat can tune it to 70 HP and 100NM it will be better for overcoming the psychological barrier. 1.2 Fire engine is very popular in Europe.

    If the price goes high Fiat will again loose the market share indeed.

    why is that prices are not yet updated? Why is it taking almost more than 3 days to update the same?

    @basis- Fiat can not price Punto close to the FIGO.
    FIGO does not have even half the features of Punto. I hope you know that it is based on a 10 year old Ford Fiesta platform.

    Even a 9 lacs Honda City does not have these many features (as those of Punto).

    Yes PaddleShifter,

    I agree with you.

    The fact is Punto in form of 1.4 E, 1.4 E+, 90 HP, 1.3 E,1.3 E+ looks more potential then other variants. If they stop 1.4E then Fiat may loose a good market as most hatchback buyers look for a car within 6.5 L .

    Due to no tax hike in the 2011-12 Fin. many car companied giving good discount including Honda.

    Why Fiat should increase the price?
