Hello Fiat'ians! My dad's currently in the market to get a new car. Our 6 year old M800 has finally started to cause trouble after troubles. Almost spent 45k in less than 7 months. I know it's insane! But now, we have finally decided to replace M800, which has now done 77k kms. We still have 2009 Linea MJD EPK, which has done 55k kms, and are extremely satisfied. Owning a Linea since 3 years, I personally have felt how it feels to own a FIAT! The need of a new car is urgent. (maximum 2-3 months). Mostly would be used within the city, and occasionally for highway trips. Approximately, 650 km/month excluding highway trips. Cars considered so far: 1) FIAT PUNTO: Two 90hp's, same brand, and same engine, under a single garage!? Have extensively driven 1.2l for a long time, since my uncle owns one. Have TD 90hp 2012 model too; not the sport version though. No complaints on the Punto 90hp. Except for being criticised as 'powerful diesel hatch on paper'. Can we expect any mechanical changes in the 2013 versions of Punto 90hp? How true is that they are going to change the gear box? Could we expect a 6-speed or may be semi-dualogic for Punto 90hp!? Would there be any significant improvement in the performance? And the scoop came out, ABARTH PUTNO EVO ESSEESSE. As long as they price it less than 15lakh, would close the eyes and book as soon as it's launched. But, when??? The need is urgent (less than 2-3 months, as of today). - If they were to launch esseesse version by this year, would happily settle for an ALTO K10 now and then swap it. If anybody has any idea of the launch date, please let me know. 2) HONDA AMAZE: A shift from FIAT? It's hard, way too hard. But the way, HONDA has promised, AMAZE should be a stunner of a car with it's 1.5litre D-Tec engine. The specs are out. 1.5 litre diesel, producing around 100PS of power and 200NM of torque, with an ARAI certification of 25.xx kmpl! Seriously, this is a car that has to be looked out for. Even the reviews so far looks promising. OD have reviewed 1.5 D-Tec today. And the launch is near i suppose, i heard it to be the first week of April. Is it so? For the moment, i'm inclined towards the soon to be launched AMAZE diesel, and PUNTO 90hp. Please help me out! Any other suggestions, from other brands? And do share your thoughts! Thanks in advance!
