I have a new Punto EVO and frankly from what the average friend of mine would say (after the usual why FIAT) is that with the chrome and all it still looks better than the old one. They are the ones with the money and so FIAT must listen to them. Unfortunately if I was comparing the Avventura with the Ecosport and if they are priced equivalently I would go for the Ecosport. The Avventura would sell only if there is a considerable price difference with the Eco sport in our market. Definitely better than the Toyota Cross and the VW Cross but comparing with the Ecosport is a bit too much IMHO I am not questioning the judgement of the mods or the experts here but this is how most of India would feel. We put too much emphasis on ride quality and that slight difference is something most riders in the ordinary course of driving would not notice. The additional airbags, the bigger proportions, the more powerful specs (even if on paper) etc--which leads to brag value is something that stays everyday.
