    freaking FIAT!!! Loved every bit of it.. have already started dreaming about it. happy that FIAT refreshed the PUNTO completely. Where as normally when we see a refreshed model in our country it's normally limited to few chrome strips here and there ..couple of stickers and little bit different head lamps.:uh FIAT this time you are spot on. I really wish that this should give you a some good numbers to back you up.

    Just don't screw it up in advertising and sales. Take out those shitty 'Hello Life' ads and bombard social media with this refreshed design and other unmatched features which your cars are offering from last so many decades. All the best!!!!:drinks

    Slight correction there, Hyundai Grand i10 had it already but a very welcome feature on the evo. Thanks for the detailed pointers Amogh!

    Interesting thought there Ganges. :)

    But sadly no. I am sure there is a market for automatic MJDs out there, albeit small. Also, the cost could definitely shoot up by 1.5l atleast, making it hard to sell in masses perhaps.:confused:

    In future there could be iterations of automatic from Fiat and Magnet Marelli (like AMT). That is a cheaper version and lot less complicated than VWs groups DSG. ( atleast to maintain, I hope :) )

    What is not known about AMT is how and if gear pre-selection works on throttle response/accel/deceler/braking or whether that is inherently like a basic criterion for automatics, like full or semi versions?? :-? :confused: Surely a topic for another thread.

    Finally one Fiat car is going to sell and sell and this is it.
    People are going to flock the deserted Fiat showrooms just like they did when Uno was launched.
    People are going to forget the badge and are going to be in the long waiting list asking what is Swift, what is Maruthi.
    People are going to sell their old Puntos and buy this.
    Older Fiat cars Linea and Puntos are going to get more respect and resale value.
    Fiat should price this below 8L onroad and sell the old punto too along side for 4.5 L
    Best wishes on your 4th attempt Fiat,finally you are going to succeed,am happy and proud of you.

    So that is a subtle hint that @Bala is refreshing his ride with a newer version of his love hate product. Good going Bala. Sometimes you look like socrates in your handle pic!!:)

    That was a good initial impressions about new punto evo. Did you get to know about the engine specifications. Any new engines being introduced
