    I guess there is a wide spread displeasure regarding not much done/addressed/improved issues w.r.t punto gear ratios/retaining old engine specs (not plonking 1.5/1.6L MJD) among the prospective buyers! which would have made, Punto a very hard to resist offer from FIAT from a facelift option. FIAT did a lot for upgrade to exterior/interiors as part of face lift and missed some commonly raised issues w.r.t punto gear ratios/old spec engines.

    Guess, this response will make FIAT re-think about Avventura specs if these issue also remain in Avventura, and could force FIAT to also alter the launch plans of Avventura. I guess with VW plonking 1.5L TDSi has already affected Punto and upcoming I20 will also have its impacts. I hope the Punto face lift will not be shadowed with these events and resulting in same old sales figures despite a extensive all-new facelift effort by FIAT. Guess , now FIAT is under pressure regarding pricing the Punto aggressively with all these events.:confused:

    I feel the prices will start with 4.90 lakhs for petrol and 5.70 lakh for diesel both (ex showroom) to keep the prices below the the competition.

    If Punto Evo sells good numbers ,it is good and if not, it is still better :D.I guess only the failures would make FIAT India to rethink what the heck Indians' expectations are and reconsider their strategies for our market.There is always a hope for FIAT but they cannot just explode the market just like Renault did with Duster or Ford with Ecosport (Like some people say).It is like expecting our team to win a test series on Australian soil ! To my knowledge ,no other auto company has created such a havoc in peoples' trust in the past like Fiat did and getting back Indians' confidence is such a Hercules thing. Punto Evo will sell in good numbers (2k !) but on its own league with no competition !

    The reason being we have been seeing most of the things with Italian eyes ;) but a common buyer would go gaga over it.I have heard from the same people that they see Linea and Punto like bulged egg eyes and blunt faces.Anything by MS,H,H will sell these days with VFM proposition or atleast projected in that way.You may have to see the Mobilio interiors and the price they are asking for it and you will feel better about this i20 design :p.I am sure this will overshadow new polo or punto or even an Alfa Romeo because Hyundai will provide features that mindblow a common buyer who mostly will not be aware of the core characteristics of a car.
