    Welcome to the fiat family and congratulations on the Evo. Would like to know more about the research part which you did before booking the Evo, do take some time out to pen it down. Is this your first car? Do you own a car presently, which one??

    For PDI, do get familiarized by going through this thread.

    @Rama congratulatoins for Punto EVO :).

    I have a suggestion for you and I hope you dont mind. Dynamic variant of Punto Evo is not feature loaded like we had Grande Punto's dynamic variant. Now it has to be Active or Emotion IMO. If it is all possile then go for Emotion variant of Punto Evo and you will n number of featurs along safety features.

    Dynamic has the basic safety feature of ABS which is the minimum requirement. If he buys the Emotion, nothing like it. Depends on the budget availability.

    BTW one of the feature in Emotion variant is the SMART air bag & SMART rear wiper, what's SMART about these?

    Rear defogger and rear wiper, Music System, fog lights (not sue) are the few features missing in Dynamic variant which were there in GP's dynamic variant.

    Putting aftermarket music system and 15" alloys + 15" tyre will cot you around 60-70k so the different of around Rs. 1 lakh is negligible when you get airbags, OE music system, fog lights in Emotion variant.

    If budget allows then do consider buying Emotion variant.

    What is "SMART air bag " ? anything different than Grande Punto aribag system. When we say smart ,is that can we set the airbag open collision speed ?

    SMART as in dual stage airbags is what meant to say @Ganges. Hope thats right @ghodlur.

    I dont think there is any difference between GP's n Evo's airbags.

    I dont think so. What I assume is that air bag can be set to ON or OFF which is the case with the present Grande Punto
    Ideally should not be.

    Smart Air bag is understandable, what is SMART rear wiper?
