    hi
    its already 10pm and you know I can't find the ground clearance of abarth punto in their website or anywhere.i m in the process of upgradation of my punto active mjd 1.3 unfortunately here in Assam where fiat should not have a service centre as sales are low. I have already called the local dealer multiple times with different queries and they never call back. I will get whatever I want anyway but just wanted to let you know the real situation. I even threatened them that scross is nearby. But noone bothered. They offered around 2lakh for my beauty quoting fiats resale value is very low. Really frustrating. I really don't like a rear mounted wheel so wanted to go for abarth punto. Want to know how much gc it has as i m in the north east and a 185mm will be enough for me

    The GC of the Abarth is 155 mm but the stiffer suspension makes it a fun to drive. It never pitches and didnt find GC to be an issue. I run on a much lower GC on my palio and still do quite a lot of off road drives occasionally.

    I personally feel its really low atleast for some cities. Even in highways i need to slower a lot to pass this potholes. I had a linea with 163mm GC kit later upgraded to 185mm.This happens to me always when there are total 5 people on the car or if the booth is completely full and heavy. My mother has completely refused to purchase sedan in future she clearly mentioned an SUV or an Crossover. @punto11 Dont go to what I say , this was just my review with my city conditions. Please check your city conditions and what all outstations you go and how often. If assam has great roads then 155mm will be good enough.

    I'm staying in Delhi NCR, so 185mm of Evo seems more than enough.

    Guys just trying to understand when all other car makers are providing around 170 GC, why we need to be in high heals , at least planning to downgrade mine to pre 2012 suspension

    155 mm of GC in Abarth doesn't necessarily mean that it is insufficient. It is the stiffest suspension that fiat India has provided which essentially means that it is better than a 170 mm soft sprung car. The pre-2012 linea and Punto that were known to scrape under full load had much softer suspensions.

    I have known from various abarth owners that the GC is sufficient and doesn't scrape even with 4 people onboard.

    Of course in front of a UC abarth, the abarth Punto might seem a little less practical but when seen in isolation it isn't bad at all

    is it possible to source the 155mm GC kit of abarth punto from FASS, do we have any issues in fitting them to diesel punto, also i am not able to get those part number.
