Hello FIAT Racers....

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by srinath_1230, Jan 31, 2013.

  1. Hello...all...after lot of research and multiple test-drives of all hatchback's across the brands available...FIAT stood first in all aspects. In fact, I can say its value-for-money....Now, I am a proud owner of FIAT 1.3MJD (Active). Drive area looks like a cockpit....its really awesome taking it on road for a long drive.
    My recent long drive had given me an outstanding 22KMPL (calculated the mileage from tank-to-tank fill).

    For all, who are willing to buy a new car - consider the following (my personal investigation) -
    Only DIESEL hatch back's :

    SWIFT - > No value for money - Maruthi is driving this car only on the basis of there Service network
    RITZ -> Compromise with the SHAPE
    FIGO -> Better buy a TRACTOR which has lesser engine sound
    POLO -> VW pls sell the same version of POLO which marketed in EUROPE, Interiors are not up to VW brand name
    INDICA -> Body is very light, EOD...its a TAXI
    BEAT -> A toy car....59 bhp/3 cylinder engine/small car -> 25.44 KMPL is not a big deal
    MICRA -> A rigid RENAULT engine, but expensive


    PUNTO -> Un beatable in this segment....

    Welcome aboard mate. Very short and crisp review about all hatchbacks. Surely maruti cars are only selling for their ASS. Apart from that, car by itself is sucks. Ritz makes me puke and same is wagon R. Swift is OK but i hate it too.

    You have said it RIGHT, maruti is only running because of its service network.

    Anyways, CONGRATS to you....
