    Hi Guys.
    I'm a happy owner of Grande Punto 1.3 mJTD 90HP.
    Recently I found that Grande Punto is produced in India for Indian market.
    Unfortunately, production in europe is discontinued.
    It occurs, that model in India have a few nice upgrade in comparison to european model.
    For example... a side mirrors with blinkers.
    This is the reason I decided to register on this forum.

    My name is Krzysztof (short name: Kris) and I'm from Poland.

    Welcome @Krzysztof to TFI. Good to have someone from outside India. :)
    How has been your ownership with punto?
    I was in your country last month, Warsaw to be more specific and found a good number of Fiats there.
    What is the current lineup of Fiat models there?

    To be honest... I do not like current FIAT lineup in Europe.
    Fiat strongly advertising the whole Fiat500 models forgetting about other class cars.
    500, 500C, 500X, 500L :/
    The only car in cass B is Punto but engine options are bad :/
    There is no car in class C - it used to be a Bravo II, but now, there is nothing.

    This is why I started to search across the internet what is the situation on other markets... and that is why I found TFI.

    The new Punto in India and Aventura look fantastic to me, especially the Aventura.
    I have no idea why Fiat do not sell this cars in Europe ;/

    Yes, in Poland there is a lot of Fiats.
    We are not very wealthy country and Fiat is always a good solution in terms of price/quality.

    Below, you can find my car and few updates I made.

    Glad to see you here in TFI.
    Your punto looking stunning. lots of additional options you have got in your grande punto. actually we get stripped version of European punto. i think fiat made avventura for the global market also. so i hope fiat will launch avventura soon in poland.

    Well, my car is not a full option, but still, it is relatively high option.
    (And I still added some extra functionality by myself.)

    When I look at pictures of punto in India, I can not see that India model is stripped version of european. For sure you know better all the details of all options available in India.
    Do you have something specific on your mind in that matter?

    Definitely what I can say... that India model after facelift do not have some flaws of european.
    1. Space in door panel is bigger, you can put there a bottle of water... this is something it drives me crazy, it's really unpractical in my car :(
    2. The ORVMs with indicators are so nice! I need to order it somehow in India. :D

    That's a beautiful punto you own @Krzysztof . Pure drool material. Regarding space for water and other items, irony or what, Fiats are heavily criticized in India too. The pics shown by you for stowage isn't enough for us :banghead:
