    There is nothing planned as Punto 2013, I assume you mean 2013 manufactured Punto.

    In couple of months, chances are existing Punto (as well as Linea) will get few upgrades, no details are available. So if you can, do wait for 2-3 months.

    Regarding, Petrol and Diesel, depends how much you plan to drive per month. Whatever hike is planned, if you drive more than 1000 KM, diesel will be economically better option. Plus, Fiat's Diesel engines are top class.

    Hi Rishikesh, I had a i10 ASTA for 3+ years now and looking to sell it next month and go for a diesel vehicle. Now since prices have changed for diesel, i am again in confusion.
    can you comment on what is the best , pertrol or diesel. im looking to buy punto 2013 diesel version. In this which do you suggest, active/dynamic/emotion.

    im usually drive 300kms per month and take it to my hometown twice a year,( 1000 kms to and fro )

    what all things i should be considering before buying punto 2013 diesel.

    Travis,

    Welcome aboard.

    1. There is already a threads related to Disel vs Petrol every where (Google up) and most of it holds good to FIAT cars as well.
    2. Though as suggested by Ravi if you wish to wait 2-3 or more months for a face lifted models, beware that govt. might increase some taxes on cars from next fiscal year. No confirmation yet on that front. Crazy govt. yea?
    3. Features and specs : You can find it on fiat website, couple of threads in this forum too.

    I think you can stick to petrol car, since your usage is less. But, things will dramatically change (on usage front and otherwise) once you have Diesel from FIAT :p
