    I spoke to the dealer today and he confirmed people are not making fresh bookings at this price and that discounts will kick in during late Feb/early March.

    I am uncertain about the variant, I can afford the Active (the 2011 dynamic) but i am against black door handles and Rear View Mirror.
    Can somebody confirm if the 2012 Active has body colored or black door handles?

    Also, what else is missing on the 2012 Active? It's hard to compare 2011 and 2012 models.
  3. 2012 Active has black door handles ( old dynamic also had black) . Rear power window is not available on Active 2012 ( is was there on dynamic 2011) . If you have been following my thread I booked Punto emotion 2011 yesterday. Your case also looks same to mine . I would advice you to go for the older vehicle if its available , have you checked with your dealer. As of yesterday I can confirm that there were 3 Punto's left in Punto factory, 1 Punto dynamic BNW, 1 medium silver emotion, 1 exotica red emotion pk.

    Source: Yesterday during booking my dad wanted confirmation whether red punto emotion ( Red color was preferred) . Sales executive opened his mail & showed the excel sheet that Fiat sends to him daily having information of stocks in the factory.

    Change is not very noticeable, I drove both cars back to back yesterday, but turning radius change is evident which would be helpful to you considering you are just learning to drive.

    Is the 90 HP also a 1.3 Liter Engine or more? Doesn't Fiat have anything in a 1.6 or above at the moment? Thought I saw a Palio 1.9

    90HP is a 1.3MJD with VGT where as 76 bhp is MJD with FGT. That's the only difference.
