    Sundar, we should be happy with what Fiat's has offered us. There may be 1/2 minor features (definitely not deal breakers) which you may like in other cars, but what you have got in your car is absolutely not available in most. Figo doesn't even have the rear power windows. Figo's windows are made so big (with glasses) to cut the costs on steel by comprimising on safety. You will better know about all these comparisons when you were in a dilemma of choosing a car.

    So just enjoy the drive in your beauty and forget about making comparison with a car below the segment.

    Yes Ramjn, some + or - wont be a deal breaker. We should rather focus on the uniqueness of Fiat products then it will be clear that Fiat cars are overall a better package.

  4. OT: You don't have to take your hand from steering to access indicator stalk. You can just flip it with your finger while your left hand is still holding the steering.

    Sundar, by 'Remote Fuel Tank Opener' I think they meant fuel lid opener near driver door. Even Nano has this.

    Screen shot does not refers to boot open from remote key, but only says "Remote Boot Open (Electric)" which means boot can be opened remotely (in this case from driver seat) by push of a button, not via mechanical linkage (or cable) as in case of punto.
    To get some basics rights, remote operation doesnt necessarily mean operation from remote key, it only means any operation performed person not being at the equipment. This can be perfomed with a wireless device or a wired/mechanical linkage.
    In Figo boot is opened throgh wired connection electrically and in Punto through mechanical cable connection. Both fuel lid and boot can be opened remotely in Punto.
