Got my Grande punto delivered on 20th October 2012 and by now it has clocked 1400 KM. Had prepared a detailed purchase description which I will post later. Mine is a 1.3 MJD 75HP, BNW Dynamic variant (absolute edition). Let me put down the likes and dislikes so far Likes ===== 1. Strong built. 2. Grabs attention with its cute look. 3. Perfect design. ( No afterthoughts in this car ). 4. Driveable gear ratio in city in this variant(2012). 5. No gear slippage so far.( I had this problem with my swift in second gear some times while cornering at low speed. Reverse gear in swift mostly required another clutch press after a release to engage ). 6. The instrument and controls are laid out well.( prefect design). 7. Mature road manners and dynamics. 8. Superb handling and braking. 9. Steering wheel is a great design and the hydraulic steering feedback is precise. 10.Ride comfort: Will never make the passengers uncomfortable be it the most bad roads. 11.Very Stable at high speed and cornering. 12.Interior quality: Improved and moreover strong and durable. 13. Cabin Noise: The cabin is super silent when compared to my swift diesel (2009). No rattling noise so far. 14. Boot Space: Sufficient for a family of 4. Now I can carry two gas cylinders than 1 in my swift. 15. Cabin Theatre lighting, Chiller A/C, soft touch button controls for headlamp level, fog lamps, illuminated controls, etc gives a very pleasant experience. 16. Front fog lamps are so perfect and bright that you can sometimes drive without headlamps on but just the fog lamps. Dislikes/ Area of Improvement ============================= 1. Driver seat ergonomics has not suited my 5'10" profile. Swift seat hugs much better and supports my body better. 2. The metal sheets at the lower front side portion of the front doors feels not pressed and hence lacks the solid feel at this portion. Any reason why this portion is made so? 3. Similarly the front portion of the bonnet also felt not pressed and could be easily pushed down if you press hard. 4. Skinny JK tyres for Active and Dynamic variant and meaty 195" profile for emotion variant is unfair. Active and Dynamic variant deserves the 175" profile.( Had to upgrade tyres to 185" on the day of purchase itself ). 5. Beige interior could have been tried out from fiat. The grey interior is durable but does not give a posh feel. 6. Reverse light is insufficient to aid rear visibility. In my swift the reverse lights were bright enough to make rear objects visible. 7. Windscreen washer nozzles are not evenly spraying and wiper blades are fading fast. Just replaced the stock one and this also have started fading. 8. 2nd gearing is too short and not quick in city driving to take speed. But 3rd gear is versatile.
