    +1 to what Srikant have said. The launch seems to be near - roomers indicate a Jan 1st week launch. If you do not like the new one, you can always bargain for more deals on the old one. So, I suggest you wait - it is a win-win situation.

    Wait for the new one, major changes are new dashboard and increased ride height by using spacer nut. The new car should reach the showroom by Jan 1st week.

    My suggestion is that you wait for the new model. You can always negotiate later for the 2011 models in case there is not much difference. AFAIK, the new Punto shall have a ground clearance of 185 in addition to beige interiors. It is definitely worth waiting for the 2012 model

    185 , are u sure mate? No other hatch have 185 mm Gc , 170 mm is good , extra Gc will spoils the looks of Gp....( almost hatches have max ~170-173mm gc )

    At 185mm , car may not be much stable as have now + for 185mm , they needs atleast 16-17' alloys wheels, which increases cost of Gp lot ( i like to see T jet engine in Gp :) )

    It is good to wait for the new version. But please keep one thing in mind. It is more likely that the prices may go up or at the least there will not be any discounts on the new model. One more news what I heard was there wont be Emotion Pk anymore. All the features will be available in Emotion. So the base variant active also gets loads of features like stereo, power windows etc etc.There will be lots of chrome in the interiors. Got this info from a trusted source. But even he is not exactly sure what all to expect.

    I think , fiat should give all safety features in all models ( base to top ) like honda do..
    Fiat needs to do that , then only peoples will looks fiat cars as VFM.

    I dont think so the GC would be 185mm.Max it would be 175mm.Anything more than that applies for a 4x4 or SUV.


    Wait for the 2012 punto!!

    Word has come from the horses mouth - cannot quote the sources, however sources may be mistaken.

    As far as price increase goes my guess is that the price shall be raised by some 2 to 4% - but still it would be less than the existing price. Reason being that the higher model features are being provided in the lower model. At this point of time, no company can hike prices by too much. So the net effect would be that emotion pack would be available at emotion prices with a hike of say 2-4% of the emotion price. This price would still be less than the emotion pack price.

    I am not sure what would happen with the price of 90 HP or the TJet, but my guess is that both of these should see a price reduction
