Planning to buy Punto 90hp

Discussion in 'Pre sales query' started by amiti, Dec 13, 2013.

  1. Guys, how is 90 hp 2013 different from Pre 2012 90hps, of course apart from increased GC.

    I have driven a 2012 75 hp and when compared to Pre 2012 75 hps, i find a significant change in terms of:

    Engine noise is muted in new cars
    The new cars feel very agile and lighter
    Great in gear acceleration
    Gearbox is smoother

    I actually felt as if the maps are changed for the new cars [remapped :-D]

    How different new 90hps are compared to previous iterations?

    Punto T-Jet may come in coming years at a lower cost but for now if you want Punto with a t-jet then only Abarth will be available.

    Chetan, following are my observations after owning a 2011 one and driving couple 2012 makes owned by my friends.


    • The turbo kick seems more pronounced in my car.
    • The gear shift was better in both 2012 cars, the gear lever did not have as much play as my car has.
    • Engine noise, I feel no difference, maybe I should use the soundmeter app and check.
    • Agile and lighter, I do not think so. The pre 2012 ones feel like a leech on the road due to the suspension and GC. Maybe we both are describing the same feelings but in different words.
    • Gearbox as I already said, I agree with you.
