    If FIat India Upgrade Punto's Interior(Mostly after 2013) (as well as Headlight/taillight) ,then They should provide this New Interior (as well as Headlight/taillight)to old customer too ( as they done , For GC upgradtion) by paying some small amount/charges !!

    If not for the bad perception/reputation that FIAT gathered over the years, the products(Punto/Linea) would have sold in decent numbers and they missed the trick by not introducing a car with 4-5Lakh exshowroom(diesel)

  6. Wishful thinking @bosesuman . But i agree with you that they should build a good ASS team as soon as possible , dont want to see such brilliant products go down just because of some unprofessional people.Fiat always had outstanding products , only let down by substandard dealers and their services.


    Grande Punto 1.3
    I agree on Palio point...by this they can BEAT Beat,Figo and Swift and Dzireee sales.

    I will suggest to rework on ECU firmaware and gear ratio of MJD.

    Even with short gear ratio,MJD lacks punch below 1500 RPM.
    Below 1500 RPM there is turbo lag in acceleration.

    See the FORD Figo. Gear ratio of ford figo is such a way you will not feel turbolag.

    IMO 1.2 version should exist. Many people underestimate 1.2 because of low 68 BHP motor.
    But people forget that 1.2 has impressive torque of 96 NM only @2500 RPM. At such low RPM.

    So remarkable drivability is there in 1.2 FIRE

    Bhai, I have suggested here to give 1.2 fire in Palio for City driving, same engine with small Car. Not in Punto, Punto is a big Car & need for both city & Highway. They need to use Punto as premium hatchback so 1.2 for Palio only.

    Palio:- City hatchback with 1.2 Fire & 1.3 FGT 75 HP diesel.
    Punto:- Premium Hatchback for City & Highway both driving with 1.3 VGT 90 & 100-105 BHP engine, 1.4 Tjet for petrol.
    Bravo:- Sporty & luxurious big hatchback for More Highway driving 1.6 VGT 120BHP with top notch quality, no Petrol.
    Linea:- City+Highway sedan for 1.6 FGT 105 BHP, Highway for 1.6 VGT 120 BH. 1.9 Twin turbo 187 BHP for luxurious Sedan, looks & design same as Viaggio ( badge it as Indian Linea EVO)

    Grande Punto 1.3
    This would get more nos in sales ... thus can strengthen dealer network in india
    Fiat should make aggressive pricing say..5.0 lacs onroad. The way mahindra brought XUV, once the demand rises we accept the price hike.
    Same in case of innova,dzire.
    Most of diesel car customers in india look at 5.0 lac tag. Thats why Vista,Beat are selling in huge nos.
    Tata is still making Commando like ads on its Veteran horse SUMO :).. Wondering what marketing strategy Fiat is planning ..
