    Fiat India launched the Punto 90 HP version here in New Delhi today. The more powerful version of the Punto diesel has been priced at Rs 6.79 lakh ex-showroom Delhi (see prices for the Punto 90 HP below).

    Powered by an 89 bhp 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine, the Punto 90 HP borrows its engine from the Linea and is some 15 bhp more powerful than the existing 75 HP Multijet diesel engine found in the hatchback. This has been possible thanks to a re-tuned engine that also boasts of a variable geometry turbocharger instead of the fixed geometry turbocharger found on the 75 HP.

    This makes the car about 3.8 seconds quicker to 100 kph than the regular 75 HP car and it boasts of a top speed that is 10 kph higher than the regular car as found in our road test. The car was also a couple of seconds quicker in our in-gear acceleration test. Not only has the car improved in terms of performance but also in terms of driveability and refinement. The interior quality and surface finish has also improved after feedback from customers.

    The Punto 90 HP has been launched in the Emotion trim only for now and will co-exist with the Punto 75 HP. The other engines on offer are a 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre Petrol FIRE engines that produce 67 bhp and 88 bhp respectively.

    PRICES OF THE PUNTO 90 HP ARE AS UNDER (ALL EX-SHOWROOM)

    New Delhi: Rs 6.79 lakh
    Mumbai: Rs 7.01 lakh
    Bengaluru: Rs 6.88 lakh
    Chennai: Rs 6.83 lakh
    Kolkata: Rs 6.85 lakh

    The colours on offer are: Bossa Nova White, Exotica Red, Medium Grey, Foxtrot Azure, Tuscan Wine

    Doesn't sem to be a typo.
    90 BHP Punto was always to be launched in Emotion variants only. Fiat may not want to disturb pricing of its FGT other variants & may not want to discontinue them & replace them with 20-30K higher priced 90 BHP variants. PLus there are so many Punto variants now.

    1.2 Active/Dynamic variants
    1.4 Emotion variants
    1.3 MJD FGT Active/ Dynamic / Emotion variants
    1.3 MJD VGT 90 HP Emotion variants

    And each of the above categories have 1 or 2 sub-variants like Option Pack

    I think its priced right and as BSM says its 3.8 seconds faster in 100 km speed than that FGT. Waiting for their test drive review in August issue.

    I am going to say VERY SMART PRICING.

    Now all those who were thinking "I will just add a Pete's box to 76 HP Punto for 28k and get 90 HP Power" are going to scratch their heads !!

    Actually the 30K increase is in Ex showroom price. On road it would be around 35-40K. Still I guess not a bad deal at all. You get FIAT certified and tested good performer than any rafter market thing.
