I got a chance to test drive the Punto Abarth today, at Mohandas Motors, Trivandrum. The car is HOOTTTTTTTTTTT!!!! Anybody looking for the hot one, this is it. Period. I felt it a lot hotter than the TJet as well. I could achieve 110 km/h in 12 noon traffic on NH bypass road (between their showroom and Technopark), where in normal drives, half the speed is usually achieved. Later while driving towards Pothencode, it touched 150 (both speeds as per the SA). When it reached 110, I did not really feel that it had reached there. And it reaches there all too quickly!!! 2nd gear maxes out at about 90 km/h. 3rd gear is where all the fun is. Though I could put it in 4th and 5th, the roads were not open enough to push to their limits. I did drive for about 23km in less than half an hour (including petrol filling break, traffic signals, tolls etc). Average mileage was about 5.5km/lit (I was ripping, as it was a test drive). Avg speed about 46 km/h (normally in this place, my average speed does not go beyond 30 km/h). I could take out all that cars on the road, which was obvious. Black Abarth in the showroom. Red is the one for test drive. I forgot to add: Punto Abarth has a lot better suspension too. The same places where I feel undulations in my Linea, I was surprised that, were completely filtered in Punto Abarth. Another surprise that came was that despite having a low 155mm of GC, at the new potholed section near Kazhakkuttom police station, the bottom did not scrape. I could hear a Swift Dzire scrapping.
