    So, finally Fiat admits that we Indians are more worried about "extra" FE and performance rather than "extra" safety with "good" FE and performance.

    What is your take on lesser kerb weight or rather kerb weigth coming towards normal from safety point of view?

    So can we put 195 on same OE steel rim? Is your tyre not getting bulge?

    can we really expect a change in the Fe figures? More so with the 1.4 petrol variant?

    Has the weight gone down by 60Kgs just by changing the profile of the tire? I doubt it, there might some other things that are changed to get the weight down or its purely a typing mistake.

    It does make sense to have the same spec tires for the active, dynamic and emotion variant. However, E-pack does have different size.

    By the way which brand is the 165/80 R14 spec tire, hope its not JK Tyre.

    Punto Emotion Pack has 195/60 R15 tires, is it same as before? Or is there a change? What reduces the weight actually? I hope they are not using any low grade steel! :(
