    Hi Passionate Guys,
    As we all aware Fiat doesnot highlight their features in the brochure. I would like to know the unspecified feature set comparison between these two variant. I am planning to buy in another 4 months time.
    If I buy Dynamic I will get
    1. Rear A/C vent
    2. Similar Meters compare to Emotion model with warning messages
    3. Does it have Rain sensing intermittent vipers or speed sensitive wiper control ?
    4. Does it Auto lock once speed reaches 20 kmph ?
    5. Can fit driver side power window control for additional Rs1100. Does punto emotion has auto up feature when you park and lock the car with window open?
    6. Can fit fog lamps for Rs 3k
    7. Can fit central lock for Rs 4k, but I do miss Desmo key
    8. Does have follow me home feature
    9. Cost of electric mirror fitment ?
    So I will be spending close to 10K to get my essential features minus ICE and alloys

    I dont need Emotion version (but I miss ABS ) due to these reason
    1.Defogger not need in chennai climate also sunfilm installation will be headache
    2.Rear wiper not mandatory
    3.No Bluetooth control in Emotion variant. I will add ICE with these features
    4.Seat adjustment is not mandatory once Adjusted with the driving style
    5.Silver color on grill doesnt gel well with BNW :lol:
    6. Obviously 50K more as per ex showroom price.
    7. Still need to spend for alloys and tyre upgrade

    I need to take informed decision later I should not repent why I miss this feature. If anyone can provide me a chart which has highlighted and non highlighted features across variant it will help for many new comers like me. Also it helps Fiat bashers to close their mouth forever.

    Regards,
    Vijay

    Some major points, I can think of besides ABS, Front fog lamp, defogger

    Missing in Dynamic and present in Emotion
    1. Dual Tone Dashbord
    2. External Temp on MID
    3. Electric adjust ORVM
    4. Rear washer & wiper
    5. Rear seat headrest adjust
  3. I can tell you about 1 feature. neither punto nor linea comes with feature where windows roll up if left open and car is locked.The auto up feature we speak about and the one mentioned in brochure is window comes up fully if button is pressed for half second and left, no need to keep it pressed.I think Punto is the same it has All auto down and driver side auto up.

    Is this Topic about "Punto" Dynamic comparision with Emotion. If so Mods change heading PUNTO FEATURES COMPARISON DYNAMIC AND EMOTION MJD.

    Does Dynamic models come with rear AC vent. My Linea is a Dynamic Pack version & does not have rear vent AC.
  5. NAREN64 mine is also dynamic and there isa rear AC vent.Linea has 2 types of rear AC vents.Foot level and knee level.The ones behind armrest in Emotion are the knee level ones, foot level vents are present below the front seats.One can't see them easily due to seat but can feel the cold air when the blower is set to foot&knee level.

    Sorry guys mistook for the knee level AC Vent, also mine has a foot level AC vent & I have seen it while cleaning interiors.

    Mine Linea is a Dynamic Pack version & has all the features of the Emotion except for the ACC, Rear sun screen & Rear Knee level AC vent. This model is now not available.

    Sorry for the confusion. I meant Punto feature comparison. Me and wife went to concorde motor in velachery (Chennai) yesterday. On the way we visited Sheriff motors for Micra.
    I went to the showroom as if I dont know anything about Car. Power window doesnot even come to the first 2 version coupled with 3 pot motor. Rear back seat is like bench. The attention to the customer was better compared to concorde motors. Apart from that I dont find interesting.
    Concorde motors can be best described as vegetable market. Rush is plenty and all the executives running around. I didnt bother to accompany by sales executive. Clicked some photos on the mobile, started explaining features on punto to my wife. By that time sales rep joined and explained. We went to the yard in the backside and saw FTA color, Wife liked the color and she doesnt like BNW :eek: .She saw Linea and fell in love. I told her it is way out of our budget.
    We started lobby around for other TATA cars. Indigo eCS my wife went gaga over the car space and price. She forced me not to be a Fiat lover and look as practical person :hit I too agreed. She started noticing the skinny build quality, light doors, Panel gaps, improper fit and finish. She told me it can be best referenced to Esteem. Sales rep told me this diesel engine in eCS will be replaced all fiat diesel if proves successfu :A (if proves but when?). Its the time for Vista refresh. Looks bigger than regular indica. I too liked practicality except the design. The build is not filmsy but certainly not upto Fiat. Oodles of space Blue and Me, ABS for 6L for the . Now she is heavily towards vista for VFM and practicality. To a certain point I too need to agree Punto is little over priced. For ABS version I need to spend 6.8L . Come on Fiat price the car strategically you can see the car flying off the shelf. When Tata outsource engine, gearbox, blue and me, perhaps ABS from fiat and price 6L what stopping Fiat to have the same feature set atleast ABS without blue and me in the Dynamic version. This is what the general public thinks. I clearly told her to keep away from Vista. Our next option is to try Ford Figo Titanium and Logan.
    Dont you think Punto is over priced?
    Some pics from my mobile. Excuse for the pic quality

  9. I don't think Punto is overpriced, Agree they come with same engines but thats where similarity ends.Punto looks way better than Vista also the bluetooth connectivity available is not Blue&ME. Blue & ME is technology developed by Microsoft for FIAT cars.Vista has Blue5.Punto has better ride, handling and build quality.On the other hand vista has lots of space.

    I do have to agree one should not compare with Vista. But see aam junta cannot differentiate these things. How many of them will think about the plastic quality , sheet thickness barring few ppl. Punto is so solid that one needs pull the door with heavy pull. I have noticed one thing the front doors close with solid thud and rear doors close with clank.
    Coming back to topic what untold features I miss If I choose Active over Emotion barring the features mentioned in the brochure ?
