I understand your concern about having to shell out 50K more and this is indeed a stupid move by Fiat. I don't understand why Punto 90bhp & Punto Sport can't co-exist. As I understand, Punto Sport is the 2012 90bhp model, do make sure if the regular Punto 90 that you are getting (if you get one that is!) is a 2012 or 2011 model. I am guessing the hindrance here is not the extra 50K but the fact that you are being forced to shell out more despite having booked a car in advance. The driving pleasure that the Punto will give you over the i20 will compensate the extra 50K in no time. I guess apart from the extra money that you are going to spend you will have to weigh the intangible benefit of better driving experience before deciding in favour of either of the cars. Question now is how much monetary value are you going to place on that intangible benefit of better driving experience of the Punto over the i20.
