    My brother just called from Chennai. He has never driven a FIAT extensively before. He has owned the following cars in the past -

    M 800
    Daewoo Matiz
    Ford Ikon
    Honda City Gen 4
    Hyundai Verna
    Chevy Cruze
    Honda City Gen 3

    This is what he had to say - " This car is an amazing machine. Brilliant handling, very low noise levels, extremely comfortable seating position, smooth revving and butter smooth gear shifts, awesome pick up. Your cruise control, is the icing in the cake. But for the Cruze, none of the other cars I have owned come anywhere near this one. When I am in the market for my next car, I know what I will buy" :D

    Please do write a review with pictures. :)

    And we can see if we can do a fair comparison with Punto 1.4.

    Did anyone notice the after market wheels on the stickered punto? The real pics have the OEM wheels while the rendered one has aftermarket ones.

    This is how a customer should feel after a test drive. A test drive for 2-3 kms in a predefined route is not going to show the real quality inside.

    Anyway, Fiat must thank Rajan for doing their duty to earn a customer :up

  9. I think this was a good move from maruti, atleast the ldi and xdi had significant difference at a small price.
    Just for comparisons sake what is the difference between a 90hp sports and 90hp? Other than a few stickers and the SPORTY pedals? Ofcourse let us not forget at a premium over 40k.is it worth it?? ? definitely not..atleast fiat should adapt to different marketing strategy of the same model(till they launch a new one)
    Was reading in ET the other day how the maruti's marketing manager is applying to new tactics of selling cars in rural region. For a car brand to grow they need good team to market a product even if its dud.
