    I guess, turbo kick depends on when the exhaust gas is able run the turbo propeller to make a significantly more air in to manifold, you can either do it by increasing the size of turbo or fuel pressure.

    1) Slight changes in interior like -
    a) A bit smaller steering wheel and a bit lower. Front and back seats of Punto are quite large, though comfortable for driver and co passenger but again a bit smaller sized front and back seats will also be comfortable and can increase some space. Redesigning and proper positioning of seats according to Indian people will be good.
    b) Fit and finish of some panels.
    2) Increase GC by 10mm or reduce weight of car a bit.
    3) Ban ugly mudflaps on Italian beauty ::D .. I mean if fiat can provide good looking plastics mudflaps like in Swifts, ANHC rather than big mudflaps which are currently employed. BTW Punto is beautiful in stock form.
    4) Engine options like 1.2, 1.4, 1.3MJD look fine , though 1.4 Tjet would be good.
    5) I find TASS very good in my area but parts availability can be improved.
  8. Re: whats Punto needs to sell more.

    1-Make it more fuel efficient using fiat new Twinair Engine.
    2-Launch Punto Evo.
    3- option of 16” rim.
    4-In fiat’s exclusive stores give option to customer to build their car. All newest accessories must be available there.
    5- Open dealership shop of spare parts, Like Mahindra and Tata.
    6-Localisation of complicated parts.
    7- Cut some price after localisation.
    8-Beige interior can do some magic for Punto. We love Beige.
