    Engine & Gear box doesn't make soul. With complete respect to your understanding, for me Manza/Swift are just appliances like Oven/Refrigerator. If you managed to find soul into them, good for you, pls go ahead. Also if you find them to your likings, Punto would be terribly useless for you. Yes, i also clarify that there are even more drawbacks of punto that you didn't notice.

    Rear seat are most cramped in it's class, comparatively higher wind noise, louder engine noise inside cabin, Brakes overtly strong for other cars rewarding you occasional dents/scratches, Max. turning radius, over engineered chassis making it uselessly bulky, least mileage of diesel & petrol among it's competitors.

    Still, the only car in it's segment that can be associated with Soul & passion. That's what soul & passion is!! Only crazy like us can sense in a car that is full of back draws for an average user.
    Don't scratch your head too much to dig this passion/soul/heart thing, have a go at Manza/Swift. They are good choices as majority buyers prove it. But again even Alto could do that which is obviously filled with passion & soul from tip to toe, what's the point of spending 4 lac's extra? Manza/Swift are no "Rolls Royce Ghost" or "Bentley Muslanne" if you will for any status symbol:confused.

    Pls note that i have heard not one accidental death reported in almost 70000 Linea's & Punto's till date. Try google it if you find any case. I myself don't believe that. But they are pretty much unbelievable about FIAT cars. None of the owner was injured in serious way, leave the rest.

    Tata Tipper on Linea:

    High speed head-on of Linea with Cabin intact:

    But when same TATA 407 Fully loaded topples over a Punto, Nothing serious!! Owner comes out of the passenger window of the car to beat some hell out of the truck driver.

    An Ambassador Reared by a Linea:mrgreen:. Also have a look at the damaged linea.

    Linea hitting divider at very high speed & then toppling over 6 times as informed by spectators. IMO to topple a car 6 times would need speed in excess of 130-140. The driver was drunk & came out of the car abusing the divider:mrgreen:

    Do you want to know what could happen to other cars when they hit the divider & topples over at 120??

    I would call it the bribe to the press & govt agency to certify that. I myself braked an overloaded punto (6 people including me) at 150 with all my Thigh & calf muscles. It Felt like i hit in a concrete wall. The inside of the car was a total mess with somersaults & front row passengers exchanging seats with rear row passengers against their wish. No car with 2 disc brakes can even dream of Punto's stopping. They just don't possess the basic dynamics for that sort of braking (tires, suspension, chassis tuning & whiplash reactions). Liva with 6 hefty people inside would struggle to a fade free 40 to 0 without bringing heart to mouth. Sorry i reject that over the head bouncer. Toyota may get the rest of the world convinced but not me. I have seen already what's extreme braking is all about in this segment.

    ENKI, I hate to see these pictures. And felt sad to see the Fiat beauties in this Avatar. You could have avoided this.

    Palio too is a very strong car. I saw pics of a Palio-Train rendezvous on TBHP. The driver and passengers came out unscathed.

    I agree Ramjn. But anyways, i would request mods to let these Pics stay in this particular thread. They are testimony to who ever doubts FIAT's built quality, pls remove for other brands if feels inappropriate. I tried to avoid but let them break the hallucination people have been under & know the true concept of how safe a compact car can be!!

    Enki I second you. Even I have never heard of any punto /Linea owner who has got seriously injured in a mishap & hats off to the pics you had posted. It is really an eye opener. We had a thread on accidents earlier I believe. Maybe mods can move this pics to that thread.

    Agree with ENKI. Do you trust Tata body to last 10 years ??? It's the body/chasis which takes most of the beating.

    This happens with everybody before going for FIAT. Leave all the features behind. In the end, it's heart vs mind. Life is full of irrationality. Heart goes with irrational, mind goes with logical. Those who go logical, will never understand the mood of irrational. Irrationality is Art.
