Launched in the Indian market in June 2009, the Punto won immediately got applause from the industry as well as users for the way it looked. Gorgeous Italian design, classiness and elegance – some of the few words that were instantly used for the car. Today the Puno sells in four engine options and multiple trim levels. However, the sales have always remained sluggish and in 2011, the Punto has had the worst record ever, selling just 5500 units between May and Oct 2011 - this inspite of the company providing various offers, schemes and benefits through its showrooms. Now this is a shame for a car that excels in various parameters and not only in the way it looks. So, what exactly are the strong points of the Punto? Read on to know what we think about this Italian hatchback.

Fiat Grande Punto Diesel 1.3 Active Review
Posted on 18 Jan 10 at 5:14 pm

Pros The most beautiful Hatchback on Roads, Sturdy, Best Diesel Mileage, Best Safety, Money Value

Cons A little bit low ground clearance, Less Initial thrust

I bought Punto Multijet Diesel 1.3 Active, in Sep. 2009. Done 3500 Km as on Jan 15, 2009. The best 2 things about Punto are (i) Very Good mileage, I am getting consistently of 20 km per litre after fisrt 1000 Km run and (ii) it feels big and safe while driving Punto. You get the feel of a Big Vehicle drive. The driving cofort is excellent considering the basic price of Rs. 4.90 Lac I paid for it. You don't feel tired at all even after a ride of 3 hours (the maximum I have done in a single stretch). Another positive factor is its 15000 Km service interval, that means going to service garage only once in a year for a driver like me. It is exctermely sturdy and safe and therefore peace of mind. Overall, this is wonderful to possess FIAT PUNTO, and I love the ITalian Beauty. Ashwani Bhardwaj, Parwanoo (HP).

Punto - Beautiful with no go
Posted on 24 Jul 09 at 2:47 pm

Pros Superb styling, Good ride and handling, great feature list

Cons Dark interiors, slightly poor plastics, no punch in the engine - diesel

You will fall in love with the Punto (if you have a soul i.e) ) devilish style, naughty colours to choose from, nice looking but dark interiors - a beuatiful instrument console with orange backlights. decent music system , a very useful trip computer and blue and me bluetooth interface . Good ride and handling. The only dark spot being the performance - inspite of the Multijet engine which delivers a great drive in the Swift and the Dzire - the Punto is lacklustre to drive. A tradeoff between driveability and outright pickup i guess..but hey , with something so pretty and in ferrari red - i need this to get some punch ..sweet car - something i would love to buy if they do some remapping of the ECU.. Fiat - listen..

Solid car with a BIG "IF"
Posted on 5 Nov 09 at 12:23 pm

Pros she is rock solid

Cons very bad and cheap quality and poor after sale service

this is a good car to own. if you are ok to live with ZERO accessories available till now. (ex. Mud flap, car cover) try calling them and ask for Mud flap. you will know.. if you can live with out (Glass holder, Arm rest) i guess there are small things a primer (high end) customers gets. if you can live with ZERO knowledgeable service advice. and late arrival of spare part. Customer care and fiat first all the stuff is just gimicks. try calling them as ask any technical question you will know. if you can live with some minor issues.... if you are taking Emotional pack. later when you want add a sub woofer its it not possible. you can not upgrade the system. End of the day when sit inside the car she will make you forget and you would love the drive!!!!
