Fiat Punto Front View

Fiat is no stranger to the Indian market. It has been in India for a long time yet it first tasted success with the Palio hatchback. It was unlike anything else on our roads at that time- solid build, great looks and a 1.6 litre engine. That car was an instant success but after sometime rivals were getting fresher and more competent and the Palio's age started to show. Fiat needed something new and exciting in the small car segment. In 2009 it did just that by launching the Grande Punto. It was a great looking car that had all the ingredients for a success. It was successful initially but later it waned slightly thanks to a influx of hugely capable small cars. When its competitors were racing ahead and notching up impressive sales figures month after month, the Grande Punto was left behind. Now however Fiat wants to change all that with the 2012 model line-up. This is a small update to make the Punto even more tempting and offer more value for money. That optimism has reaped rewards somewhat as in January 2012 Fiat sold 1600 Punto's. So is the 2012 Punto a great buy?'s Somnath Chatterjee drove both the diesel and petrol to find out.

Cons Average Interiors,

Finally I zeroed down to Punto after test driving Figo, I10, Ritz, Polo, I20, Swift Dzire, Beat & I10 Grand. It was a real tough decision to make but you gotta do what your heart tells you ! It has been 10 days and 650 kms of city and a small highway driving since. Punto is a great machine to have. It drives nicely with excellent ride quality & a great steering feedback. It feels safe & always in your command. Fuel efficiency is decent, around 14 kmpl is what I am getting in this very short period of ownership. Now the darker side. The bulb of ceiling light was blown, plastic used in cabin is not good, plastic cover of right side rear pillar inside the cabin is not properly fitted, tyres are too undersized (16580r-14).I had to upgrade to Michelin 18570 r-14. But since Punto gives a great driving experience, many small niggles can be overlooked.

worst fiat punto petrol
Posted on 24 Aug 12 at 1:01 pm

Pros good aerodynamic shape

Cons poor service,parts not available,third class engine

After every 7000km engine goes down,in two years three times engine goes down in just 24000km and every time company takes two months to change the engine,even parts are not available in service centre.this is the worst car i have ever seen in my life,fiat staff is not very much technically qualified.

My great car
Posted on 21 Mar 13 at 10:11 am

Pros looks plus good milage & smooth engine on long drive

Cons hight adjustable seats would be very competable

I have puchased Punto Active diesel. I am very much satisfied with the performance on long drive. Great milage and comfort. Feels safe at the speed beyond 100kmph. I feel lucky to have Punto diesel. Go for it as it is value for money.

It does not come with Air Bags, which is the biggest draw-back. Fuel consumption is way high but you would love driving
it thru the way of your life..Everything else is super awesome.. Who ever say PUNTO IS NOT A CHOICE do not know what
exactly a car is..
