@Aditya Deshmukh • 05 Aug, 2014 • 1 like This facelift is looking good. Now it looks more like a sports hatchback.
@Root • 05 Aug, 2014 I love the idea of dead pedal. A mustly must, if you ask me.
@Rajni Jain • 05 Aug, 2014 I second you guyz on this.
From the looks of it, FIAT had done a good job in interior and exterior.

I am sure Fiat Punto evo will give a fight to Swift / i10 grand in this price category.

However, I am sure Fiat Punto evo will give a fight to Swift / i10 grand in this price category.
In theory yes. But what does not fiat have comparing to that of Maruti and Hyundai os the reputation of after sales support. Only Nissan service can beat Fiat on ill- reputation.

I am am Fiat fan, and had an Adventure for some time. But because of poor service options from Fiat, I have settled for an i10 Grand now.

Over the last couple of years Fiat had gained some reputation.
and Maruti / Hyndai had lost it when it come to after sale support (They are providing services but not sure why they are charging super heavily for the same).
@Vipin Thomas • 07 Aug, 2014 Looks terrific.. They have done gr8 innovations in this car..

What's the mileage for Diesel variant? Does it beat Swift?
@Bella Edward • 05 Dec, 2014 I have drive this car but fiat punto is just okay
