  1. FIAT Punto & Linea 2012: Launched

    I guess with the Fiat-Tata seperation and improvising on their already good cars, Fiat is moving in the right direction and thats really good news for Fiat lovers and car lovers.
  2. Refreshed plans for FIAT: Tata

    Totally agree with Tejas. The irony for we indians is that; Fiat has the best of products all over the world, including best in design and technology and ofcourse the most environmentaly friendly automobile company in the world, and we get to see those designs and some of those technologies copied by cheaper korean and japanese companies and supplied to India.

  4. "Punto is sluggish", a mere MYTH

    The mere myth comes from people who dont appreciate Fiat technology and research. Fiat has very specifically made changes to this Punto in India based alot on the traffic & road conditions here. We in India tend to ignore the facts such as why Fiat has put a low turning radius for its cars, why longer gear ratios, why low speeds and low revs on low gears and so on. All these relate to great chassis for great handling and better FE and ofcourse easy on the environment and most importantly 'The Feel'. Lets admit guys: Most of us here on forums are pure car lovers. Even my Palio lets me cruise through traffic easily with little gear changes and I go easy on the accelerator and control more through the clutch. Earlier people also complained about the Fiat Linea 90hp and termed it sluggish. I just want to ask something here to we Indians, when we drive in city limits, do we race? Next, on highways do we race?NO. Just last week I drove my friend's Linea a 90hp to Goa & back. I even challenge my friend that I wouldnt let any car over take me. The performance was more than adequate. I was driving safely yet at high speeds. It was fabulous. There was one question on both our minds while on the highway. Why are people on the blogs asking for more speed and power when I am not able to even drive this machine to its fullest given the kind of road conditions we have on highways, the traffic and ofcourse less sense of highway rules we have.
  5. "Poor" man's SUV in 2011?

    Guys Fiat has something what we all are looking for. And check its performance-voila!- this is from Topgear.
  6. Inviting all true fans: The Punto Club

    @DD- Yes the Punto 90 BHP is VGT (Variable Geometry Turbo). My friend who had booked the Punto is a very 'superstitious' guy. His Punto was ready the day Fiat promised his delivery(28/oct-Thur). He however thought he would take the delivery on Fri and could leave office early. His work for the day wasnt getting over soon and his eagerness to collect his 'Lady in Red' grew by the hour. He finished his work as quickly as possible and hurried on his bike to Prerana Motors on Lalbagh road. Unfortunately due to the tension of office & the eagerness to drive his new car, he met with a small accident and injured his leg. He was still reluctant to take the delivery and drive his car home & to the temple. However, he couldnt getup the next day from his bed due to the injury. Presently he is at rest for a couple of days & waiting his journey of 1300 kms in the Punto. I guess nothing can stop anyone from an enthusiastic drive.
  7. Inviting all true fans: The Punto Club

    My friend had already booked a swift vdi, although as a car enthusiast he prefered the Punto, however his father was reluctant on maruthi. He knew the Punto was a much better car but was also taken back by the wrong rumours that the A.S.S. of Fiat was not upto the mark, and this info was given to him by people who never owned a Fiat. He also had a few questions in terms of technology and I was more than happy to tell him the same. After our conversation the next day morning he went and cancelled the booking, informed them that he is going for the Punto & requested for his refund and the maruthi guy told him repeatedly, "Sir, your doing a big mistake". He is getting his Red Punto 1.3 emotion within 10 days of booking and immediately driving to his hometown with his family, which is 1300 kms. He is also getting goodies such as GPS system, 3M paper and other additional goodies. Will keep you posted after his delivery tomorrow and hopefully his experience when he comes back. I am sure he will enjoy every moment.
  8. FIAT to improve AC efficiency

    My friend's Linea 1.3 has a splendid a/c. We have hardly used to 3 or 4 mark. Its usually 1 or sometimes just for a few mins to mark 2. Never tried the 1.2 or 1.4 a/c though. I think its quiet fabulous in 1.3
  9. Linea T-Jet

    One of the press releases: Fiat launches its next generation Linea T- Jet redefining the luxury & performance benchmark in the C plus segment ~
  10. Linea T-Jet

    saudul you have only been complaining and talking about the service, but have not proved anything yet with any proof.
  11. Linea T-Jet

    @Saudul there is no such thing as "automatic HID lights" HID is a different technology and what Fiat has is "adaptive

  13. Linea T-Jet

    @saudul hasan you seem to be very confused about whatever you try to talk here in this forum. You still havent posted any written proof for your complaints nor your pics. At times you speak about your complaints the next moment your talking about Fiat's 1.9. Fiat is not launching any 1.9 in India and yes the Dual Logic is expected soon in India. There is no such things as automatic HID lamps or rear window curtains coming in. I guess your talking about Boeing's noise emissions and not Co2 emissions.

  15. Linea T-Jet

    The city best known is 10.5 secs. Again alot of considerations. Its a lighter vehicle with more emissions, less mileage etc etc.
