  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.

  3. 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. Refreshed plans for FIAT: Tata

  5. "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.
  6. "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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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 ~
  11. Linea T-Jet

    saudul you have only been complaining and talking about the service, but have not proved anything yet with any proof.
  12. 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

  14. 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

  16. 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.
  17. Linea T-Jet

    Nice try Saudul!
  18. Linea T-Jet

    I agree with Naren. Saudul needs to post his pics and concerns appropriately and ofcourse his statements are misleading. although there have been many sauduls in the recent past with various assumptions before the launch of Linea and after, however they have all remained numb now and most of those have never bought one. @DD guess you should get your stats corrected once again as none of the petrol cars (Vento & City) do a 0-100 in 10 secs, even with the in-gear-times.
  19. Linea T-Jet

    The car is sweet ! Car enthusiaists will have no complaints and if they do, they would not be looking at environment and safety closely. As always I am confident about Fiat's pricing cause they know what they are doing and will give no space for pricing mistakes. @saudul hasan - kindly post ur pics for us to see ur concern clearly and ur date of purchase...cause this is an issue which is unusual for we car owners.
  20. Fiat Linea - ECU blown?

    Parhaps, the most impressive story(post) I have read in Autocarindia & BHP. Coolboy@ this post was like a movie for me as I read all the posts at one-go. First the happy owner, then the problems, later even more problems, after a while the entry of the villain (DD) & lastly a happy ending. Very entertaining and nail bitting at the same time. I've been reading all posts related to linea here(Autocarindia), cause my very close friend owns one, has crossed 25k in less than 6 months, very roughly used, always loaded with atleast 5-6 people and completely filled with luggage and hitting the highway twice every week, scraping the horrible roads along the Bangalore - Hassan highway & not to forget the not so good Hassan roads. We have no complaints and enjoy every single drive of it. FIAT is not for everyone !
  21. Automatic Diesal hatchback?

    Fiat already has the automatic diesels abroad in Punto. Not only that they also have the latest technology - Triptronic - which is both automatic and gears as and when you like it. Even the gear shifting is very easy as you can operate like a video game with just Plus and Minus. This is soon going to be available in India and thats when Iam waiting to buy my Punto.
  22. Opinions about punto needed

    The multijet is a newer and enhanced technology than CRDi. i20 is one hatch back which I could compare with punto in terms of features. I guess it depends on the driving pleasure one wants in order for his car of choice.
  23. Abarth Punto Add-ons for the Indian Punto

    Grande punto Abarth gets 17" but Grand Punto abarth SS or super sport gets 18" shoes' date=' I think.[/quote'] Winner- your right, the Grande Punto Abarth gets 17" and the SS gets 18". The GP Abarth has these wheels in order to handle its immense power along with the modified aerodynamics. So you will needs these wheels only if you beef up the bhp. Fiat has designed the controls perfectly well for this stock in India. Yes, it will definitely give a great look for your GP if you put 215.
  24. HID Vs Xenon headlights

    That means we need to have twin headlamps right? Is there any other restriction in power of xenons' date=' color, etc..?[/quote'] If you have the H4 bulb type then you could just put one HID kit. But if your car has high & low beam in any other format other than H4 then you need 2 different sets of bulbs. For eg: the Honda Civic as H1 and H7 combinations, the same as Fiat Palio. These cars need 2 sets of HID kits, one for H1 bulbs set and the other for H7 bulbs set. Alternatively you can put just one HID set for the H7 and just xenon bulbs for the H1. This will save you money. Please avoid xenon of over 5000k as they protrude a problem for the on-coming traffic and are of no use (comparing to the 4k-5k xenons) where visibilty is concerned. Moreover I think over 5000k xenons should be declared as illegal, where our transportation system is concerned.
  25. HID Vs Xenon headlights

    As akj53in said they are one and the same. Xenon is the name of the gas that helps in giving out the color & brightness of the light. HID (High Intensity Discharge) is the unit (kit) which once switched on, the HID unit functions as a booster and also helps store the energy & discharge in auniform manner. K- stands for kelvin (the measurement of the temperature) The color of light changes accordingly to the temperature. So my advice is that if you want bright white light then choose the 4000k-5000k, avoid further powerful xenons as the colors keep changing according to the temperature. For example: If you exceed more than 5000k then it starts to change to light blue and 20000k-25000k changes from green to purple, which is not practical while driving & where visibilty is concerned.
