Hay Guys,

Just joined the group today......

Found good article on GP and Linea History....check out at below link...

http://www.autozine.org/html/Fiat/Punto.html

I hope,  we get similar suspension and stability in Indian version of GP i.e. at par with  international standards as per below lines selected from the article.

"On the road, the big Punto feels robust, refined and quiet. Its stiff structure

- with a class-leading torsional rigidity of 19,700 Nm/degree for the 3-door and

16,500 Nm/degree for the 5-door - plays an important role here, as is the

improved suspensions. The Grande Punto uses the same suspensions as the next

generation Opel Corsa. All four corners employ thicker rubber bushings to

insulate NVH from the bodyshell. The front MacPherson struts suspensions employ

dual-link strut mounts to reduce NVH. The lower wishbones are made of pressed

steel sheets instead of cast iron to reduce unsprung weight. At the rear, the

torsion beam is now made of different thickness depending on models, thus saving

the need for anti-roll bars for the more powerful models - a technique learned

from Opel Astra. This save weight of course. Besides, the dampers are mounted

vertically in order to absorb NVH better. When driving the Grande Punto, most

journalists were impressed by its good bump absorption, even on broken surfaces,

and the quietness of its ride. In this way, the Grande Punto has the same sweet

driving manner as Panda."

Cheers,

Vishal Chopra

Thanks Rahul.....

By the way Honda Jazz details are out in today's TOI.....car is priced at 7 Lakhs (Ex-showroom)....Honda premium as expected ........Now Punto may fall in price band of 5.5 - 6.6 Lacs. I believe .......

The ride quality ,IMO, is the best in a car under 10 lakhs. The potholes cannot be felt but only heard a bit. Only problem can be the GC but I have not faced any issues with it till date.
