Pros : Power pack hatchback with good service network

Cons : A bit low ground clearance

Look and Style Great styling, ultimate looks. Comfort Nice spacious noise less cabin. Gr8!!! Pickup Handling is cool, Ride quality is superb only one thing a bit low ground clearnace need to take care of ditches. Mileage Fuel economy: My daily travel Rohini to Noida Avg Fuel consumption 22-23 in winters and 19-21 in summers depending on traffic jams. Mileage increased after 10000 Kms. You will forget to visit Petrol pump. Filled once for 1450/- drive atleast 750 Kms. It will show you mileage the best thing. Best Features Ultimate features like:1. Huge boot space 2. Electronic controlled side mirrors 3. It has 2 trip meters 4. Both trip merters shows Average mileage, instantaneuos mileage and trip duration 5. It will display lot of details on the console display like: How many kms. you can go with the remainig diesel, Temp, Date, Stereo info, Service reminder 6. It will also display in written like fornt right door open, if any door including boot is open 7. The folding key has in built center locking. 8. Auto down in all four power window and auto up in driving side. 9. Nice blaupunkt music system with a feature like volume increase & decrease with speed. 10. Driving seat height adjustment. 11. Stearing height adjustment. 12. Front and rear fog lamps. Needs to improve A bit in ground clearance and glass holders. Overall Experience Must buy, I have driven it 18000 Kms. Best thing service interval 15000Km (cost 4000/- approx.) , very warm welcome at TATA service centers and special attention for FIAT customers. Service centers are every where. Happy customer till now. Parts easily available eg: My wheel cap was broken once I got the original one from service center for only 210/- for emotion. One more thing I liked is that it has some seperate air filter for AC which is for only 35/- you just replace that after 15000KM and your car AC will chill you out thats the best thing no need for AC servicing every alternate year. I had drive it from DELHI to SHIMLA wonderful performance on hills with mileage of 16-17 on hills and 25.5 on highway. Its true you own it and you will love it.

    How anyone can purchase a fiat.. it is a sinking company with a liability of aprox 10 bln usd.

    yk sharma |13 May,2011 08:22:38 AM

    Hi Jay , Fiat in india is JV of Fiat and tata , so why u worry ? Think about GM , In india the sale aggressively, what happened by GM collapse in US. They still is the 2nd largest automaker.Fiat is 3rd largest auto makers.

    who said u to buy, its for bravoooooooooooo

    @Jay: I would like to tell you that you should have supporting facts before posting such things here. Also, I guess you need to brush up your facts and learn how to google things. FIAT is parent company of FERRARI, if you have heard of this name. You can understand what it means. Also which ever hatchback you are buying today in India is having a heart of FIAT only. That's why one go and buy fiat. But, thanks to show your pessimistic attitude. I would suggest to be an optimistic and stop criticizing things.

    CarDekho Team |11 Feb,2011 04:32:00 PM

    Dear User, We would like to inform you that you can opt for Fiat Linea 1.2 emotion has low maintenance cost and stands as a value for money variant in Fiat Linea line up. Thanks

    CarDekho Team |11 Feb,2011 05:05:10 PM

    If you would be driving for more than 80-100kms per day then the 1.3 Multijet diesel makes sense or else just get the 1.2 Petrol Punto. Thanks, CarDekho Team

    Devinder |17 Feb,2011 07:50:53 PM

    1.3 mjd active is excellent value for money got central locking and teflon done from dealer a good stereo is all i am looking for rest i think everything is there in the car,e.g. mobile charger int. adjust side view mirror front power win. excellent info on lcd display average calculator. very useful. plastic could have been better. but the suspension is excellent if you are on the rear seat you will appreciate it. engine noisee very less in the cabin. solid engine mountings no vibrations in the cabin during starting.

  • Nikhil |12 Feb,2011 11:48:07 AM

    @bem - I was also confused which one to buy, but looking at all the features I decided to with Emotion diesel. Now I sometimes think that I should have gone for Emotion pk. But its your decision as my traveling is 100-120 km. daily and I am happy with my emotion diesel. Actually you can calculate like this if you go for dynamic and opt for accessories outside you will spend 30-40K in that and will not get other features like wide tyres in emotion with folding key which is superb. I would say go for emotion its the best.

    Hi Guys, I was in love with Punto from the day I saw her.Finally I am getting one. Today booked 1.3 Emotion in Bosa Nova White colour, and expected to get the delivery of this Italian beauty by this month end. Any idea what what accessories that I should get for her. I am planning to the teflon coating from 3M and sun-films. I think this should be sufficiant for now. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Looking to see some feedback/ideas.

  • Nikhil |09 Mar,2011 09:05:11 PM

    @Sunil - I also own the same model, I had gone for only 4 things Leather Seat Covers, Film, Teflon Coating and Floor matting.

    i am planning to buy fiat punto 1.2P but i read few bad reviews about the pick up of the car especially 1.2 petrol. Can anyone help me out which is better option punto or new fabia?

  • Ansh |13 Apr,2011 08:46:23 AM

    Hey Guys, I am a proud owner of Punto Emotion Wine color Diesel. You own it and you love it. I am happy with my Punto crossing 25000 Kms. The best thing is service interval of 15000 kms, you will forget to go to service centers and petrol pumps. Very good after sales service FIAT announces free checkup camps also thrice in a year and you will get a call from the service center when you will visit. Also I was given a wonderful black Tshirt with FIAT marked on it. I am loving it!!!!

  • abhi |24 Apr,2011 03:01:23 AM

    i dont see any hatch thats better than punto in india i ve driven all of them .the feel of the steering controls reminds you of its connection whith the racing gods . and i dont consider jazz in the hatch segment

  • Nikhil |31 May,2011 10:34:50 AM

    Right Abhi... Punt's is the best. My rocking Diesel rocket...
