Fiat Punto EVO A Car Meant To Be Regularly Driven

Fiat Punto EVO A Car Meant To Be Regularly Driven

After 10 months and 8k kms of driving feat, this is my honest take on Punto EVO. After spending so much time, I must say this car is not for meant for occasional driving, but for the everyday commute. When I was purchasing the car, a lot of people asked me as to why I am choosing this one ignoring the popular brands out there. I said when there is a risk, there is reward too. I have certain non-common things in life that I love to put on to the discussion. For example, I purchased a Motorola smartphone instead of popular Samsung brand. My friend asked me where did you hear about this phone? I said, I researched. Talking about the car, the Punto EVO significantly looks more appealing as compared to the standard one. I particularly liked the striking swept back headlights and power bulges on the bonnet. At the rear, the clear lens tail lamps featuring LED elements have been nicely designed. Inside, the car shares a lot of goodies with the elder sibling Linea and the additions are indeed impressive. The cabin features all black theme and the textured soft plastic on the dashboard look really upmarket. You do get features such as climate control, rear AC vents and Microsoft powered ?Blue and Me? Bluetooth support and steering-mounted audio controls for quenching your thirst for comfort and convenience.
Now comes the crucial aspect of the review, the performance. Since I was power hungry, I chose the 1.3L 90hp multijet diesel engine. The car gets into the real driving mood from the third gear and I honestly say that to get most out of the performance, Punto should be driven in the mid-range of 1750-3500 rpm. Once you have learned the art of keeping the car in this range, you will experience the real fun. Ride and handling have always been Fiat?s forte and this one also excels in this field with superb steering and grip levels. And the suspension setup doesn?t faze the Punto irrespective of the kind of road ahead. So the car is a real highway cruiser with solid built quality and best ride/handling experience. Lack of service centers is a real issue, however, if you have up your mind, this one con will not deter you from buying this car.

after reading your Motorola mobile scenario, I remember about by purchasing my laptop. in year 2010 I purchased asus laptop, many of my friends asked me why I have purchased asus laptop, I said apple laptops where equipped with Asus motherboard, so logically asus motherboard will be more reliable and engineering point of view asus laptop will be value for money and I have purchased the asus laptop

        The drive of the car is very fun-loving but the only minus point is on glass holder.
