Exterior This is my 2nd review. Before buying, I was searching for 2nd review to get better idea about that. But I did not find any. So I decided to give one now. Maybe helpful.
PUNTO evo Emotion diesel. Now it is 6 months, >6500 km. I went to Ooty trip from NGL via Kothagiri. We cross 1197km up and down including Hill route. 5 adult +AC, with full luggage, I got average 18.2 km/L. Nagapatinum trip via trichy got 21. Driving control is excellent. Cornering also best in control.
Reliable Engine as everybody knows. We cannot expect some time sudden pickup especially lower gears in Town. To overtake, may need one gear down shift will be pleasant. 2000 RPM, it is 90 km/H. As I wrote before, Gear shift is bit rubbery and no problem in that. Little more power could be better. This is just OK.
Built Quality[ Not plastic like seat handle ,diesel tank lid opener], Heavy we can believe the strength. Feel safe inside. This is the main +. Very good suspension. The body shape really I love it. I am following only my mind. Not thinking of others what they buy and resale value. I wish to keep longer Year. Very good ground clearance and big tyre. AC, Normal. Not much engine noise inside.
Ride Quality & Handling Breaking is excellent. Sound system, voice control, Light,Horn, all well satisfied. I am not modified much. I add Only Car reversing sensor [Audible] fiat genuine one. It is useful. About service, I am well satisfied with Rehoboth service centre Thirunelveli. In Nagercoil I did first service [check up and water wash] Pay zero bill. I believe it is cheap to maintain FIAT car. Any brand, luck also play a part. I was facing only one problem from the beginning, in lower RPM, I hear small vibration from glove box lid. I add additional rubber. Till then it is 100% ok.
Final Words I am well satisfied with my evo.
