    Looking to buy a 2012 Punto

    Hi Friends,

    One of my friend was looking to buy a new car, he had almost decided on Swift. I have literally brain washed him to for Punto instead. He is keen on the 2012 models due to the discounts. Could you guys help me what all to look for.

    We are planning to visit FIAT Cafe in Domlur, any leads contacts whom I can approach will be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Syed

    just make sure ur friend loves punto before he buys it... i say this from personal experience and our fellow member's experience in suggesting FIATs for friends...

    Fiat is giving more discounts on the 2013 model itself. I am not sure if Fiat still has got 2012 models in stock. As we are already nearing the last quarter of 2013, better go for 2013 model itself.

    This is my opinion though.

    2012 models are out of stock. Maybe ask him to go for 2013 itself. Moreover 2013 Punto are more refined and smoother to drive.

    2012 and 2013 are essentially the same in terms of refinement...aren't they?

    I doubt if any 2012 models would be at stock at all. I remember Fiat under producing units in Dec 2012, may be so that nothing gets left out. IIRC, some waited for 2-3 weeks to get delivery of their cars in early 2013

    Thanks everyone, will check for 2013 models and 2012 models both, regarding my friend he is a novice about cars, he wants a decent hatch back with good safety. I will have take a long test drive and then leave him to decide.
    One thing for sure, after driving my car and having gone through the forum he is getting inclined towards FIAT and Punto.
