We have two hatchbacks and two sedans worth looking into because of their massive price discounts. It seems Fiat has some units of discontinued Grande Punto remaining and it comes with a discount coupon of up to Rs. 70,000. Direct price reduction of Rs. 50,000 will be made, and remaining claim will be settled via benefits like exchange bonus, free insurance, corporate discounts and such. New Fiat Punto EVO is launched at price of Rs. 4.55 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). There is enormous difference in styling and quality between the two versions, but the offer on table may be compelling for some to go for the Grande Punto.
