Fiat Punto Sport put to test – is on GQ Expedition Challenge

The most powerful hatchback in India – Fiat Punto Sport is soon going to register its name in the Limca Book of Records by covering a distance of 6041 kms in less than 75 hours. If all goes well, the 90 hp power Fiat hatch will be able to travel this distance in record time. And it would be quite similar to its brand that has made a comeback in very less time. After a long spell of being with only two cars that consisted a sedan – Fiat Linea and another small car Fiat Punto, the brand overall remained silent during its early phases. But as soon as it has parted itself from Tata from distribution, it has opened up its own showrooms and has recently launched the Punto Sport most power diesel hatchback in India.
