Pros : Powerful engine
Cons : there are a lot of them
I bought Fiat Palio Stile sports model six months ago. I read the power its engine has and the really low price made me buy it. It suited my budget and I trusted Fiat as my father had Fiat Premier, when I was a kid. That car had a very good engine.
Exterior: Fiat Palio looks fine from the exterior. But the front grille looks really odd on it. It is a long car though, which has its benefits. The rear bumper is really bad and makes the car look bad too.
Interior: It has really poor interiors. By poor I mean to say outdated or old looking. The steering wheel, the dashboard, the gear knob, the AC vents, the music system, the seats, the pads, everything feels outdated. The only thing good in there is the space. It has more space than any and every hatchback in the market. The trunk is large and you can fit whole family's luggage there.
Engine and performance: This is the best thing about Palio Stile. Its engine is 1.6L, Petrol Engine which has 100ps @ 5500rpm power. I think this is the most powerful hatchback available in India. This was the main reason I bought this car. The top speed and acceleration is also really good. I've had really good experience of driving it on highways. The per litre average it returns is also good.
Safety: This is another bad thing about Palio Stile. The car has almost no safety features. There is no ABS, there are no airbags, and there is no EBD. Thank god Fiat gave it central locking atleast.
Overall: The car is a flop because of the outdated features. The engine is good, but the car lacks many important features which prevent people from buying it. Fiat should work on this car and relaunch it with advanced features and better looks. But for now, I would suggest people to look for other companies' cars.
