Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: How to get cars added...

Fiat Stilo.
Why??? well its the car that took Fiat into the world of beating VW and Ford on Quality!!


Personally I thinkj the Hatch and the MW should get separate polls but understand if they just get 1. there both cool anyway!

That's what I like about it! Something I think is very cool is the fact it doesn't advertise its plushness. Sadly, they're also quite rare, which makes them interesting.

If the normal model mk1 Punto goes on the cool wall, the normal model mk2 and Grande Puntos should go on there too.

Coolness doesn't come from origin of components or reliability etc

It comes from how something "stands out", tries to be different, does something unique... or has a character.

The Croma as an example does an estate/mpv thing and whoever buys one has decided not to go for the "usual", which gives it a certain level of coolness IMO.
Thanks puntofan01 thanked for this post

Wasn't the mk2 Renault 5 the first car to have the lights in the c-pillar though? The point I was making was that if the normal mk1 Punto should go on the cool wall, so should the normal mk2 Punto and Grande Punto. I could go further: the normal 2003-2010 Panda, the normal model Brava, the normal model Tipo, etc. IMO, the only thing that makes the boggo mk1 Punto different to the boggo versions of the mk2, Grande, and Evo is that it was the 1st car to bear the Punto nameplate.

Precisely. Pretty much all Fiats have a certain character that you can't quite put your finger on. You just sense that they were designed by people who love cars, rather than just see them as machines. The current Panda and 500 hatchback have a character which the vw up, Hyundai i10, Kia Picanto, Toyota aygo etc lack. The same goes for the Punto vs the ford fiesta, latest Renault Clio, Peugeot 208, VW Polo, Toyota Yaris, etc. Character is something that is very hard to define, yet very noticeable in its absence, if that makes sense?
