Fiat has launched the much awaited and much spied Punto Evo hatchback which is essentially a facelifted version of the existing Punto. The Fiat Punto was launched way back in 2008 and it is about time a thorough upgrade came about . With the new launch Fiat hopes to dig deep in to the segment and compete heavily with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift , Volkswagen Polo or even the upcoming cars like the Hyundai i20 and Tata Bolt . The Fiat Punto Evo will be priced from 4.55 to 7.2 Lakhs ( ex-showroom Kochi)
The new Fiat Punto will come with a host of new and refreshing changes all through out . The car will be available in 3 Engine options namely a 1.2 and 1.4 Liter petrol , which produces 69 and 89bhp of power respectively and a 1.3 Liter Diesel variant which comes with two tuned option : a 75 PS and a 93PS one . This ensures that the Punto has ample power options to cater the needs of all its prospective buyers. The transmission is 5-speed manual.
Fiat has managed to bring many new changes to both the Exterior and Interior of the Evo . Somehow they have managed to make the car even more beautiful while still maintaining the original punto styling. If you have seen the pictures of the Fiat Avventura showcased at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo , you are bound to feel that some design aspects have been lifted of the car (atleast at the front). The Fiat Punto Evo features a redesigned bumper and grille ,comes with new set of Headlamps and an aggressive foglamp housing . Chrome lining has been provided along the perimeters.The rear gets new LED tail lamps and its overall design complements whats seen at the front . Different alloy options have been provided for the petrol and Diesel , which is an interesting feature of the New Punto .
The Punto Evo seems to have lifted some of the interior features of the Linea ,like the dashboard and the consoles . This makes the interiors look much more premium than the earlier version . Overall the Interiors seems great for a car in the segment, providing ample legroom and space.
Bookings of the car has already started .
