Plenty of surprises in store for you this month as carmakers bring out the launches



Eight new car launches in August 2014




It’s going to be a busy month for carmakers as the festive season nears. There are as many as eight new launches in August ranging from all new cars to facelifts to engine updates. Take a look at what lies in store – 



Fiat Punto Evo




1. Fiat Punto Evo 

When: August 5


Fiat is the first to gear up for the upcoming festive months with the Punto Evo. It’s a extensively updated Punto with new exterior and interior design and with it, makes the Punto Evo a lot more appealing than before. At the heart of the Punto Evo is a choice of three engines - two 4-cylinder petrol engines, a 1.2 and a 1.4-litre and a 1.3-litre, turbocharged, 4-cylinder, diesel engine. The diesel engine will feature two states of tune, a base model 75PS and a top-of-the-line 93PS version.


The front end goes completely under the knife with this facelift. The large front grille blends well with the all new swept back headlights and the redesigned front bumper gets similar trapezoidal chrome bezels for the fog lamps. The rear bumpers sport a similar design as well with chrome surrounds for the rear fog lamp and reversing lamp. The LED taillights add an up-market feel to the rear. While a lot of changes have been made to the front and rear of the car, the profile remains unchanged. The only noteworthy difference is the alloys which are different for the petrol and the diesel variant.


On the inside, it’s a familiar sight if you’ve driven the new Linea as the Punto Evo borrows the dashboard, centre console and instrument cluster. The Punto Evo is one of the larger hatchbacks in our country and can seat three passengers in the rear comfortably. It will take on the Polo, the new i20, which will be launched a week later and the Honda Jazz that’s coming early next year in the premium hatchback segment.


Price: Rs 4.55-7.2 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi
