A raft of interior and exterior styling changes and more equipment will define the Punto Evo when it comes to India in 2013

Expected: Mid 2013, Price: Rs. 4.5 - 7.5 lakh

 

After taking back the reins from Tata for its sales and distribution network in India, Fiat clearly has its task cut out. However, it is also refreshing it model line-up to boost in India.

 

Its most affordable car, the Grande Punto has been around for a while now and Fiat plans to give it a mid-life face-lift. In all probability, sold abroad as the Punto Evo, is what will be launched here. 

 

The Punto Evo features distinctive interior and exterior styling changes and should pack in more equipment as well. It will have a new front bumper, grille, refreshed styling, new wheels, tail lights and interiors and is likely to be lighter and more fuel efficient.

The 1.2-litre and 1.4 FIRE petrol engine as well as the 1.3-litre MultiJet will continue to do duty but we would have loved to see the 1.4-litre MultiAir petrol engine under its hood. Along with a refreshed Punto Evo and an updated Linea,  Fiat needs to ensure effective after sales service before the cars are launched to exploit their full market potential.
