The facelifted Fiat Punto is launching soon and fresh images of the car testing reveals more about this hatch. The Fiat Punto has been around for some time now and a facelift was overdue. Along with the new Fiat Linea, the new Punto will give a major boost to this hatch.
The styling of the car had earlier been revealed through an image and suggests a more aggressive design language similar to the Fiat Avventura. The front now wears a sharper look with a new grille, headlamps and bumper. The changed front gives it more presence and it looks striking. We hear Fiat will also throw in new colours to entice buyers even more.
From the side things stay the same but the rear gets new tail-lamps and a new rear bumper. Inside as it is with the current Linea/Punto, the whole dash is carried from the facelifted Linea also which means you have a new centre console which is more modern looking now. Space is the same as before.
Things will also remain the same with the engines too with the petrol/diesel engines carried forward. Overall the new look makes the Punto a strong contender but it will not have it easy with new rivals coming in also like the facelifted Swift and Polo not to mention the Tata Bolt and new Hyundai i20.
