The refreshed Punto has already arrived at several dealerships.

The exteriors of the hatchback see newly designed headlights, grille (inspired by the Fiat Viaggio sedan), bumpers, alloy wheels, tweaked taillights and a new Orange body color. Inside, the Punto Evo will get its dashboard from the refreshed 2014 Linea. Spy shots have shown the Punto Evo with an all-black dashboard, and a dual-tone black-and-beige dashboard, indicating that both trims could be offered to customers.
