Spied – Fiat Punto Evo (facelift) reaches a dealer stockyard
Posted on: Jul 9, 2014 - 1:13pm IST
The Fiat Punto Evo slated to launch in end of July or early August, has been spied once again, this time in the Tuscan Wine exterior color, at a dealer stockyard, by Team BHP member Mr. Chakravarthy.
The top-end diesel variant that was spied earlier wore a ’90 HP’ badge on the hatch door but the latest spyshots show the car devoid of a variant badge. On closer observation, the dual-tone color theme of the interior can be spotted (the 90 hp diesel variant has a full black color theme).
The Punto Evo is the second hatchback in India to offer a rear AC vent, the first being the Hyundai Grand i10.
Powertrain options would be retained although a few minor tweaks cannot be ruled out. The Punto’s engine lineup includes a 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel (in two states of tune) engines. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard on all variants.
The presence of the car in a dealership stockyard is further proof that the launch is within reach.
