Spied – Fiat Punto Evo’s dual-tone interior snapped up close
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
Here are the latest set of interior spyshots of the Fiat Punto Evo clicked by members of Team Fiat Moto Club Facebook page. The refreshed hatchback’s dashboard, which puts on an entirely new design and layout, is shared with the Linea facelift that was launched earlier this year.
The centre console receives a glossy black treatment while the air conditioner vents on either side of the dashboard are surrounded by fake carbon fibre trims. This particular variant is equipped with automatic climate control.
On the outside, apart from the restyled front and rear fascias, the Punto Evo gets outside mirrors with integrated LED turn indicators and a new set of sporty alloy wheel designs.

The engine and transmission lineup would be carried over from the current Fiat Punto which means customers would get to choose from three engines – a 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.3-litre diesel (in two power stages) – all sending power to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission.
In a related news, the Europe-spec 2014 Fiat Punto has been launched in Indonesia in two petrol variants with an AMT.
