Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!

Will be offered only in 5-door version.

The current Fiat Punto (Fiat Grand Punto) was unveiled at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show (2005 IAA). Around twelve years later, the sub-compact hatchback will enter its fourth generation. The fourth-gen 2017 Fiat Punto is currently under development in Brazil, internally known under the codename ‘Fiat X6H’. Reports say that the next-gen Fiat Punto will be offered only in the 5-door version.

The 2017 Fiat Punto is being developed in Brazil under ‘Fiat X6H’ codename, and is due in the first half of 2017.

The all-new Fiat Punto should wear the brand’s latest design language introduced on the Fiat Egea/Fiat Tipo, which will next be carried forward to the Fiat Tipo Hatchback and Fiat Tipo Estate in next year. A speculative rendering from Omni Auto shows how the 2017 Fiat Punto may look like in that case. The front fascia looks even more stylish with those sleek, swept-back headlamps.

Spyshots of a Brazilian test mule’s cabin showed the Punto having pillar-mounted speaker, cruise control functions on the steering wheel and steering-mounted gear paddles.

Reports from South America, where the new model will be manufactured and sold from the first half of 2017, claims that the hatch will have three petrol engine choices – one based on the new 1.4 GSE (Global Small Engine) platform that has an aluminium block, the E-Torq 1.6-litre motor and the E-Torq 1.8-litre mill. The smallest engine is expected to produce around 100 hp and about 140 Nm.

In Europe, a smaller 0.9-litre TwinAir turbocharged petrol engine may be offered to take on the Ford Fiesta EcoBoost. Additionally, select markets may get the petrol-CNG option as well.
