Spied – 2012 Fiat Palio hatchback
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
The 2012 Fiat Palio (codenamed Project 326) has been under testing since ages. We got you a spy video of the Palio way back in October 2010. Countless renderings later, we have some more spy pics for you straight from Brazil. The new Palio is a little larger than the current one and gets more sophisticated styling.
The guy who took the spyshots tells us that up front, the headlights will be similar to the Punto while the grille and radiator vent will be different.
The waist line is high as in the Punto. At the rear, the lamps start thin at the top and round up at the bottom.
Early estimate suggest that the hatch will have the engine option of Fire EVO 1.4 and 1.6 16V E.torQ.
The Novo Palio should be release internationally around May-June 2011. We’re hopeful of Fiat bringing this model to India after the international debut.
