Spied – 2012 Fiat Palio body shell and dashboard
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 next generation Fiat Palio is showing off itself all over Brazil. It is almost an onslaught of Palio spy pics all over the internet. We have earlier brought you the closest rendering for the new Palio till date. Codenamed Project 326, the 2012 Fiat Palio will be first released in Brazil. IAB feels there is a good chance for the 2012 Palio in India.
The new Palio will be a complete redesign from platform to exterior. But you will be able to see some heavy influences from its elder sister Punto. The interiors as you can see here is undergoing a complete overhaul. The AC vents will no longer be square. The steering wheel sports a chunkier grip and a modern two-tone, three spoke design.
It will be available in a range of petrol and diesel options. Expect the debut in late 2011. Will the new Palio realize Fiat India’s compact car dreams?
