Old vs New – Fiat Grande Punto vs Fiat Punto Evo (facelift)


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!

The Fiat Punto Evo with a extensively reworked front fascia will be launched in the first week of August and here is our visual comparison between the new and the old car.

Tata Fiat Punto Evo vs Fiat Grande Punto
The Punto Evo (left) gets a whole new front fascia.

When viewed head-on, there is nothing common between the Grande Punto and the Punto Evo. The teardrop headlamps and low-slung narrow nose have been replaced by larger stretched back headlamps and chrome-lined front grille with black honeycomb meshing. The bumper is also new complete with chrome finished foglight enclosures.

Tata Fiat Punto Evo vs Fiat Grande Punto rear
The rear bumper of the updated hatchback (right) gets a massive chrome insert.

The only changes to the side are updated wing mirrors with LED blinkers and new alloy wheels.

On the rear, the new top-end variant, the Punto Evo Sport, comes with a roof mounted spoiler. The combination lights on all variants retain the shape but internal detailing is revamped. The outer edge is lined with LED tubing while the inner side gets clear lens bulbs for turn indicators. The new rear bumper features a chrome insert which houses the rear foglight and reverse light.

The interior of the Punto Evo has been derived from the new Linea. The dashboard has been redesigned and the quality of the materials used has gone up.

The Fiat Punto Evo would be launched in the first week of August. Be sure to read our review of the Punto Evo Sport 90 HP diesel.
