The soon-to-launched 90 bhp Fiat Punto wouldn't be called the 'Punto Sport' a company official clarified when Indian Autos Blog inquired them about the car earlier this month.
The 'powerful' Fiat Punto, which would get VGT (Variable geometry turbocharger) version of the 1.3 Multijet engine from the Linea, is expected to be launched in the first week of July, 2010. This would boost the diesel Punto's power from 76 bhp to 90 bhp.
Could Fiat use the same variant name for the new powerful diesel Punto?
Fiat could also use this variant name for its 'powerful' models, like the T-Jet Linea with a turbocharged 1.4l petrol engine developing 120 bhp. The powerful Linea T-jet would be launched by August, 2010.
