New Fiat Punto EVO to launch by first week of August 2014
Fiat Punto EVO launch will take place in first week of August 2014, as confirmed by Fiat official during Media Drive yesterday. Punto facelift is made significantly more attractive than the model it is replacing, on exteriors as well as interiors.
Interiors get dual tone theme on dashboard, door panels and seat fabric, which is equally posh. White and Black interiors are new and sensual. Top end diesel variant is named Sport, and comes with full black interior shade. This is powered by 1.3 litre MultiJet engine producing 93 PS and 209 Nm.
Rest of diesel variants of new Punto EVO, Active, Dynamic and Emotion are powered by same MultiJet engine generating only 76 PS and 197 Nm. Emotion trim in Punto EVO petrol is top of line, sporting 1.4 litre PDA engine pushing 89.5 PS and 115 Nm, while Active and Dynamic models are propelled by 1.2 litre FIRE unit giving out 68 PS and 96 Nm only.
With next gen Hyundai i20 launching in a week after Fiat Punto EVO hits showrooms, then Volkswagen Polo GT variants showing up in a fortnight, it will be interesting to see how Punto EVO will be received in the market. Not to mention Maruti Swift facelift coming soon.
