Set to be called the Punto Pure, the original Punto hatchback will be once again seen in Fiat India showrooms across the country.

Pegged to enter Fiat India showrooms by the end of January 2016, Fiat Punto Pure hatchback is a part of the company strategy to clear out stocks of the old Punto which are yet unsold following launch of the Punto Evo in August 2014.

Fiat Punto, which competes with the Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai Elite i20 and Maruti Baleno was offered in two engine options that include a 1.3 liter Multijet diesel engine and 1.4 FIRE petrol engine each of which were mated to 5 speed manual gearbox.

These will include a 1.3 liter Multijet diesel engine offering 75 bhp power and 197 Nm torque and 1.2 and 1.4 liter petrol engines capable of 68 bhp power and 96 Nm torque and 90 bhp power and 115 Nm torque respectively. All engines will be mated to 5 speed manual transmissions.

Fiat Punto was first launched in India in 2011. It was discontinued in 2014, just before the launch of Punto Evo. Considering that these will be old and limited in number, pricing will be very aggressive, so as to attract a good number of customers. More details will be revealed once the car is launched later this month.
