Fiat India plans to re-launch the old Fiat Punto as the Fiat Punto Pure, which will make its presence felt at the 2016 Auto Expo in February.

New (or shall we say old) Fiat Punto Pure has been teased for the first time ahead of its debut at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo next week. Fiat Punto Pure is nothing by the old Punto which was discontinued by the company after the launch of new Punto Evo. With the launch of new Punto Pure, Fiat India plans on improving sales.

Fiat Punto Pure will not receive any mechanical changes, but it will be seen with some cosmetic updates in its interiors. Fiat Punto Pure will be powered by two engine options to include a 1.3 liter MultiJet turbocharged diesel engine and a 1.4 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine with both engines mated to a 5 speed manual transmission.
