Spyshots: 2010 Fiat Grande Punto Facelift
There's not much to say about the upcoming model because it will be 90 percent the same with the current version, bringing absolutely no modification at the rear. Interiors will be slightly upgraded, while engines will remains unchanged.
Currently offered in 3- and 5-door configurations, Fiat Grande Punto relies on a wide array of engines, starting with the 1.2-liter unit developing 65 horsepower and ending with the 1.9 Multijet diesel option bringing up to 129 horsepower. Overall, there are 8 engines included in the range, four petrol and four diesels.
Prices for the revised series are expected to be exactly the same until 2012 when the Italian automaker plans to launch an all-new generation Grande Punto.
Although it's still unofficial, the facelifted Grande Punto is likely to make its debut this September at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The first version of the car was unveiled at the 2005 edition of the same show, with sales starting later that year. The model was built on the Fiat/GM SCCS platform and was styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro.
Grande Punto is also sold in a number of non-European markets, including Mexico, Chile, Dominican republic, South America, South Africa and India.
