In terms of styling, the car underwent an upgrade program at Fiat's Centro Stile, with the exterior featuring revised front and rear. The new bumpers are now housing the headlights and the tailights, with the overall body shortened by 406 centimeters. The other external dimensions remain the same, with a width of 169 cm, a height of 149 cm and a wheelbase of 251 cm. Inside, the Punto Evo features a redesigned dashboard, restyled seats, storage compartments and dials.
As for features, the latest version of the Blue&Me - TomTom infotainment system that allows the driver to manage calls, navigation or information functions with the help of a color touchscreen.
Safety features include 2 front airbags, 2 front side airbags, 2 window bags and a driver knee airbag plus ABS, EBD, ESP and Hill-holder.
The engines are, as we said, compliant with Euro 5 regulations, but the MultiAir technology helps reduce CO2 emissions by 10 percent. At the same time, it increases power by 10 percent and torque by 15 percent. Start-stop will be offered as well as standard on all petrol and diesel engines. An LPG-fuelled version is also offered and is expected to boost autonomy to 1,500 km in extra-urban cycle.
The Punto Evo will go on sale in Europe in the second half of October.
