According to the Brazilian reports, the next generation Fiat Punto will launch in Brazil during August 2017.
The new hatchback, codenamed Fiat X6H , will ditch the 'Punto' name. The upcoming car will be the successor to both the Palio and the Punto. The X6H is also rumored to get a 4-wheel drive replacing the Fiat Idea Adventure from the line-up.
The all-new Punto will be based on a Fiat 326 platform which is used for the Palio and Uno, and will measure under 4 meters long, and come with a new 1.3-litre, as well as the 1.6-litre and 1.8-litre EtorQ engines. The car will be offered with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Spy shots reveal a much more premium interior than the model currently sold, while the exterior will feature a unique styling, unlike anything we've seen from Fiat lately.
In June, Sergio Marchionne, CEO of FCA, had announced the cease of Punto's production . It's still not clear if the next-gen Punto will be launched in India along wih the global markets.
