Fiat Punto Evo Abarth Preview

The Indian car market is expected to see a reversal of trends or so as consumers will now move back to picking diesel cars for the sake of purpose rather than running costs. This trend has been achieved thanks to the reducing gap between the price of petrol and diesel.

The Indian car market is expected to see a reversal of trends or so as consumers will now move back to picking diesel cars for the sake of purpose rather than running costs. This trend has been achieved thanks to the reducing gap between the price of petrol and diesel. Looking to get ahead in the game is Fiat with its T-Jet powered Punto EVO hatchback in the launch pipeline. This car will be the Abarth Punto.

Exterior

The Abarth Punto EVO gets new paint schemes, an Abarth logo in place of the Fiat logo and the T-Jet badging. There are also some cosmetic changes like a Scorpion decal, and red Abarth stickering at the sides set it apart from the current model on sale. The car features red-coloured OVRMs and a new pattern for the alloy wheels.

Interior

The interior of the Abarth Punto also gets some minor changes. . The FIAT logo on the steering wheel is replaced by the Abarth logo and the instrument cluster also gets an 'Abarth' badging in the centre. The cabin features new sporty pedals and comes with different seats with coloured stitching, while the remaining layout and equipment list is the same as the regular model of the hatchback.

Engine and gearbox

The Punto EVO currently gets two petrol mills. The base version is the 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine producing 67bhp while the higher spec is a 1.4-litre four-pot motor producing 89bhp. On the other hand, the T-Jet engine powering the Abarth Punto is a four-cylinder 1.4-litre mill that produces 140bhp and 200Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. With a lowered ride height, disc brakes on all wheels, a stiffer suspension and this engine and gearbox combination the car might hit all the right chords.

Price and competition

We expect that the Abarth Punto will be priced in the range of Rs 50,000 to Rs 70,000 more than the naturally aspirated versions and is expected to go on sale later this year.
