The Fiat Punto as we know it, has been around for quite some time now. It was first introduced in 2009 and received a makeover five years later in 2014. The car now has a powerful Abarth version but still uses the same chassis as the original Punto.
The next-generation Fiat Punto was recently spotted testing in Brazil. The car has been spotted with a tiptronic gearbox and other competent features to rival the Volkswagen Polo.
The exterior of the car is heavily camouflaged, but it retains the side profile and taillights mounted on the d-pillar. Interior shots reveal the tiptronic automatic transmission with paddle shifters. For driver aids, the new Fiat Punto will get ESP and a start-stop system. The new Fiat Punto has borrowed the steering wheel from the Fiat Egea which is equipped with controls for the infotainment system along with the cruise control function.
The car is expected to make its global debut in 2017.
