Default Super HOT!!! New FIAT PALIO :::Genuine PICS::

Hi All,

Please pardon me for being idle for a lon time coz of Official duties.
After quite a long gap I'm back.
This time with a new bunch of surprises....
YES!!!!!!!! I mean it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any Guess dears.....
ITS NONE OTHER THAN THE NEW FIAT PALIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get the pics at















Eventhough i'm not allowed to drive that, I got a couple of chances to start it and had a play with the accelerator pedal. The exhaust note is quite similar to old palio; but believe me.. This is much mire revv friendly than any other car of its segment. This is a revv friendly GEM...!!!!
The interiers are enhanced with best of the segment fabrics and roof linings. The Dual coloured Steering wheel is a class act. The Clutch has become more smooother than ever. The lights are also the best with a very good focus and spread..(Hope its the BEST).
What to say about the front appearence...I dont have words to say...Let you decide!!!

Just like to say once more... My love has grown stronger with this new Palio!! Kudoz Fiat!! You have done your part quite excellent!!! Now its the turn for TATA and FIAT dealers!!! Please make the Palio owners feel proud...

Nice, so its a PALIO Stile now. Is it already arrived at the dealerships.

They've tried their best to fix up the interiors, but IMHO they should ahve kept the exterior the same and changed the interior.

its pretty much the same ...a lil styling effort involved though..however if they still do have the 1.6L then its a brilliant machine.

I fully agree with M power, that fiat should've changed the interior first. Changing just the interior trim does not make a difference to the old looking ones.

The exterior looks good though. But after owning one (still do own it but not driving it any more) for 'bout 5 yrs now, I would never even touch a new fiat vehicle even with a barge pole!

There is already a separate thread on the subject
Scoop pics :Facelifted Palio to be launched in April 07!

Why are we creating newer threads on the same topic. Moderators please see if the above is valid and take appropriate action

@pogu - think that thread is pretty old by now so guess its ok

@shineshine - nice pics. wouldve loved it if you had got a pic of the rear interior as well.
the biege does some change in perception atleast rather than the existing dull grey/black.

now i m really wondering what that Stile means technically? actually i dont see it more than old wine new bottle kinds! And is there any real info on the diesel version? as for colours for sure, we know that there is milky white and steel grey from the pics. should wait and watch what other colours will be there. Do you think the 1.6 will have the same front grille? i am also seeing mails on issues on the palio body (doors, windows, tyres etc) ever since it started getting totally localized. somehow the NV 2004 models never had any such problems. but i guess its all about how one drives the car itself and maintains its upkeep.

the rear light assembly is pretty flimsy unlike the older models. the older models were truly hot hatch like in looks as well and probably the boot space even increased a bit due to the hatch sort of boot. the new one shows pretty straight line boot door which might reduce boot space a bit i feel. the tyre profile seems to be smaller?! the earlier palio's tyres had big looks.

Boring.....? I feel its more that they havend blended the design well . For eg. The beige centre in the steering, Mock aluminiu finish in the centre console. For a change they could have atleasted changed those switches(especially the hazard light)and thrown in mock carbon fibre finish . That would have given the car a sporty image.
My opnion , Looks good from outside and looks weird inside. And no , am not anti-Fiat guy infact am a full-2-fiat guy

The Interiors should have been reworked upon more extensively, The two colour combination does not gel well with black and then The Meter console looks just quite outdated..!

The exterior styling looks great even though the Clear Jewel type lens and Mesh Grill + Fog lamps look like a direct lift from TATA V2 2007.

May this be a new light in Palio's journey..!
