Default Palio Stile Launch

This morning Fiat launched the new Palio Stile and inaugurated the Ranjangaon facility, at the hands of Vilasrao Deshmukh. I was lucky to be there, albeit for a short while, and get these pics...(sorry bout the quality, but no lighting....)

Everybodys familiar with what it looks like by now, though the major change i belive is the adoption of basically the Uno 1.1 motor...the 1.6 continues, and i guess a 1.3 multijet will follow...







Interiors get the usual dose of new colors, plastics continue to dissapoint...


We travelled to the plant in a friends 57 Fiat, so I couldnt resist these pics...




Note the new side indicators....the one pictured below is the palio, the one below that is a 1962 Fiat...hmmm...! (Actually the Uno side indicator is very similar to the one for the 57 Fiat...)

This is a great work KarlosDeville!!!!

Please notice the two cars at the parking explains my post (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...tml#post403710 (Super HOT!!! New FIAT PALIO :::Genuine PICS::)). It seems that the ground clearance has increased by almost 20mm

BTW, Karlos....

Did you get any information on the pricing???

I think the starting model will be having a price with 3 L and the AC/PS model somewhere around 3.5 and the full version at 3.8-4.0????

What about your opinion folks???

This time they have got some damn S**Y colours to start with.
I think FIAT has finally learned from their lessons.

Are the stock tyres thinner than before? They look thinner than the old 165 profiles.

Nice pics there Karlos! Thanks for sharing with us!

Palio Stile has got fresh and contemperory looks! Though the interior is more or less the same as NV model except the beige shade!
Good that 1.6 option is available too!

Now, they should plonk the 1.3 Multijet too before Swift D runs away to glory!

fiat has destroyed the look of the car by raising the car even more....the gap between the tyres and the wheel arches is pronounced,its started looking a little bit like the indica with the gaps in the wheel arches.
