I dont think this will make it here so soon since the stile has just settled here. Btw the current gen looks better than this IMO. I like the rear though

somehow the current palio loooks better than this "novo palio" the front is a pull off from the fiat bravo....... the rear somehow seems veryyyy sedate.......

no ways this will be launched soon, Fiat will shoot itself in its foot by doing that, only recently they have found the meaning of the word consistency, and some how the Stile is selling some #s. this move will prove risky for them and give a wrong image

To be very ambitious, I wish it replaces the current one. It's too old and reminds of M800 now.
But in practical terms, it may take a while if they do launch this here.
But why is Palio launched in South american countries and other lesser developed/so called countries?

this version looks great from the side angles and front. But I guess it would not be launched here before 2010.

didnt really like it but seeing a video has somewhat changed my opinion slightly. seems to carry itself well



the rear especially the windshield looks a step back. afaik this wasnt designed in italy

edit a better quality vid (can forward the vid to 2mins and then watch)

Very unlikely that Palio will be facelifted again in India!

Grande Punto will take over the reins from Palio, though Palio Stile may be continued as a entry-level hatch from Fiat.

Agree with techno on this. The current one seems to look better from the outside. This one may have the chic look, but not the image Palio brings to mind.

I doubt they will launch anytime soon. If they have plans of launching after 2010 they should rather forget it. They should rather concentrate on Grande Punto , Linea and maybe launch the Fiat idea. They should atleast upgrade interiors of Present Palio . I know it wont happen , but just hope they do it!

The back end of the new palio is better than the existing one.Front is more or less like the bravo.Maybe they are standardising the shape.I like the old palio S10 type front though.

I dont think this will be launched for the same reason Technocrat said. They would have put money of the Stile for now.

The rear of the Brazilian Palio resembles the 800. Fiat would be better off keeping the existing outer shell and overhaul, yes overhaul..not update, the interiors. The latino Palio interiors are a cut above:

Once the GP comes along, Fiat can drop the Stile into a slightly lower price bracket. This along with a genuine customer service push, easy availability of spares and a smart media campaign can revive the Palio's fortunes.
