2009 Fiat Palio
Following the Linea and Grande Punto, Fiat may refurbish its decade old workhorse Palio. Brazilian market will see this facelifted Palio first. The facelifted palio features changes in exteriors and interiors. At the front, Fiat has given the 2009 palio redesigned bumper,new headlamps and new grille. The new grille is modern and cuts into the bumper well giving the 2009 palio a contemporary look. We seen this kind of styling in every modern hatchbacks - Hyundai i10 and Suzukiís A-star are obvious examples. Seems like Fiat has sourced parts from siena for this 2009 palio. However the rear remains unchanged. It was recently reported by autocar Fiat may give palio an all new dashboard to extend the carís lifeterm. Joining the dots, we can expect a moderate facelift for palio in 2009 or early 2010. Fiat will launch the facelifted palio in Brazil in a few weeks tims. As the next generation Palio is expected by end 2010 or early 2011, expect this facelifted 2009 palio soon in India.

Palios interiors require a new treatment.
Grill is nice, but i think current look is better.
They hsould launch Grande Punto instead of faceliftted palio.
Many here will not agree, but Palio has a bad name in Indian market.

I don't believe that Fiat will give any facelifts to the Palio in the near future. Right now they are concentrating on launching the Linea which will be followed by the Punto.
Yes, Palio has a bad name in Indian market, but one can see more of them on the road with each passing day. Infact I see more of the Petrol versions rather than the MJD.

This is a 'Fiat Palio Gone Bad'. Looks like a blunt nose, Looks like someone just chopped the nose off. Just a grill change can't be called a new Fiat Palio.
Fiat should let go of the Palio and concentrate on getting the GP in ASAP.
