Nice scoop there. It seems to me that the launch of Fiat Punto LPG/CNG is around the corner.

Did you get a chance to enter the car? If yes, did you check the boot?

Though the Trendz logo looks awesome, I didn't like the color. But, I for sure feel that Fiat Punto in Canary Yellow would look seriously awesome.

Why on earth should Fiat plonk 1.6L Torque engine when they have 1.4 T-Jet?

I do agree with you guys that Fiat should launch a sport version of Fiat Punto powered by 1.4 T-Jet and 1.6 MJD. There might be a few takers for the same.

Thanks. Tried to break in but unfortunately the Car was locked.

Yes. Agree with you, when FIAT has the Awesome T-Jet Engine why will they launch the 1.6. IIRC, the 1.6 Engine Production has been stopped.

I am sure that after the launch of the Volkswagen Polo 1.6 Version, FIAT must be giving a thought for launching the T-Jet Punto, but my question is will that be a viable option ? as the Petrol prices are rising every now and then.

Another member to already squeezed punto family.Its a good move to introduce a CNG version but i think its high time that FIAT officials scrap some of the non moving models.

The trendz is just like a typical limited edition that was planned for launch, it does not have a CNG/LPG kit. The punto CNG is called "natural power."

....and here is the pic of the car after registration.

I came across this picture in another forum and this picture was clicked by a friend of mine, namely Ratan.

I wish you were successful in breaking into the car. Sigh.

Yes, the Fiat 1.6 TORQUE engine has been discontinued some few years back.

PS: Correct me, if wrong.

First of all, Fiat might not expecting the public to buy Fiat Punto 1.4 T-Jet in large numbers. Remember the Fiat Palio 1.6? Despite being the most powerful hatchback then, it didn't sell well.

Moreover, Fiat Punto 1.4 T-Jet is targeted for enthusiasts who prefer performance over FE. IMHO, low mileage figures and increasing petrol prices might not stop an enthusiast from buying a performance oriented vehicle.

At least, I'm happy to see that there are a few people like me who feels that Fiat Punto would look awesome in Canary Yellow.

FIAT, are you listening?

Trendz seems like a nice touch given to Punto to meet the urban demand.I like to colour too and the thin line decaling is very graceful.

Amith, check the Registration Number of the Car clicked by Ratan, it is the same car which i clicked. I think the Car is doing rounds to all the dealers i suppose for garnering the response to that particular model.

Yeah, wish the car was not locked
