Thats because when they say "render", what they actually intend to convey is that they did a photoshop job on company published images of other cars and made a few corrections here and there just to make it look different.

Who cares if it doesn't resemble the spy shots at all!

Here's one of the actual pics they played around with. Its a Tipo hatchback.

Yes, except that autosegredos.com (meaning 'automotive secrets'?!) is nothing like the hack auto websites in India: they actually have insiders at FCA Brazil they know or source their deliberate-leaks-from, and over the past few years their renderings have been very close (Fiat MOBI, Toro, Jeep Compass.) Besides, it is entirely clear that the 'new Punto' and related 'new grand Sienna' are indeed LatAm versions, somewhat smaller, of the Tipo/Aegea models, in styling and in market-concept NOT in platform or powertrains.

Except (partially only) for Autocar India Indian automotive sites are rumour milling machines, instead, or PR outlets for certain firms?

I suspect this 'new punto' model/platform+architecture (a heavily updated Palio one) will have no life in India as a FIAT, instead of as-a-JEEP, unless Tata Motors adopts this new Fiat family as its own, here, made at their JV Ranjangaon plant? (new Punto+new Grand Sienna, also there are the new Uno, new Mobi, new 'firefly' small torquey petrol engines.) It seems to me Fiat has no sizeable rhd or lhd export markets for exports of an Indian-made 'new Punto', 'new grand Sienna', after all, thus ruining the investment case imo?

Let's see, i suppose matters will clear-up on the FIAT front only after FCA India launches the Jeep c-suv and b-suv, i.e., not before 2018?

Although not officially confirm, our report found that hatch X6H and the X6S sedan will have their designs modified in relation to similar European
Quote:
In front, the X6H has more changes relative to the European Type. The hood, for example, is longer and is with the front grille, hive format at the national model. X6H's lights have distinctive format giving identity to the model. In the lower portion of the bumper, the national model will have an air vent in the shape of a beehive making integration of auxiliary headlamps.
