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?

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.

Quote:
Both the Hatch ( X6H) and the Sedan will be made on a stretched version of the 326 platform, currently used by the Palio. The idea is to get enough close X6S, 2.60 m centre distance of the Linea, what the approach of rivals such as Chevrolet Cobalt and Honda City.

All FIAT India has to do is launch this with the 90HP MJD and 1.4 T-Jet engine options to...

I wonder how the info gets out of the company. Anyways, to share or rather correct what you shared it's actually a mini architecture for LATAM that will have common parts across few of the upcoming models to share the assembly line. Infact, there was even a proposal to include a Jeep model into the list. Wonder what happened to that.
Now don't ask me how I know this info

Punto's replacement - project X6H to be launched in May 2017. Now spied testing in final production form. Linea's replacement -Project X6S will launch in the second half of 2017

Inner details leaked - Will be available in a choice of 3 engines.
Quote:
The base version- 'Attractive' will be offered with the new engines 1.0 3 cylinder of Firefly (77 HP) and 1.3 to 4 cylinders (109 HP), MT or Dualogic automated (this only in 1.3).
Already the 1.8 engine E-TorQ (139 HP) will equip the 'Essence' and 'Sporting' versions, with five-speed manual or automatic six-same set of truck Toro.
There are plans for a 1.3 16V turbo for a possible replacement for Punto T-Jet, but only later.
Quote:
Stop-Start system will come in 1.3 and 1.8 models, while the electric Dual Drive direction (with key City to stay 50% lighter) will be standard item in all versions. The stability control should be optional in the 1.0 and 1.3, but the 1.8 series.

The car with a length of around four metres will have elements of European Fiat Tipo front grille and taillights that invade the foil lid of the trunk. In front, the long hood advances on the grid, as in the Mobi. Already the big rear door visualizes good access to this booth that promises to be the most spacious of the compact

Fiat's Project X6H for Brazil spied and interiors revealed. Hope like VW Fiat need to align the India market with Brazil for cost effectiveness. But with FIAT globally not doing well, India is not likely to be on priority.
If not Tipo/ Egea ,Fiat should consider the Project X6H/X6S as replacement to the Punto/Linea for India.

Interiors of the X6H has various elements of Tipo, Toro and the Uno.Link

Quote:
Left and right images: lateral commands are identical. This is the UConnect 2 central, inherited from the European Tipo, as shown in the image on the right.
Has 7-inch touch screen and design, mobile phones via Apple or Android CarPlay Auto

To the left of the steering column appears one of the palettes, responsible for managing the headlamps (without option to self-ignition in this configuration).

Raising our eyes to the right, the Multimedia Center is the second generation UConnect touch screen of 7 inches. By the way Fiat finally surrender to the era of car phone integrated, since the system offers the services of Apple and Android CarPlay Self projection.

In the lower right corner, almost hidden in the image, is a button with the letter "a", confirming the presence of start-stop system, which automatically switches off the motor in brief stops to save fuel.
The photographs display more details the entertainment center--a function named "App Manager" indicates the presence of integrated applications, the row of keys with start-stop, turn signals and the locking power Windows and air conditioning manual selectors (in top versions, the system will be automatic and digital), similar to those of the one, but with graphics and superior lighting
