Angry Re: Fiat begins testing the next-generation Punto. EDIT: Named Argo

Now I understood why that FIAT logo is so big in the rear hatch. It should shout, "Hello World! I am a Fiat, yes I am really a FIAT"

Exactly! It looks more like a KIA than a FIAT! I also see a bit of Alfa Giulietta in the taillights though, which is welcome. But the rest of it just feels like the Punto has got all it's soul sucked out.

Default Re: Fiat begins testing the next-generation Punto. EDIT: Named Argo

They went with a generic look, instead of the traditional Punto look; maybe that justifies the change of name to Argo. What a shame, will miss the pillar mounted taillights that the Punto has had for generations.

It is such an irony, that on one hand we have 'Team BHP - One of the Most Respected Auto-enthusiasts Forum' where I am quite sure that some 'Decision Maker' from the automobile industry is always keeping a watch...and on the other had we have FIAT India sleeping over their pre-historic products

I agree to the fact that the Argo really looks like the love-child of Elite I20 & TATA Tiago, but surely this will be a much needed fresh launch from FIAT. I particularly like that 'Floating HU' sort of setup on the dash, and for once, will prove that FIAT is not only about engine, mechanicals, once was, has been, and so on.

Get this to India with just 2 engines - 1.4 T-Jet and 1.6 MJD (may be 1.5 MJD).

WAKEY WAKEY FIAT INDIA.....BEFORE ITS BYE BYE

Really melodious chirp by the Birdies
If they do showcase in auto expo should work well to put back some public confidence in the brand. Video looks amazing - I wonder how many of those features will find their way here, if and when the car does launch.
