Default New 2012 Fiat Palio?

How close will the actual Fiat Palio be to these renderings? Two separate websites (both Brazilian?) have two different ideas for the new Palio.

The front looks like a Grande Punto was modified to look like a Peugeot!

Rear looks good. Front, not so, at least in the first rendering. I heard the new Palio will be based on modified Punto's platform.

lovely looking concept. great colour too.
sadly the production version will be a highly watered down one, going by past experience of loss in translation from concept to execution.
and all these concepts are showcased with some super looking big size alloys and fat tyres and all that - but when they come to production, all the "el cheapo" tricks of the manufacturers come to the fore.

the first looks slightly concept and the part after the bonnet looks more indica vista to me.
the second and the third snaps look more realistic and also look nice, a tad bit.

No offense, but these are just photoshop versions of the Punto. Why don't these people let the designers do their job? All of them cannot be Giorgetto Giugiaro.

I still feel the earlier version of Palio (before Stile) was overall better looking, the Stile scored on front, but lost badly on rear.

This one has stunning looks! The rear looks better than front

Back looks almost like a small sized Bravo to me. But over all the looks of the car are good.

Yeah rear looks better than front, I think fiat is working on small car for India to be launched next year and some upgrade of Palio's interior.

the fiat sedici looks far more appealing.. would be nice to have a more sturdy model like this introduced instead of palio which by the size and looks (and engine) cannot be differentiated from Punto..

it won't be here because the super ugly SX4 (my personal opinion) is already here.

anyways, the 2nd rendering is SUPER AWESOME.
