I won't go so far as to call it horrible, definitely not pleasant to look at, unusual, quirky perhaps.

The design looks OK & digestible when compared to the ritz, wagon-r, estillo & xylo.

Our market is not worried about looks, pull in a VFM & FIAT could see sales going up. At present FIAT does not have a vehicle in the less than 3-3.5 lakhs territory..

Reminds me of Mater (from the movie 'Cars'), with two protruding teeth, instead, its three teeth in this one

Default 4-Door Fiat 500

Fiat has plans to launch 4-Door Fiat 500 in Europe & North America by end 2011. Please refer the below link:

4-Door Fiat 500 Coming to North America - MSN Autos

Appears good proposition for Fiat in India too.

Praying to god this design should not see day light! I am a born fan of FIAT but this disappointed me .

4 door 500 would be a good option for India if they price in the acceptable segment.

One word. Terrible!

God knows what they were thinking. Older Uno looks far more pleasing.

They should have a uniform grill and remove the jazz from the doors. Something like this.

And that should be the start for many more changes.

2011 Fiat Uno: First Official Photos of New Italian Supermini - Carscoop

first official pics-new fiat uno

These here are the first official photographs of the 2011 Fiat Uno, a new supermini that will sit between the Panda and the Grande Punto in the Italian automaker's vehicle range.
The car borrows its name from the predecessor of the Punto and Grande Punto superminis, the highly successful Uno that was introduced in 1983 as a replacement to the ageing Fiat 127. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the original Uno remained in production until 1995 having received a heavy facelift in 1989.
Its spiritual successor, which closely resembles a larger Panda in appearance, will be manufactured in Brazil.
It will be offered (initially) in two flavors, the standard five-door hatchback model and the crossover-ish Uno Way that boasts a higher road clearance and rugged looks.
There are no details on the engine range, but South American buyers shouldn't expect any surprises under the hood as Fiat will most likely use the same small displacement powertrains found on its other models.
Sources state that the new Uno will also make its way to Europe, Russia and other major international markets, but Fiat has yet to announce any specific details.

Default New Fiat Uno-official launch details, specs and pictures

Source: New Fiat Uno Part II: Photo Gallery and Details of Italian Supermini - Carscoop

Fiat has officially introduced the new generation of its Uno supermini in South America. The Italian automaker released a barrage of photos and initial specs on the spiritual successor of the original Uno that will first go on sale in Brazil this month, with other South American countries to follow suit in the second half of the year.
There have been reports from Italy stating that Fiat plans to sell and produce the new Uno in Europe and Russia, but this has yet to be confirmed from official sources.
Measuring 3,770mm in length, 1,643mm in width and 1,490mm in height with a wheelbase length of 2,370mm (boot capacity stands at 280 liters), the new Uno fits (dimension-wise) between the Panda and the Punto EVO.
In some ways, it's exterior styling bears a passing resemblance to the smaller Panda, albeit in a larger package and with its own unique detailing. The interior design is more simple and less stylish than in other Fiat products - at least compared to the ones sold in Europe.
In typical Fiat fashion, the new Uno will be come in plenty of flavors including a pseudo-SUV version called "Way" that features a higher road clearance and rugged looks.
Depending on the market, the new Uno will be offered with a choice of two new flex-fuel petrol engines, a 1.0-liter unit producing 73HP when running on alcohol and 75HP on gasoline, and a 1.4-liter unit delivering a maximum output of 88HP on alcohol and 85HP on gasoline.
Both engines are hooked up to a five-speed manual gearbox that drives the front wheels.

Why call it the Uno? Apart from the badge there doesn't seem to be any feature that's common with the Uno. It even has two wipers!
