I saw that in ::ITALIASPEED::. Those 3 asymmetric air inlets on the left hand side of the logo seem very weird.

Well, assume it costs 4 lakhs, has a diesel engine, and runs 20 kmpl: then no Indian will mind the looks!

Everyone should close their eyes and think about the UNO for a moment. This automatically will look awesome..

Early FIAT UNO is a timeless classic, I loved the boxy look & used to ogle at it when it was launched in india..

Still a tough job for FIAT. The Grande Punto with its superb looks and nice overall package hasn't taken off as much as they have expected.

+ 1.

The front + huge wheel wells look totally out of place! Not the usual design flair that FIAT cars have!

Still.This looks too basic.Indians won't take a fancy to this one,with its Lego like toy-ish design elements.The shape isn't bad,but if Fiat were to get this to India,they'd have to make it look a bit more upmarket.A conventional grille,and some chrome would do the trick.

P.S. The red one seems to have a sportier front bumper!

Bleh!

This contraption looks worse than *any* car on Indian roads.

looks like FIAT has employed a Korean/Japanese designer
First they ruined the Punto and now this.

Don't tell me Fiat are going back to their oddball designs(Multipla and the like) after having resurrected themselves so well.
