Awesome car. Looks even more dazzling with all those mods. When it comes to design, Italians are in an entirely different league.

Wow, look at that texture on the dash! Awesome interiors. As for outside, I would much prefer the existing Indian one.

This would have been the inspiration for the recently launched new i10's grille.
The body appears to be similar to the existing punto.
Altogether it can be termed as a sex change; from masculine to feminine. Only my opinion.

I am sure there are many who would like this new look as they new understood the superb "Baby Maserati" design of the India Punto.

Interiors look very promising!

Quote:
The car is available with three engine choices that both comply with new Euro5 environmental standards. Petrol engines come in the form of a 1.2 liter 8v that produces 69 hp or a 1.4 liter 8v that provides 77 hp. A turbocharged diesel engine can also be fitted, a tiny 1.3 MultiJet 16v developing 75 hp. There are also two special version of the 1.4 liter, called the “Natural Power” and “EasyPower”, that can also run on methane or LPG, respectively.

Standard equipment on the Fiat Punto MyLife includes 2 front airbags, ABS, EBD, ESP with Hill Holder system, plus the infotainment system with CD-MP3 radio and the popular TomTom navigation.

Styling changes have been made by means of Piano Black inserts on the front bumper, door handles and side mirrors. The MyLife also comes with darker headlights and tail lights. The interior has received some attention as well: it now has soft touch black perforated material covering the dash board. The seats have also received new black upholstery, done in typical Italian style. The carmaker has gone for a more high-end approach, in contrast with the futuristic design many of its competitors embody.

At first glance it looks like a wanna be Fiat 500 from the front. Anyways the exteriors of the current gen Punto look better. .

The Punto in India has the Maserati inspired front, however, this one looks more like a Fiat. So Fiat India, please bring it on, but with the T-jet engine.

I would have the present Indian Punto with interiors from Punto My Life; best of both worlds.

When this facelifted version is brought on here, the stock of unsold present style GPs can be sold on a premium by FIAT India unlike other makes where old version cars lying in stock are sold at a grand discount.
