Default Facelifted Fiat Siena

The new Fiat Siena has broken cover completely undisguised ahead of its official launch in November, and its arrival on the Argentinean and Brazilian markets a month later. Clear images of the car have been published by Brazilian magazine Auto Esporte, which arrives on the newsstands on Monday.

Car has taken headlight cues from the VW Passat and the tail lamp cluster looks off an Alfa Romeo.

Nice lines otherwise.

Yep, even the back resembles the VW Passat!

Looks nice though! May not come in India since Fiat India is fully occupied with Punto & Linea!

Nice car though the design is amalgamation of its siblings. Very Striking though the same cannot be said about the flowing lines.

Everyone seems to be liking it which means I am the odd one out.

I don't like it. The grille is exactly like the Linea, headlights are like Passat and the rear is totally messed up. The backside looks like the Cedia's, like it's from a totally different car altogether! While the Linea grille looks good on the Linea it's totally out of place on the much smaller Siena.

For once, I hope, Fiat is lethargic enough NOT to bring it here!

i wasnt impressed with the 'zenish' palio 2008 and am not impressed with this sienna either. the headlights along with the new 'corporate' grill are just awful and in no way gives it a 'must have' look. though they have played well with the rear lights, but the overall body design just doesn't live up ... hope fiat stick to Grande and Linea for India

, there was nothing that would make me give it a second look or say wow. the only good improvement made to the linia is the boot.
