Fiat India considering a new Abarth series car introducing in Indian soil. After the successful launch of Fiat Abarth 595 Competizione, they all set to officially launch Fiat Abarth Punto hatchback next month October in Indian Market. The Abarth Punto would be manufactured at the company’s Rajangaon factory. While it is expected price less than Rs.10Lakh. The company also wants to add that the Fiat high-performance Abarth badged Avventura crossover in India next year.
The Fiat’s Abarth series cars always look sportier and more aggressive, the new Abarth Punto gets the same. The hatchback gets several changes over regular punto model the Scorpion shaped alloy wheels, badges and body decals apart some cosmetic updated it has some mechanical changes like stiffer suspension, lower ride height, and disc brakes at all four wheels. On the inside, the car features an all-black color theme that gets real contrast stitching on the upholstery, the car also gets sporty pedals.
Under the hood, the Fiat Abarth Punto engine powering this performance-oriented version of the hatchback will be a 1.4-liter T-Jet Multi-Air 4-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 143bhp and 200Nm. the car is capable to get a top speed of 195km per hour. While the engine is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission.
The lower version Fiat punto Evo is no doubt a great car with some excellent built quality, style, safety and look, but the only drawback of that car is lack of power. The new Fiat Abarth Punto is a smart car with lots of powerful engines as high as that of the Punto Evo. The Punto Abarth version with increased power will help it in competition the higher-powered versions cars.
Most likely, the Fiat will launch Abarth Punto in October 2015. There are good chances that the price of the Punto Abarth will be around Rs.10 Lakh (ex-showroom). The new Land Rover Evoque is 18% more fuel-efficient than the Evoque previous diesel engine model. the diesel variant is coupled with a 6-speed manual, 4-wheel drive form and in Si4 2.0 liter petrol engine will be supported with 4-wheel derive and 9-speed automatic transmission as standard.
At last, I would like to say that, the latest Abarth Punto from Fiat is a great car with excellent build quality, great engine power, safety, stability, and a smart car. I think it creates some enthusiasm for young costumers.
