FIAT has launched a new entry-level hatchback- Punto EVO Pure, priced at Rs 4.92 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Fiat Punto EVO Pure replaces the Fiat Punto Pure in the company line-up. The Punto EVO Pure promises excellent build quality and on-road dynamics. Powering the Punto EVO Pure will be a 1.2-litre FIRE petrol engine churning out 68 PS of power at 6,000rpm and Maximum torque of 96 Nm at just 2500rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. There are six colour options – Exotica Red, Bossonova White, Hip Hop Black, Minimal Grey, Bronzo Tan and Magnesio Grey.
Announcing the market roll out, Kevin Flynn, President and Managing Director, FCA India Pvt. Ltd. Said, “With the Punto EVO Pure, our entry-level offering in the Fiat portfolio becomes stronger. Customers have always appreciated Fiat’s design, styling and on-road dynamics and now with the Punto EVO Pure they can own a great looking hatchback at exceptional value.”
The Punto remains one of the few cars today that still comes with a hydraulic power steering that help improve the steering feedback. The company says that inspite of good road dynamics, the ride quality is not compromised. In fact, the suspension is said to be tuned to take on the bumpy Indian roads. For the peace of mind, the FIAT Punto EVO Pure will come with a 3-year warranty and long service intervals of 15000km.
