The Fiat Punto (Fiat Punto) was a much-loved hatchback car in India as well as international markets. This car had a very good performance in its segment and its design was also very cute and unique. Fiat decided to discontinue Punto in international markets in 2018. This car lasted a little longer in India. It was not discontinued recently when India stepped into the BS6 era. However, some reports have claimed that Fiat Punto could be revived.
In a report, Fiat Automobiles chief executive Olivier François said, "It's no secret. That project has been continuously postponed. It is now being worked on. But it's too early to talk about this model. But It will definitely be a B-sector (premium hatchback) car. " This is definitely big news. The Next Generation Punto will be more premium than the model that has been in place for so many years.
According to the report, the Next Generation Fiat Punto car may be a product of a merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), and Peugeot SA (PSA) Peugeot SA (PSA). The deal between FCA and PSA could be finalized in 2020. The Next Generation Punto can be based on PSA Group's CMP (Common Modular Platform), the smallest modular platform in the group's lineup. On this platform, the new-generation Peugeot 208 (Peugeot 208) and Opel Corsa (Opel Corsa) are built.
However, Fiat is yet to confirm the name of the new car. So it is possible that this car will be launched with a brand new name. However, if the company brings the new car with the same name to capitalize on the popularity of the name Punto, then it can get more benefits. There is little chance of Punto's return to India. However, this is also not entirely impossible as there is a strong basis for this.
Group PSA is going to launch the Citroen brand in India soon with C5 Aircross (C5 Aircross). The C5 Aircross in India is expected to be based on the CMP platform. The FCA has not completely stopped its operations in India as the Jeep (Jeep) brand sells well here. Therefore it can be assumed that Punto will return to India due to these favorable conditions. And even why not, it has been a favorite car for speed enthusiasts in India.
