    I felt that it had that tear drop feel in the headlights... the car was looking little aggressive from the front though. The italian babe feel will always be there with punto...

    Just had a chat with a sales person of CAI dealership who has camped in our office (SEZ -Coimbatore).He said the below things which they got information from FIAT.

    1) New Punto will be released only by next year (Jan most probably) !
    2) Avventura will be officially introduced on July 21 to the customers (what special about July 21 :confused1).It is getting production ready.
    3) Since facelift Linea was just introduced ,FIAT wants to introduce a new product (Avventura) rather than introducing another facelift (Punto).

    Hmm ,he seemed to be confident in his words but I am terrifically surprised because these things are nowhere heard or read.

    If this is true, many people like me waiting for the new punto would have to look elsewhere! :mad:

    But hey, that Punto doing rounds in Italy seems a bit, i don't know how to describe! The Euro Punto's B pillars are not curved like the one's in India and the hatch door doesn't have key hole in it, instead the boot opens up via a press on the Fiat logo. This is different than the euro spec. Though I know i am over thinking, but seems strange as to why would they remove this feature in Italy. Plus the sharp B-pillar panels look better than the curved ones of here! Also the test model sits higher.

    And one detail don't seem good. Unlike the current version the water-jets (hidden in the plastic panel above the bonnet), here are situated on the bonnet exposed. Spoils the smoothness of the bonnet! :( Not a big deal though.

    Actually launching the avventura before punto will help it perform better in the market..because that will help people accept it as a different product particularly with the new front end.that would be quite contrary to what other manufacturers have been doing with their crossovers.
    but considering that fiat has been promoting punto aggressively these days,things might be the other way around.they must be trying to clear stocks before introducing the facelift. also, avventura's testing has only just started.

    i have also noted that.
    the original avventura concept was was based on the euro spec model's bodyshell. it had similar door panels.

    thats a nice catch.it reveals the facelift model's lines more clearly..and it certainly looks nice.
    now that the punto facelift seems to be going international, i wonder whether there would be an international abarth punto based on this one, or whether it would be an india specific kitted up version.

    +1 to your point if Fiat is considering launching the Avventura first. And did you notice that model doing the test rounds in Italy is a RHD.
