    Fiat CEO Olivier François has confirmed in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblicathat Fiat will indeed be following a new strategy for the B- and C-segment in the future. The Fiat Panda and 500 will be the basis for the styling of future models, with the 500L being the first result. It then seems like we won’t be seeing any new ‘classic’ hatchback-models such as the current Punto and Bravo in the future…
    François mentioned that the new Fiats should be lucrative and need to fulfill a worldwide role, giving them a more promising position than their predecessors. The successor of the Punto will, so said the CEO, be a very recognizable car with a typical Italian character. The Frenchman claimed that Centro Stile is now determining whether to base the first model on the Panda or the 500. A second model will also be arriving in the same period (2014-2015) and should have a sportier exterior like the last-year-shown 500X (picture). This car will have the dimensions of a C-segment vehicle. Fiat will from now on be going their own distinctive way and have already shown that they are up for the task with the new 500L, so said François.

  3. It seems that rumors regarding the next generation Punto are right and the next punto would be a Panto ( Punto based on existing Panda). According to Autocar UK due to intense competition in Supermini sector there is radical rethinking in Fiat whether to produce new Punto on a new platform as it is seems uneconomical so easy way out for them is to build next gen. Punto basically reskin new Fiat panda.
