Why is the lurid-red an aesthetic problem? IMO what matters aesthetically is not that one element (here, the fog lamp bezel) is red black or blue but how it is composed size and colour-contrast-wise with the rest of the front bumper+grill's composition. Here that the grill is all black, without even a border of say chrome or gunmetal, and that the body colours are black as well as white: the red fog lamp thing while lurid in themselves fit right in! and nicely, emphatically differentiate the Abarth Punto from the regular Evo. We don't want cannibalization now, do we: people tend to cross shop based on price, after all, sigh/argh etc! Besides, it is not merely for effect, euro hot hatches in general and Abarth-s in particular ALWAYS come 'liveried'/'dressed to sting' etc! i.e., this slight luridity (red is the colour of Indo-Italian passion! ;-)) is part of the Abarth authenticity. Why do so many people scoff at bright colours on cars, regarding them as un-manly somehow or immature? AFAI am concerned, the absence of other even more 'lurid' colours is a disappointment albeit understandable: parrot green and Palio yellow with red/black decals why not? "Let's add some exceptional colour to our white and grey-car-ridden roads, even as we ensure the vehicle has the go, the 'driving-feel' aesthetics to match or indeed exceed the exceptional visual aesthetics/accents." FIAT India seems to've said, and done! PS: thank you @nkrishnap for the review, pointed and terse while still failing to rein-in/mask your evident-excitement!? ;-) This car may sell as fair few, which is to say a hundred a month, in our market, unless what is being said about the 'Yamaha moment' in our market has arrived, which is doubtful imo, esp outside of Bangalore, Pune and Chennai. Let's hope it sells even more than that steadily: the brand and more importantly the dealers will benefit nicely.
