Fiat Teases The New Punto Abarth

Fiat India is teasing the reveal of its most anticipated hot-hatch of the year, Fiat Abarth Punto by showcasing the car in its official dual-tone color scheme on their website. The car can be seen in its black and red color scheme smacked in middle of the opening page of the website. The page also features an inactive  “coming soon” button. Possibility dictates that as the launch date draws closer, the link will eventually become active.

The hot-hatch will come with a 5-speed manual transmission, which will be mated to a 1.4 liter T-Jet motor that has been tweaked to belt-out 145 horses and 195Nm of torque. This power-plant will help propel the car from 0-100 in under 10 seconds. The height of the car has been reduced by 20mm and this results in the overall Kerb-weight of around 1100kg. The over all power-to-weight ratio will also improve for the Abarth Punto and so will the aerodynamics.

The car will tread on 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, which will be wrapped in 195/55 R16 tires. The grill will feature contrasting colors and Abarth decals on the bottom side profile. The car also flaunts a spoiler at the rear that enhances the sporty appeal when coupled with the Abarth insignias and badging.

The interiors will feature the similar Punto EVO styling with exception to the black interior color scheme that come with sporty yellow and red stitching. A sportier instrumentation cluster and aluminum racing foot pedals are also expected to make an appearance.
