Fiat Punto EVO Pure, is the newest addition from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in the Punto family. Launched at ₹ 4.92 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) the car replaces the Fiat Punto Pure which was launched last year at the 2016 Auto Expo. It is currently the most affordable offering from the Italian carmaker in India and it will be available only in one variant and comes in only one engine option - 1.2-litre petrol. This has helped Fiat to cut down the price and make it its entry level offering in the country.
Announcing the launch of the new Punto Evo Pure, Kevin Flynn, President and Managing Director, FCA India said, "With the Punto EVO Pure, our entry-level offering in the Fiat portfolio becomes stronger. Customers have always appreciated Fiat's design, styling and on-road dynamics and now with the Punto EVO Pure they can own a great looking hatchback at exceptional value."
