Fiat Palio 2012 Pictures Leaked– Launch Expected Soon


Fiat Palio, one of the very first hatchbacks in India, has not been in news for quite some time now as there was no evidence of any new Palio under production. But the latest pictures of the 2012 Fiat Palio are out and has been spied in Brazil. It’s a great news for all the small car lovers across the planet as well as in India since the new model is expected to be introduced in the market soon. As per speculations the car will reach the Brazilian market in October or latest by November and an Indian launch could also be seen in the coming year, though the officials are denying the possibility of a new hatchback,

Now leaving all the expectations behind, let us talk about the car itself. The best part about the pictures is that they were completely undisguised which lets us admire the looks of the car.

The car is quite refreshing in terms of looks and by what we see, it looks like a new design for the Palio. The elegant curves of the body distinguish it from the existing product line-up. The first impression of the car is that it resembles the Fiat Grande Punto and I believe it would be true as Fiat has not come up with any new design language recently. Under the chrome grille, in the front bumper it has a honeycomb mesh air vent. From the headlights to the fog lamps, all has been surrounded by black to give it a sporty feel. As a part of the detailing on the car, black cladding has been adopted below the fog lamps on the end of the bumper.

From the sides again a couple of details are available like a nice black sticker on the door and half black painted ORVMs along with black lining around the windows. Also at the place of side skirting the car has been offered with a black cladding. Near the sticker, ahead of the front door a black & chrome insert has also been provided to add sportiness to the car.

The rear of the car is not very appealing and has been kept simple in terms of design. The black cladding has been carried over the lower end of the rear bumper as well. The spoiler is black and the rear fender has has a major portion in the middle which is again black.The headlamps look like a falling drop and add some more character to the car but they do not amaze you.

Coming to the technical aspect the car will be offered in its top end Sporting avatar in Brazil which comes equipped with a 1.6 Liter, 4 Cylinder 16 Valve MPFI petrol engine. But for the Indian market we can expect a 1.3 Liter Multijet engine or the new 1.0 Litre Twin Air unit.

  1. I don’t think the Indian “Palio-Fans” are this much fortunate to possess this beauty….. a “blind-FIAT/Palio-lover is talking to you.

  2. If this Palio is provided with 1.4-Tjet, that will be an ever-lasting gift to Palio to rule the Indian-roads till the Petrol lasts underground.

  3. I have been using 1.9 D Palio Diesel sine 2003 March when it was first introduced. But today I am the only owner roming lonely the streets of Calcutta wihout the sight of any second Palio Diesel at 13 to 14 km/lit and without any spare parts available.I had to wait 6 months to change a fan belt but without any original one. Luckily I got the spare parts from the second hand car dealers in Mallick Bazar as the parts are no more in production. TATAs sweetly reply that `we will inform you as soon as they are available`. But thanks to the solid engine as I diligently serviced it with proper engine oils and others that I can start climb a flyover and reach 80kmph at fifth gear without any hiccup and can drive at 130 kmph without any jerks. It will last many years and can stay on roads if the company ensures a proper supply of spare parts. So I had to keep a Maruti Esteem to tide over the crises when my Palio visits the hospital as an inpatient for just ` a change of the seat adjuster knob`which can be done within a minute but will take 7 days when an original one is available.
    I hope the next gen Palios will be bit fortunate to have a regular supply of spares.
