New Grande Punto Estate!





Renders from www.infomotori.com - Look great! I didn't realise Fiat were doing an SW/Estate version, really they should get on the CC model, but from these mock-up's it looks great!

I don't know how else it would look! There's only so many ways you can turn a GP into an estate!

I don't think I have ever seen an estate that had a rear end identical to the hatchback version. Because they want a flatter loading bay.
Am prepared to be wrong on that tho!


Estates always have a different tailgate and rearlights. Atleast thats what I've noticed.

Re: New Grande Punto Estate!

Have to agree with the beast about a lower boot lip been needed especially when you end up at comet and try to slide a washingmachine in without wrecking the bumper

otherwise i think it looks realy smart

my old mans looking for a new estate to replace his Focus estate aka the dustcart is this actually in production or just another concept??

Skoda Felicia Estate has exactly the same tailgate as the hatch

Re: New Grande Punto Estate!

i have always felt that estate cars have one purpose and one purpose only, for peopl with kids. in my opinion and estate would ruin what is a lovely car. but that is just my personal opinion.
