Cool Re: Grande Punto saloon

Interesting. Not because I'd want a saloon, but that they might do an estate version, you know, like a sportwagon, offering a bit more space for those of us who value practicality in a car. The market is small because only Pug 206 and Fabia do them, and it's not like they're the greatest small cars...

Re: Grande Punto saloon

Still got to laugh at the 'how not to be noticed - cover the car in black foam'

Yep that will make the car invisible...

A small saloon.. Interesting concept.

Re: Grande Punto saloon

its like a nova long-arse. remember them? probably not because they didnt sell very well at all.

fingers crossed this wont sell either, then it'll be gone before fiat's reputation is damaged too much.

i'm expecting a coupe people carrier next

Re: Grande Punto saloon

This GP saloon will most likely be for the cut price punto for the European market we will never see one in the uk. I went to turkey and every one was driving Renault Clio saloons I didnít see one hatch back.

Re: Grande Punto saloon

it's been made for the south american market and some of europe but not the UK.
Not exactly big sellers in the UK are they booted hatchbacks, or saloons in general.

Re: Grande Punto saloon

They have Corsa (or whatever they call them) saloons in Mexico and the US (Guessing). Possibly under the GM brand.

Re: Grande Punto saloon

That will probably be for sale in South Africa and South America. In those countrys cars like that are popular. For example, you can get Opel Corsa estates, saloons and pickup trucks in certain countrys in the world.
