Fiat 500- 5 door replaces Fiat Punto, protest?

They're not scrapping the punto, they are just opening up a market niche with the 500L. Can you really see the 500L being fitted with the 1.4 multiair turbo?

The biggest mistake Fiat / Alfa Romeo made was dropping the Brera, the 159 and the Spyder.... What beautiful cars they were

You could say the same of me... -- but it doesn't stop Mrs homeward from still loving me...!

Point being -- I suppose -- that some cars are about aesthetics, as well as performance (or any other consideration/characteristic you care to pick...) -- these things all being terribly subjective, in the end... (which is what this thread is about, really...).
