Grande Punto wins design award from “Auto Car “magazine
Fiat Auto's new Grande Punto has received "Auto Car " magazine's coveted Design Award 2006, in UK which was presented to Frank Stephension, head of Fiat and Lancia Stile, at a ceremony in Brooklands.
In its award citation, Auto Car comments: “Grande Punto was an instant hit. Building on the Panda's progress, it brought one of the fastest turnarounds on record to Fiat Auto and more than anything, it was the Grande Punto's design that made the difference. Chuck in some funky interiors , decent quality , the usual excellent packaging and keen prices and you have the desired blockbuster."
Fiat Grande Punto was launched in Sri Lanka by Euro Motors in March 2007, at the Fiat's grand re launch in March 2007. Currently, the Fiat Grande Punto two door sports version and four door versions (with petrol engines) are available at the Euro Motors showroom in Colombo.
