Fiat lifted the curtain off the Fiat Punto Evo, a 2010 model year car spawned from the Grande Punto. More power, more efficiency, better design.

Behind this cute, yet bored looking "spokesmodel" is the Fiat Punto Evo, a reimagining of the Grande Punto.  The car features a start/stop system, and a "duel-fuel methane and petrol" option amongst their range of engines.  Amongst these engines are the second generation 1.3-liter Multijet diesel, and the MultiAir 1.4-liter petrol.

The Italian automaker says consumers will be greeted with up to 10% more power, and 15% more torque throughout the engine range.  Efficiency has also been improved by 10%, while emissions were reduced by the same amount.  The dual fuel model will have a maximum range of 1,500 kilometers, all the while expelling just 115 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

The 2010 Fiat Punto Evo gets new bumpers at the front and back, and a fully updated interior.  Amongst the new features is the Blue&Me unit from TomTom.  This infotainment systom incorporates a color screen, navigation, and a telephone.  Other upgrades include new seats, a new instrument cluster, and better designed storage spaces. 

Fiat will begin taking orders sometime next month.
