2023 will be a very important year for Fiat: the Italian brand will expand its range, with the return to segment B, an important step for the Italian car manufacturer which has always been able to achieve good results in that slice of the market by placing several interesting models. Such as the Fiat Punto, with the heir of this car that will be re-proposed on the market in less than two years under the aegis of Stellantis. The group born from the merger between FCA and PSA has confirmed the return of a model that will take the place left empty by the Punto even if at the moment very little is known about the technical specifications and style that a car that will have to find its size will have. in an increasingly crowded market.
What is certain is that the model will have electrified engines, in line with the transition towards sustainable mobility which is an integral part of the development plans of the Stellantis group. The Fiat range it is destined to become fully electric by the end of the decade but it seems unlikely that the new Punto will be launched in the battery version only. Instead, it is possible that you opt for the hybrid, waiting to understand what the success of the model will be. Born on the new platforms of the group, the new Fiat-branded car will in fact have a wide choice also from the point of view of propulsion.
Another important novelty could instead concern the bodywork: according to the latest rumors, as happened for the new Tipo, Fiat Punto could also be launched in two versions, a hatchback and an SUV or crossover. A choice that, if confirmed, would allow us to intercept a wider clientele, offering a complete model from different points of view. At the moment, however, it is too early to have official confirmation on the heir of the Punto, with more information on the matter that will be available at the launch of the industrial plan of Fiat.
