Replacing the Punto EVO globally, it will undoubtedly be the most anticipated product from the Italian brand in recent years.

Ever since the first alleged test mule was spotted in December 2015, Fiat has been tight-lipped about the successor to the ageing Punto, which is being developed by its Brazilian counterpart. The automaker only hinted that the legendary Punto moniker will not be revived, thus suggesting a different name for the upcoming model. The interiors of the yet-to-be-named successor, codenamed X6H, were spied recently. According to the Brazilian media, Fiat will launch the car around May this year in Brazil, replacing the Punto and the second-gen Palio there.

If one takes a closer look at the leaked images, the dashboard appears to be inspired by the Fiat Tipo, which is on sale in Europe. The things that seem to be inspired the most are the steering wheel, twin-pod instrument cluster and the free-floating infotainment system. The steering wheel is a big, chunky unit with a plethora of buttons. The Jeep Renegade also uses the same unit.

The infotainment system we are talking about is likely to be Fiat’s seven-inch Uconnect unit, which supports both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto. This will help it compete well in India since its rivals such as the Maruti Suzuki Baleno (which already offers Apple CarPlay), the Hyundai Elite i20 and the Honda Jazz will begin offering smartphone integration tech soon.
