Glad it exists but somehow the base models look cooler.
I think I may agree. I realise that manufacturers have to make visual differences to help differentiate different pricing levels within a range but it's looking slightly overdone to my eyes.
It's like a patische over egging of 80 hot hatchedness. Compared to the Ritmo/Strada 105TC, 125TC and 130TC Abarth and Uno Turbo ie. that's looking a whole lot less subtle. I really dislike shields on the flanks of Ferraris and the Abarth ones on the sides of cars may be a nod to their past but they don't do it for me. It's the default lazy marketing, shortest route between two dots, pillage the family heritage heirlooms? Or such lazy references to the past fit with the whole '500' retroness?
A two tone brown and white roll back roof one passed me going in the opposite direction a earlier in the year with the roof all the way back. Just too much going on on too little a car, just looked messy.
I love the car and the poke, just not the cartoon caricature hot hatchedness cues.
I don't know, it's like the orange, Z list tweeters that provide content for the Daily Mail website?
I'd be torn to cast an opinion on what I find the most appealing the utter, turbo nutterness of the Abarths or the 2 cylinder ones. I find the Twin Airs really interesting.
Thinking about it, someone at work has a Grande Punto Abarth, a pre Poirot tache facelift one. That looks far better to me, the wheels even remind me of the alloys that were on the Strada 105TC. It looks different from other Grande Puntos but doesn't ram it down your throat sideways.
