Fiat Palio Stile 1.1

    With the 1

    Published on Dec 11, 2009 08:00:00 AM


    Make : Fiat
    Model : Palio Stile

    The face-lifted Palio gets bigger and bolder double-barrel headlamps, new honeycomb grille, new bumpers, slightly reshaped bonnet, tailgate and tail-lamps and they only serve to improve the already-handsome proportions of the Palio.

    This car casts the same silhouette as the outgoing car, but is slightly longer thanks to the new bumpers. However, it is still below the 4-metre cut-off length to help it qualify for the small car  excise sop. The biggest difference in the Palio Stile is its change of heart. To qualify for the excise sop, the petrol small car has to have an engine that displaces less than 1.2 litres. So the old 1242cc engine has been done away with and in its place debuts the 1108cc engine borrowed from the Fiat Panda 1.1 sold in the UK.
