Artist rendering of the next Fiat Stilo

The Fiat Stilo is now due a redesign. Launching back in 2000, the Stilo wasn't a hit with customers, especially in the UK. Poor packaging and reliability saw it lose out to rivals like the Ford Focus, Volkswagen Golf and Vauxhall/Opel Astra.

While this rendering may look like the current Grande Punto, reports suggest the G.Punto will influence the forthcoming Stilo, especially on exterior styling.

A coupe like roofline and raising waistline will give the newcomer a sleeker look, while the C-pillar based rear-lights blend seamlessly into the roof. The large panoramic glass sunroof will make the interior feel more roomy alongside the big windscreen.

Unlike the current Stilo, the muscular wheelarches and huge alloy wheels will give the car an athletic look. Up front, the small headlights, rectangular radiator grilles and small foglamps inserts echoe the Grande Punto's classy styling.

Look out for an introduction in 2007.
