Fiat Grande Punto
Fiat Grande Punto
Translated literally, the name means "big dot" but Americans would find this car to be rather on the small side. it's about the size of a Honda Fit or Chevrolet Aveo

It's available as a small hatchback car, a body style that's popular in Europe, but not as popular in the U.S. Chrysler does have a slot in its product line for a small hatchback car, though, something smaller than the the Dodge Caliber.

The Grande Punto isn't really Fiat's best, but it's better than what Chrysler currently offers small car buyers, said Matt Stone, executive editor of Motor Trend.

"It would be an obvious quick-and-dirty choice," he said.

Add a trunk, something car companies frequently do to sell a car in the hatch-phobic American market, and the Grande Punto also fill in as a compact sedan. That's something Chrysler hopes to have in late 2011.
