Fiat has unveiled the replacement for the Fiat Punto Evo – its facelifited Punto model that’s offered in three and five door guises. It also comes in five trim levels such as Pop, Easy, GBT, TwinAir and Lounge. The model range offers daytime running lights and air-conditioning as standard. The top-of-the-line Lounge version features sports seats, a front arm rest, climate control, cruise control and front fog lights.
It also gets Fiat’s Skydome electric sun roof and electric rear windows. The GBT models are new to the Punto lineup. They are designed to play up the company’s connection to the British Cycling team like the 15-inch Sportline alloys, lowered sports suspension, tinted glass and a boot spoiler as well as side skirts.
The Punto line-up has five petrol engines: the 0.9-litre TwinAir turbo, 1.2-litre, 1.4-litre, 1.4-litre MultiAir and 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo. It also has the two 1.3-litre MultiJet diesels in either 74bhp or 84bhp versions. The two are partnered with a five-speed manual gearbox. Fiat said that the more powerful diesel could return 80.7 mpg and have CO2 emissions of only 90g/km.
The fastest version is the 134bhp 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo with a top speed of 124mph. The entry-level 1.2-litre Pop has a starting price of £9990 while at the top, the 1.3-litre MultiJet Lounge diesels are priced at £15,600.
