2012 Fiat Punto Van makes its debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show

Article by Christian A., on April 24, 2012

Making its debut in the UK at the Commercial Vehicle Show on April 24 in Birmingham’s NEC is Fiat Professional’s New Punto Van 2012. The New Punto Van is the replacement for the Grande Punto Van in the Fiat Professional line-up. The new model is targeted at customers in the car-derived van market, with a load capacity of 1.0 m3 and a 520-kg payload.

The new Punto Van 2012 appears more sophisticated due to its external styling revisions with fully color-coded front and rear bumpers. The new model features the style of both the Grande Punto and Punto Evo passenger cars, which is why the interior features have new sportier seat fabrics and why the SX version has a new dashboard with soft touch materials and an elegant design.

Offered as standard equipment on all versions are ESP (Electronic Stability Programme), BAS (Brake Assistance System), remote central locking, electric front windows, electrically adjustable and heated body colored mirrors, trip computer, driver and passenger airbags, radio/CD/MP3 player, electric power steering, height and reach-adjustable steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. Just one diesel engine is offered for the new Punto Van – the highly acclaimed and very popular 1.3 MultiJet II diesel.

It is offered in three power levels. The first offers 75hp (55 kW) / 190 Nm max torque (at 1500 rpm) 67.2 MPG (4.2 l/100km) combined fuel consumption and 112 g/km CO2 emissions.

The second delivers 85hp (62 kW) / 200 Nm max torque (at 1500 rpm) with Start&Stop 80.7 MPG (3.5 l/100km) combined fuel consumption and 90 g/km CO2 emissions. And the third produces 95hp (70 kW) / 200 Nm max torque (at 1500 rpm) with Start&Stop 67.2 MPG (4.2 l/100km) combined fuel consumption and 110 g/km CO2 emissions.

Start&Stop comes as standard on the 1.3 MultiJet II 85hp and 95hp versions. The new range is available with the entry level 1.3 MultiJet II 75hp version that’s priced at £10,990.00 (exc. VAT and OTR), which means that it offers tremendous value but with all the safety and comfort features that could be expected such as ESP, airbags, electric windows and mirrors, and radio/CD/MP3 player. For just £500 more, the buyer could get the 1.3 MultiJet II 85hp version.

Its output is 10hp higher and it comes with Start&Stop, which makes it have a combined fuel consumption of 80.7 MPG and a CO2 emissions level of 90 g/km.
