Fiat Group Automobiles UK has revealed the pricing details for the 2012 Fiat Punto. It is set to go on sale this month in the UK. It has a starting price of only £9,990 OTR for the Pop 1.2 8-valve while it could cost as high as £15,600 OTR for the highly specified Lounge 1.3 MultiJet version, which features automatic dual zone climate control, leather steering wheel, front fog lamps, seven airbags, cruise control, ambient interior lighting and electric sunroof as standard equipment. The new Punto is initially available with a choice of six low emissions Euro 5 engines and a TwinAir version coming in April.
These all come with Start&Stop as standard. The new Punto is available in a more simplified line-up of three main levels, similar to the Fiat 500 and the upcoming new Panda – Pop (base), Easy (mid) and Lounge (high).
In addition, Fiat will offer a sports version based on the Easy level grade dubbed GBT, which will be at the forefront of the advertising campaign that’s brewing within the sports association between Fiat UK and British Cycling. The highlights for the new Punto include the inclusion of two new engines: the 85hp version of the MultiJet diesel engine and the highly praised Engine of the Year 85hp TwinAir.
The complete list includes the 1.2 8-valve petrol (69hp), 1.4 8-valve petrol (77hp), 1.4 16-valve MultiAir petrol (105hp and 135hp), TwinAir 0.9-litre petrol (85hp) and 1.3 16-valve MultiJet diesel (75hp and 85hp). The Punto range comes with external styling modifications that use fully color coded front and rear bumpers for a more stylish appearance.
Meanwhile, there are three new exterior colors presented. These are Brit Pop Blue, Tango Red and Underground Grey. For the interior, we get new sportier seat fabrics and updated dashboard inserts as well as a revised specification to offer a more defined span of choice for customers and a more focused options set.
