The new Fiat Punto is set to make its refurbished appearance in the supermini segment this month with plenty of new interior features and engines.
There are three trim levels available with the new Punto, trims which are growing increasingly popular amongst other Fiat models like the 500 and Panda.
The entry level trim is called the Pop and it offers standard features like MP3 compatibility, a height adjustable driver’s seat and electric power steering. Prices for the Pop trim start from £9,900.
The mid range trim is called the Easy and it offers a leather steering wheel, 15″ alloy wheels and air conditioning. However there is also a GBT level of specification for the Easy trim and this offers sporty features like a rear spoiler, side skirts and cruise control. Prices for the Easy trim start from £13,400.
At the top of the range is the Lounge trim and it offers climate control, cruise control, leather steering wheel and an electric sunroof. Prices for the Lounge trim range from £12,900 to £15,600.
In terms of engines the new Punto range offers two new engines: 85hp MultiJet diesel and an 85hp TwinAir. In total the Punto range offers a 1.2-litre petrol (69hp), 1.4 petrol (77hp), 1.4-litre MultiAir petrol (105hp and 135hp), 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol (85hp) and a 1.3 MultiJet diesel (75hp and 85hp). However, TwinAir variants are only available from April.
Fiat hopes that the new Punto will broaden its market appeal by building on the reputation of the likes of the Fiat 500, and offering a supermini derivative.
Fiat vehicles are available from Perry’s Portsmouth, Amersham and Aylesbury dealerships.
