Standby for new Fiat Punto offers. Why? Because Easy, GBT, and TwinAir versions have
been reduced by £1,000 compared to their list prices - and now include the 'Biro' pack.
This adds the: Blue& Me infotainment system, rear parking sensors, cornering fog lights,
climate control, and cruise control to Easy and GBT trims. Very nice too. As TwinAir
models already have fancy fogs, these receive a leather steering wheel and gear lever
too. The extras are worth over £1,000. Also, 1.2-litre Pop trims have been reduced by
£1,400 from list prices.
Prior to discounts, Punto list prices ranged from £9,900 - £15,600.
“The B segment is a highly competitive market sector but we have a car that can take
on the best of our rivals,” said Elena Bernardelli Marketing Director for the Fiat Group
Automobiles UK Ltd. “We also have some strong offers in place to ensure that customers
take a close look at this latest Fiat Punto - and I’m confident they will like what they see.”
Standby for new Fiat Punto news. This supermini has been recently refreshed, so it
is available with new alloy wheels and swankier exterior colours. More importantly it
is very easy to drive, feels better screwed together than some old Italian cars, and
has a respectable 275-litre boot. Cargo capacity, in fact, can be increased to 1,030-
litres by folding the rear seats flat. This applies to both three and five-door versions.
Various engines are available, but the pick of the bunch is the 1.3-litre 85bhp diesel. This
averages a mighty 80.7mpg, and propels motorists to 62mph in 13.1 seconds. Great stuff.
