Great car

FIAT PUNTO EVO 1.6 Multijet Sporting 3dr (Review date: 5th September '14)

5

I have bought a few Punto's over the years starting of with the Mk1, but this reincarnation of the Fiat Punto is the best car I have purchased. I have looked at the Ford Fiesta & test driven the Zetec S model & Titanium model. The Zetec S is a poor car and is no comparison to the Sporting, it is also gutless and in my opinion uncomfortable...sorry but I totally disagree with all that is said about the Fiesta, I genuinely looked at changing it for the Ford but glad I didn't, it appears Fiat cars in general get a bad press but they offer by far better refinement and styling.

Most reliable and economical ever

FIAT PUNTO EVO 1.3 Multijet Active 5dr (Review date: 9th May '14)

5

We have owned the Punto from new. We use use it for daily short journeys, for medium journeys and long hauls to Scotland, to Italy and to Austria. In all circumstances it is economical and returns an average of 65 MPG, better on long hauls.It is surprisingly spacious for a small car and, on one journey to Austria it held the two of us, four accordions, a trombone and other paraphernalia.

It is an easy car to drive and to park. We use it in the Alps where it copes with the steepest hills and nasty curves with no problems

Our car did not come with a spare wheel and so we bought a proper spare, which we haven't needed but gives great peace of mind in the mountains.

The only problem we have had with the car was when the warning light for the particulate filter kept coming on when we drove short local trips.

Fiat Punto Evo Great Stylish Car

FIAT PUNTO EVO 1.4 Active 3dr (Review date: 1st April '14)

5

Had 2 Fiat puntos. The evo with a 1.4 engine is a lot nippier recommended. Felt the 1.2 underpowered and the acceleration was poor. The punto looks great on the outside and has a stylish and practical interior. The finish and styling are far superior to the Vauxhall nova and ford fiesta cars we looked at. The blue and me blue tooth system is easy to use and sounds great. Great town car easy to park ... good fuel economy.

Punto Evo Sporting - a pocket rocket

FIAT PUNTO EVO 1.4 Multiair 16V Sporting 3dr [135] (Review date: 18th March '12)

5

I've just upgraded from the entry level Punto Evo to the Sporting and haven't looked back since!

To most people, I guess they wont see the difference visually, but the lower body and sporty 17" graphite grey alloys, along with the rear spoiler and chrome exhaust definitely set it apart for me.

As someone who drives 50 miles a day, I was semi-anxious in regards to the claimed 50mpg. I've found that i'd need to drive like a saint to get anywhere near that, and have been managing an average of 40-41mpg most days (including some tasty turbo useage), which I'm very happy with considering the performance figures!

One big difference between the sporting and not just the entry level car, but pretty much every other car in the class, is the interior styling. Comfortable sport bucket seats, along with great detailed stitching throughout the cabin makes it a luxurious, yet sporty place to sit and makes me forget I'm in a Punto sometimes!

Obviously, the best thing as I'm sure everyone else thinks is the engine! With 135bhp and 152 lb/ft, keeping up with and overtaking traffic has never been so easy, and really sets this car apart.

As for downsides... i'm quite biased, and having had the entry level punto, I'm just grateful for this car! But I suppose i feel a little detached when changing gear at times, and on twisty backroads, it's not quite as clingy as i'd hope..., but I dont really give a hoot as I love the car!

It's more the surprise factor that I love this car for, as it isnt the hottest looking hatch, but isnt far off being one!

Overall, a beaut of a car, and I'd say, worth having over an Abarth :)

Owned the car from new, 18 months ago. Not a single problem in all this time. Very happy with the car. Everytime I get in the car, I just have to turn the key and off I go, knowing that it is in great condition and is reliable. All fucntions are easy to use.

Practical, looks great but lacks power

FIAT PUNTO EVO 1.4 Multiair 16V GP 3dr (Review date: 29th January '12)

4

The car is fantastic to look at, both inside and out. The model I have is equipped with all the extras which certainly gives it a more up market feel than the basic model - chrome mirrors, sideskirts, honeycomb grill - items which make it look like a different car to the basic model and extras I can only recommend having driven both.

It's a great car to live with, the drive is smooth and handles well. One criticism, despite it being one of the larger engine sized models, it does lack power, particularly in the higher gears, though it's a nice car to cruise along the motorway in with its sixth gear, which also saves some fuel.

The car is said to average 40-45 MPG, but I can only manage 35, though I do lots of short journeys and my driving style doesn't quite adhere to what FIAT imagined when they came up with those figures.

The car is comfortable, both as a driver and passenger and has a great seating position with good views all round.

The boot can be a little small, I have to put my driver (golf club) on the back seat as it doesn't fit in the foot unless I carefully angle it, which can take longer than I often have. Though the boot is deep and has plenty of room for shopping, it's just narrow.

The running costs are OK, tax is a little higher than I thought it would be, especially as it's quite economical and has 'Stop/Start' technology, which works well, but can result in some slow getaways at the lights.

Overall, I'm very happy with the car, and aside from the small niggling issues, which I can happily see past, I would recommend it.

Bring on the EVO

FIAT PUNTO EVO 1.4 GP 3dr (Review date: 31st October '11)

4.3

I was really surprised on the overall performance of the EVO. It's nippy and cuts around the London traffic really well. The start stop system takes a bit of getting used to but its a definet fuel saver. There's plenty of space for 5 people and the boot is of a good size. I haven't got anything bad to say about the EVO and i would recommend it to anyone even if its for a test drive.
