Pricewatch: Ford Fiesta 1.4 Style 5dr vs. Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 Dynamic 5dr

We’ve put Fiat’s new Grande Punto up against the hugely popular – and recently revamped – Ford Fiesta to see if it has what it takes to be the number one supermini.

It certainly has attributes that can take it to the top – Fiat’s expertise in small cars, good looks, very competitive pricing and a generous specification. In fact, the amount of kit Fiat has piled on it far outstrips the more expensive Fiesta.

And its projected residual values are good, too – over three years/ 60,000 miles the Grande Punto returns a healthy 35% of value new.

Ford Fiesta: Price new £9,752

Mileage Age (months) Predicted value Money lost
20,000 12 £5,275/54% £4,477
30,000 18 £4,625/47% £5,127
40,000 24 £4,050/42% £5,702
50,000 30 £3,550/36% £6,202
60,000 36 £3,125/32% £6,627
