Pricing for the Model Year 2012 Fiat Punto has just been announced by Fiat Group Automobiles UK.
And with a starting price of just £9,990 OTR for the Pop 1.2 8-valve, the new car goes on sale in the UK this month.
At the top end of the revised Punto range, the highly specified Lounge 1.3 MultiJet version, which costs £15,600 OTR, features automatic dual zone climate control, leather steering wheel, front fog lamps, seven airbags, cruise control, ambient interior lighting and electric sunroof as standard.
Available initially with a choice of six low emissions Euro 5 engines – and with a TwinAir version coming in April – all fitted with Start&Stop as standard, the new Punto comes in a more simplified line-up of three main levels, similar to the Fiat 500 and forthcoming new Panda – Pop (base), Easy (mid) and Lounge (high).
Added to these are a sports version based on the Easy level grade called GBT, which will lead the advertising campaign developing within the sports association between Fiat UK and British Cycling.
The big news for new Punto is the addition of two new engines – an 85hp version of the MultiJet diesel engine and the acclaimed Engine of the Year 85hp TwinAir. The full list will comprise: 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).
Standard equipment in the entry-level Pop model includes remote central locking, electric front windows, driver and passenger airbags, window airbags, radio/CD/MP3 player, electric power steering and height-adjustable driver seat.
“The Punto range has been – and still is – an important car in the Fiat line-up, and we’re delighted now to be able to reveal prices of this latest evolution,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK.
“Punto is up against some tough competition in its sector but we are confident that we are able to offer an attractive package at exceptional value-for-money prices to keep it a viable and desirable proposition.”
