The Italian media is reporting that Fiat has made some major changes to the Punto range in its home market Italy. The compact hatchback won’t be available in 3-door version or with a diesel engine anymore. Euro 6 69-CV (68-hp) 1.2-litre petrol, 77-CV (76-hp) 1.4 EasyPower LPG and 70-CV (69-hp) 1.4 NaturalPower CNG remain the only powertrain choices now.
The updated range is available in three trim levels – Street, Young and Lounge. Prices remain unchanged though.
Standard features include tyre pressure sensors, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Hill holder, driver and passenger airbags and electric front windows. The Young trim adds body-coloured door handles, multi-function steering wheel and an infotainment system with 5-inch screen featuring navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, USB connection. The range-topping Lounge trim adds front fog lights with cornering function, 15-inch alloy wheels, front rear electric windows and split seats at the rear.
