Fiat Punto Hatchback 1.2 16V Active Sport 3d (2003/53)

Fiat Punto Hatchback 1.2 16V Active Sport 3d (2003/53) - Owner Review

The steering is quite responsive, however I feel the car has a rather large height and therefore quite a bit of bodyroll can be felt.

Fiat Punto Hatchback (03-06)

Value

3 out of 5

I guess many little hatchbacks are around the £9k mark and so I would say it is average, though i do think the external image of this car is much better than most rivals.

Costs

3 out of 5

Despite being a city runner, the fuel consumption could be said as just average, I have to refill it quite regularly or maybe it's just my driving style, though from the computer I usually only get around 35mpg.

Performance

3 out of 5

Guess I shouldn't ask too much from a 1.2, but nevertheless I would like to have more punch from the engine, especially when at higher gears. I really feel that this car doesn't really perform until its at roughly 3500rpm.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Nothing bad has happened yet, touch wood.

Image

4 out of 5

With the extra body kit fitted, I feel this car does look the part, for a £9k price tag I feel this car has a much better image than, say a Clio or a 206.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Having the active sport version, I get sport bucket seats and this is a real nice feature. I think these seats do hug me in a lot, compared to the standard ones on lower models.
