Fiat Punto Hatchback 1.4 Sporting 3d (2004/04) - Owner Review

Light handling, and sticks to road wellbut don't be fooled by Sporting badge - only 95bhp engine but speedy enough.

Fiat Punto Hatchback (03-06)

Value

4 out of 5

£8k brand new from Motorpoint (£11.5k list price) - makes up a little for heavy depreciation on Puntos.

Costs

3 out of 5

Too early to say with servicing/parts. Petrol get 40mpg (less than 42mpg quoted).

Driving

3 out of 5

Light handling, and sticks to road wellbut don't be fooled by Sporting badge - only 95bhp engine but speedy enough.

Performance

3 out of 5

Engine loud at speed.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Fine so far - except faulty 'Hill Holder' failure signal that flashes up every few minutes (despite attempts by dealer to fix).

Image

4 out of 5

Smart looking car (although a bit boy racer-ish). Several admiring glances.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Good seats with lumbar adjustment, plenty of legroom and headroom for tall people like me. Not much legroom for back seat passengers though.
