Used Fiat Punto Hatchback (1994 - 1999) Review

Review by Parkers on

The original Punto was a good all-rounder, equally at home in town or on the open road. Passenger and load space are more generous than most superminis of its age, with five-door cars quite suitable for the smaller family.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The original Punto was a good all-rounder, equally at home in town or on the open road. Passenger and load space are more generous than most superminis of its age, with five-door cars quite suitable for the smaller family. It also possesses distinctive styling to add to its desirability making cost effective motoring accessible to just about anyone who wants it.

Most units are very economical too. It's best known as a three or five-door hatchback, but there's also a nifty-looking cabriolet.

What owners say...

 Although it only has three doors, access to the back seats is very easy, and the boot is extremely large for the size of the car.

 Boot size, the amount of space inside the car is excellent too. Driving position is good and there is plenty of visibility.

 It is very spacious, comparable with a family sized car. Leg room in the front and back is exceptionally generous and the flat folding seats give a large amount of boot space if needed. Nice...
