Fiat tries to improve the Punto by adding new sporting trim level upgrades

Just because of the delicate situation existent now in Europe, including Italy, Fiat is not in a big hurry to release a replacement model for the Punto, or at least this is what Sergio Marchionne, the CEO of the company stated. The original Punto was launched as the Grande Punto at the beginning, just before it got renamed to Punto Evo. This happened for its first facelift in 2009. In 2012 there has been a second facelift. The model was on the market for 8 years which is quite a lot.



Now, the Italians are trying to keep a certain level in terms of sales by releasing new editions and improvements for different pieces of equipment. For the UK, for example, the specialists have developed a new Sporting trim level and several specification upgrades. So that you know, the new Fiat Punto Sporting is available with 3- or 5-door body. In terms of engine, the engineers have offered two options, a 1.4-liter petrol capable of generating 76 horsepower and a 1.4-liter turbo diesel capable of producing 104 horsepower. when it comes to the exterior of the car, we can see it has body colored rear spoiler and side skirts, gloss black door mirrors, gloss black painted roof, dark interior roof lining, sports leather steering wheel, dark headlamps, dark tinted privacy glass and to transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered 16-inch Sportline alloy wheels. As standard, the new model will also get a sport suspension and front fog lights with cornering function. The entry-level model will also get a new dashboard with diamond embossing aligned to the rest of the range, door mirrors and a lot more. These are the details we have for you for now on the new Italian delight.
