Fiat has cut prices of its Grande Punto to compete with entry-level Corsa and Clio models
23 July 2008

Fiat has announced a new, cheaper version of the Grande Punto. The new 1.4-litre 8 valve petrol engine will be available from £9200, putting the Punto into competition with entry-level Corsas and Clios.

The new engine offers 77bhp, competitive for its segment. Fiat has also confirmed that the Grande Punto will have the option of cheaper safety features, including the option of ESP for £200.

Fiat’s ‘Blue&Me’ hands-free system is now standard across the range. The Grande Punto will also be offered with a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty.

The Grande Punto revision should have included the 1.6 Multijet diesel, as it looks impressive in the Bravo. Is it only going in the Alfa Mito for the supermini's?

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
