New Nissan X-Trail and Juke models on sale this summer, plus Fiat reveals limited-edition Punto
1 May 2014

Nissan's new X-Trail will be priced from £22,995 when it goes on sale this July. Available with four trim levels and in both 2WD and 4WD guise, the X-Trail is some £2600 cheaper than its predecessor in entry-level form.

Elsewhere in the Nissan range, the facelifted Juke will cost from £13,420 and arrive in showrooms in June. Prices rise to £22,670 for a top-spec 4WD version in Tekna trim and with a CVT. The revised model gets a new front-end style as well as new personalisation options.

Priced from £12,000, Fiat's new Punto Jet Black 2 comes with a 76bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine as well as special black paint, 17-inch alloy wheels, stripe stickers and a spoiler outside. Inside, upgrades include a leather steering wheel, climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, parking sensors and cruise control.

Punto was a great looking hatch when launched, still does in a way, but it really does need replacing. Shame Fiat haven't bothered to though

No doubt FIAT will replace every vehicle they make with a resized version of the 500 ... I'm keeping an eye out for the 500 truck!! ...

With FIAT concentrating on 2 ranges, the 500 and Panda and with Alfa dropping the Mito and Guilietta, what does that leave to compete with the Focus, Golf etc. With no sign of a Bravo replacement, they surely can't leave the Lancia/Chrysler Delta to fight this class alone.

I thought all Puntos counted as Special Editions, judging by how few they sell in the UK? It's a shame, because I like the shape, especially the Maserati-esque nose. Pininfarina design, isn't it?

But... it does appear as though Fiat have forgotten about it. When you think how successful it was in its hey day. The 500L does seem to be doing well for Fiat, but I see less and less new-shape Pandas and I just hope they don't put all their eggs in one basket.

    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
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    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
  • Citroën C3

    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
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    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
