Drives well with a choice a three great diesels, Start&Stop is a welcome addition and there's a full mesh bulkhead as standard. Smart-looking small van.
Current generation Punto Van made its debut at the 2012 CV Show. Replacing the Grande Punto there’s a much greater selection of models with a choice of three 1.3-litre diesels (75, 85 and 95hp) and 0.9-litre 85hp TwinAir petrol engine. Fiat’s quick-acting Start&Stop system comes as standard on all bar the 75hp diesel.
On top of the restyled front-end it gets a revised cab interior and load volume and gross payload remain the same as its predecessor at 1.0m3 and 520kg respectively.
Standard equipment is high across the range with ESP, remote central locking, electric windows and door mirrors, trip computer, driver and passenger airbags, rake and reach adjustable steering wheel as well as a height-adjustable driver’s seat. SX specification adds manual air conditioning and driver’s knee airbag.
A full Review & Buyer’s Guide will be published shortly.
