There is a choice of six engines on offer – 1.2-litre 65bhp and 1.4-litre
77bhp versions of Fiat’s renowned eight-valve Fire petrol engine and four
examples of Fiat’s MultiJet commonrail direct injection turbo diesel
technology with 75bhp and 90bhp versions of the award-winning 1.3-
litre 16-valve unit plus 120bhp and 130bhp examples of the 1.9-litre 8-
valve MultiJet.
Both petrol engines and the 75bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet are paired with five-
speed manual gearboxes while the remaining engines are mated to six-
speed manual transmissions.
There are five specification levels to tempt the discerning buyer kicking
off with the generously equipped Active, moving through Active Sport,
Dynamic and Eleganza models before topping out with the Sporting
version of the Grande Punto.
Driven here is the Grande Punto 1.3-litre 75bhp MultiJet in three-door
form boasting Active trim which includes electric front windows, remote
centrtal locking, ‘follow-me-home’ headlights, electric door mirrors, trip
computer, ABS braking with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), plus four-
speaker sound system with CD and steering wheel-mounted controls.

Thank you good people.
I thought it read like a load of twaddle and have cut out all apart from
the last par, which is actually relevant and makes sense to normal human
beings. I know nothing about cars, but then again, I suppose 85 per cent
of readers don't either!
I e-mailed it to Paul.. but he'd probably understand having worked with
Fiat to develop the company's diesel engines.

There are six car options to choose from:

1.2-litre, petrol (65 Brake Horse Power), five speed manual
1.4-litre, petrol (77bhp), five speed manual
1.3-litre, diesel (75bhp), five speed manual
1.3-litre, diesel (90bhp), six speed manual
1.9-litre, diesel (120bhp), six speed manual
1.9-litre, diesel (130bhp), six speed manual

These cars are avilable with various add-ons(Active, moving through Active Sport, Dynamic and Eleganza models before topping out with the Sporting version of the Grande Punto.)

 

I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

i understand them both, dans is clearer........

 

 not a bad little motor to drive ( we have a couple as pool cars from fiat......)

 but then again we dont have to live with them day in day out.....occaisional use only !

 fiats eh, i used to own a few- their paintwork/ rush  issue is now vastly improved but fit and finish could still be better..... and electricals need watching !

 

 our staff member of the year award scheme/ prize is a brand new Fiat  panda 'active'- not bad as a staff prize !!!!

 

 the multiplas we have are all dropping to bits...... not good for a car less than 5 months old....

there must be good ones out there !- i know moggies likes hers......

 

need a stella and i need one now !

Hey! Fiats are great!

I have a Punto and a Ulysse. My Punto is my second one - loads of extras for less money. If you comapre with most in that sort of price of range, Fiats are fantastic! And they have not once let me down (yet!)

Still don't know what I want to do when I grow up...
