The Fiat Punto line-up has been updated with a new specification level, called Sporting, and some new equipment for the existing versions. The old Lounge and TwinAir specs are no longer available, though the TwinAir engine is now available in other versions instead.

The new Sporting spec, which costs from £12,355, features a rear spoiler, a black roof, sporty suspension, heated door mirrors, a leather steering wheel and gearlever, new headlight designs, tinted windows and 16-inch alloy wheels as standard. The interior is finished with a new dashboard design and black roof lining.

This new spec is only available with the 1.4-litre petrol engine, with either 76bhp or 104bhp, and with either three or five doors.

The Sporting version is based on the GBT spec, and both get black fabric seats, front foglights, side airbags and alloy wheels. Standard equipment in the entry-level Pop model includes remote central locking, an MP3-compatible CD player, power steering and electric front windows. It also gets a new dashboard with a diamond design and colour-coded door handles.

All cars in the Punto range have a 275-litre boot that expands to an impressive 1,030 litres with the rear seats folded down. However, the base Pop model doesn’t have split-folding rear seats, so the full rear bench seat has to be folded down to get larger items in.

The engines available in the Fiat Punto are 1.2-litre or 1.4-litre petrols, a 1.3-litre diesel or the clever 900cc TwinAir petrol. The 1.2-litre petrol makes 68bhp, while the 1.4-litre produces either 76bhp or 104bhp.

The 900cc TwinAir petrol, despite being the smallest capacity engine in the range, produces 84bhp – the same as the 1.3-litre diesel. The Fiat Punto range starts from £9,950 for the entry-level Pop model, going up to £13,995 for the top-spec Sporting with the 1.4-litre petrol engine.
