60sec road test
Remember the Punto Evo? Well now it's just called the simple Punto again, and that lack of pretensions is reflected in its work ethic: this is a cheap 'n' cheerful supermini with no frills or glitzy promises. It'll sell mostly on price and running costs - you can even spec it with Fiat's clever-clogs TwinAir two-cylinder petrol engine, although you may struggle to match the sky-high official economy claims. The problem is, we can think of oodles of competitors which drive better, look better and have that all-important image licked. Which means to say, the Punto is left out in the cold in CAR magazine's eyes. It's the antithesis of a sensible buy in our book.
