I've had two separte Punto hire cars for a few days each. Overall I liked it. The foot well seems very small, but once your going its ok. Mine had radio controls on the steering wheel, were very useful. The trip computer also very helpful. The rear window is too small for my liking, and the rear mirror also tiny. I never liked the brakes. Good equipment, 50+mpg, seems to go quite fast for 1.2, except when going up hill in 4th or 5th, then it needs pushing or changing to 3rd! I didn't like... (read more)

I've had the Fiat Grande Punto 1.2 Active for 3 months now and am still in love with it. Looks, Voice Recognition System (Blue&Me), Space, The ride is so smooth you could play marbles in the back. Apparently its a very safe car to crash in but I haven't tested that yet. A little under powered but it's a 1.2 so I wasn't expecting the world. Menu systems (3) are a little unintuitive. Why when the MP3 player is on does the radio just say "MEDIA PLAYER" uselessly and not the track name and only... (read more)

The Fiat Grande Punto 1.2 Active is a beautiful Design,
The Hub Caps featured on the early models are probably the most convincing ive ever seen, When clean they look like alloys.
Handling and Gear changes are very smooth, The engine is very quiet. There is plenty of space in the boot and front seats. The Dash is quite stylish, .
You get around 45mpg when doing 70mph on a motorway so fairly economical. A lot of faults seemed to appear in the first few years, I have experienced Faulty Starting... (read more)

Looks good with Maserati influenced design. Large boot and plenty of room in the cabin. Average 50+ mpg on a motorway run. Good level of equipment as standard.
There is too much plastic inside which tends to creak over uneven surfaces. Ride quality is a little hard and steering lacks feeling. To many faults found during warranty period. I have been into the Dealer numerous times for parts to be replaced (water pump, drop links, 3x demister vent panels (due to warping through heat, still not... (read more)
