I have a Fiat Punto (2002 in my case), and I so glad with it, have a very good performance 130HP in a 1.8 normal aspired (150HP Golf GTi 1.8 helped with turbo), the only bad fact is the local dealer, the local dealer only think in your other brands, (Toyota, Chervrolet) and Fiat/Alfa have very very bad atention.

After owning a number of small hot hatches, I found one of these selling cheap so decided to give the Fiat a go. I had the car two whole days before I part ex it for last of the line Saxo VTS. You may say the Saxos are common, but they're much, much faster and use less fuel. I've always been told Fiats are unreliable and generally rubbish cars. I didn't believe the stereotyping until owning one of these cars. So a word of advice, avoid this at all costs. The 1.8 engine isn't fast, uses too... (read more)

whoa.... this is an absolute stormer...in Fifth at 80,100,120 pulls like a train..(just for testing purposes of course).
A very practical, and sexy little Italian number... with a little whiff of Fiat's glory days.
Sounds superb.. with a range of exhaust notes warning that it's no pushover... and it isn't... looks can be deceiving.. not only is this car a design classic already (2002 Mk2 ) it is beautifully understated for the astounding amount of grunt it delivers on tap.. (read more)

It is a very good car and I highly recommend it. (read more)

The shape of the Fiat Punto 1.8 HGT 16v car is a very trendy Italian design, bold and wedgie lines screams out it's origin. I have the Italian Azzurri Blue model, which is an awesome color for people who want a color that stands out in the crowd. Mid and rear exhausts were modified with 4 outlets, chrome performance exhausts for better acceleration and sound (it's deep and not noisy like others I have heard). Certainly it looks awesome too. In general, I would recommend this pocket... (read more)

Having owned both a 1.4 turbo back in 1998 from new and now an 18 month Fiat Punto 1.8 16v HGT I would rather they left the turbo on and just modified the rest as you miss that rush of power from the turbo. Overall still a good car but I wish Fiat could get rid of the gremlins! (read more)
