Fiat Grande Punto 1.4
Advantages: Great On Fuel, Low Insurance, Low Tax, Looks Good On The Eye.
Disadvantages: The Only Disadvantage I Could Find Is That The Engine Was Only 1.4, I Prefer 2 Litre.
The Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 Dynamic Sport really is Grande as it hints in the title! I bought my Black Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 (07 Plate) back in 2008 at auction for £5000 in full working order (Brand New Price Around £10,000). I sold it on 21st of March 2012 privately and really got my moneys worth back with a whopping £3,990. These cars really do hold their value. When I bought the car it had only done 8082 Miles on the clock and had a current MOT and valid Tax. When I sold it had then done 38,772 Miles on the clock and didn't have any Tax but it did have a current MOT. So if you calculate that it means that I drove 30,690 and owned the car for 4 years sold it with no Tax and only lost £1010. Now I Say lost but I didn't really lose out at all! In the 4 years I owned my Punto it was a very pleasurable experience. I had it serviced every year as I believe that if you look after your car, Your car will look after you! Some people may ask ... Then why did you sell it? Good Question! I started to find after 5 years driving a 1.4 I was getting bored of it. I've wanted a 2 litre Engine and finally took the leap and purchased a Golf GTI 2 Litre. But we aren't here to talk about Golfs. Its all about the Punto Baby! Here's some stats and facts about the Immense Fiat Punto Grande 1.4 Dynamic Sport 2 Door Hatchback....
Key Features: ABS, Alloy Wheels, Air Conditioning, CD Player, Electric Windows, Electric Mirrors, Front Fog Lights, Full Service History, On Board Computer, Multiple Airbags, Power Steering, Engine Immobilizer
CO2 Emissions 139 g/km
Fuel Economy (Combined) 47.9 mpg (Combined)
Vehicle Tax (12 months) £115
Ill round this review off by saying that I would buy another Fiat Punto again in the future but I will say that it would need to be a 2 litre as Im used to the pulling power now with my Golf. If your looking for a wee car that is good on fuel, insurance and tax then I would have to say the Fiat should really be considered.
I will give the overall rating of 10/10.
