Fiat Punto 2012 prices announced

Prices for the 2012 Fiat Punto range have been announced.

The entry-level 1.2 8v Pop costs 9990 410 less than the 1.2 8v Active model it replaces. Pop trim carries forward the outgoing versions kit, including remote central locking, electric front windows, driver and passenger airbags and MP3 connectivity as standard.

The mid-spec trim is now called Easy; it includes 15-inch alloy wheels and air conditioning. A sportier version of this trim called GBT is also available - the name highlights Fiats association with British Cycling.

The new top-of-the-range trim is Lounge, which includes automatic dual-zone climate control, seven airbags, cruise control and an electric sunroof as standard. Lounge versions start at 12,900.

Two new engines have been introduced: an 84bhp version of the 1.3-litre Multijet diesel and the two-cylinder, 0.9-litre Twinair, which is available from April 2012. All Punto engines now have a stop-start system as standard.

Fiat has introduced three new colour options for the 2012 Punto: Brit Pop Blue, Tango Red and Underground Grey. There are new colours and materials inside, too.
