Fiat Grande Punto (06-10)

Summary

3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Basically - You've got a Fiat. The styling is quite subdued such that only car buffs would be able to figure it was a touch sporty.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They like it, although the impracticality of the 3 door thing gets some stick.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably not, in hindsight it was a heart not head buy. I just cant get enough of Italian cars - until i own them.

What are you likely to buy next?
Skoda Fabia/Octavia VRS

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The turbo gives it a good shove, but the engine does run out of puff in the high rev range. Fun but not outrageous. Although the A-pillars block your vision on roundabouts.

What's it like to park?
Strangely difficult, for some reason i can never park it straight. Never had this problem with other cars.
