Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 42 - 64 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Low list prices, economical engines, good resale value forecasts and low insurance groups should mean the Grande Punto is one of the most cost-effective small cars to run.

The Grande Punto scores remarkably well on the eco front. With an average of 134g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are comparably low for a supermini hatchback. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.3-litre Multijet with 75bhp - it emits 119g/km of CO2 so is cheap to tax and can return an impressive 63mpg.

The engines are developments of proven engines in the Fiat range and should be mechanically robust. Fiat is also working to improve quality and reduce the number of niggling faults found with its vehicles.
