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 49 - 78 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.

With economical engines and low CO2 figures, the Punto Evo is a cheap car to run - even the top 135bhp MultiAir Turbo returns 50mpg. Insurance is affordable too, with ratings starting at group 7 for the 1.4-litre Active models, going up to group 21 for the quickest MultiAir Turbo version. Fiat servicing rates tend to be very competitive but the dealers have a poor reputation and often finish low down in owner satisfaction surveys.

Thanks to its range of small cars with efficient engines, Fiat boasts the lowest average CO2 emissions figure of any car manufacturer. All the engines in the Punto Evo range are economical and have low emissions, but its the MultiJet diesels which stand out - the 75bhp version emits just 108g/km of CO2 and averages 69mpg.

Fiat's reputation has suffered due to some poor models in the 1980s and 1990s, but its modern vehicles are mechanically robust. There have, however, been issues with niggling faults, in particular electric problems, but Fiat is aiming to improve this. We've had mixed reports from owners of the Grande Punto with some suffering from a catalogue of faults while others experience no problems at all.
