Fiat Punto (12-18) - rated 3.5 out of 5

The Fiat Punto is Italy’s answer to the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa, and it has been a popular seller over the years.

It was first launched way back in 1994 where its cheap purchase price, precise handling and stylish looks made it a firm favourite with car buyers. As a used car buy it also proved a very attractive purchase to young drivers looking to modify their cars into more high performance versions.

On sale were both three- and five-door versions, though far rarer is the Fiat Punto Cabriolet for those who wanting wind-in-the-hair motoring.

There has been a total of four generations to date with the latest version launched in 2012 that echoed many of the original version’s strengths. These include the sharp looks, low running costs and competitive purchase price.
