This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Fiat Punto (12-18) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Only scores 2 stars in the NCAP crash tests, which puts it well below more modern cars. A driver's airbag was not standard on all models and passenger airbag was only an option as was ABS on all but the GT Turbo. An immobiliser was fitted to most models.

The boot is of an impressive size for its class and can be further enlarged if needed thanks to the split folding rear seat bench.
