With lively engines, unusual Speedgear sequential transmission and a funky TV ad campaign the second generation Punto was aimed at younger drivers. It is one of the best-looking hatchbacks around and exudes cheeky Italian charm. It's spacious, practical, easy to drive, safe and cheap. Reliability was patchy and although most problems have been fixed under warranty, this is a car for which an aftermarket warranty makes sense.
