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 34 - 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.

Cheap to buy and cheap to run. Warranty should cover the reliability issues. Good fuel consumption, competitive insurance premiums. Depreciation is a worry but it’s not difficult to get a good deal when new.

Punto scores remarkably well on the eco front. With an average of 138 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are comparably low for a super mini hatchback. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.2-litre petrol, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is very frugal, averaging 51 mpg.

This model shares all of its major components with the previous generation model, which suffered below-average reliability. Fiat should have ironed-out some of the niggles, but Punto still lags behind.
