Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

When crash-tested by Euro NCAP in 2017, the Punto was the first car to be award no stars whatsoever.

The primary reason is due to a complete lack of contemporary safety kit, such as lane-keeping assistance and autonomous emergency braking.

It's not completely without safety features, though: standard kit includes driver, passenger and window airbags, front and rear adjustable head restraints, adaptive cornering lights and daytime running lights. Furthermore, the front fog light flashes at the same time as the first indicator blink to signify a lane-change manoeuvre.

The Fiat Punto also comes with ABS, ESP and a hill holder system to aid hill starts while rain sensors can be specified as an optional extra.

Fiat Punto practicality is very good when comparing load space to its rivals. With the seats in place the load area is 275 litres and when folded this expands to 1,030 litres.

It has less space when the seats are in place when compared to rivals including the Ford Fiesta (which has a load space of 259 litres with seats in place and 979 with the rear seats folded), but it has more space when the rear bench is folded.

There are a good range of cubby holes inside the Fiat Punto while the glovebox and the door pockets are of a reasonable size.

Four adults can sit in relative comfort but six-footers may feel a tad cramped if sitting in the rear of the Punto.
