Fiat launches new Punto Van

  • Fiat Punto van replaces outgoing Grande Punto version
  • One engine offered with three power outputs
  • Load capacity of one cubic metre and 520kg

Fiat has launched its replacement for the Grande Punto Van, the Punto Van.

The Punto Van offers the same cargo capacity as the outgoing Grande Punto with a one metre cubic cargo space and a payload of 520kg.

Just as before customers are only offered one engine with three power outputs though the 1.3-litre diesel engine has been tweaked to be more fuel efficient and emit less. The three power outputs are: 75hp with a claimed average fuel consumption of 67mpg, 85hp fitted with stop/start technology with a claimed average fuel consumption of 80mpg and 90g/km of CO2 and 95hp also fitted with stop/start with a claimed average fuel consumption of 67mpg.

The Punto Van comes with colour-coded front and rear bumpers, remote central locking, electric front windows, electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors, trip computer, height-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel, height-adjustable driver’s seat and a radio/CD player with MP3 compatibility.

In terms of safety the Punto Van comes with driver and passenger airbags, electronic stability control and a brake assistance system.

The entry level 75hp Punto Van starts at £10,990 (excluding VAT and OTR), while the 85hp costs an extra £500, and £500 more gets you into the 95hp version with the SX trim level and driver’s knee airbag.

The Punto Van is available to order in three pastel colours of white, dark blue and red, from the end of April.
