The second generation arrived in 1999. and adopt more radical body design and interior design, but also by the technical innovation. This generation has proved to be a very dependable car and managed, because there was no need to radically change. The third generation, which came out this year, is just the next step in the development and improvement of the already solid car. For that reason may not be called Punto 3, simply because it is not fully informed new car.
Fiat Punto belongs to segment B, that is a small city cars. Length depends on whether the three-or five-door. In our test car was a five-door, whose length is 3865 m, width 1.66m height 1.48m. Wheelbase is 2.46m.
Body style is characterized by large clear headlamps, and now Fiat’s distinctive grille. Hindquarters, except in minor details remained the same as the previous model.
The interior offers plenty of room in the front while the rear can accommodate two adults, but at the expense of comfort in the front seats. The interior is done in two colors, dark-light combinations that create the effect that the space is bigger than it actually jeste.Plastika of which was made the instrument panel at the bottom of a fairly hard and harshly treated. The boot holds 297 liters., Which is solid for this class of vehicle.
Driving position is solid, everything is where it should be, and the commands do not require particular habituation. The seats are excellent, comfortable and offer good lateral support, if the driver has a sporting ambitions. Adjustable driver’s seat in all directions, and height adjustable steering wheel provides the opportunity to find the ideal driving position.
Fiat Punto is equipped with ultra modern, small, multijet diesel engine, the power capacity of 1.3 70KS. Here is applied the system of direct fuel injection combined with turbocharging and intercooling. In the cylinder head are driven by twin cam 16 valve. Like any modern diesel and this has considerable torque of 180Nm at just 1750 r / min.

Auto with this particular engine has the agility to ride. Spoils the fun too soft suspension that although the normlanoj comfortable ride, it seems to be embarrassed body leans more engaged in the passes of the curve.
As for the strong brakes catch and has no problem with the dosage, but it is unacceptable that the failure does not have ABS (given the extra 500 EUR).
This car has a fairly rich Dynamic package, which includes manual air conditioning, power steering Dual drive wheel with a very pleasant City fashion, central lock, el. front windows, electric. adjustment of external mirrors with defrost function and vazdušnjim airbags for driver and front passenger, adjustable steering wheel and driver seat height and low fog lamps integrated into the bumper, which is normally in the body color. Nevertheless, we think it is unacceptable that with this level of equipment does not go and ABS.
For something a little more money can be obtained from the model Punto Sporting the same house, with a petrol engine of 1.4 L 16-valve, 95 bhp power and sportier image. With him now with all this equipment come with ABS with EDB, VDC stability control, sports steering wheel and alloy wheels.
