Editorial Test Drive Review of Fiat Grande Punto

Launched in the Indian market in June 2009, the Punto won immediately got applause from the industry as well as users for the way it looked. Gorgeous Italian design, classiness and elegance – some of the few words that were instantly used for the car. Today the Puno sells in four engine options and multiple trim levels. However, the sales have always remained sluggish and in 2011, the Punto has had the worst record ever, selling just 5500 units between May and Oct 2011 - this inspite of the company providing various offers, schemes and benefits through its showrooms. Now this is a shame for a car that excels in various parameters and not only in the way it looks. So, what exactly are the strong points of the Punto? Read on to know what we think about this Italian hatchback.

Fiat Grande Punto Exteriors

At 3987mm in length and 1687mm in width, the Punto is a big car by hatchback standards. The low height of 1495mm gives it a very sporty stance. The Punto is a hot hatchback with class leading gorgeous form. Developed by Italdesign-Giugiaro together with the Fiat Style Centre, the styling of the Grande Punto stands out in the current automotive scene for the beauty of the exterior line, which is modern, elegant and distinctly 'Italian', a 'Mediterranean' stylistic language where the tapered rounded lines seem to be inspired by the sports cars of the 1950s and 1960s. The front has slight resemblance with the Linea though the lamps are smaller and pushed to the either sides of the bonnet. The huge rectangularish grille is broken by the number plate area and the fog lamps get their only little crafted place. The complete effect up front is up-market and the same carries on the to the side profile as well which highlights the Grande Punto’s sportiness. The rear is minimalistic in design but in a good way with small vertical tail lamps and a muscular boot and bumper below.
Depending on the model, the Punto either rides on 14-inch or 15-inch wheels. The former come shod with 165mm tyres while the latter gets wide 195mm tyres. Fiat sells the Punto in seven different color options.

Fiat Grande Punto Comfort & Suspension

A very strong point about the Punto is the way it behaves on Indian roads. The suspension set-up is definitely one of the best among the mid-size hatchbacks and ride quality over bad roads is very good. Infact, the Punto rides with a good feel, something that can be associated with bigger cars. The same also goes for the handling of the Punto. The steering might be heavy for low speed handling in city but as speeds build up, this car can turn into a great tool for curves, hills and highways.
High speed stability is also very good on the Punto. The overall passenger comfort, mainly due to the great suspension, is of the highest order. The Emotion Pack models get fat tyres which also aids in the overall stability and high speed handling factor.

Fiat Grande Punto Engine & Performance

Today the Fiat Grande Punto is offered in four different engine options – two each of petrol and diesel. On the petrol front, Fiat offers 1.2 and 1.4-litre options with the former available in Active, Dynamic and Emotion trim levels and the latter only on the Emotion Pack option. The 1.2-litre unit puts out 68PS of power and 96Nm of torque. While it is quite a smooth powerplant with a good peppy nature, the short gear ratios and high kerb weight means outright acceleration isn’t impressive and neither is the ARAI rated fuel economy of 15.2kmpl. The bigger 1.4 unit makes 90PS of power and 115Nm of torque – good figures for a hatchback but at the cost of a rated 14kmpl economy as per ARAI.
Fiat the world over is known for its multi-jet diesel engines and the Punto get the same in two versions. The normal one is the same seen on various Maruti and Tata offerings and produces 76PS of power. It is quite smooth and responsive but cannot match upto the Maruti offerings in terms of the ‘fun to drive’ element. This is where the 93PS version comes into the picture. Available only on the Emotion Pack trim level, the version changes the character of the hatchback completely and is a hoot to drive fast. The 76PS and 93PS versions have a ARAI rated economy of 19.9 and 20.0kmpl respectively.
