The Fiat Punto is a supermini that has been produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat since 1994. It is currently in its third generation and was initially codenamed Project 176. When the Punto was released in early 1994, it was the replacement for the Fiat Uno and was awarded the title of European Car of the Year for 1995. Its eye-catching look created by Giorgetto Giugiaro was met with great appreciation, with the vertical tail lights being an addition made after Giugiaro's initial concept. Furthermore, the car's competitive pricing played a large role in its success.
The Punto range included the 1.1 and 1.2L petrol engines and the 1.7 diesel. For those looking for something more powerful, a 1.6 Sporting was offered at the time, replaced later by a 16 valve 1.2 unit. The most powerful version was the 1.4 GT Turbo, which had a top speed of 124mph and could accelerate to 60mph in 7.9 seconds. Those who preferred to go for a convertible could opt for the Bertone-made Punto cabriolet. This model featured a powered retractable roof and was one of the cheapest convertible cars available at that time.
