2014 Fiat Punto Review, Specs and Prices – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Fiat Punto Redesign. 2014 Fiat Punto Concept is one brand new car from Fiat that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Fiat Punto Quotes.
The introduction of the next Fiat Punto is postponed till 2014 or even 2015. Although we don’t think it will be obvious to choose for 2015. Although the management talks a lot about the economic situation, the motive for postponement is something else. More of a technical nature, would be more suitable. One would say Fiat tries to enhance the technical conditions of the next Punto. Our editorial office has some reliable information from Turin. Fiat did not only reject the current design proposal, but also the technical line up of the car based on the current platform. The current technical state, was marked as insufficiently innovative. The new approach is a new development and maybe in cooperation with a partner.
When we think of an Italian car, there’s a romantic notion that unfolds and with that, rightly or wrongly, certain expectations form. And if we were talking about an Italian supercar, you’d be in good standing. But the Fiat Punto, on the other hand, plays in a field where value for money and a competitive edge takes the form of electric windows and Bluetooth connectivity. Romance aside, it’s game-on in the light-hatch segment.
Basic equipment for the Punto Pop includes, 15-inch alloys, halogen headlights, daytime running lights, electric front windows, fabric seats, remote central locking, and a six-speaker audio system with Blue&Me Bluetooth connectivity.
The Punto Lounge gains fog lights, tinted glass, 16-inch alloys, sports body kit, leather seats, climate control, electric windows front and rear, rear parking sensors, leather wrap steering wheel and gear shift, rain sensing wipers, ambient dash lighting and electric driver’s seat with lumbar adjust, USB and auxiliary audio connectivity.
2014 Fiat Punto Price. | Pricing for the new 2014 Fiat Punto has been set at $16,000 – $25,000 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2014 Fiat Punto we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.
For the 2014 model year update, Fiat of Brazil is also including a different alloy wheel design. The remote keyless entry with foldable key fob is also being included in the lower end variants of the car.
Inside, the circular dials as seen on the Punto EVO continue to exist. The major inclusion in the 2014 model year is the Fiat DNA system. The DNA system is accessed by a DNA selector located near the driver’s seat. It has three driving modes; Dynamic where the car favors sporty driving, Normal and Automatic.
Despite its low price the entry level Fiat Punto Pop comes with plenty of standard equipment; denim inserts in the seats, a six-speaker radio/CD/MP3 audio system with steering wheel controls, and the Fiat/Microsoft Blue&Me with Bluetooth and voice activation to minimise driver inattention.
Fiat Punto Easy has 15-inch alloy wheels, more stylish dashboard, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear lever, a front seat armrest, and rear parking sensors. The topline Fiat Punto Lounge that we tested comes with 16-inch alloys, sports seats in the front, a soft-touch finish to the dash, climate control air conditioning, ambient lighting and automatic wipers.
The Punto Pop is available with the choice of a five-speed manual or five-speed Dualogic robotised semi-automatic transmission, the standard offering across the remainder of the line-up.
Delivering a practical 57kW at 6000rpm and 115Nm at 3250rpm, the Punto performs on par with my expectations which I have to say weren’t terribly high. Weighing in at 1024kg and measuring just over four metres in length, the typical city car shape and weight of the Punto work in its favour.
The five-speed manual transmission fitted to our Pop test vehicle offers short and precise gear changes. However, when you up the revs, as manual-drive enthusiasts often do, it becomes a noisy affair as the Punto calls upon all of its might to respond.
Around town, the manual transmission proved easy, thanks in part to the lightness of the Punto’s clutch. Even the constant gear switching in city traffic was pretty effortless. While the Punto clearly managed the task of high-speed freeway driving, the 1368cc engine is most happy around town and overall dynamics feel much better suited to purely urban motoring demands. The Punto’s leisurely pace is evident from its meander to 100km/h in 13.2 seconds, with a top speed of just 165km/h.
The engine in the Punto is the basic version of Fiat’s 1.4-litre four cylinder unit. It has a power output of just 57 kW. Peak torque is 115 Nm at 3250 revs. Gearbox choices are a conventional six-speed manual and the same gearbox in Dualogic format that is without a clutch pedal as the manual gearbox changes itself.
