Prices for Fiat's latest range of Puntos, which are on sale now, have been unveiled by the Italian car maker.

The most basic three-door model, known as the Pop, will be priced at £9,990 and for that you get a 1.2 8v engine producing 69hp and standard equipment including remote central locking, electric front windows, driver and passenger airbags, window airbags and a radio/CD/MP3 player.

At the other end of the scale, you can fork out £15,600 for the Lounge 1.3-litre MultiJet version of the new Punto.

This five-door model comes with automatic dual zone climate control, ambient interior lighting and electric sunroof as standard and seven airbags, among a host of other features, while under the hood the engine produces 85hp.

However, more powerful models are available at lower prices, including the 1.4-litre MULTIAIR Turbo, which churns out 135hp in a three-door format.

The new Punto line-up has been simplified by being divided into three classes: the most basic Pop class, the intermediate Easy level and the high-spec Lounge class.

Among the most significant changes between this new Punto range and the last is the addition of two new engine choices - an 85hp version of the MultiJet diesel engine and the 85hp TwinAir.

The latter of these two will not be available until April and will come in three and five-door options priced at £12,100 and £12,700 respectively.

"Punto is up against some tough competition in its sector but we are confident that we are able to offer an attractive package at exceptional value-for-money," commented Elena Bernardelli, marketing director at Fiat Group Automobiles UK.

However, fans of the Punto who feel that the new line-up is a little bit out of their price range might prefer to hang on to their current model a little longer instead.

You can keep your older Punto in good condition by replacing any worn-out or damaged components by searching for Fiat car parts online at sites such as BreakerYard.
