Two great new summer offers have been made available on the 2012 Fiat Punto, the company has just announced.

Fiat Punto

Under the marketing campaign ‘Let’s get straight to the Punto’, most versions of the popular supermini qualify for attractive money-saving deals, which run until the end of September. The two main offers are:

On Easy, GBT and TwinAir versions: £1000 off the list price, plus a Brio pack of high value extra equipment worth £1090 (£1035 on TwinAir versions), and the option to take the car under Personal Contract Hire for £129 a month, after an initial rental payment. These models already come with 15-inch alloy wheels, five airbags and a leather steering wheel (not TwinAir) as standard.

The Brio pack includes: Blue&Me infotainment system, rear parking sensors, adaptive cornering foglights, climate control and cruise control. As TwinAir already has cornering foglights as standard it gets a leather steering wheel and gearknob instead.

On 1.2-litre Pop versions: a £1400 customer saving. The car already gets electric front windows, power steering, remote central locking and a 40/60 split rear seat as standard.

“The B segment is a highly competitive market sector, but we have a car that can take on the best of our rivals,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK Ltd. “We also have some strong offers in place to ensure that customers take a close look at this latest Fiat Punto, and I’m confident they will like what they see.”

The 2012 Punto features a new exterior design, new range of colours, new alloy wheel designs and two new engines in the form of the award-winning 85hp 0.9-litre TwinAir and the 85hp 1.3-litre 16-valve MultiJet 2 diesel. Both of these economical yet responsive engines also deliver sub-100g/km CO2 figures.

List prices (before offers) start at £9900 (OTR) for the 1.2 Pop 8-valve 69hp rising to £15,600 (OTR) for the 1.3 Lounge MultiJet 85hp.
