HOW GRAND IS THIS? Review with images

AdvantagesGreat to Look at. Good to Drive. A Quality Fiat.

DisadvantagesIt May Well Depreciate More Than Most. Dealers

"..."sporting" model in the new Fiat Grande Punto line up. Presumably Fiat added the title "Grande" in there to differentiate this from the last, rather less grand, Punto, the most basic model of which is still on sale. Grande in fact is actually a reference to the somewhat increased size of Fiat's latest super-mini offering. As with all of its' rivals in this sector, this could no longer be regarded as a small car. At 4030mm in length, the Grande ..." Read review

A Grande Design!! Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesThe Bodywork and standard features

DisadvantagesMy Passenger Electric Window!

"...myself off to my local Fiat dealership. I explained to the salesman that I was looking at the Grande Punto. I took it for a test drive that afternoon and fell in love. Although I was impressed with the Bodywork of the Car it was the safety that won me over. It took me two attempts to open the Driver door before climbing in as it was so heavy. It didn't have that familiar tin box feel of previous Punto's during my test drive I felt really sale and ..." Read review

Stylish Italian

AdvantagesStyling, performance, build quality

DisadvantagesPower steering too light in both modes, dealers

"...is. I recently drove the new Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 for the first time on a 350 mile trip & hope my comments will provide you with useful information. The car was a rental car I had for four days & although I had driven the old Punto before & was left less than impressed, I had previous to this occasion, never had any dealings with the new Punto. I was handed the key at the rental desk, it has a spring loaded key blade, like a flick knife, you ..." Read review

Fiat Grande Punto lacks some omph! Review with images

AdvantagesLooks good and climate controls work quickly

DisadvantagesSlow to accelerate and you can feel every bump on the roads

"...this car I had a Fiat Punto ELX 90 1.6. As I loved this car I went for a Fiat again. This time the Fiat Grande Punto 1.4. It’s quite small with smooth lines making it look modern and sleek. The inside looks impressive. Lit up buttons throughout the entire front of the car make this model look exciting and I looked forward to trying them out. The car is 159 inches long, 66.4 inches wide and 59 inches high. It has a luxurious feel when you sit in ..." Read review

A Grande Purchase. Review with images

AdvantagesT-Jet engine, ride comfort superb, stunning to look at, Blue&Me system, 37mpg average

DisadvantagesTinny soundsystem, A few small rattles developing, Fiat dealership prices

"...for your money. I bought my Fiat Grande Punto Sporting T-Jet in July last year (2010). It was 18 months old on a 58 plate and had only covered 14000 miles. It still had 18 months of its Warranty left and only set me back £8000. I mean the car was sold new with all of the extras on it that they could have thrown at it for just over £16000. I massive half the price of buying it new and it felt like new! Mine came with the Panoramic Sunroof, Street pack ..." Read review

Fiat Grande Punto 1.2 dynamic

AdvantagesCheap, good looks, equipement, running costs, spacious

Disadvantagesunderpowered, build quality not up there with the class best, Fiat dealers

"...but other than that the fiat is a nice place to be in. Road Handling - Very good, as the chassis is shared with the corsa the car can be chucked about and enjoyed on B roads. The car is also nice and stable at speed on the motorway, and never feels like you are in a small car. Looks - Looks Great, attractive, sharp, aggressive, everything a small italian car should be. Also from the front looks like a mini maserati so its all good on the styling ..." Read review

Grande Punto fun and cheap

Advantagescheap, fun motoring

Disadvantagessmall faults let the overall car down

"...to be fairly cheap, although fiat aftercare is frankly in my opinion awful we never had too many problems with them. There are a few faults though which do let the car down. The middle brake light intermittently fails and no fix we have tried has worked for more than two weeks, the dashboard instruments randomly fail and although this is im told an issue to be fixed under warrenty the local dealer denies this. The steering wheel makes a nasty creaking ..." Read review

Fiat Grande Punto dynamic Sport 1.4

AdvantagesLooks like a nice car and is well specified

Disadvantagescould turn out to have niggling faults and local dealership is useless

"...work. I booked it into a Fiat Dealership locally, in Stockport, with a 10 day lead time, telling them of the lock and rattle problem and they diagnosed it needed a new lock and i would have to come back when the lock was obtained. Several days later I took it in for a fix while i wait and 11/2 hours later they notified me that they had got the wrong lock, the one for the nearside rather than offside.it has to go back again. i can see this is going ..."

Fait Grande Punto review

AdvantagesGood value, smooth driving, comfortable, spacious and problem free!

DisadvantagesNone (in 14 months)!

"I have had a 1.4 Dynamic grande punto (90bhp) for 14 months and have enjoyed the hassle free experience. I have driven 16,000 miles in 13 months an have found the car very comfortable.This car is very smooth to drive and offers a smooth gear change to the driver. I had the basic model with CD/radio controls on the steering wheel. For a short person it is a great car as it offers a height adustable seat for the driver. The interior is quite ..." Read review

Not so 'Grande'

AdvantagesExterior styling

DisadvantagesPoor build quality, underpowered, dangerous faults, poor aftersales service

"Worst Punto yet, I have had nothing but problems with this car from day one and the local dealership is also useless, so the warranty isnt worth the paper its written on. This is a brand new car that creaks at the rear, the brakes squeel, the horn doesnt work (MOT Fail!) the glovebox is out of line, the heater trim is warped, 2nd gear runs away with itself and accelerates without you touching anything (extremely dangerous, you cant even stop the car ..."

Grande means Great... In almost every way

AdvantagesSleek design, great Interior, Good engine performance, spacious

DisadvantagesBreaking system

"...driven every model of the Fiat Punto - 1st, 2nd and now 3rd Generation. Despite the fact that I went for the most basic model in the former two cars, I have to declare that this new make of the Punto excels the other two by miles: it has style, functionality and power - even with a small engine size (1.2). I went for a 5 door instead of 3, which makes it so much more comfortable. In addition, the Air-Con works wonders, both in hot and cold weather, ..." Read review

My Pleasurable Experience Of The Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 Dynamic Sport Review with images

AdvantagesGreat On Fuel, Low Insurance, Low Tax, Looks Good On The Eye.

DisadvantagesThe Only Disadvantage I Could Find Is That The Engine Was Only 1.4, I Prefer 2 Litre.

"The Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 Dynamic Sport really is Grande as it hints in the title! I bought my Black Fiat Grande Punto 1.4 (07 Plate) back in 2008 at auction for £5000 in full working order (Brand New Price Around £10,000). I sold it on 21st of March 2012 privately and really got my moneys worth back with a whopping £3,990. These cars really do hold their value. When I bought the car it had only done 8082 Miles on the clock and had a current ..." Read review

Grande punto, great if you ever get it!

AdvantagesSpeed and power without looking like a sports car

DisadvantagesDealerships can be useless

"*this review is based purely on my experience with my punto, if you need any technical info you should contact the dealer! My husband and I initialy signed the papers to puchase a 1.9 TD multijet sporting Grande punto in August 2006, we were given an 8 week estimate of build time however after 8 weeks of no contact we decided to contact the dealer ourselves, we were told "You have about 8-10 weeks left on your build" no appoligies for the delay! ..."
