Fiat Punto Van (2007–2014)
New Fiat Punto Van goes on sale
Powered by Fiat’s dependable 75PS 1.3-litre 16v MultiJet engine, a 1.0 m3 load capacity and the good looks of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s Grand Punto car, the Grande Punto Van balances style with practicality.
Well bolstered seats – with height adjustment for the driver – remote central locking, and a radio/CD player add to cabin comfort, while climate control with pollen filter is available as an option. The 1248cc, Euro 4 Common Rail MultiJet diesel engine features a turbo and intercooler and is linked to a five-speed manual gearbox. It gives the Grande Punto Van a maximum speed of 103 mph, yet returns a claimed 62.8mpg.
Standard equipment includes body coloured bumpers and side panels, electrically operated wing mirrors, ABS anti-lock braking with EBD (Electric Brake Distribution), adjustable headlamps, height and reach adjustable steering wheel, Dualdrive power steering and a locking fuel cap. The Grande Punto Van is available in Ambient White or Evocative Blue, with Exotica Red as a special order option.
The revised Punto Van is unveiled
This 'replaces' the Grande Punto Van in the Fiat Professional line-up and brings a host of improvements over its predecessor, providing customers with a strong proposition in the car-derived van market, with a load capacity of 1.0 m3 and a payload of 520 kg.
The Punto Van for 2012 features external styling changes with fully colour-coded front and rear bumpers for a more sophisticated look. The new model combines the successful style of both the Grande Punto and Punto Evo passenger cars, so the interior features new sportier seat fabrics and on the SX version there is a new dashboard with soft touch materials and an elegant design.
Standard equipment on all versions includes ESP (Electronic Stability Programme), BAS (Brake Assistance System), remote central locking, electric front windows, electrically adjustable and heated body coloured mirrors, trip computer, driver and passenger airbags, radio/CD/MP3 player, electric power steering, height and reach-adjustable steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver’s seat.
The Punto Van will be available with one diesel engine, the award-winning and best-selling 1.3 MultiJet II diesel, in three levels of power - 75PS with 190Nm, a mid range 85PS with 200Nm and the top 95PS version which also has 200Nm of torque. Emissions are 112g/km, 90g/km and 110g/km respectively with stop/start standard on the two more powerful versions. It will be available in three pastel colours White, Dark Blue and Red.
