Fiat releases limited edition Punto

Fiat is hoping the introduction of a striking new limited edition version of its popular Punto supermini - the Punto Jet Black - will appeal to the younger generation.

The car really looks the part, boasting Crossover Black Metallic paint, Jet Black badging, matt black stripes and 17-inch 12-spoke smoked Sportline alloy wheels. And with prices starting from just £12,000 on-the-road, it also represents real value for money.

Production has been limited to just 300 models, making the Punto Jet Black, which is available with the nippy yet frugal 1.4 8v 77hp engine, an extremely exclusive breed.

Buyers get a lot of bang for their buck in terms of equipment, with the Italian automaker loading the car with plenty of gadgets and gizmos.

Body coloured rear spoiler and side skirts, leather steering wheel and gear knob, automatic climate control, dark tinted privacy glass, electric front windows, rear parking sensors, sports suspension, adaptive cornering fog lights, cruise control, a stop-start system, voice-controlled Blue&Me multimedia system and five airbags all come as standard.

The three-door Punto Jet Black is now on sale throughout the UK Fiat dealer network and it is available with a highly competitive 0% PCP offer for just £99 per month.
