Setting the standard across the entire 2018 Fiat range, the 1.2 TwinAir petrol engine is a trusty option whatever the variant. The Punto Pop, Easy and GBT are all available with this engine type, and it really isn’t hard to see why. Nippy and efficient, the 1.2 is ideal for a broad range of drivers – it's the perfect choice if you’re just starting out, and looking for an engine that’s both manageable and insurance-friendly. It’s also a great engine for new families or couples looking for an economical option that definitely won’t guzzle petrol or money. What stands out about the 1.2 is its exceptional fuel economy, boasting a cool 52.3 miles per gallon and a truly impressive tank range of 518 miles. Plus, when you opt for a 1.2 engine, you’ll be pleased to know it’s easy on the environment as well as your bank balance. With CO2 emissions at around the 126g/km mark, the 1.2 represents a vast improvement on the output many meatier engines are responsible for. But it’s not all serious – there are still fun and games to be had with the 1.2. Top speeds can reach upwards of 97 miles per hour, and you can expect to achieve 0-60 in 14.4 seconds. Sure, it’s not breaking any records, but it doesn’t promise to either.
Whichever model you go for, the 1.2 underpins the range, and there’s a truly compelling reason for that – it’s the conventional, stable and reliable heart of many a fantastic new Fiat.
