When it comes to making a smart choice for the road and your drive, the 2018 Punto Easy doesn’t disappoint. We like to think of the Easy as a model that exudes elegance without the hefty price tag, as it starts from just £11,151. As well as the standard features you receive in the Pop, this variant plays host to a range of additional flourishes, such as 15-inch comfortline alloy wheels, air conditioning and electrically adjustable, heated door mirrors with outside temperature sensors. In terms of engine size, the new Punto Easy is available in three options – 1.2 and 1.4 petrol TwinAir, and a sportier 1.3 MultiJet II diesel – offering a flexibility that speaks to the demands of the modern motorist in a market saturated with hatchbacks.
You can expect the same attention to detail from Fiat elsewhere within the car. Inside, the Easy seems inspired by the entry-level Pop, taking carefully placed design elements found in the basic model, and developing them into more fully realised interior concepts. From the embossed dashboard and the leather steering wheel to the Castile fabric and wraparound seats, no stone has been left unturned in the creative process – testament to Fiat’s unwavering commitment to style and flair.
In the Punto Easy, it’s all about the extra special things, the touches of luxury that really make a difference. Darkened head lamps, body-coloured door handles, 60/40 split rear seats; together, they combine to deliver the kind of driving experience every motorist expects, but doesn’t often get. Well, before now, that is.
