Re: FIAT Mk2 Punto HGT

Owned a facelift version for six months but in the end I went back to my 96 75SX.

Re: FIAT Mk2 Punto HGT

Mk2 and mk2b have serious style compare to the other hot hatches of the day.

The HGT Abarth unlike the Mk1 GT lived upto Mr Abarth's rule: "if the car needs a turbo it hasn't got a powerful enough engine in it" Therefore the GT wasn't an Abarth and most or even all original Abarths upto the new 595/696 don't have turbos because of that principle, from what I've read anyway.

Indeed the HGT wasn't very popular in the old Top Gear review,.. but if you watch it she does give the car many compliments, however in the end she says she prefers the classic 500 Abarth as it has that classic and seasoned appeal.
And without being overly sexist the 500 was particularly popular with the ladies back in the day and still now with the new 500, which doesn't help the HGT in the review as such.
