Something not right with those prices!!
The OTR price for an Evo Sporting is 15175 not 13795!
On that price list they have the 1.4 Multi-Air Sporting cheaper than the 1.3 Multi-Jet GP


"1.6 MultiJet 120 Sporting (about bloody time! )" Agreed!...although it's a bit late for me now

Re: Changes to Punto Evo Range

What would make you take the 1.6 120 MultiJet over 1.4T out of curiousity? Wasnt expecting any changes! Be interesting to see what offer comes in place as the current 2000 contribution has already ended

Not 100% sure I would have gone for the 1.6 M-Jet over the 1.4 Multi-Air but I think it would have been interesting to test drive. Ive got a Doblo van with a 1.9 M-Jet engine and its great, very reliable and pretty quick especially for a small van.
Plus I know that about 50% of Grande sporting owners maintained that the M-jet was the best engine & 50% maintain that the T-Jet is better, so I can see much the same happening with the Evos engine line up.

Re: Changes to Punto Evo Range

I just commented in the Panda changes thread (which mentioned the 1.2 in the Evo) about the lack of 1.6 diesel Sporting, that's wicked that theyre gonna offer it

Shame about the Eleganza MultiAir and Multijet going though, the MultiAir Eleganza seems like a big seller for Forum users and i can't see what takes its place in the new line up

Interesting range revisions!

Re: Changes to Punto Evo Range

Speaking as an Eleganza owner, I can only guess that the Eleganza model has disappeared because the price difference over a Dynamic was not great enough. Just 400 when I bought mine back in April. As you say there seems to be no replacement in the revised line up. Shame !

Small "PS" to add. The Fiat website shows that the Eleganza is still available. If the changes are immediate, how long does it take them to update their website ?

I can't really understand that, the petrol sporting is hardly what you would call thirsty or bad on emissions, in fact it is one of the best of the petrol models in those terms.

Bit odd that they didn't actually tell us there has been a price reduction!

Re: Changes to Punto Evo Range

I can't see the point of bringing back the 1.2 8v. Even the 1.4 8v was slow enough.

If i knew the sporting was getting a price reduction i would have held out another few weeks Loving the 105 though.

the sporting with the 2k reduction was cheaper than the new price (which I'm pleased with considering I bought mine yesterday!).

Re: Changes to Punto Evo Range

1.6 Multijet thats <120g/km ?!? damn I would have been eligable for one of those thru work... oh well I'm very happy to have a 1.3 [95] before it got deleted after 1 year!!??

So Fiat finally bring out a car in the Eco sub 100g/km category! I'll be interested to hear how it drives. The [95] is bad enough before the turbo kicks in so I reckon loosing 10hp wont be much fun for the sake of saving 20 road tax
