Punto evo or 2012+

What is the difference between the evo and the 2012+? Just noticed you could select between the two on this forum.

One has a chrome trim on the bonnet.

The other might have a 2 cylinder engine..

They are all basically GPs underneath.



Many of the 2006 faults still apply to 2016 models

GUIDEs for the GP are very helpful

There's a summary of the changes here on Wikipedia:

Re: Punto evo or 2012+

The main difference Is that fiat simplified the whole punto range.

Less engine options, Less interior options, less optional extras and reduced the cost of building the car by deleting unnecessary trim.

The 2012 punto is in essence an Evo, the evo had a lot of updates over the Grande Punto like large amounts of the interior being redesigned new engines, like the multiair and 1.6mjt and a facelift of the exterior panels and trim. The 2012 carried on with the updated look both inside and out without any significant changes to the appearance other than removing the expensive inlay trims on the 2 part bumpers of the evo.
