Fiat Abarth Punto Evo: facelift for the sports Punto

S atte The Fiat Punto Evo now delivers eight hp more -Top version. This is made possible by a larger Garrett turbocharger. In sport mode, the four-valve engine has a torque of 250 Nm (previously 230) and should accelerate the Punto from a standing start to 100 km /h in 7.9 instead of 8.2 seconds.

It only goes ahead in the middle speed range

The top speed increases from 206 to 213 km /h. Unlike the 140 hp engine in the 500 C, the 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Punto Evo Abarth seems a bit tougher, only fulfills the propulsion expectation in the middle range, which is why it is not worthwhile to hold on to the six-speed Manual transmission service.

Even when turning, the Abarth Punto Evo is not as jagged in the driving report as the sporty exterior suggests, and even feels spongy in alternating curves. On the other hand, it was not possible to check whether the suspension behavior was good during the first ride on the flat test track in Balocco in northern Italy - but the quality of the interior could.

After the facelift, the dashboard looks more valuable. In the Fiat Punto Evo Abarth, a yellow border adorns the instruments and yellow-red seams on the sports seats and the shift bag. At least here, the Sport-Punto should meet expectations.
