Virtually nobody buys them in Europe. Mostly because they're absurdly ugly.

>Fiesta
The Punto is objectively better.

Only Punto I've had any contact with whatsoever was a 2012 1.2, and I didn't drive it myself. Thing was apparently gutless as shit, though perhaps that's true of all NA 1.2s, and the brakes were way harsher than they needed to be. Person I was looking with was quuck to disregard it.

Interior was nice, though.
>>
>>14216689
Yeah, it's a 1.2 8v.
Nowadays you'd want either the 0.9 twinair or the 1.3 multijet.
Shame they don't sell the 1.4 16v anymore.

I wish they came to the US, same with the Audi A1, BMW 1-Series, and the VW Polo.

Lel the 1.3 multijet diesel is a piece of crap. Very unreliable, just like the multiair one that can't into more than 40k kms

>mfw I luv fiat
>mfw fiat can't into "new" technology like common rail diesel injection ( Lel tech is like 30 years old) and direct injection with vvt

>multijets with more than 300k with just regular maintenance
Pls shut up.
Multijet blocks are the most reliable in their segment.

Have no idea about the multiairs, but what you said is retarded and you should feel bad.

the honda fit has been replaced 3 times during the punto's lifespan

>the honda fit has been replaced 3 times
I know man, and it still manages to be ugly.
>>
>>14217225
that shows that the Punto doesn't need to be refined all the time because it is pretty good, while the FIAT always has to get overworked because Honda a shit
>>
>>14216511
Best one us Toyota yaris. Gets over
>>
>>14218594
Or it doesn't sell well enough to warrant replacing and fiat instead makes fatter and fatter versions of the 500
>>
>>14218774
kek well if you would be up to date you'd see that the Punto will get a new version in 2017
>>
>>14217127
you seem to be an idiot. fiat developed common rail tech together with magneti marelli but had to sell it to bosch because they needed the money. their diesel engines are the best money can buy.

I only see pensioners in Honda Jazzes

>>14217225
It's still pretty much exactly the same. They just tweak the lights and bumpers and add or remove minor features.
>>
>>14217127
>40k kms
my 1.4MA Dart is over that with no issues, though I can't say I've taken it apart and thoroughly inspected it. I've seen a lot of >multair is shit< posts recently, and as an owner of one I really have to disagree. You can even pull a fuse to disable MA and the car doesn't give a shit.

I also go a bit overboard with maintenance which is probably the reason my car hasn't blown up yet.

Is that why I called it a Honda Jazz instead of a Fit? Fucking idiot.

But punto is kinda shit within it's own brand.
Why would i want a punto when bravo exists?

>>14218824
fiat diesel engines are fucking woeful, go drive something not shit back to back and you'll see

>>14218976
The bravo doesn't exist anymore in Europe. Only south America gets the new one. It's getting replaced by the Tipo 5 door hatchback.

>dumbass speaking out of his ass

You can easily give 999 arguments against fiat, but their diesel engines is not one of them.
