Fiat Punto 2012: the evolution of a best seller
- “elegance and dynamism” are at the heart of the new Punto stylistic features
- Eco Fun: 0.9 TwinAir 85 HP for new driving pleasure
- 10 engines that meet all needs
- The widest range in its segment
- The Fiat Punto 2012 is already available from the Fiat sales network in Europe, except for the TwinAir version which will become available in the spring.
The Punto 2012 confirms the distinctive aspects that destined the previous editions for success in all the European markets – not only is it constantly the top-selling car in Italy, but nearly 8.5 million vehicles have been produced from 1993 (the year of the first launch) until today – and intensifies the distinguished personality with an important aesthetic update, together with the new exterior colours and the seat upholsteries. Together with the aesthetic update, the two-cylinder 85 HP 875 cc TwinAir turbo engine named “International Engine of the Year 2011” and the evolution of the 85 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2 are making their debuts, making it one of the diesel cars in its segment boasting the best CO2 emissions.
Renewed style in the spirit of “elegance and dynamism”
On the outside, the Punto 2012 model presents a new front distinguished by a bumper entirely painted in the same shade as the body, with the direction indicators positioned alongside the air intake in a single perimeter that surrounds them. The bumper is incorporated and of the same body colour also at the back of the vehicle. In detail, its shape in relief describes a zone that divides the area dedicated to the number plate from that in which the auxiliary functions of the lights are positioned. Inside, brand-new fabrics upholstering the seats and original inserts of the dashboard that emphasise its stylistic elegance are evident. The new style innovations of the Punto 2012 are completed with a new design for the 15” alloy wheels and three new metallic bodywork colours: Glam Rock Blue, Tip Tap Red and Blues Grey. As for the 500 model, the TwinAir name on the Fiat Punto 2012 will indicate not only the two-cylinder engine, but also a new trim level marked by a unique and recognisable look: the availability of a dedicated colour, Energetico Green, and the exclusive glossy black roof, available as an optional.
Eco Drive: 0.9 TwinAir 85 HP for new driving pleasure
Together with the updated look the two-cylinder 85 HP 875 cc TwinAir turbo engine – named “International Engine of the Year 2011” – is making its debut. This is what confirms the model as a perfect balance between eco-friendliness (98 g/km CO2) and driving pleasure (85 HP at 5,500 rpm of power and 145 Nm at 2,000 rpm of torque). With the specific engine control calibration, this engine brings together two different operating modes that can be selected by pressing a button on the dashboard. Normal provides full engine performance to enhance driving liveliness and spirit, while Eco, which limits the torque, reduces fuel consumption to ensure a driving style that is truly eco-friendly and more economical.
Another innovation in the field of engines is the evolution of the 85 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2. By adopting two new technologies, Intelligent Alternator and Intelligent Flow, it achieves the record-breaking level of 90 g/km CO2. These technologies, together with the use of low-viscosity transmission fluid, make the Punto 2012 one of the diesel cars in its segment boasting the best CO2 emissions.
10 engines that meet all needs
The Punto 2012 continues to be a constant point of reference when it comes to engine innovation. They are increasingly lively and thrifty both with petrol (MultiAir and TwinAir) and diesel (MultiJet) supply, combining innovation with eco-friendliness every single time. Evidence of this lies in the methane or LPG engine, in addition to extending the Stop&Start with Gear Shift Indicator technology to all the Euro 5 diesel and petrol engines. This system automatically cuts out the engine and suggests the best gear in order to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 15% for an urban route. This long tradition of records is reinforced today with the Punto MY 2012 following introduction of the new 85 HP TwinAir turbo engine and the evolution of the 85 HP 1.3 MultiJet engine.
The widest range in its segment
The range in Italy comprises three product lines – Comfort, Sport and Fun to Drive – each featuring a different content offer with the aim of satisfying different needs. The first line includes the Pop, Easy and Lounge trim levels, and addresses the traditional customer in a crescendo of comfort and style features. Instead, for a typically male customer looking for a car that looks distinctive and dynamic, the Sport line that includes the Racing and Sport versions has been created. In particular, the Fun to Drive line offers the exclusive TwinAir trim level dedicated to the revolutionary two-cylinder engine. It is characterised aesthetically and internally with glossy black pillars and mirror covers, special alloy wheels, 13 exterior colours, one of which is dedicated, Energetico Green, the exclusive glossy black roof option and special “Sportex” seat fabrics.
Renewed style in the spirit of “elegance and dynamism”
- New front
- New rear
- New interiors
- New bodywork colours
The characteristic value of a distinctly unique architecture for a vehicle which is still the forerunner of its type once again emerges in the design of the Punto 2012. This saloon has a feisty attitude and offers space inside with an unambiguous image of speed and modernity.
Having established itself as an instant classic in a vehicle class that had never existed before, the Punto 2012 confirms Fiat’s tradition of always creating cars in perfect tune with Italian design that are able to give voice to the attitudes and expectations of demanding car owners attentive to performance and total usability of space, and also to represent them with clear-cut, dynamic and recognisable lines.
The Punto 2012 has an updated exterior with front and rear bumpers that are a blend of the strong points of the Grande Punto, launched in 2005, and the Punto Evo, introduced to the market in 2009.
In detail, the front bumper sports new graphics that today enhance the technical and functional zones, such as the two air intakes, now enclosed in a single trapezium-shaped perimeter, and two side appendixes, which contain the direction indicators.
Now the bumper band is integrated with the rest of the bumper and is still the same colour as the body, while the round fog lights with cornering function are located in the lower air intake.
The grille is black and has a hexagonal mesh pattern on all the trim levels. It creates a sharper contrast with the body colour on the rest of the bumper. Higher up, the Fiat logo stands out in the centre of the bumper, while the other exterior details have remained the same as those of the previous Punto generation. The result? A highly refined design which doesn’t sacrifice clean lines.
As for the front, the rear bumper has also been redesigned with the band integrated with the rest of the bumper, and it too is painted the same shade as the bodywork. The rear fog light and reversing light are still arranged beneath it but now have an elongated shape and are integrated with the surrounding surface.
The Fiat logo is on the hatchback and now serves to unlock the doors, and the “Punto” logo is beneath it in the centre, stylised with the ruby red dot, the same colour as the Fiat logo.
The Punto 2012 sports new, fresher and more youthful materials and colours on the inside as well. In particular, different types of fabrics according to the trim levels have been developed for the seats: grey denim with ruby red embroidery for the Pop; Denim Extra with electro-welding in three different shades (grey, blue and red) for the Easy and Racing; and lastly a refined black Castiglio fabric with inserts and surfaces in a hexagonal pattern similar to the design of the front grille cover the anatomical configuration seats of the Lounge and Sport. The black leather upholstery is available as an optional on all the trim levels (except Pop)
The dashboard fascia, soft touch starting from the Easy trim level, is covered with a particular black 3D finish, Diamond, on the Easy and Racing versions, while the covering is made using a distinctive embossing, Stone, that emphasises the perfect blend of elegance and sportiness on the Lounge and Sport versions.
New bodywork colours
Three new metallic bodywork colours complete the list of new Punto 2012 style innovations: Glam Rock Blue, Tip Tap Red and Blues Grey.
Eco Fun: 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir for new driving pleasure
- Fun to Drive: brilliant performance but with low fuel consumption
- Architecture of the new two-cylinder engine
- ECO button to support the driver’s personal driving style
- Acoustic and vibrational comfort
- Special TwinAir trim level
The unprecedented TwinAir, which has won numerous awards in the industry – including “International Engine of the year 2011”, “Best New Engine 2011” and “Best Green Engine 2011” – has now been fitted on the Fiat Group Automobiles top-of-the-range model for segment B.
Fun to Drive
The TwinAir project combines the modern MultiAir technology designed by Fiat Powertrain with the concept of “downsizing” and results in a small, low-weight engine (875 cc) that ensures excellent performance with low fuel consumption. The special engine tuning and its combination with a 6-speed gearbox gives the Punto 2012 TwinAir a perfect balance between eco-friendliness (98 g/km CO2) and driving pleasure (85 HP at 5500 rpm of power and 145 Nm at 2000 rpm of torque).
The cylinder capacity of the two-cylinder engine was selected following meticulous thermo-dynamic calculations aimed at optimising the surface to volume ratio of the combustion chamber in order to limit dissipative heat exchange. The engine is also turbocharged. It has 85 HP and boasts one of the lowest CO2 emissions amongst petrol engines available to date. Note that the selection of the turbocharger size aims at achieving a high drive torque value right from the lowest engine speeds, for maximising the fun behind the wheel. The small-sized turbine combined with dedicated valve management strategies also minimises transient response times and, at the same time, keeps maximum power levels high. In this way, while keeping a very low displacement, the performance offered is approximately 25% higher than that of the Fire. 1.2 8v engine.
If, on the one hand, the MultiAir allows the engine load to be directly controlled through the intake valves while eliminating the pumping work, on the other the geometry of the intake manifolds is
designed to achieve high air-petrol mixture turbulence with partial loads. This feature, combined with suitable management strategies for the valves (Multi-lift, LIVO), maintains high combustion stability even with very low engine loads; therefore, it exploits the injected fuel in the best possible way, reducing polluting emissions.
The ECO button is available. With a specific engine control calibration, it reduces fuel consumption to guarantee truly eco-friendly driving. The Punto TwinAir customer therefore can choose between two driving modes: “normal”, with full engine performance to enhance driving liveliness and spirit, and “eco” for a driving style more attentive to economy. In this first mode, the button is deactivated and the power unit has the maximum available torque (145 Nm), guaranteeing driving pleasure, verve and immediate response for sportier driving. This configuration is recommended for maximum response and fully enjoying all the available torque. When the ECO button is pressed, the delivered torque is decreased to 110 Nm @ 2500 rpm to guarantee minimum consumption and promote a driving style more suitable for town traffic.
Acoustic and vibrational comfort
The TwinAir engine is a little gem also because of the good level of comfort it gives the customer. The team of engineers that followed the acoustic and vibrational development of the new engine tried to characterise the distinctive sound of the two-cylinder and reduce the vibrations typical of two cylinder in line engines as much as possible. These results were achieved by using advanced calculation methodologies that acoustically optimised the single components which make up the engine (such as the double mass flywheel) and led to the development of a balancing countershaft able to minimise vibrations and shaking. Particular attention was also paid to improving the soundproofing of the engine by studying containment solutions to reduce the levels of noise perceived in the passenger compartment and to improve the articulation index.
TwinAir trim level
The exclusive TwinAir trim level was created to underscore the strong and innovative personality of the engine. It is immediately recognisable and its distinguishing marks make a big impact. Many details on the exterior are glossy black, such as the pillars and rear view mirrors for example. The finish of the exclusive 15″ alloy wheels is elegant and sporty at the same time, with its glossy black treatment and diamond finish that makes it recognisable at a glance. The burnished headlights and logo on the tailgate complete its personality.
An exclusive colour, Energetico Green, has also been dedicated to this trim level. It joins the 12 shades of the Punto 2012 range, all combined with the exclusive glossy black roof option. Inside, the seat upholstery is grey “Sportex” fabric with the “twinair” logo embroidered on the front headrests. The soft touch dashboard fascia is covered with the black Diamond finish.

10 engines that meet all needs
- MultiAir technology
- Second-generation MultiJet
- Bi-fuel systems
- Technologies for sustainable mobility
The technological excellence of the Fiat Punto 2012 is first of all found in the extensive and diverse range of engines that can be fuelled by petrol, petrol/LPG, petrol/methane or diesel. The optimal balance between performance, driving pleasure and fuel consumption is a common feature of all the engines.
The engines are matched with five- or six-speed mechanical or robotised sequential (Dualogic) gearboxes that have been optimised for excellent manoeuvrability and very low noise levels.
The following engines are available at launch:
- 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo E5 Start&Stop
- 69 HP 1.2 8v E5 (with and without Start&Stop)
- 69 HP 1.2 8v E5 Start&Stop (long ratios)
- 77 HP 1.4 8v E5 Start&Stop (mechanical or Dualogic gearbox)
- 105 HP 1.4 MultiAir 16v E5 Start&Stop
- 135 HP 1.4 MultiAir Turbo 16v E5 Start&Stop
- 75 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2 16v E5 (with and without Start&Stop)
- 85 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2 16v E5 Start&Stop
- 95 HP 1.3 MultiJet 2 16v E5 Start&Stop
- 70 HP 1.4 8v petrol-methane E5
- 77 HP 1.4 8v petrol-LPG E5
The 1.4 MultiAir available with two different power levels, 105 HP and 135 HP, is confirmed on the Fiat Punto 2012. The engine represents a real point of departure from the current petrol engine scene. Compared with a traditional petrol engine with the same cubic capacity, the MultiAir engines provide a significant increase in power and torque, as well as much lower fuel consumption and emissions.
At the heart of the MultiAir is a new electrohydraulic valve management system that enables reduced fuel consumption (by controlling air directly via the engine intake valves, without using the throttle) and harmful emissions (via combustion control), as well as improved performance. As befits a flag-bearer for the downsizing concept, MultiAir is a versatile technology that is easily applied to all petrol engines and may potentially be developed for diesel engines.
The 135 HP 1.4 MultiAir Turbo guarantees the Fiat Punto 2012 all the performance and temperament of a sporty, well-balanced car designed for customers who want good driveability and fuel economy. Thanks to the turbocharger, the torque delivery of the 135 HP engine is optimum under all conditions and ensures outstanding acceleration and great response at all revs, setting a new benchmark for petrol engines. The new 135 HP engine’s top speed and time to accelerate from 0-100 km/h puts it at the top of the mini category: 200 km/h (205 for the Sport version) and just 8.5 seconds. Excellent performance is combined with respect for the environment (Euro 5 type-approval) and good fuel economy. This excellence is reflected in particularly low CO2 emissions, equal to 129 g/km, with a combined fuel consumption of just 5.6 litres every 100 km.
Balance and temperament are also attributes of the 105 HP 1.4 MultiAir power unit. This engine is located in the middle of its reference market, where it represents the best choice. The 105 HP MultiAir also complies with Euro 5 standards and records 133 g/km of CO2 (combined fuel consumption is just 5.7 litres every 100 km). Performance is excellent: from 0-100 km/h in 10.8 seconds and top speed of 185 km/h.
All this tells you that MultiAir has all the necessary attributes to be as revolutionary in the field of petrol engines as JTD and MultiJet were in their day for diesel engines. Fiat’s long tradition in engines continues.
The Fiat Punto 2012 can be fitted with the 1.3 MultiJet 2 turbodiesel engine with three different power levels (75 HP, 85 HP, 95 HP).
What’s brand new in the diesel engine range is the introduction of the 85 HP 1.3 16V MultiJet 2 (with a torque of 200 Nm at 1500 rpm). Already today at the cutting edge thanks to the IRS (Injection Rate Shaping) technology of the MultiJet II and to the special eco turbo-matching of the turbocharger assembly, it takes a further step forward with the introduction of two new technologies (Intelligent Alternator and Intelligent Flow) that let it reach the level of 90 g/km of CO2 emissions. The first technology optimises the battery recharging strategy during the “engine cut-off” phases, while the second is obtained through an oil pump with variable displacement and optimisation of the cooling circuit. These technologies, together with the use of low-viscosity transmission fluid, make the Punto one of the diesel cars in its segment boasting the best CO2 emissions.
The 1.3 MultiJet 2 is available with 75, 85 or 95 HP, and all versions are equipped with the particulate filter and Start&Stop system. In addition, turbocharging is carried out either by a fixed geometry turbocharger (75 HP) or a variable geometry turbocharger (85 and 95 HP). The engines have next-generation turbochargers that, combined with the new second-generation MultiJet injection system, ensure the best possible turbo function at any engine operating level, with torque delivery at low revs up to 25 per cent higher than the previous generation. The second-generation MultiJets are therefore the latest development in the Common Rail injection system which, after the JTD (1997) and MultiJet (2003) engines, gives the Fiat Group yet another first in this field.
A peculiar feature of the Euro 5 versions is the adoption of a new MultiJet Common Rail injection system that, thanks to a balanced hydraulic servo-valve, controls the quantity of diesel injected in the combustion chamber with great precision, with an injection sequence which is faster and more flexible than in the past. By reducing the amount of time between injections, these injectors optimise fuel introduction to the chamber and therefore make the diesel combustion process more gradual, with positive effects for consumption, emissions, NVH and handling. In fact, the new common rail injector on the Euro 5 engines cuts consumption and CO2 on the type-approval cycle by around 2%, while at the same time reducing harmful emissions.
The two bi-fuel systems (petrol/methane and petrol/LPG), which unquestionably give the new Punto 2012 the most complete and eco-friendly engine range in the segment, are further proof of Fiat’s commitment to protecting the environment. What’s more, Fiat is the undisputed global leader in the segment of original dual-fuel petrol/methane cars (OEM) and, more recently, of dual-fuel petrol/LPG cars.
The two ‘green’ versions have a 1.4 8v Fire Evo II engine with 77 specific HP (for example, the Natural Power delivers 70 HP when operating on methane) designed specifically to integrate fully with the two fuel supply systems.
The Punto 2012 Natural Power fitted with the methane fuel supply system guarantees low CO2 emissions (just 115 g/km), excellent handling and good performance. Its top speed is 156 km/h, whereas it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 16.9 seconds. The same is true with the Punto 2012 EasyPower (LPG/petrol) that meets the specific demand of this market’s growth. It ensures low CO2 emissions (114 g/km) and fuel consumption (7.0 l/100 km in the combined cycle).
Technologies for sustainable mobility
In addition to being a constant point of reference in terms of engineering innovation, resulting in increasingly lively and thriftier engines, the new Fiat Punto 2012 reaffirms those values that have always distinguished the model: the dynamism and elegance of its lines, a perfect synthesis of Italian style and the technological innovation that since its launch has been a winning feature of the car. The model counts among its records that of being the first car of its segment equipped with an advanced infotainment system (Blue&Me) or useful instruments for the customer so he can analyse his driving style in real time (eco:Drive info) and receive tips on how he can reduce environmental impact and optimising fuel consumption.
All Fiat Punto 2012 innovations form an integral part of “Air Technologies”, the new brand that contains all the low impact technologies able to combine respect for the environment with driving pleasure, and expresses the attitude with which Fiat calls people to experience their cars: with optimism, fun, economy and respect. From alternative fuel systems, gearbox and traction management systems, Start&Stop, Gear Shift Indicator, technical solutions designed to improve vehicle dynamic efficiency and the exclusive eco:Drive software that allows drivers to check and correct their driving behaviour with the aim of reducing emissions and saving fuel: these are the thematic areas of “Air Technologies” that translates the Fiat philosophy of converting the needs of the people into concrete solutions immediately available today for all.
