New Punto Van makes its UK debut at CV Show 2012

Fiat Professional’s New Punto Van 2012 will make its UK debut at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham’s NEC (April 24-26, 2012).

The New Punto Van replaces the Grande Punto Van in the Fiat Professional line-up and brings a wealth of
improvements over its predecessor, providing customers with a strong proposition in the car-derived van market, with a load capacity of 1.0 m3 and a payload of 520 kg.

New Punto Van 2012 features external styling changes with fully colour-coded front and rear bumpers for a more sophisticated look. The new model combines the successful style of both the Grande Punto and Punto Evo passenger cars, so the interior features new sportier seat fabrics and on the SX version there is a new dashboard with soft touch materials and an elegant design.

Standard equipment on all versions includes ESP (Electronic Stability Programme), BAS (Brake Assistance System), remote central locking, electric front windows, electrically adjustable and heated body coloured mirrors, trip computer, driver and passenger airbags, radio/CD/MP3 player, electric power steering, height and reach-adjustable steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver’s seat.

New Punto Van will be available with one diesel engine, the award-winning and best-selling 1.3 MultiJet II diesel, in three levels of power:
> 75 hp (55 kw)/190 nm max torque (at 1,500 rpm)
67.2 mpg (4.2 l/100 km) combined fuel consumption and 112 g/km CO2 emissions
> 85 hp (62 kw)/200 nm max torque (at 1,500 rpm) with start&stop
80.7 mpg (3.5 l/100 km) combined fuel consumption and 90 g/km CO2 emissions
> 95 hp (70 kw)/200 nm max torque (at 1,500 rpm) with start&stop
67.2 mpg (4.2 l/100 km) combined fuel consumption and 110 g/km CO2 emissions

Start&stop is standard equipment on the 1.3 MultiJet II 85 hp and 95 hp versions.

The new range starts with the entry level 1.3 MultiJet II 75 hp version at £10,990.00 (exc. VAT and OTR),  providing great value for those customers searching for an affordable price but with all the safety and comfort features included (ESP, airbags, electric windows and mirrors, radio/CD/MP3 player).

For an additional £500, the 1.3 MultiJet II 85 hp version is available, with 10 hp more and start&stop, having a combined fuel consumption of 80.7 mpg and CO2 emissions of 90 g/km.

The SX trim level is available in combination with the 1.3 MultiJet II 95 hp, adding a further £500 to the 85 hp version but providing 10 hp more, manual air conditioning and a driver’s knee airbag.

It will be available in three pastel colours - white, dark blue and red.

The New Punto Van balances head-turning style, fuel economy, and elegance with load-bearing practicality, and will become available to order from the end of April.
