About Fiat Punto Mark l ll lll Engine

Punto Mark I Entry level (1993-1999) Entry-level in the Punto range were the 1.1 and 1.2 L petrol engines and the 1.7 diesel engine. The 1.2 engine’s actual capacity is 1.242 litres, available in 3 versions. The first, was fitted in the Punto ELX 75 and produced 75 hp (56 kW) at 6000 rpm while the second, fitted to Punto ELX 85 produced 86 hp (64 kW) at 6000 rpm. The third was a 60 hp (45 kW) engine which eventually replaced the 1.1 54 hp engine.

Mark I Sporting versions

A 1.6 Sporting was also available producing 88 bhp (replaced in 1997 by the more economic 16 valve 1.2 unit), but the best performing version was the 136 PS (100 kW; 134 hp) 1.4 GT using an evolution of the turbocharged 128 SOHC engine originally found in the Fiat Uno Turbo Mark II- capable of running over 200 km/h (120 mph) and reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.9 seconds. This car was also fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox, with different gear ratios than the ELX series. During the years the GT was made in three different “series” with power 136 PS (100 kW; 134 hp) (1993–1995),133 PS (98 kW; 131 hp) (1995–1997) and 130 PS (96 kW; 130 hp) (1997–1999).

Mark I Convertible

A cabriolet (convertible) version was also available; built by Bertone (rather than at the main Fiat factory), it featured an electric powered fully-retracting roof and was one of the cheapest open-top cars in the world at the time. Available in both ELX and SX trim, initially powered by the 90Bhp 1.6 Mpi unit (replaced in 1997 by the 86Bhp 1.2 16v FIRE unit). 55,000 cars were built between 1994–2000.

Other versions

Particular versions of the Mark I Punto were the Punto 6Speed, a 1.1 FIRE Punto 55 with a 6-speed gearbox, the Punto Selecta with a CVT-type automatic gearbox, and the Punto ED (Economical Drive), a 1.1 Punto whose 5-speed gearbox was designed for high fuel efficiency.

Low prices and insurance-friendly engines attract young buyers to the original Punto. Launched in 1994, it had a fully galvanised body, so rust shouldn’t be the issue it is on older Fiats. Economical 1.1-litre and 1.2-litre petrol models were badged 55 or 60, which relates to their power outputs. Both are sparky, but the 16-valve, 86bhp 1.2-litre Sporting is our pick, with the looks and pace of a junior hot hatch – and group four insurance. The hot 1.4 GT Turbo has 135bhp and group 14 insurance, but is hard to find.

Punto Mark II Entry level (1999-2003)

The 1.1 and 1.4 turbo engines were discontinued due to emissions issues, and the entry-level models had only a 1.2 petrol unit (with either 8 or 16 valves, giving 60 and 80 hp (60 kW) respectively) or a 1.9 diesel (with or without common-rail injection).

Mark II Sporting versions

Two sporty versions were offered. The 1.2 16V model also has a CVT-equipped variant (with a sequential manual shift mode consisting of 6 gears, 7 for the Sporting model). The 1.8 HGT accelerates 0-60 in 8.0 seconds. It was considered a big improvement in handling over the Mark 1 GT.

Mark II Power steering

The Mark two Fiat Punto has also adopted Dual drive electric power steering and comes with two operation modes, using an electric motor, rather than a hydraulic pump driven by the engine. This results in reduced fuel consumption and less environmental impact. It has a fuel economy of 31.7 mpg-imp (8.91 L/100 km; 26.4 mpg) – urban and 58.4 mpg-imp (4.84 L/100 km; 48.6 mpg) – extra urban for the 1.7 diesel. The 1.8 petrol does 31.7 mpg-imp (8.91 L/100 km; 26.4 mpg-US) – urban and 48.7 mpg-imp, extra urban.

Behind the nose of this dramatic Punto was a new range of engines. Buyers could choose from 1.9-litre JTD common-rail diesels or the 130bhp 1.8 petrol with the HGT. Most plentiful second-hand are the two frugal 1.2-litre petrol; the 16-valve 80bhp commands £200 more than the eight-valve 60bhp model.

Mark II Facelift (2003-2005)

Engine changes included a new 1.4 16v engine, alongside the staple 1.2 & 1.2 16v variants, and the introduction of two HGT versions, 1.9 L Multi jet diesel, and 1.8 L 16v petrol engine which could reach almost 130 mph (210 km/h) continued over from the Mark 2. There was an introduction also of the 1.3 L common rail diesel MultiJet engine.

Mark lll facelift Punto Evo (2009-present)

The Punto Evo uses the highly regarded 1.4-litre Multi Air engine, but here tweaked up to 161bhp and 184lb ft thanks to a larger turbo, yielding a 0-62mph time of 7.9 seconds.

The Multi Air unit also offers start-stop tech, allowing it to return 47mpg on the combined cycle.
