2010 Fiat Punto Evo Sport
What can a little red dot tell you? If you’re looking at the rear “Punto” badge on a Fiat, it indicates you’re looking at a rather special hatchback. Technology geeks will love this Fiat: the Punto Evo Sport utilizes Fiat’s innovative MultiAir 1.4-liter engine, one of the most revolutionary engines around in any size car, which is able to tweak the intake valve timing for more power and efficiency. Environmental types will find lots to like about the reduced emissions and better fuel economy, but drivers will appreciate the 10 percent horsepower boost over a similarly-sized non-MultiAir engine. Further enhanced with a turbocharger, the name of the game with the Evo SPORT is torque—152 ft-lbs. in a small, lightweight car equals a willing surge at every stab of the throttle. Luckily, all of this technology plays well with Fiat’s typically sharp handling, making it a willing partner for driving adventures in the city or on the track.
