Available with either three-door or five-door body styles, the 2013 Fiat Punto can be ordered in four main trim levels - Pop, Easy, GBT, and Sporting, which means that the Lounge and TwinAir versions have been retired.

The GBT also comes with bigger 16-inch seven-spoke Sportline alloys.

As for the new Sporting trim, Fiat says it has “a dramatic appearance” that makes it “instantly recognizable and likely to appeal to a younger audience”.

Inside, the Sportlng has received a “Tarmac finish” dashboard, black interior roof lining, sports leather steering wheel, and leather gear knob and handbrake lever.
