If you lived with the impression that Romanians are among the craziest drivers on the European roads, this means that you did not drove through the northern Italy.
I say this because, one of the Italians favorite things is to stick to the bottom of your car, then they overtake you, evidently without the slightest intention of signaling. Another anger is to wander the narrow streets with high speeds and winding among green hills and no visibility roads that barely fit two cars side by side. In this context we tested the new Fiat Punto 2012, a car fitted with an engine of 0.9 liter and two-cylinders. Before you burst out laughing, I would like to mention that the car was awarded International Engine of the Year 2011 and the Best New Engine 2011 and the Best Green Engine 2011. The secret? It is a two cylinder 85 hp engine TwinAir and turbine technology. Yes, you read right. And if you wonder how does a turbine with 2 cylinders work, I say the answer is surprising. How to behave Punto 2012 with this engine? Find out below. Let’s start with the elements of design but because we talk about a facelift (and about another name, because from now on, we will talk about Fiat Punto 2012, not including Romania, Fiat is giving the other appellations). Punto has been updated with a few touches for the exterior and received the best interior textiles, which now takes about some seats that are much more comfortable than the ones that we remembered onto the Grande Punto.
