Lots of space and very practical for daily use, Getting to big I feel tho as most in that sector have, No rubbing strips which is a bummer for a city car.

We have had a load of Puntos, Build quality/reliability is still iffy as is the dealerships ability to rectify known faults .

But if you get a good one they serve you well, Also very competitively priced and huge discounts available which has an influence on their popularity
