Fiat Grande Punto Abarth: the lowdown

Fiat is finally resurrecting the sporty Abarth badge for a Grande Punto hot hatch, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this week – and aimed squarely at beefed-up supermini rivals such as the Fiesta ST and Skoda Fabia vRS. Discreet, it ain’t. The new model is coated with chunky Abarth badges and bright-red, go-faster stripes, all bearing the name or trademark scorpion logo of the historic brand.

It certainly does. It has sharper lines than the already handsome Grande Punto and a gaping grille clad with mesh. The nine-spoke, 17-inch alloys suit the design and house luminous-red Brembo callipers. The rear design is smooth and clean, so long as you can live with the slightly boy-racer darkened rear light clusters.
