The Fiat Punto is a supermini produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat, starting in 1993. Internally codenamed Project 176, the Punto was announced in September 1993 and launched in late 1993, as a replacement for the ageing Fiat Uno. The Fiat Punto was voted European Car of the Year for 1995. The Punto's distinctive clean-cut styling by Giorgetto Giugiaro was an instant hit (though one of the car's most recognisable features, the vertical tail/rear lights, were not part of Giugiaro's original design and were in fact added later in-house at Fiat's factory).
