With its retro looks, the Fiat 500 is without doubt the most important model that Fiat has ever launched.
Using the strengths of the original 1950’s version, the modern Fiat 500 is introducing the UK market to the very essence of Italian driving.
If you’re a potential buyer, there’s probably one reason above all others that the 500 is on your list – and that’s its design. Inspired by its predecessor, this model oozes charm from every angle. It’s no surprise it’s becoming one of the new millennium’s must have items.
The 500 matches its cheeky curves to beautiful detailing with chrome door handles that feel great to touch and big, bold Fiat badges at the front and rear. Inside is also just as much of a feast for the eye. There’s a cool circular speedometer and rev counter, which both feature sporty red needles, while the classy dashboard trim is contrasted by a bright splash of body-coloured metal that stretches across the facia. With a chunky gear-knob and large simple buttons for the radio and ventilation systems, the 500 has a good looking but functional cabin.
For power, Fiat has offered three engine sizes, including a 1.2 and 1.4-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel. With only a tiny degree of coarseness under acceleration, it’s a remarkably smooth, refined and torquey unit. Economy is also amazing at 67.3mpg combined while CO2 emissions are super low at 111g/km.
Overall, the 500 is a lot of fun – it’s agile, generates impressive grip, and best of all it offers exceptional value for money. As a package it offers real style and a great deal of personalisation, you rarely find two the same.
