Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is a small three door car, two doors and a hatchback boot, there is room for four adults and light luggage but not for too long a journey. The Fiat 500 is just about the best looking car on the roads today, it’s almost impossible to pass one without raising a smile. If you only have need for a small car then the Fiat 500 will keep you happy come rain or shine. The Fiat 500 is not only fun to drive and great to look at inside and out it is also safe, receiving the NCAP 5 star award (the top award) and award winning, European Car of the Year 2008.

 

The Fiat 500 comes in 3 trim levels, Pop, Pop Star and Lounge. All models have a 5″ Uconnect infotainment system, daytime LED running lights, electric windows and a multifunction steering wheel. The top trim, Lounge, adds a panoramic glass roof, rear parking sensors and a seven inch TFT replacing the traditional dials which provides information driving modes and Uconnect functions, it is worth choosing this trim as the cost difference is minimal.

 

There are two petrol engines available for the Fiat 500, the the much lauded 0.9 litre 105 bhp twin air which is fast and fun, 10 seconds 0-62 and top speed of 117 mph, economy is a claimed 67.3 miles per gallon but it can prove to be a little thirsty when driven hard. The 69bhp 1.2 litre petrol (manual or semi automatic) is a a sprightly little thing with a top speed is 99 miles per hour and 0-62 mph is achieved in a very respectable 12.9 seconds combine this with 65.7 Miles per gallon (combined official) and you have yourself a cracking little city car.
