Fiat 500 - At a glance car review


Make: Fiat

Model: 500


The king of retro design success, the cutesy 500 has achieved huge sales primarily off the back of its stylish looks. The range is made up of three-door hatchback and a convertible model that features a canvas roof that slides back like a large sunroof, the 500 had a 2015 revision that improved interior quality and tech and slightly tweaked the styling.

CCT positive:

Unmistakably stylish looks, good range of efficient petrol engines

CCT negative:

Ride quality and some interior quality aren’t the best

Main rivals:

Citroen C1, Peugeot 108, Hyundai i10, VW Up

Interesting alternatives:

Ford Ka+, Seat Mii, Kia Picanto

CCT says:

One of the most characterful and recognizable cars on sale, increased volumes and recognition haven’t diminished the 500’s charm. It’s not the most refined or comfortable car for long distances, but brings a smile like very little else.
