Review - Fiat 500

An iconic car and instantly recognisable. The Fiat 500 is a hatch not to be underestimated. Here’s our review of arguably the chicest city car on the roads…

On and off the market since the late 1950s and packed with character and charm, what makes the Fiat 500 such a great small city car?

Let’s start with the drive. Surprisingly punchy and quick off the mark, for a small car this motor doesn’t mess around. You would be forgiven for underestimating this small but mighty car, but you will no doubt be impressed when you get behind the wheel.

The interior is as clean as it is quirky. Minimalistic in style but with touches of colour to match the exterior paintwork, this feels very much chic as opposed to cheap.

Cheap to buy, cheap to run and cheap to insure. The Fiat 500 is the ideal city car, first car or everyday car for those style conscious drivers. In a world where so many cars look the same as the next, the Fiat 500 offers similar excitement to that of the MINI and VW Beetle, with a much smaller and less daunting price tag.

Putting the Abarth model to one side, you have a choice of three engines, with the largest only being 1.2 litres. Compact and modest on paper, but fun and feisty on the road. You’ll be spoilt for choice when you come face to face with the many models available; four trims and numerous special editions mean that you will be sure to find a Fiat 500 that suits your requirements. By requirements we mean bright colours and an exciting infotainment system!

In summary, the Fiat 500 is seemingly a timeless classic and perfect for those looking for a car that looks and feels like an adventure. If you’re looking for a used Fiat 500 in Kent, get in touch with us at Kent Car Buyer.
