What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Iconic styling, easy to drive in town

Against Not the best to dynamics; limited space inside

Verdict A great, stylish city car, but it falls short of rivals

Go for… 1.4 Sport

Avoid… 1.2 Pop

Fiat 500 Hatchback
  • 1. Most buyers will look to the 99bhp 1.4-litre petrol model. It's far from fast, but still manages to feel nippy.
  • 2. The 1.4-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel models also come with stability control as standard, while engine Stop and Start was introduced to all non-Abarth models in early 2010.
  • 3. Want something a bit more nippy, check out the 1.4 T-Jet Abarth with either 133bhp or 157bhp.
  • 4. Despite its solid feel the interiors of some cars have suffered with items of trim falling off and rattles and squeaks appearing.
  • 5. A great city car with plenty of panache, but make sure you don't get carried away and pay over the odds.
