I think I've been driving a different car to all the reviewers, to whom I give a heartfelt thank you for keeping prices low on this little gem of a car!
Certainly there are better cars on the road and it can be beaten in many areas by many - but, taken as a whole, there is no better fun to be had for the sort of money these cars sell at.
Ignore what the reviews say and get out there and drive one. If you aren't spending a lot of time on motorways then I guarantee you will have a smile on your face. If you try the new Mini you will also emerge with a smile on your face - but the hole in your bank balance will soon wipe that away.
Incidentally, for almost no money at all, you can have almost as much fun in another down-trodden Fiat - the Cinquecento.
The only major problem I've had with either car is the spelling and pronunciation of their names!
I'm 6ft 5in tall and fit the car with ease, I drive it everyday on the M11/M25 to work and it mixes it happily with other motorway traffic. It comes with a CD player, power steering and electric windows as standard on the Sporting - which is all you need.
I think your review misses the purpose of this car. It's meant to be small city car and it does this really well. Where it excels is in the fact that it can carry itself on the motorway.
This is a car that you can chuck about quite happily, that brakes, accelerates and corners well in everyday life and is the perfect size for the one person-per-car commute. Plus you can always find somewhere to park and it's cheap to run.
There are many more exciting and prestigious cars that fit my budget, but this is the most practical car for everyday use.
Excellent car - just a shame about the dealer.
