What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The little Seicento looks good and its spirited engine makes it fairly nippy in town

Against It's cramped, runs out of puff and safety equipment is conspicuous by its absence

Verdict It's not too bad in town, but the Seicento is blessed with very little versatility

Go for… 1.1 Sporting

Avoid… 899cc cars/Automatics

Fiat Seicento Hatchback
  • 1. The car's electrics are its weakest point, with a wide range of glitches. Check all the switches work properly
  • 2. The Seicento is seriously short of interior space
  • 3. If you're looking at a high-mileage car, check the engine and gearbox particularly carefully
  • 4. The suspension can a problem, so check it for thumps and clunks on a road test
  • 5. Be certain that any necessary recall work to the brake pedal and brake pipes has been done
