Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 certainly has style and image on its side, but plenty of rivals are better to drive and more practical, for the same price or less.

Trim: Lounge

This is worth considering if you like your creature comforts, because as well as climate control and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, Lounge models also come with a 5.0in touchscreen infotainment system and Bluetooth, a fixed glass sunroof, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, rear parking sensors and fog lights. There are also body-coloured rubbing strips and extra chrome detailing.,

Engine: 1.2

This 68bhp engine offers the cheapest and, in many respects, best route into 500 ownership. It’s a perfect match for the baby Fiat’s cheeky nature because it loves to be revved, and while performance isn’t exactly sparkling, it’s hardly sluggish. Surprisingly, this engine has proved more economical than the smaller, and pricier, Twinair in our real-world tests. A Dualogic semi-automatic gearbox is optional on this engine, but is best avoided.
