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.
