The interior layout, fit and finish
You sit fairly high up in the Fiat 500, and certainly higher than in the Honda E and Peugeot e-208. The driver's seat provides enough support in all the important places, but some people might struggle with the lack of reach adjustment on the steering wheel on lower-spec models.
There's not as much space to rest your left foot as there is in the Renault Zoe and you'll need to fork out for the Comfort Seats Pack (or go for range-topping La Prima trim) if you want seat-height adjustment and a central armrest.
The entry-level Action trim simply gets four speakers to play whatever's on your smartphone, once it’s hooked up to a USB port and attached to the cradle on the dashboard.
The optional Radio Pack adds a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system and DAB radio, but you’ll need to upgrade to Red trim for the larger 10.25in screen with navigation and Apple Carplay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring (so you can run phone apps through the screen).
Apart from one or two small icons on the main homepage, the infotainment interface is easy to use and the screen responds quickly when you press it. It's much better than the system in the e-208.
