Introduction

What Car? says...

If it’s retro charm you’re after, not many new cars come close to the chic Fiat 500. With looks harking back to the Fifties classic of the same name, this reimagining of the 500 (Cinquecento in Italy) turns heads like few other cars in its price bracket.

Confusingly, there are two versions of the Fiat 500 on sale to choose from: the pure-electric version that Fiat is calling the New 500, and the previous-generation, petrol-powered model that’s been rebranded the 500 Hybrid.

Over the next few pages of this Fiat 500 review, we’ll tell you everything you need to know before you decide whether it’s the best electric car for you – including what the performance is like, whether it's good to drive and how much it will cost to run.

Whichever car you decide to buy, head over to the free What Car? New Car Buying service for a great deal on hundreds of makes and models without any awkward haggling. There are plenty of attractive Fiat 500 deals to peruse there.
