Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Fiat 500 hatchback?

The Mini hatchback is certainly the Fiat 500’s arch rival, but that’s for good reasons. The Mini drives with alacrity, has a well-made interior and offers an excellent infotainment system, even if that is part of an optional package. It will cost more than the 500, though.

The Ford Ka uses the same underpinnings as the 500, but it's nowhere near as desirable or as stylish. This will be reflected in the price, however.

Overview

The Fiat 500 is a stylish city car, but it falls short in terms of space and the driving experience

  • Iconic styling
  • Nimble in traffic
  • Not the best dynamics
  • Limited space inside
  • Jittery ride
