Which used Fiat 500 hatchback should I buy?

Specification

There have been a huge number of special editions released over the years to entice buyers, but we'll stick with the standard range.  Pop is sparsely equipped, so we'd suggest finding a Lounge model for the additional goodies this version provides. 

Engine

While the 1.2-litre engine is quite slow compared with the other units in the range, it offers excellent fuel economy and is cheap to tax. Owners of 0.9-litre Twinair cars have found it difficult to get anywhere near the claimed fuel economy figures and end up using a similar amount of fuel to the 1.2 anyway.

The 1.3-litre diesel is great for those who regularly drive on the motorway, but its refinement deficit over the 1.2-litre petrol makes it hard to justify.
