Fiat 500C

The Fiat 500C is a desirable car that many will enjoy. However, it is difficult to get comfortable in and generally outclassed by the more grown-up Mini.

Trim: Lounge

This adds lots of chrome styling extras, the touchscreen system (albeit you still have to pay a bit extra to add nav), rear-parking sensors and a height adjustable driver’s seat. It’s quite expensive, though, and you still can’t add auto lights and wipers or cruise control, as some might expect.

Engine: 0.9 TwinAir

This two-cylinder engine is fun to rev hard, but it’s also noisy and sends a lot of vibration through the steering wheel and pedals. On top of that, it’s nowhere near as economical as its optimistic claimed government figure, and it commands a fair premium over the 1.2, so it’s best avoided.
