Review

The Fiat 500C has a desirable image and is easy enough to drive around town. However, it is difficult to get comfortable in and generally outclassed in all areas by the more grown-up, more expensive Mini Convertible.

get the best price

This entry-level petrol is our favourite engine. It’s no firecracker, but it’s nippy enough around town and is quite fun to work hard when you want to. You’ll be needing to change down through the five-speed manual gearbox quite regularly, but generally this engine is the more refined of the petrol options, and does an adequate job in the 500. An automatic gearbox is available, but we haven’t tried it yet. This is the only engine you can have with entry-level Pop trim.
