What used Fiat Seicento hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Fiat Seicento hatchback?

It was a cheap car to start with, and prices are rock bottom now that it's older. You can pick one up for significantly less than you'll pay for many other city cars.

If you can stand having such little power, the 899cc car will return an average of 46.3mpg. Don't bother, though, because the 1.1 isn't far off the mark with an average of 45.5mpg. The smaller engine will pay dividends on insurance, however, as it has a group 1 classification. The 1.1 sits in group 3. For young drivers, that's enough of a difference to make a case for the 899cc unit, provided they only use it in town. The only bad news as far as running costs are concerned are that servicing costs are expensive for a city car. Although hourly labour charges aren't outrageous at Fiat dealers, some parts are pricey and can be hard to come by.
