Fiat 500 options to choose and avoidImage 1 of 8

Looking for a small electric car to primarily use in the city? The latest Fiat 500 should be at the very top of your shortlist.

Like the 500s that came before it, this latest version has cutesy styling that's sure to turn heads. But it's also friendly to the environment and your wallet, because it's fully electric. It can cover close to 200 miles on a full charge, that's more than rivals can manage, and it can fit into spaces they won't, too. Ultra-light steering makes threading the 500 through tight city streets a doddle, and our recommended Icon trim gives you an upgraded infotainment system, alloy wheels and even keyless entry.

Our full review will tell you more about what the 500 is like to drive and live with, but here we're focussing on which options you should add while still keeping your budget sensible. Read on for our recommendations. You might also like to read our Fiat 500 colour guide that details all the available colour options.
