FIAT 500 car reviews


Fiat 500L hatchback

Fiat 500L 1.6 Multijet (s/s) Pop Star MPW Hatchback 5dr Diesel Manual (117 g/km, 105 bhp) Hatchback (2013 - ) expert review

The Fiat 500L has distinctive looks and generous equipment on its side, and it’s good to drive, too. It’s also one of the most practical small MPVs, which is surely one of the most important things. Bear in mind, though, that it’s quite expensive compared with many rivals.

Abarth 500 hatchback

Fiat 500 Abarth 1.4 Abarth Hatchback 3dr Petrol Manual (155 g/km, 135 bhp) Hatchback (2008 - ) expert review

The Abarth 500 is one of the most stylish hot hatchbacks around, offering plenty of punch and sharp handling. It's more exclusive than the Fiat 500, but it's also pricier and has a much firmer ride.

Abarth 500C convertible

Fiat 500C Abarth 1.4 Abarth Convertible 2dr Petrol Manual (151 g/km, 140 bhp) Convertible (2009 - ) expert review

The Abarth 500C convertible is a hoot to drive at any speed. It can’t match the MINI Cooper S Convertible for performance, but it’s much cheaper and packs a stronger visual punch.

Fiat 500 TwinAir hatchback (2010 – ) first UK drive

Fiat has long been at the forefront of engine innovation. The Italian manufacturer introduced the world’s first direct-injection diesel engine in 1987, the first common-rail engine in 1997 and the concept of downsizing via its award winning Multijet engines. It’s now gone a step further with the Fiat 500 Twin Air – an exercise in extreme downsizing, it takes a 0.9-litre two-cylinder engine and creates the world’s most efficient and least polluting mass-produced petrol engine.
