Fiat 500 Hatchback (2020 - )

The Fiat 500 is getting on a bit now but has been updated with a new 'mild hybrid' engine on all models other than those with the 'Dualogic' automatic gearbox. The new engine is impressively refined and uses a fancier start-stop system to help save a bit of fuel around town but you'll have to wait a while yet for the full electric 500. As it stands the 500 trades heavily on nostalgia and still looks cute but feels somewhat crude compared with newer rivals.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Making hybrids viable in the cost-conscious city car segment is a tough challenge for manufacturers but Fiat has successfully grasped the nettle and breathed fresh life into its long-lived 500 with an electric kick. It isn’t a full hybrid like a Prius, rather it’s small electric motor combined with a new 1.0-litre petrol for a small power boost and more sophisticated start-stop system to save fuel in city driving. It’s broadly equivalent to the outgoing 1.2 for power but Fiat claims CO2 reductions of nearly a fifth and says the small extra cost of the system will repay itself in savings on tax and petrol within the first year of ownership. The purchase price is competitive too, being a few hundred pounds more than a Toyota Aygo but comparable with a VW Up while better on fuel and emissions. Bargain hunters, meanwhile, can seek deals on the remaining stock of the outgoing 1.2 and TwinAir versions.
