The Fiat 500 doesn't hang around for long on our forecourts! It's been a very popular new car since launch in 2008, and is just as popular as a used car now. The 500 is not only cute and funky, frugal and fun, it also makes great financial sense as it depreciates in value extremely slowly for a small car. Look out for ultra-efficient TwinAir petrol or MultiJet turbodiesel engines in the trim level of your choice. Its 'must have' looks, reliability, character and fuel efficiency, have all helped to ensure its residual values are kept high, which is good news for owners.
Like the new generation Mini and VW Beetle, the Fiat 500 is a retro throwback; a modernisation of the once supremely popular Italian city car which stopped production in 1975.
As with those two other cars, the modernisation is almost as popular as the model on which is it based, mixing a sleek, retro design with low running costs. A car ideal for city driving, it is easy to see why it has proved so popular with drivers of all ages.
The new Fiat 500 was first unveiled on the 50th anniversary of the very first Nuova 500, and has since found considerable popularity among people looking for a funky, frugal city car.
One of its biggest selling points is undoubtedly its design. Retro and quirky, it is part fashion accessory, part car, and is surprisingly faithful to the original 500 it is based on. Contrastingly to the old model however, the new 500 fits a decent amount of space into a very small frame.
Having managed to pack in adequate room for four people, Fiat have managed to find space for a 185 litre boot, which while not being very large, is a decent size for its class. The interior continues the chic design, using a choice of colours to liven the dashboard. Apart from the splash of colour the layout is kept relatively simple, favouring functionality over frivolousness.
Designed for inner city use, the Fiat 500 isn't made with much power in mind. Though, the 1.2 litre model makes for good value for money considering the relative get up and go it does have. With improved power steering and suspension on the later generation models, the 500 offers a comfortable ride which gives just enough excitement for the average city driver.
Fiat 500s hold their value very well, and with low upkeep costs, it is a car which boasts very little outlay in terms of ownership. Run costs are affordable, particularly the TwinAir model, which has CO2 emissions under the 100g/km threshold, making it road tax exempt. Although the TwinAir is said to return around 70mpg, reports have revealed the truth is closer to the high forties, but overall it is an economic car to run.
Like the original back in the 50s, the modern Fiat 500 has found instant success as a stylish city car.
