The Fiat 500 first appeared in 2007 and apart from a few minor updates has remained unchanged. I’ve heard some affectionately call its style retro. Despite its design being over a decade old the 500 still conveys an image of fun. This image is why the Fiat 500 earns so much affection from people.
While the exterior may still be classic the interior dashboard has been revamped with better quality materials to improve on the tiny feel of previous models. The 500 has three engine models to choose from a 1.2 litre 69bhp engine or a 0.9 litre engine with either 85 bhp or 105 bhp. A 5 inch Uconnect infotainment system with Aux and USB connections and six speakers adorns the interior. Other incredible features include a panoramic sunroof, rear parking sensors and a fine leather trimmed steering wheel.
A really striking benefit of the 500 is that the insurance costs are low, that’ll be music to the ears of all first-time car buyers. Running costs are also low and newer models have improved reliability and quality than previous models. The plastics are far superior in the newer models as well which has led to marked improvements in performance.
The Fiat 500 remains one of the most popular small cars out there and it’s easy to see why. It has a charming aesthetic and many people have fallen in love with this model.
