Fiat's updated 500 is the Italian carmaker's distinctive city car, and it's among the most recognisable vehicles on the road with a retro-inspired design. The 500's design can be altered to reflect your own tastes, and it also delivers where it's needed with energetic performance.
The car's circular front headlamps, short rear overhang and chrome detailing make it stand out on the road, and with 14 exterior paint colours to choose from you can personalise the finish. There are five separate models in the line-up, each with its own personality, design and equipment list. Pop gets a start/stop system as standard to boost economy, while Cult adds leather seats and a seven-inch TFT colour digital display. Lounge arrives with a glass roof and air conditioning, while the S delivers a subtle rear spoiler and 15-inch sports alloy wheels.
Alongside all its striking visual appeal, the 500 also impresses with its thrilling driving dynamic. Four powertrain options enable this, with the 69bhp 1.2-litre petrol joined by revolutionary TwinAir units with 85bhp or 105bhp. They emit as low as 90g/km of CO2, and are as responsive as some much larger engines. There's also a 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel, which pairs with a smooth five-speed manual gearbox.
Attention has also been paid to the model's ability to protect as well as perform, and various intelligent technologies have been included to make motoring safer. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) includes Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and it joins Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with hill holder. Seven airbags offer all-round protection, and all this adds up to a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
