Fiat 500 Review

The Fiat 500 could be considered the successor to the Volkswagen Beetle and the Mini, given its small yet utilitarian structure that’s accessible at an affordable price. Plus it garnered iconic status from its restyling and relaunching of its predecessors, particularly in how in enhanced the structure’s build and overall desirability. The Fiat 500’s original Nuova 500 model was the first basic version and was only released as another alternative to the scooter vehicle. The Fiat 500 emerges not just as novelty design to a historic vehicle, but also offers a contemporary and improved alternative with its great drive and solid build.

Pros

Anyone who lays eyes on the Fiat 500 will be drawn to its design. Not only have proportions of the original have been retained, but also the iconic design’s expansion from a two-seater and into a more spacious four-seater. Enhancing this unique experience is its water-cooled engine that’s been moved to the front. On the outset, it appears as a successor to the 1957 model but still delivers the present needs of the contemporary markets. Added features include the secondary lights underneath the round headlights. Plus you’re guaranteed safety with its five-star rating from the Euro NCAP crash tests.

If you want to make the most out of your Fiat 500 order, opt for the top-end Lounge trim that includes a fixed glass-roof panel that has the same proportions as the roof hole of the 1957 model. The Abarth trim is what offers a tastier looking rear spoiler, along with big side skirts and bumpers.

The Fiat 500’s interior is just as impressive as the body, treating you to body-coloured sweeps coming across the dash centre. Bakelite-style switch panels border this area, which also give way to the stereo controls and ventilation. Although the colours and fabrics are reminiscent of the 1950s, the quality is definitely from today, promising you a nostalgic experience for the next years. Space isn’t an issue either, as the front and the rear has enough room for everyone. Although the roof curved roof at the rear is meant to reduce the space behind the front seats, intending that area for children. But even at 3.5 metres long, the current four-seater lets you sit low on the back pair of the chairs. Legroom is decent even with its short measurements.

Cons

The engine isn’t as impressive as its physical features. At 99bhp you could forgive the 1.4-litre unit for not being able to deliver as quickly as other engines, but the drive still requires a little extra push and fluster. Although peak power arrives as 6000rpm, you’ll more likely arrive at 3500rpm and just a little 59bhp to play around with. In terms of city driving, the 1.2-litre is not an issue as you can arrive at 62mph much quicker than the 1.4-litre engine.

Power steering has been improved on the Fiat 500, but it doesn’t communicate as well to other parts of the car. Thankfully the 500 makes up for it with an improved “real” feel to the artificial resistance and better steering on City mode.

Fiat 500

                Among the many cars manufactured by the Fiat company, the Fiat 500 is a city car that was produced for 18 years, beginning from 1957 and ending in 1975. The car has successfully produced and sold close to four million units, and a limited number of units were sold until 1977 for the Fiat 500 K estate. It was created as a predecessor of Fiat 500 “Topolino”.

                This city car was designed for the Fiat company by the Italian car designer Dante Giacosa. The 500 was a petite car that is only three meters or approximately ten feet long, and it was launched in July 1957 with the name Nuova (new) 500. The new Fiat 500 was launched in July 4, 2007 for the 50th anniversary of the 500’s launch.

                The images of the new 500 (Type 312) was presented in March 2007 and is also a city car that was manufactured by Fiat and Chrysler (for North American models). This is a three door hatchback with four seats and is designed by Roberto Giolito. It was made available in four trim levels including Naked, Pop, Sport, and Lounge. There are several options for the body colours, decal, wheel options, and interior trims, allowing the buyer to personalize the car and design it according to his own liking. This follows the Fiat Mini platform and is created as a predecessor of Fiat Seicento.
