Retro motoring is back in a big way, and following on from Volkswagen with the Beetle and BMW with the Mini, comes the Fiat 500.
It’s a cutesy city runabout which harks back to the characterful Cinquecento of the 60s. Solidly built and great to drive the 500 epitomises fun motoring.
With over half a million different ways of specifying the car, its easy to personalise. Power comes in three forms, an eco-friendly 1.2 Twinair, a 1.3 litre diesel or a 1.4 litre petrol, but if its excitement you're after the turbocharged Abarth version would be the one to go for.
Inside, much of the retro styling from the outside has been carried through, and its very neatly laid out, albeit with slightly cheaper plastics than you might find in retro rivals.
