Fiat 500 1.2

Community images

  • Fiat 500 1.2
  • Our own car - the big wheels and dark rear windows are options, as are the side rubbing strips, chrome capped mirrors and Italian flags.
  • The front fog lights are options too.
  • Whilst the sihuette may ape the original 1957 Fiat 500, this is an altogether larger car - tiny by 2015 standards though.
  • **Please note: The photo isn't of my car as I'm 200 miles away from it at the moment, but it looks just like this but without the white stripes. ***

ConsAGAINST: Expensive. Fuel Economy

WHAT IS IT? The Fiat 500 is the Italian makers’ ever-popular retro-design city car. Based on the previous model five-door, utilitarian Fiat Panda, this incarnation of the 500 is currently in its final year of production. Sadly, from a conversation with our local Fiat dealer, its replacement will...

I have had my Fiat 500 1.2 Pop since March 2011 and I am in love. I never thought it would be possible to be in love with a car, but seriously, if I could marry this picture of perfection, I most certainly would. Prior to this I had VW Beetle 2.0 - which I equally loved, but after 10 years of...

“A bit like a mini-beetle?”

published 12/02/2004

ProFun, Inexpensive, head-turning

ConsSlow, Noisy, Hard to find in UK

I bought my 1972 Fiat 500 two years ago for £425. It was advertised as a non-running project, but the car was right hand drive and 100% original, which makes it quite rare as a large number of left hand drive models have been imported from Italy over the years. If you are still wondering what on...

“Gorgeous wee car”

published 13/06/2013

ProGood looks, handles well, turns heads, fun car

ConsSlightly sluggish on steep hills

I remember about 5 years ago, I used to see a cute wee car every morning, it was small, white and very retro looking. I immediately fell in love, and needed to find out more information about this. I found with a bit of searching online that it was a Fiat 500, the rejuvenated model of the the old...

The new Fiat 500, in my opinion is the best small car out there. Its small, sassy, economical, and a delight to drive. We purchased this car last year, and have been absolutely delighted with it. While it seems all the other car makers were going for economy and size, Fiat did this with the 500...

I bought my Fiat 500 1.2 in February this year (2011). Always attracted to little cute things I thought it was ideal for me, as my previous car was costing me too much in fuel and tax. The Fiat 500 has a 1.2 engine which is pretty nippy for about town, and I travel to University three times a...

I haved owned my new 2008 Fiat 500 now for one month and it's adoreable! It's the first Fiat in years - actually, make that ever, that I've really liked the looks of. It is a head turner. The dash is one of the car's most unique points. Interior and exterior styling is fantastic and there are...

“noddy's company car”

published 02/03/2006

Procute, small, rare, noddy's company car

Consnot good 4 long journeys

hese are cracking little cars with bags of character. They're slow as hell, so don't expect to go anywhere quick - average speed in hilly surroundings is 30mph, flat out is about 55mph (with a tail wind) and you have to stop every 80 miles or so to give the little air-cooled engine a breather...

“New Fiat 500”

published 04/03/2009

Prosmall, economical, nippy, looks cool

Consno fifth seat

I bought a new style fiat 500 in January 08. I loved the idea of being able to customise my own car - fiat had so many different options for colours/interiors/decorations. HOwever, on looking at the small print, it was clear that a lot of the add-ons are unnecessarily expensive, so I ended up...

I bought a Fiat 500 1.4 Lounge in Cha Cha Azure (baby blue) just over a year ago and I can genuinely say I love it more than any other car I may have had. Its small, cute and quite nippy. Definately appears to be a girly car but due to its high spec is still admired by men. So far not had too...

My wife and I just very recently replaced her 1.8 petrol sports cabrio which we had owned from new for seven years, with the Fiat. Why!? I have had people ask us! Well, we've gone from paying 265 GBP a year in road tax, down to just 30. Our insurance has just about halved from almost 400 GBP to...

I bought my Fiat 500 Lounge in March and I couldn't be happier with it. mine is a very girly car in my opinion but Fiat do have some added options to make the car look more sporty ie outside interior sport designs. I guess also it depends on what colour you get. Mine is Funk White which is a very...
