The Fiat 500 makes a good used buy if you are not planning on commuting long distances. It is less pricey than many rivals, and its adorable appearance and retro styling add to its appeal.
The Twinair model produces very low CO2, too, so it is excused from the London Congestion Charge. Also, and very reassuringly, the Fiat scored a maximum 5-star rating in the gruelling Euro NCAP crash test safety programme.
When it achieved this, it was the first time that a car of such compact dimensions had achieved a top rating. Astonishingly, a vehicle of its type is also equipped with seven airbags as standard. This Fiat is an easy on the pocket, compact car that’s perfect for the urban driver.
