How much does a Fiat cost to insure?

When you think of a Fiat, you’ll probably be thinking of the Fiat 500. And it’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular Fiat models people get car insurance quotes for.

One of the most popular versions of the Fiat 500 is the Lounge, which costs around £480* a year to insure.

This popular hatchback isn’t one of the priciest Fiats available, which again probably adds to its popularity. You can pick up a used model from around £4,300.

If you want something with a little more pizazz, the Fiat 500 Pop might be more your flavour. It has the same engine as the 1.4 litre Lounge but with a different trim. It features 16-inch titanium semi-gloss wheels, bifunctional halogen projector headlights and power heated mirrors. The average insurance premium for the Fiat 500 Pop is £464*.

The car’s performance and engine power are just two factors when working out the car insurance quote for a Fiat.

But there are several more that could influence how much you pay for your Fiat car insurance. This includes your claims and convictions history, where you live and whether you use the car for business. Your occupation could also have a hand in whether your insurance costs are higher or lower than normal.

Fiat 500

The standard petrol version of the Fiat 500 is now available in four trims:

Pop - this starting model features blue fabric seats, air con and a 5" touch screen radio. However, while it may not have all the features of pricier models, it still has an iconic design and offers panoramic views with its glass roof. It also makes a bold statement repeating its exterior colour on the dashboard too.

You can set your speed limit from the steering wheel and the Hill Holder function makes hill starts a doddle.

Dolcevita - this trim has a more impressive interior with white sand Matelasse seats, chrome detailing,15" alloy wheels and cruise control.

Dolcevita Plus - with this upgrade you can also enjoy automatic climate control, a 7" TFT digital instrument cluster and 7" touchscreen radio with 3D navigation, bluetooth, USB and DAB

500 Red - expect more red styling in this model which supports the global health emergency charity (RED).

Prices for a petrol Fiat 500 start at £13,294. You can expect to pay a typical £464* insuring a Fiat Pop or £560* for the Dolcevita.

The new range of electric Fiat 500s include hatchback and cabrio models.

The La Prima by Bocelli trims feature a sound system mastered by the Italian tenor, while the Icon boasts burnished 16" alloy wheels and 10.25" infotainment system.

Cars in the Fiat 500 electric range have a 199 mile range and will charge enough power for 30 miles in five minutes.

Safety features include Traffic Jam Assist, which autonomously help you maintain distance from other vehicles, accelerate, brake and stay in lane.

Electric Fiat 500 Icons start at £25,054 with insurance approximately £466* a year.

Fiat 500X

The Fiat 500X is the big brother to the Fiat 500; a small SUV with the iconic Italian styling the marque is famous for.

Models available include the 500X Sport, 500X Cross and 500X Urban. It's also available with the Dolcevita trim too.

Technology features include traffic sign recognition, lane assist and cruise control with the 500X Sport.

The 500X is available with a hybrid or petrol engine.

Fiat Panda

The small but nippy Fiat Panda is available in Life and Cross ranges.

The Cross range features body coloured cross bumpers and bi-coloured wheels.

Fiat Tipo

The Fiat Tipo was revamped in December 2020 to give it a new look and feel, with the SUV-style Tipo Cross trim. Other trims in the range are the Tipo and Tipo Life.

Sticking to the Cross, this model has a top speed of 114 mph, and can do zero to 60 mph in 11.8 seconds. It’s in insurance group 11, so not the cheapest 1.0L car to insure.

The Tipo Cross costs from £21,634, £2,000 more than the Life model. The extra you pay is for a sleeker look, as well as a rear-view camera, rear arm rest and a full-size spare wheel among other benefits.

As with the 500, the Tipo features the new Fiat logo and is available in a range of colours, including Paprika Orange and Oceano Blue.

Insurance for a Fiat Tipo is likely to cost around £403*.

Fiat history and facts

Fiat Automobiles, originally Fabbrica Italiana Automolil Torino, was formed in 1899, when the Fiat 4 HP rolled off the production line. In recent times Fiat merged with Fiat Chrysler and has subsequently become part of the Stellantis group.

Throughout the later part of the 20th Century, and at least up to the late 1980s, Fiat was the third largest automobile manufacturer in the world behind General Motors and Ford. A deepening crisis in the motor trade as the millennium drew near saw the Italian firm withdraw from some markets, but it remains in the top ten worldwide car makers.

The Fiat has been around for years, but still surprises with its style and verve. In fact, the Fiat 500 was named Auto Express City Car of the Year 2021, along with the Hyundai 110 and Volkswagen up!

What's next for Fiat?

With Fiat moving into the electric car space, ahead of the proposed ban on new petrol and diesel cars from 2030, these are exciting times for the manufacturer. Aside from the 500 series, Fiat has also introduced the Concept Centroventi, which it describes as a blank canvas.

This electric vehicle got its name in recognition of the company’s 120-year anniversary in 2019. Its compact look and customisable styling – with a multitude of colour options for roof, bumper, wheels and bodywork – is intended to standout.

The Concept Centroventi pre-empted the 2021 40th anniversary edition of the Fiat Panda. This is a 4x4 with a 0.9 litre 85 horsepower engine and joins the 1.0 litre 70 bhp hybrid, which launched in 2020.
