Fiat 500, the retro city car still in fashion!

Jun 8, 2023

June 7, 2023 In this new episode of La Bonne Occaz, we present to you a city model that hasn’t aged a bit in 15 years, the Fiat 500! Launched in 2007, the first generation of the Fiat 500 will last until 2015, even if in sixteen years of existence, its atypical style on the market has hardly changed. If we may not like the design of this city car, we must still recognize that it brings a different look from the others on the automotive market. All in roundness, with its large front headlights similar to eyes, this Fiat 500 dares unusual lines among other manufacturers, in a micro-size. It is only 3.55 meters long. Easy to park almost anywhere. The interior of the Fiat 500 is also neo-retro Inside either, the Fiat 500 has hardly changed. Between a 2023 model and a 2007 model, the variations are few, except for the central screen. We find the round style of the exterior, whether at the level of the buttons or even the dressing of the counter. The chrome inserts also enhance the interior, and compensate with the lower console plastics, which can be scratched easily. The cockpit also displays a colorful style, mainly thanks to its large body-colored strip that runs along the entire dashboard. A small engine at home in town A rare thing, but we therefore recommend the small 1.2 69 engine instead. It is more than enough if you mainly make short trips. With almost flawless reliability, it also allows the Fiat 500 to fit on the main roads, at a pace, let’s say, a little more leisurely. Its version in a robotized box, the 1.2 69 Dualogic is more expensive, and may present some transmission problems. For those who really want to get out of the cities, the 1.4 100 can be a good alternative. However, its 6-speed gearbox increases the turning radius of the Fiat 500. Regarding the diesel, you can already put an end to it, which by the way is not so bad for a city car which risks driving exclusively in ZFEs. The 1.3 multijet engine is sorely unreliable, leading to engine failure. La Bonne Occaz, the second-hand podcast signed AutoPlus La Bonne Occaz is the AutoPlus podcast dedicated to used vehicles.

As for the motorization, you can forget the diesel, and the small petrol engine is more than enough for the range of use of the Fiat. Photo credit: EMERICK HOUPLAIN / AUTO PLUS
