Used Fiat 500 for sale
The Fiat 500 is a small city car with bundles of character and charm. As one of Fiat's best-selling models, the 500 is a great option when nipping around town or going to the shops.
It's also a great alternative to Fiat's larger models, such as the Punto and 500X, if you don't need the extra space. A wide range of other benefits can be found within the 500, such as:
- Low running costs
- A wide variety of colour and styling combinations
- Multiple engines to choose from
- A good level of technology available
Discover the benefits of the Fiat 500 in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
You'll find a variety of petrol engines on used examples. The popular 0.9-litre and 1.2-litre engines can achieve up to 70mpg and 58.9 respectively on a combined cycle, according to Fiat. A 1.0-litre mild hybrid is also available, averaging around 53.3mpg combined.
1.3-litre diesel engines can be found which are more fuel efficient, but these were discontinued in 2018. Returning an impressive fuel economy figure of up to 76.3mpg, the diesel variant is more suitable if regularly travelling long distances.
As of 2021, an electric version has been released titled '500e' which is built on a bespoke EV platform. No matter which powertrain you choose, you can be confident the 500 is great around town thanks to its nimble handling.
Practicality and Running Costs
Being a small city car, the 500 doesn't offer the most practical of interior spaces but it's fairly roomy for the driver and front passenger. Coming exclusively as a 3-door, adults can fit in the rear but may find it difficult to clamber in and out, so it may not be the most suitable if regularly travelling with multiple passengers.
Considering the overall dimensions of the car, boot space is respectable. A 185-litre space can be used to transport luggage, increasing to 550 litres when dropping the rear seats.
Running costs are low, making the Fiat 500 a great choice for young drivers. Insurance starts at group 9 (out of 50) rising up to group 19 if opting for a higher specification. Any Evans Halshaw dealership is also well-equipped to take care of any maintenance or servicing requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Fiat have ensured the 500 possesses the same charisma inside the cabin as it does on the outside. With various colour combinations available, the 500 can also come with a convertible or panoramic roof.
With a good level of equipment available, the 500 comes with a Uconnect infotainment system as standard, but opting for a higher specification example could see you have further features such as satellite navigation and a touchscreen system.
A variety of safety equipment can also be found on the Fiat 500, giving you (and your parents, if you're a young driver) peace of mind. Available equipment includes skid-reducing anti-lock brakes, hill-hold assist and seven airbags around the cabin.
Is the Fiat 500 right for me?
The Fiat 500 is an excellent contender if you're in the market for a charismatic city car to get you around town. Its wide variety of engines means it can also tackle longer journeys fairly comfortably.
Like the look of the Fiat 500, but want something sportier and more exciting to drive? The Abarth 595 is based on the Fiat 500, but is more dynamic. If you need something more practical, the Skoda Citigo and SEAT Mii offer larger boots and more spacious interiors.
Nonetheless, the Fiat 500 still offers a wide range of benefits and should be considered if you're after a fun city car.
