With its combination of interior practicality, head-turning good looks and outstanding fuel efficiency, the Fiat 500 represents a stylish and supremely economical transport solution. Thanks to its compact frame and generous amount of interior space, it is the ideal choice for those looking for a car on the Motability Scheme.
There is no denying the chic European appeal of the 500. The curvature of the body and circular headlamps hark back to the classic original, while contemporary innovations like large windows and a SkyDome glass roof enhance the visual aesthetic significantly. Customisation options, meanwhile, are extremely generous, including 14 body colours and nine wheel choices, allowing you to truly express your personality through this dynamic model.
The interior does not disappoint either, with premium upholstery and a dashboard which matches the exterior body colour.
The seating arrangement combines retro cool with amazing practicality, offering plenty of legroom for everyone on board and enough boot space for you to fit a mobility scooter or wheelchair in. The glass roof floods the cabin with light, creating a bright, breezy atmosphere. In terms of technology, there is plenty on offer, with Blue&Me TomTom satellite navigation ensuring that you reach your destination on time.The 500 outshines its competition on the road, too. With a choice of 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines to choose from, there is a power level to suit all needs – up to 105bhp. CO2 emissions, meanwhile, are astoundingly low from just 90g/km, ensuring the car's environmental credentials.
In terms of safety, the 500 is packed with seven airbags – the only compact city car to offer this many – so you can rest assured that occupants will be protected in the event of a collision. Clever passive safety systems like hydraulic brake assistance and an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) mean that you will remain in control at all times. It's no wonder, then, that this model has earned the maximum five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
