Despite a history patchier than 101 Dalmatians, Fiat seems to have cornered the market in cheap chic, mixing good value with wacky design to lasting effect. Rust and reliability problems have gone the way of the Supermirafiori, leaving behind a kind of Latin version of Ford.
£9,396 - £14,611
Fun and funky - the retro Fiat 500 is the darling of estate agents everywhere.
Price cuts and headturning new trims aim to encourage more into the fun but flawed 500
£14,995 - £18,890
The big brother to the regular Fiat 500 is roomier and more family-friendly. Nice work, fiat.
£14,071 - £18,981
Underplayed Golf wannabe hampered by the crappest bloodline in history. A shame, as it's actually not half bad, and it kicks the butt of its predecessor, the awful Stilo.
£11,356 - £17,891
One of those little vans that, with the simple addition of glass and seats, is magically transformed into... a little van with glass and seats. Better for boxes than kids.
£7,456 - £13,361
Fiat has revived its city car but not reinvented it. Clever Fiat: there was no need. It’s better than ever
£13,950 - £14,950
The regular Panda is one of our favourite city cars. The addition of 4x4 only enhances its appeal.
£9,581 - £15,196
Anyone looking for spirit won’t find it here. Some improvements but they aren’t enough.
£10,036 - £14,396
Comes with acres of interior space and its got practical plastics. But for once, the Italians have not designed a pretty car.
