The Top Gear car review:Fiat 500
Final thoughts and pick of the range
If you like the look of the 500 and that means more to you than the way it drives, have one. It’s fundamentally a charming small car, one you’ll develop a relationship with and enjoy tootling around in.
But if you’re more mercenary in outlook there are a few things to be aware of. The ride, refinement and ergonomics have been left behind by the likes of the VW Up and the 500 does look expensive when viewed alongside the cheaper, but inwardly very similar, Panda.
Overall, continuing popularity means Fiat hasn’t felt any compulsion to replace or update the 500 beyond the bare minimum. Technically and mechanically other city cars outstrip it, but emotionally – well, that’s up to you. We understand.
