Select the motor type for the year.

Our guest is the iconic Fiat 500 for this review! In this review, we are going to analyze Fiat 500 under three main categories such as; The Features of the Fiat 500, The Fuel Consumption of the Fiat 500 and Does It Suit You? Before beginning the analysis, I would love to give some general information about the history of the Fiat 500. Originally, Fiat 500 was designed as a small city car manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat between years of late 50’s and mid 70’s. It has been announced as model Nuova which means “New” in the late 50’s. The original design belonged to Dante Giacosa. It has been assembled in Italy. Specifically, in Turin, Desio and Termini Imerese. However, 500 needed refreshments over the years. In 2007, Fiat decided to update the 500 model under the Type 312 project. The model name remained the same, but the shape of the car adapted to the modern world.


The Features of the Fiat 500

In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Fiat 500 such as; Exterior Design, Interior Design and Technological Features. Let’s start with the exterior design features. As a small city car, Original 500 shaped and designed perfectly for the narrow streets and parking places. When we take a look at the new generation 500, the original shape looks perfectly protected by the new generation designers. When we compare the old generation with the new one, the details on the body looks familiar. However, the new design looks a little bit bigger than the old one. Anyway, it is still perfect for daily urban life. You can easily use empty places in parking lots, even if they are too narrow for a compact car. On the other hand, Fiat 500 has got other attractive features rather than the small body size. It is also amazingly detailed. The roof options are various from trim to trim. You can choose a hard one or you can satisfy with the convertible one. In addition to that, color and rim design options are unlimited. You can combine different designs for a perfect match with your ideas. Fiat is so generous about it! When we pass to the interior design, energic but also elegant atmosphere shocks us. It has got customizable color options. So, you can feel the positive freshness in the cabin. The necessary display screens and technological equipment looks easy to use and well located. So, the driver and passenger have got a practice cabin design for an effective cabin space. As a final word, the technological features of the Fiat 500 will satisfy your needs. It has got 7” Touchpad Screen with Apple Car Play and Android Auto support, Bluetooth Connection, Navigation System, etc.


The Fuel Consumption of the Fiat 500

It is time to check out the fuel consumption of the Fiat 500. We usually focus on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as; The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That’s why we are using this method to make things easier for you. Fiat 500 has got three standard engine varieties such as; 0.9, 1.2 and 1.3 JTD. We are going to focus on just two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. So, we can start with the most economical one which is; 1.3 JTD. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1248 cm3 size. It is a diesel type engine so we can say that it is more economical when we compare it with the petrol engine. 1.3 JTD can produce 95 HP and 4000 RPM Torque, which is a proper power capacity for a small car like 500. According to the official factory data, 1.3 JTD has got a 4,1lt/100km (which refers to 69 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption rate in Urban usage. However, this MPG Rate decreasing to 3,0lt/100km (which refers to 94 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as; Highways or Long Distance Trip. When we combine these two fuel consumption data, we get a 3,4lt/100km (which refers to 83 MPG in the UK) average MPG performance. As the second option, we are going to focus on the most powerful engine option, which is; 0.9 Twin Air Turbo. It has got a two cylindered engine structure with an 875 cm3 size. It is a petrol type engine which produces 105 Horsepower and 5500 RPM Torque. 0.9 has got a 5,5lt/100km (which refers to 51 MPG in the UK) MPG rate in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG performance decreasing to 3,5lt/100km (which refers to 81 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel economy data, we get a 4,2lt/100km (which refers to 67 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption rate.


Does It Suit You?

We cannot say that it is a performance or a race car. It has got elegant and sophisticated details which are essential for an Italian design. It is also perfect for daily life with a small body size. So, if you are looking for a cute, characteristic and attractive mini car, Fiat 500 is the right car for you!
