The fiat 500 looks like a nice little mottar. I imagine its nicer inside and better to drive than the awful Citroen C1 that I had the mis-pleasure of driving for 6 weeks last year !
If ever I was forced to get a smaller more economical car (NEVER !
) then I would go for something like the 500.
Very very tight for space Dave, A mind boggling range of accessories and add ons.
Punto would be just as economical to run tho with a lot more space, far more practical.
Mini is another that comes with a host of extras, Diesel is awful, not keen on the convertible.
I think it all depends on the colour if it's girly looking or not, I like them with big wheels fill the arches.
Yep I agree I'm not so keen on the face lifted version.
But good cars to drive . and at the moment very good residuals, To many about now, tho it is hard to find 2 the same
I had a lot of minis in the past, all types and configurations, My fave was a mini pick up
Great fun with a 1310 engine
As I said before not sure I would want to revisit them now best left in the past
or for very occasional use.
Nostalgia is best left in the past sometimes
