500 Report

01:24

The latest in a line of chic, retro-themed boutique cars, the Fiat 500 packs plenty of style into 355cm.

Although the shape may be vaguely reminiscent of the 1957 original, little else about the Fiat 500 sticks to its predecessor’s back to basics appeal. This time round, the 500 is unashamedly chic, offering an upmarket look and feel that will doubtless carve a sizeable chunk into MINI’s bottom line.

Fully half a century after the launch of the original Fiat 500, it’s back. It was one of the worst kept secrets in motoring, the Italian maker displaying the Trepiuno concept car back in 2004 with most realising that productionising this car, based on a modified Panda chassis, shouldn’t prove too difficult. Three years later, here it is, polished, primed and with its sights set squarely on BMW’s MINI.

Fiat has latterly built a reputation for having a wide Range of excellent powerplants, especially at the smaller end of the product portfolio. It was to Fiat that Suzuki turned when they wanted a small diesel for their SX4 model, offering the Italians what was to become their Sedici in exchange. Indeed, the 75bhp 1.3-litre 16v Multijet diesel engine fitted to the 500 is so good that it rather overshadows the otherwise excellent pair of petrol powerplants. These comprise an entry-level 69bhp 1.2 8v and a punchy 100bhp 1.4-litre 16v. Five or six speed manual transmissions are offered and the 500 has been designed to replicate the original car’s nimble feel and ability to put a smile on its driver’s face. A 155bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged Abarth model is also in the pipeline, fully tooled up with beefier steering, retuned suspension and a few aerodynamic tweaks.

Much of the underpinnings are based on Panda running gear – no bad thing as the Panda is a fun steer. Like the Panda, the 500 uses simple MacPherson strut suspension up front and a basic torsion beam at the back. A few centimetres have been added to the width of the car’s track, giving it a foursquare appearance and Fiat claims that body rigidity is around 10 per cent better than the Panda.

The 500 is significant in more than the obvious ways. Built at the Tychy plant in Poland alongside the Panda, the chassis also forms the basis for the all-new Ford Ka. At 1.65m wide, 1.49m high and 3.55m long, the 500 doesn’t take up a great deal of space. For reference, a MINI is 1.91m wide, 1.40m high and 3.68m long: in other words much wider, a little lower and a fair bit longer. Even Renault’s second generation Twingo, at 3.60m, won’t fit into some parking spaces the 500 will be able to squeeze into.
