A retro ramble around Sydney in the Fiat 500C Lounge

The Fiat 500 has been taken to with a comb full of Brylcreem for MY16 and when the new Fiat 500C arrived in the CarAdvice garage, it got us feeling a bit nostalgic. Its makeover may appear subtle, and therefore the analogical equivalent of popping a bit of product in your hair, but the little Fiat has retained that distinct charm and old-school style that still serves to conjure up memories of days gone by...

Fiat 500 Sport Convertible : Getting the top down

It's a nice day, the sun is out - so we've got our roof down on the Fiat 500 Sport convertible. But, we've left something in the boot...

2013 Fiat 500 Pop review

Back in November of 2014, I uploaded a review of my Fiat 500C Pop on CarAdvice. At that point I’d had the car a little over a year (purchased new in October 2013) and had covered approximately 19,000km. For the most part, I don’t intend on going over the things I covered in that initial review again here. If you want to read it, you can here...

2014 Fiat 500 Review

All cars have their weaknesses, even when they're newly-released class benchmarks. As the years roll by and competitors relentlessly release new models, these weaknesses only become increasingly magnified. This is bad news for the Fiat 500S that I'm reviewing here – a car that has now been on the market for eight long years...

2014 Fiat 500 POP Review

A great little car- I am upgrading to the 1.4 twin air version which have more guts. The 1.2 is a bit sluggish however it is fun to chuck about. The running cost is very cheap and they aren't overally expensive to buy. They are a fun little car which holds its value but go for the bigger engine! The sport kit which is the option I went for gives the car a much funkier, younger look with bigger bumpers, side trim and a tiny spoiler...
