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... As you can see, when folded down, the fabric roof of the Fiat 500 convertible covers over the hinges of the boot. This makes the boot very difficult to open. Luckily, Fiat has thought of this...

2017 Abarth 595 revealed: tiny hot hatch gets power bump, tweaked looks

Fiat Chrysler Australia may have only just recently launched its revised entry-level $27,500 Abarth 595 into the Australian market, but now there’s an even newer one: the 2017 Abarth 595. That’s no surprise, either. With the wider Fiat 500 range given a facelift earlier this year, the arrival of the 2016 Abarth 595 in the little hatch’s older skin made it something of a placeholder for an anticipated makeover...

So you want a Fiat 500 but you don't want the poppy, stroppy Abarth model? The 2016 Fiat 500S is the car for you.

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...

2014 Fiat 500 SS Review

Intro: Changing priorities: Except for a two-year period where I was cruising around the roads of Melbourne in a 1974 Citroen DS, I have always owned performance oriented cars – A Porsche Boxster here, a couple of RenaultSport and Ford hot hatches there and a Mazda RX-7… mostly sitting at my mechanic’s workshop...

2013 Fiat 500 POP Review

Ok, let’s be clear. I love this car. And like anyone that writes a review of something they have forked out their hard earned for, a sense of bias will always shine through. With that in mind, I will try and be as honest and impartial as I can. I bought my Fiat 500C Pop brand new in October 2013...
