Fiat

Fiat was founded in Turin Italy in 1899, producing 24 cars in 1900. After an initial struggle after WW1 they recovered by launching a variety of models. Fiat continued to grow and today also has ownership in Chrysler, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Ferrari. In Australia the Fiat is distributed by Ateco who recently removed all but the 500 from its lineup.

Citroen Berlingo v Fiat Doblo v Volkswagen Caddy comparison

Small vans at small prices – that’s the mantra for this test, with three value-focused compact cargo carriers going against each other to find out which is the best small van you can get. The three vans we have here may not be household names to the majority of passenger car buyers, but if you own a small business – say you’re a florist, plumber, painter, baker or any number of other professions – there’s a chance you know the Citroen Berlingo, Fiat Doblo and Volkswagen Caddy...

You want to join the growing army of people moving into small crossover SUVs, but you aren’t necessarily the sensible family type. You want something a little more style-focused. What do you buy?

Time Machine Tuesday: March 20, 2018

People often say “don’t forget where you came from”. Although we’re focused on every new car, every last detail here at CarAdvice, we have an extensive back-catalogue of news stories, lifestyle yarns and reviews. Here’s a look at what happened on the week of March 20 in years past...

2019 Fiat 500X spied

The facelifted Fiat 500X has been spied in Europe this week, giving us a preview of what to expect from the updated Italian SUV. Despite heavy camouflage at the front and rear, we can see the revised bumper and lighting treatments at both ends. There's a new C-shaped LED daytime-running light signature a-la the 500 hatchback at the front, revised head- and tail-light units, and re-shaped fog-lights when compared to the current model...

2015 Fiat 500 S review

Ah, the Fiat 500. Is there a more divisive car out there? It’s definitely one of those cars you buy with your heart, and not your head. Since its release in 2007, I’d lusted after one but my head kept winning. It’s too expensive. Too impractical. It’s way too small. It’s going to be unreliable...

2017 Fiat 124 Spider review

A quick note before I jump into the review. In case you haven’t read my 2017 Civic or any other of my owner car reviews, I’m a 14-year-old from Sydney and I have a deep passion for cars. Let's step back in time for a second. Back in 1976, Motor Trend contributor Bob Hall was asked by Mazda's R&D team what he wanted to see in a future Mazda product...

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...

2016 Fiat Ducato LWB/mid Review

This is my 2nd Ducato. First was the 2.3L which had plenty of power but the 3L has even more and drives like a car but with better driving position. One problem with the 2013 Ducato was the rear door stays which held electric cabling for heated rear windows and central locking, these over time break down and cause intermittent central locking on the rear doors, this has been addressed on the 2015 model and is no longer a problem...
