Fiat 500 C 0.9 TwinAir

The eager Fiat 500C TwinAir combines great green credentials with everyday usability. It is a wonderfully characterful engine with an unusual sound. It makes the little Fiat great fun to drive while being particularly economical. It does struggle to match the official economy figures however, partly because the TwinAir engine begs you to put your foot down. For pure driving enjoyment however it rivals the 500C Abarth.

The Fiat 500 Convertible is unashamedly retro but that’s no bad thing. Rather than following the herd and trying to squeeze a folding hardtop into the little car Fiat have instead kept the door pillars in the same style as the cult classic 1950′s Nuova, and fitted a soft top in between. The original managed to combine a movie star chic with mass market practicality. The new car looks to repeat this and with its super efficient engines appeals to the bank account as well as the heart.

One Owner Review

  1. My wife’s got a 500C Twin Air, she loves the styling and the drivability of the car. What we don’t like is the abysmal fuel consumption, averaging 34 – 38mpg according to use. The car offers a fine driving experience and the motoring journalists love it but it is clear that they lazily regurgitate official MPG figures instead of checking the real world consumption for themselves.

    A charming car but a con trick. There’s no defect with the car, the official consumption figures are obtained in highly artificial conditions that the owner cannot duplicate. I bought the car on the strength of reviews by people like you hyping impossible figures instead of testing it for yourselves and I’m paying for that mistake week in week out at the petrol pump.
