It was arguably one car, the Fiat 500, that turned Fiat's fortunes around in the UK. A superb blend of retro-inspired looks, affordable pricing, low running costs and a drive that offers plenty in the way of fun, the Fiat 500 is a modern day success story. A convertible, the Fiat 500C quickly followed and while popular in Europe, never really took off in the UK. However, in a similar vain to the Mini, the 500 has spawned a whole host of other variants, including the Fiat 500L - a mini MPV, the Fiat 500L MPW - a 7 seat MPV, and the Fiat 500 X - a fashionable crossover. But don't think Fiat is just a one trick pony. The Fiat Panda is a quirky city car that offers funky styling and great fuel economy in an incredibly compact package. There's even a 4x4 version. Convertible sports car enthusiasts will no doubt be attracted the the rear-wheel drive Fiat 124, developed in partnership with Mazda. Powered by a 1.4 litre turbocharged engine and sharing the same chassis as the Mazda MX-5, it offers a more relaxed drive thanks to Fiat engineers tweaking the suspension, steering and brakes.
