Fiat 500 Frequently Asked Questions
The Fiat 500 is one of the most noticeable cars on UK roads, with cute, retro looks and loads of customisation options. The standard model has been a favourite for many years, and there’s now a new, all-electric model too.
Both remain available, in both hatchback and convertible body styles. If you want a car that still turns heads as it drives by, then it’s hard to get better for less money than the Fiat 500.
Part of the Fiat 500’s appeal is its very attractive leasing rates, so you’ll be able to get into one of the most recognisable cars on the road for less than you might think. Whichever model you go for, you can take advantage of Select Car Leasing’s market-leading links to the automotive industry.
These mean that we can offer some of the most competitive rates and special offers in the country. Check out the full list of Fiat 500 lease deals to see which one is the best for you.
The retro looks of the 500 are a major part of its appeal. They’re taken from the original, now-iconic 500 of the late 1950s, and have proved immensely popular with UK customers since it launched in 2007. That model remains available today, with lots of personalisation options inside and, and mild-hybrid power from its petrol engines.
There’s also a new version of the 500, released in 2020, which is powered purely by electricity. Its battery gives it a range of up to 199 miles from a single charge. Both versions are available as three-door hatchback, or as convertibles, with a retractable fabric roof.
The latest 500 hasn’t yet been tested by independent safety organisation Euro NCAP, but it does come loaded with some of the latest active systems to help avoid an accident, and keep you safe if one does occur. The older, non-electric model scored well when it was tested at launch in 2007, but safety standards have moved on considerably since then. It was tested again in 2017 and scored only three stars.
Practicality isn’t really a strong point or a priority for the 500; it’s very small by design, which is great for nipping in and out of city traffic, but probably won’t be suitable for families. Two adults up front will be fine, but the rear seats are really for small children only and the boot is on the small side.
Fiat is very keen on stressing the customisation options for the 500, and throughout its existence the company has brought out new special editions and trim levels to keep things fresh. To that end, it hardly seems worth explaining the current trim options, as they’ll likely have changed by the time you read this.
Suffice to say there are plenty of options in terms of paint, alloy wheel designs and interior colour schemes, as well as extras like a panoramic sunroof. All have alloy wheels and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so that you can connect up your smartphone.
Experience didn't start well, I had ordered a car offered as in stock as I was on a tight turn around with my former lease vehicle through another provider being returned. I only found out by chance of logging in that the planned delivery date had been pushed back (which would have potentially meant missing out on a holiday as no vehicle). However once Mark and the team picked up on this they truly went above and beyond to sort it out and ended up getting my vehicle delivered several days earlier than expected. Very impressed and would definitely recommend.
Great service from Voytek from start to finish. This is the 2nd time I’ve leased a car with his help and couldn’t fault anything. The transition has been seamless, I highly recommended him for future leasing! Thanks Voytek for everything :-)
