Fiat

Fiat may be Italy’s largest carmaker, but in Australia it is a boutique brand known for quirky small cars and vans. The Fiat 500 and 500C are modern recreations of 1960s iconic city cars, and the Fiat Ducato is a van that sells in tiny numbers compared to rivals from Toyota, Isuzu and Hyundai.

A new nine-speed automatic leads a raft of Ducato updates, and delivers a much better van as a result. We drive it!

2018 Fiat 500X Pop Star Special Edition review
Review | 23 Aug 2018

When the 500X first hit the market in Australia, the compact SUV segment wasn't anywhere near as competitive as it is now. That segment in 2018 is a very different ball game.

Owner Review | 3 Jul 2021
I've never been a fan of Italian cars. They are charming but I have always been put off by high maintenance costs and parts availability. Rewind to the beginning of this year and I needed a cheap run about to get to work. With the used car market being so inflated I was having trouble finding something suitable for a reasonable price. I called a mate who deals in cars and he had this little beast. I was hesitant to to buy such a small and slow car especially bring a Fiat but I didn't have many options. It only had 125,000kms and was in good shape. Cost around $4k. Fast forward to today and it has been surprisingly 100% reliable. I haven't had any issues with it. I drive it in Sydney traffic daily and the average fuel consumption is 6L/100km. On more open roads it comes down closer to 5L. Its charm has grown on me. Yes its slow and not very refined but you can thrash it everywhere and throw it around like a go kart without losing your licence. Its true driving a slow car fast is more fun than a fast car slow. Once your underway it keeps up with traffic fine and handles freeway speeds well (if a little noisy). The gearshift is short however it doesn't have much feel and is a bit loose. The clutch is very light and is a little hard to get away smoothly on a hill. The seating position is a little awkward as I'm 6ft tall. I never can get the position just right. Rear seats and really only suitable for kids however you could squeeze an adult on there for a short trip. It was a cheap car to begin with so doesn't have many features but the Air conditioning works well and the Power Steering has 2 settings, normal and city. I always leave it in normal as city mode is extremely light and you can't feel anything through the wheel. Its hard to believe this car has been on the market for such a long time. It is quite outdated these days. Overall I've been quite happy with the Fiat. It has done exactly what it says on the box without fuss. Would I buy another one? No.

Owner Review | 12 Mar 2020
We own a Twin Air 500C. Taking in mind the looks, performance, fuel economy, desirability, usability and price, this is a perfect small car. Everywhere we go people look and admire Bella, as we have christened her. The tiny two cylinder (2 beer can size) engine is gutsy with a surprising amount of low end torque and even loaded with four adults can keep up well on most road conditions with most cars. The engine is also very economical, although not as good as FIAT would lead you to believe, but the small tank will return a decent long range when motorway cruising. Economy dips in city traffic, but then what car doesn’t? She’s cute as a button, timeless looks so no desire to update the car every couple of years. She’s an instant classic, unlike the ever growing MINI, or should it now be called the MAXI? We don’t have kids, so the car is ideal for a fortnight road trip for the two of us even if we take our dog. Even shopping at IKEA poses few problems as a quick push of a button opens the roof and even a wardrobe can be transported home, albeit, with quite a bit sticking out of the top. But, we did get it home, so the weekly shop is no problem for this little car. Sure other small cars come with a heck load more electrical goodies, but in reality the only thing I would like is cruise control. Our version, with Dualogic cog box (a god send in city driving, although not the quickest shifter), leather and a chrome bonnet spur was AU$23,000 after a lot of haggling on a special order. For the day it was a bargain but not in comparison to other marques. Still we don’t get hit with depreciation because we don’t want to upgrade her. Problems. No cruise control as mentioned and the cup holders don’t hold our cups. The rear view is obscured but it doesn’t bother people who can drive, it’s just part of the charm, if you’ve any complaints try a truck. Being Italian it does suffer from the most appalling dealer service though. On a day to day it’s not a problem as we have a specialist mechanic that looks after her, not that we have had any problems other than a clutch replacement that the electronics said we needed, but was about 20,000km too early. The dealer problem was when we ordered the car. Selected pale blue, beige roof and cream interior with white highlights. Placed deposit and waited the three months we were told it would be before a car could be transported to our side of the world. That date came and went without any communication from the dealer. No car, it disappeared. Four months later the car arrived. The transportation company couldn’t find it in their yard after it had been unloaded off the ship. A week later the car was in the dealers yard being offloaded from the transporter. I rushed to see it. It was the wrong car. Pale blue, yes, but with a black roof and interior. I went ballistic got a few grand knocked off the price and a promise that a new order was being placed that day. Eighteen months after the first order was signed, Bella arrived. Still the wrong car as the wheels were wrong and the headlights were not the projector units as ordered. They swapped the wheels, but could do nothing about the lights, so got another couple of grand off and a free plug in satnav, without the optional plug-in hole that was needed to operate it. Ah the fun of the Italians. Still left the dealer never to return and headed off to our favourite Italian restaurant for lunch. Half an hour after leaving the dealer parked outside Mario’s in Fitzroy we were enjoying a glass of wine ordering pasta and watching a passerby taking a picture of Bella. Quite a regular thing these days.

2017 Fiat 500 POP review
Owner Review | 19 Nov 2019
My partner and I were recently lucky enough to go on a trip around Spain and Portugal and thought the best way to see the countryside was by car. I was pleasantly surprised upon landing to discover we were assigned a Fiat 500S (unsure if they are available in this spec in Aus?). An estimated guess is that it was equivalent to a pop with the 1.2L 4 cylinder engine optioned with a body kit, different wheels and bucket seats. I got the manual of course. The little rocket screams character to me the moment you look at it. Weaving through the beautiful timeworn buildings of Europe it gains even more than if I were driving it back home. Whoever penned the original 500's shape was a real artist and the modern designers did well with the recreation. However like with the Mini, I wish they weren't supersized versions of their ancestors. The ute phenomenon obviously is non- existant here replaced with more economical hatches (a lot more electric cars especially the Zoe) and prestige German makes. In fact are so many nice German cars passing you that they eventually became a bit of a boring spectacle. However in comparison the 500 brought a fresh smile to my face every time I saw it. The rest of the car was a bit mixed. The interior is really quite funky and I thought fairly functional. There are hard plastics everywhere but I cannot fault Fiat for this considering the asking price. The steering wheel seemed particularly cheap however and this is the only thing that really took something away from my experience in the cockpit. This version had great little bucket seats and were comfortable on 5 hour plus days. We had enough boot space for two school type backpacks and 2 large suitcases with the rear seats folded down (no they do not go completely flat). Once the car is in motion you have fairly good vision front ways however your blindspot is not really resolved by looking over your shoulder in this car. There is a big pillar in the way. This made a fun experience changing lanes in peak hour, whilst jet lagged, through Madrid's initially confusing traffic system. The ride is nice and smooth through the city bumps which is probably what it's prime function should be. For those wanting to know I don't think it would be as sharp driving it hard. The steering was fine, it wasn't the most engaging small car experience. My partner's 2012 Fiesta back home is much more engaging to give you a comparison. At highway speeds also comfortable, a little bit unstable if you get a bad patch of road. However the biggest letdown is the engine. It was largely a unresponsive mess that did not really want to do the work for you. Now I do not want a car that sets any statistical benchmarks, all I am interested is in the feel of the car. It just really let it all down. I was picturing a happy high revving little unit which you had to work to get the best out of. You still have to work the gears for this unit but you are never really rewarded. The engine was economical enough through the city but on Spain's 120km/hr highways it seemed to really suck the juice. Additionally on single lane country roads you have to be really brave to overtake that slow moving caravaner between bends. I The gearbox is fine- a 5 speed. Perhaps an extra lower ratio somewhere could help. Any higher in top wouldn't be functional with the power of this 1.2. The brakes did well as far as I tested them (not much). Interested in all the fancy new safety spec electronics? I must admit I am not so although I did not look for it, pretty sure no lane assist or brake assist or whatever else new cars are coming equiped with. From a practical safety perspective the blind spot and lack of overtaking prowess where my biggest concerns. The lack of a full spare tyre always makes me nervous however I assume it is probably the industry standard in cars of this size? There were no faults in the car whilst we drove it. Was the 500's engine shortcomings enough to sour my driving experience? No they were not. However with this engine they would be enough to stop me ever buying one. It just took so much away from the cars personalitiy for me. Sure if I tested it with the smaller 2 cylinder version available at least here there is a fair chance it would change my mind. If you are considering buying one I suggest you take it for a spin on a nearby freeway to really get a feel for it.
