Can Fiats drive long distances?
Practicality & boot space. Despite not being the biggest of cars, the Fiat 500 is still practical enough. If you regularly have adults in the rear seats for long distances, the Fiat 500 may not be the car for you. Short trips will be fine, but anything longer and you’ll be receiving complaints.
Can you drive a Fiat 500 on highway?
You can drive the FIAT 500 on the highway, but I only recommend doing it on occasion, in the daytime and for no more than a few hours because the 500 is easily overwhelmed on the interstate. The FIAT 500 is a good city car, and that’s where it performs the best.
What engine is in a Fiat 500?
Our test 500 is powered by a 69hp 1.2-litre petrol engine. You can also opt for the noisy but zesty two-cylinder, 0.9-litre Twinair – available in 85hp and 105hp outputs. Unusually for a car this size, Fiat offers a diesel engine, too: the 95hp 1.3 Mulitijet.

Fiat Group’s studios worldwide got the chance to submit ideas for a complete design reinvention. After all that, in the end the company settled on familiarity: a retromodernised iteration of a 1957 shape. It’s 61mm longer, 56mm wider and 29mm taller than the petrol 500. The proportions are bolstered and the surfaces uncomplicated.
Who are the rivals of the Fiat 500?
In terms of style and emotional appeal, the 500’s closest rival is the MINI. However, BMW’s retro-remake is larger and more expensive: a supermini rather than a city car. The Toyota Aygo, Hyundai i10 and Volkswagen Up are all direct competitors.
