Fiat have nailed the vintage look with styling that's somewhere between chic and cheeky, but this little beauty isn't a case of style over substance, the 500 is also cheap to run and offers a fun, spritely driving experience.
If you’re looking to turn heads with a stylish, fun, fashionable car then the Fiat 500 could be the one for you. And the best news is that you can secure a new Fiat 500 with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
The Fiat 500 looks undeniably cool, but there is plenty more to love about this car than its stylish good looks. Since its re-introduction in 2007, it has won over 40 major awards including CAR magazine Car of the Year award. Small, but perfectly formed this car comfortably seats 4 people making the nimble Fiat 500 a perfect choice for urban driving. It can easily nip through traffic and makes fitting in tight spaces seem like a doddle.
Large windows give you good visibility and the light steering makes it a joy to drive and easy to park. The City Steering button lightens the steering even more to give better manoeuvrability.
If you're after a car that delivers bags of style on a budget then look no further than the Fiat 500. While most of its competitors complement cost-cutting performance with middle of the road looks, the Fiat is both fashionable and thrifty. It's considerably cheaper to buy than retro rivals like the Mini and Beetle, and most models keep running costs down thanks to excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
As you might expect with the Fiat 500, the interiors are just as sleek and stylish as the outside. Choose from a range of seat fabrics including lively checks and retro leathers.
The five-inch “Uconnect” infotainment screen contains standard USB slots and the premium Lounge model has social media connectivity through the system. If you’re willing to pay extra you can opt for a DAB radio and integrated TomTom satnav with traffic data.
All models come with 7 airbags as standard as well as skid-reducing and anti-lock brakes. Hazard lights will also come on under hard braking to warn the traffic behind.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
