Used Fiat 500 for Sale | Buy online with Finance
Is a used Fiat 500 a good buy?
Few other cars have such a prominent identity as the Fiat 500, it's easy to see why this iconic city car is one of the most popular models in the world. When the new version first hit roads in 2008, it paved the way for a sea of other small, manoeuvrable cars that have since filled the streets of cities around the world.
Despite being in production for over a decade at this point, the Fiat 500's compact and curved design with that happy little face and chrome touches still carry a retro appeal, and we've picked out the best deals on used models that you could take advantage of today.
The Fiat 500 is the epitome of the city car. Its small yet energetic engine is perfectly matched to the size of the car, offering peppy acceleration over short distances alongside the light and easy-to-manage steering, making it an absolute delight to drive around town centres.
Which used Fiat 500 should you buy?
There's now an even more economical mild hybrid engine available, too, with better fuel economy and lower emissions, while those after a zero-emission experience can also opt for the Fiat 500 Electric.
There is a huge variety of models on offer in a range of specifications at some very affordable prices. If you like the look of the Fiat 500, then chances are we can find one within your budget.
What used Fiat 500 trim levels are available?
Having been on sale since 2008, it's no surprise there's quite a bewildering array of Fiat 500 trim levels on the used market. The big change was in 2019 when the Fiat 500 was updated and new trim levels added.
Fiat 500 Pop
At the bottom of the tree, we have the Fiat 500 Pop. The cheapest model in the Fiat 500 range comes with electric windows, electric wing mirrors, and a USB port. You do also get LED daytime running lights, but in terms of tech, that's pretty much it - not to say that's necessarily a bad thing.
The result of this rather stripped-back approach is a tremendously low price, and actually, we quite like the simplistic nature of the interior: it features an old-school radio set up complete with dials and buttons - it's wonderfully retro and actually quite appealing in a car like this.
There is the possibility of Pop models including a sat-nav, which was an optional extra from new, so be aware that some Fiat 500 models may include this little bonus.
Fiat 500 Pop Star
If you're looking for a few more creature comforts, you could instead go for the next step up in the range - the Fiat 500 Pop Star. Take everything included in the entry-level trim and add air-conditioning, 15-inch alloy wheels, and split-folding seats to open up the options when trying to squeeze larger items into the boot.
This does all add a little more to the price, but air-conditioning might just be something you can't do without, so think carefully before opting for the cheaper version - a choice you might regret during a long, hot summer.
Fiat 500 Lounge
Opt for a Fiat 500 in Lounge spec and you'll be getting an all-round more complete package, although this does of course come at a higher price - newer models can be especially pricey.
As with other models on this list, we'd recommend looking for Lounge trim with the 0.9-litre turbocharged 'TwinAir' engine, as it tends to soften the blow on the running cost front and also brings better fuel economy and more speed.
In terms of equipment, there's either a five-inch or seven-inch (for post-2019 models) touchscreen media display with Bluetooth and digital radio inside along with cruise control, a sunroof, rear parking sensors and a leather steering wheel.
Fiat 500 Collezione
One of the many special edition Fiat 500s that have graced the market over the years, the Collezione adds an extra touch of style to this little Italian fancy.
Aside from the subtle styling flourishes, you can find around the front bumper, and the option of two-tone paintwork, it also has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities as well.
All in all, the Collezione is not terribly overpriced for what is essentially a cosmetic upgrade, and the inclusion of smartphone connectivity will help bring it right up to date.
Fiat 500 S
The Fiat 500 S was once the top model in the range. While it is technically the sportiest version of the 500, the engines themselves have no more power than any other, but we do again recommend aiming for a 0.9-litre TwinAir variant for its improved power and economy.
You do, however, get a more dramatic exterior look with larger bumpers and grey alloy wheels. Inside, there are sports seats with contrasting colour schemes, a larger, seven-inch touchscreen display, and a second display in place of the speedometer with a built-in sat-nav. 2018 models and beyond will also come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.
So there's a lot of extra bang for your buck here, and we would definitely recommend taking this step if you have the budget.
Fiat 500 Star
The Fiat 500 range was updated in 2019, bringing in a new range of trim levels and a host of interior upgrades. Star models come with a seven-inch touchscreen media display along with a seven-inch digital instrument display. There's a modern feel inside: a more sophisticated media system that features 3D navigation, Bluetooth, a USB socket, and digital radio features, while Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also included as standard.
There are chrome touches through the exterior styling, with 16-inch alloy wheels and a fixed glass roof adding a little extra style. There's also comfort in abundance, thanks to automatic climate control, cruise control, and a height adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel.
Fiat 500 Rockstar
The Fiat 500 Rockstar essentially offers a slight aesthetic variance on Star trim, without adding anything else of note. Additional chrome trims and tinted rear windows are about the only differences, so if you find yourself yearning for a little more sparkle, this will be right up your street.
Fiat 500 Dolcevita
Fiat unveiled a whole new range of 500 models in 2019 to signify the 62nd anniversary of the of the original Fiat 500 model. Along with a new selection of trim levels, the 500 is now exclusively available with a 1.0-litre mild hybrid petrol engine, unless of course you opt for the fully electric Fiat 500e.
Dolcevita spec comes with the option of a special white and grey exterior paint job, a smattering of chrome and a panoramic sunroof. Inside there's a seven-inch instrument display behind the steering wheel alongside a second seven-inch media system with digital radio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. Other features include cruise control and hill start assist.
Fiat 500 Connect
Connect is another of the new trims launched in 2019, featuring a more sporty exterior with a rear spoiler, angular bumpers and side skirts. Alongside all the features included with Dolcevita trim, the interior in Connect models is notable for its dark but classy feel, with a silver dashboard and distinctive seat design.
Fiat 500 Sport
The Fiat 500 Sport follows a similar path to Connect models will the same sporty styling but with the addition of a panoramic sunroof. Sport models feature the same media and safety features as Dolcevita and Connect trim, but also include automatic air-conditioning.
