The Fiat 500 doesn’t get by on its cute Italian looks alone. With a smart engine under the bonnet, this city car will have you smiling during every (infrequent) trip to the petrol pump.
The most fuel efficient option I could find was the 0.9-litre Twinair Turbo. While it’s small, Fiat’s two-cylinder unit packs a decent punch, managing 0-62 mph in just 11 seconds and a top speed of 107 mph! Toss in impressive emission performance — just 90 g/km of CO2 — and you’ve got a really impressive engine.
In terms of fuel efficiency, here’s what you’re looking at:
- Urban: 61.4
- Extra-urban: 83.1
- Combined: 74.3
- Average Real World Performance: 48.3
At the reported average real world MPG, you’re looking at a fuel bill of £1,129.46 across the same 10,000-mile test.
