Low ownership costs; cheeky character; nimble around town
Feels a bit flimsy and lightweight.
Cheap, neatly styled and great fun to drive. All models are inexpensive to run and the 1.1 Sporting is nippy enough for longer trips. The only downside is the flimsy and lightweight feel to the Cinquecento, which feels like it will crumple like an empty coke can in any collision. Be sure to check the condition of the bodywork and trim carefully before purchasing and do not expect wonders on the motorway.
Otherwise, the Cinquecento is great around town, feels agile, and is great fun to drive.
