Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Despite the regular 500C not being crash tested yet, the 500 model has and was awarded five stars. With a stiffer chassis than the regular 500C the Abarth version should prove to be pretty sturdy. Safety features are also impressive with seven airbags as standard, stability control and hill holder – this stops the car rolling back on hill starts.

Customers won’t be going out their way to buy this car for its carrying capabilities, but you still get the 182 litres of boot space offered in the regular 500C. This means you will out-do most of the rivals when it comes to carrying luggage. However, if you do need a little more room you’ll have to pay extra for folding rear seat.
