Great styling, strong turbocharged engine, handles well, useable rear seats
Reliability issues, dated and poorly finished interior, lacks refinement
For striking and timeless looks, few cars can match the wonderfully styled Fiat Coupe. Well proportioned and athletic it has aged particularly well and still looks fresh despite first being introduced in 1995. It's available with a choice of engines but it's the five-cylinder turbocharged version of the 2.0-litre (badged 20v) that is the most sought after, particularly by enthusiasts.
With keen handling and a smooth ride the Coupe is a good everyday car with two useful rear seats and a good-sized boot. However reliability can be a problem, especially electrical niggles, while the interior isn't particularly well screwed together.
