The Fiat 500 has been given a relatively mild facelift, exactly eight years after the company's best-selling supermini went on sale, and 58 years after the launch of the original 500.
The Fiat 500 has been tweaked slightly for the 2014 model year, with new colours and fabrics, plus a new digital instrument display.
Fiat has launched a new special edition of the Fiat 500 - the Fiat 500 GQ - created in association with the men's magazine.
In 1958, when tuning supremo Carlo Abarth created his masterpiece, the Fiat 500 Abarth, it had precisely double the power of the model it was based on – 26 bhp, up from 13 bhp. He worked his magic by increasing the 479cc engine’s compression ratio, fitting a larger Webber carburettor, optimising the fuel and air intake systems, and tuning the exhaust. Today, the basic Fiat 500 starts life with a measly 68 bhp, so it seems fitting that the modern day Abarth 500 boasts an almost double 135 bhp. In a world where the Clio Renaultsport and Peugeot 208 GTi have 200 bhp, that might not sound like much. But the Abarth has two particularly compelling strings to its bow: an abundance of character, and value for money. While many manufacturers are finding ways to increase their sticker prices, the cost of the Abarth actually fell recently, and today a shiny new 500 can be yours for just £14,205.
