Overall Average Rating: 82.95%
Position in the Top 100 cars: 86th
Most new cars experience teething troubles, and Fiat will be hoping that the 500 result is merely a blip. As the scoresheet shows, the Italian city car hasn’t won all owners over in its first year.
Only two models ranked worse for ride quality than the 500 and performance is almost as low. Fourth for running costs gives the Fiat a boost.
Manufacturer Verdict (Position: 30th)
As Alfa falls, owner Fiat has jumped six places in the manufacturer chart. Although the 500 debuted in a disappointing 86th in the Top 100, it has still helped to lift the Italians’ overall average.
