​It may not be a sporty drive, but the Fiat 500 Hybrid at least offers reasonable efficiency offering a claimed average of 61.4mpg on the WLTP combined cycle, along with CO2 emissions as low as 104g/km.

These figures are decent, and the little Fiat should be a cheap car to run. The company says the Hybrid is 30 per cent more economical than the old 1.2-litre petrol 500, thanks in part to the engine cutting out when decelerating below 18mph. The six-speed gearbox plays its part here, too, although you’re unlikely to spend much time in top gear if you like to make decent speed over ground.

Insurance groups

As you’d expect given its limited performance figures, the 500 Hybrid’s group 10 insurance rating should prove affordable for most, but inexperienced drivers may wish to look elsewhere.

Depreciation

Most Fiats tend to struggle with miserly depreciation figures, and while the older 500's initial desirability meant it initially bucked that trend, it's now a very common sight on UK roads. Our expert data predicts that the 500 Hybrid should hold on to around 38-40 per cent of its initial value after three years and 36,000 miles. The convertible 500C Hybrid performs very similarly at a rate of 38-39 per cent.
