Retro looks are just part of the 500's appeal. It's very easy to drive, with incredibly light steering. It is perfect for driving around town, while the larger 1.4 petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines are more than capable of sustaining motorway cruising speeds. Standard equipment on the entry-level Pop models is quite basic, but the Sport and Lounge versions add extras like Bluetooth phone connectivity, air-conditioning and 15-inch alloy wheels. Room for those in the front is plentiful, but don't expect much space in the back.

The 500C isn't really a true convertible, as it's only the centre section of the roof that folds back - think of it more as a car with a big fabric sunroof. It has the same retro looks and engine line-up as the hatchback, and the driving experience is virtually identical, so the appeal is still strong. The 500C is quite expensive, especially when you consider that the standard car is already pricier than many of its rivals.
