The Fiat 500 was once relegated to the annals of history as a sytle icon of the 60’s and 70’s. The car was well known for its cute and contemporary design and could be seen on the streets parked in the smallest spots and in front of trendy restaurants and bars.
The first version of the car ceased production in 1975 but Fiat decided to bring out the new version of the Fiat 500 in 2007, after they came up with a complete new design for the car. The new car did resemble the old iconic version but was much more up to date and safety conscious, as well as being bigger the the original version.
Some people said that the new Fiat 500 would never replace the old one with its iconic 60’s styling, and in a way they were right, but all new versions will never be the same as the old and there is still a market for this great little car.
The new Fiat 500 cars retail at between $15,500 and $19,500 plus costs for added extras. The cars are 2 door with sports tuned suspension and a 5 star safety rating, designed for car enthusiasts in particular. The car comes in a 5 gear manual or 6 gear automatic transmission versions.
