In some countries Fiat has managed to comer the youth market using its Seicento. This car combines an acceptable degree of accommodation, a driving sensation which makes the vehicle feel quicker and sharper compared to figures suggest, and clean, uncluttered looks.
Regrettably the most popular Sporting version (sold for some time with Michael Schumacher badging) no more features in the range; instead there’s merely a single 54PS, 1.1 litre engine offered. About the credit side this power unit creates affordable driving.
Handling is predictable – there isn’t enough power for any driver to get into challenge with this car-and ride comfort is higher than may be expected in this type of small car.
