Pros

Light on fuel and really not so slow around 2nd gear corners (Under 50km/h)

Cons

Bad turning circle, not a performance car. Avoid the term 'turbo' used in its title.

Very Underrated — 1.7TD Its got a good suspension and handles very well around corners, but the turning circle is atrocious. The engine is far too weak and runs out of shunt in the higher gears. The gears are nice for tight bends, but at 120km/h, it is at 3500rpm which is not desireable. It doesn't pull too well in 3rd and 1st is really really low. But it is gr8 in town and light on fuel. This car should have been built as a flagship because it has a beautiful profile. The 1.6 petrol seems to be a really good, nippy car that most can afford. This is a very under rated model.

Great Car — Acceleration and handling good and brakes still in top condition. The boot are little bit to small, at the moment only my soundsistem fit into it. Went to Nelspruit last weekend, 19.27km per litre. Blow me away, Great fun to drive !

Fiat Could Do Better By Sipho

It is not all that bad. The perfomance side is weak and I am even think of tuning it. Gas mileage is low. The interior is nothing exciting for me. It has its moments when it is fun to drive. Read More
