Fiat 500 – one of the best for residual value

The Fiat 500 has earned a name for itself in the city car segment as one of the most stylish and economical cars on the market – which in turn has helped it to retain its residual value.

Some may think that the flamboyant and stylish appeal of the Fiat 500 will have adverse effects on its resale price, but they would be wrong, as the 500 delivers both unique style as well as peace of mind when it comes to selling.

The Fiat 500 model in the study was a 1.2-litre petrol variant, which according to AutoTrader, was bought for £9,410 and retains a resale price of £6,275.

It is clear why the 1.2-litre petrol engine has been so successful in retaining residual value as it delivers sub 120g/km CO2 emissions and returns a combined 58.6mpg.

This 1.2-litre variant sits alongside the new and frugal 0.9-litre TwinAir engine in Fiat’s range and may have been chosen instead of the latter as it is still a relatively new engine in the 500 line-up.

The stylish appeal of the Fiat 500 includes a bubble-like body style with a sloped front end and a subtle rear spoiler.
