It was love at first sight. As soon as I clocked the stunning bright blue Fiat 500 I was in love!

Girls, trust me this car is the ultimate fashion accessory, from the stunning cream leather retro but modern interior to the cute shape, this car is a must for every fashion conscious female.

I was lucky enough to try the Fiat 500 for myself, thanks to Donnelly Group, and I must say I was not disappointed.

It has everything a girl could want from a car...and more! The stylish lounge model, which I test drove has so many great features you will want to just drive it 
all day long!

The first thing that caught my eye as soon as I set foot in the vehicle, was the unbelievably stylish interior.

The Fiat 500 lounge model boasts a stunning cream leather interior mixed with a glossy dash which just happens to match the exterior colour of the car. Drivers can choose from a stunning range of no less than fifteen bright metallic colours, sure to make you stand out in this playful yet 
highly practical car.

From start stop technology, which automatically stops the car engine for you as soon as you knock it out of gear, to the stunning fixed panoramic sunroof this car just screams, cute and fun!

The Fiat 500 is very simple to drive, but that doesn’t mean it’s not engaging. It’s zippy in town and the steering is light across the Fiat 500 range, while the handling is 
nimble and fun.

Don’t be fooled by the size of the Fiat, it is much roomier inside than it seems and the boot space is more than enough to fit all those great new shoes and clothes that you will just have to buy!

Other great features in the lounge model include Air Conditioning, remote central locking, electric front windows not to mention the great built-in entertainment system.

The lounge model is equipped with Fiat’s Blue and Me system, which consists of a Bluetooth telephone connection and a USB port for connecting media players to the audio unit.

All the essential tools you need to access while driving are situated directly on the wheel itself so you can control all these features at the simple touch of a button.

Another major feature of the Fiat 500 is just how economical this car is, very low running costs so it ensures you have those extra pounds to spend on treating yourself!

Speaking of saving those extra pounds, the Fiat 500 range at Donnelly Group starts at just £149 deposit and £149 per month based on personal contract hire.
