Let’s talk about the Fiat 500C
Traditionally, car hire in the UK has been somewhat lacking. In the past with many companies being environmentally friendly was low on the list of the hire company’s priorities, and the cost of hiring something half decent was astronomical. However, since being established in 1992, Eurodrive has strived to make those issues a thing of the past, with a list of available rental cars to suit all budgets, purposes, and personalities.
The Fiat 500C is a fantastic car to hire, it’s fun to drive, nippy, eco-friendly, and can squeeze into just about any parking spot! Although the 500C is classed as a convertible, it does have a large sunroof too, making the car a dream to drive on sunny afternoons.
What Does the Fiat 500C Have to Offer?
Well known as a traditional Italian car, the Fiat 500 has been around since the 1950s, allowing drivers to glide around tight, European streets in style. It was originally marketed as a cheap, economical, functional city car, and still thrives on those values today. Such as its biggest rival, the mini cooper, the Fiat 500 has an iconic retro look that thankfully hasn’t been tampered with too much over the years.
The interior of the 500 is as comfortably compact as ever, surprisingly, the Fiat 500C is extremely comfortable for drivers of all heights, there is a handy lever on the seat to alter its height. The back seats also offer more room than is expected of this style of car; they also come with Isofix as standard allowing them to be considered as family cars.
The only annoyance to the driver’s side is the lack of space for the left foot, there is no real place to allow your foot to rest when not in use, this can lead to hovering over the clutch which can wear out over time. Unfortunately, a lot of people and review pages focus on the negative aspects of this car, mainly its tiny boot. Yes, the boot as a given is small, however, the rear seats can fold down almost flat allowing for extra space, perfect for weekend getaways.
What Makes this Car Perfect for Weekly Rental?
The Fiat 500C makes for the perfect weekly rental, it’s a real treat to drive and has excellent manoeuvrability allowing you to effortlessly glide around corners. If you’re looking to hire a car for a weekend away, a company hire car, or as an in-between choice whilst your car is in the garage, it is a great option to consider. The 500C is fuel-efficient, comfortable, and compact.
You can hire the Fiat 500C every week from Eurodrive for as little as £190, making it one of the most affordable, stylish cars we have to offer. Call us today on 01865 715 500 for our Oxford branch or 01235 819 700 for our Didcot branch.
