Description

The Fiat Cinquecento was a city car launched by Fiat in late 1991 to replace the Fiat 126. The production of the Cinquecento ended in 1998, when it was replaced by the Seicento.

The Cinquecento was available in one body style only, a small, angular 3-door hatchback, with a favorable drag coefficient of only 0.33. It featured several advances compared to older Fiat city cars, including independent suspension both in the front and in the rear, front disc brakes, side impact bars along with crumple zones incorporated in the design and galvanized body panels to fend off corrosion. Steering was by rack and pinion, and although power steering was never offered, the car could be ordered with a number of extras, including central locking, power windows, sunroof (or full-length retractable canvas roof in the Soleil version) and even air conditioning.

In 1995, Fiat introduced the Cinquecento Sporting, featuring the 1.1 L ohc FIRE 54 hp (40 kW) ECE engine and a 30mm drop in standard suspension, 13 inch alloy wheels as standard, colour coded bumpers and mirrors and a tachometer dial. It is the sporting model which gave birth to a rallying trophy and a Group A Kit-Car version.
