Usually I expect you (as a driver) would follow a relatively simple procedure such as this: Unlock and open door Enter vehicle and sit comfortably Clunk-click (door closed – seat-belt on) Insert key in ignition-slot and turn When engine is running place in first gear Hand-brake off Right foot down And it moves! No, no, no, no … NO! Let us start again … Approach her cautiously; admire her; size her up: give her some respect. Is she going to be an adversary? Perhaps. Or maybe she’ll end up being your fiery bit-on-the-side! She sits there like a crouching tiger, eyeing you, ... Read the complete review

The Coupe has a loyal and enthusiastic owners' web site for a good reason; you get possibly the best value 150 mph 4 seater coupe on the market at the moment. It has unique styling, which sets it apart from other Coupes and dynamics which are as impressive as its looks are striking. Used to its full the front tyres will wear out in a matter of 3-4,000 miles and you may get only 22 mpg, but I doubt you would keep your licence long on the public roads if this is how you drive all the time! Typically you can get 15,000 miles out of the front tyres and 30,000 from the rears. The petrol consumption on the turbo model should be 28 mpg or better; the best I have achieved .

i owned a fiat coupe a couple of years ago and i must say you will not find a more sporty powerful car for your money out there on the roads. i opted for a low mileage 98 plate 20 valve turbo model which at the time had covered only 52000 miles and had two previous owners. the power delivery was very smooth in all gears with very little turbo lag if any made it an exceptional car for quick overtaking. insuring the car was very very expensive at the time as it is a group 20 category vehicle and i would recommend getting a few quotes before you even look to buy the car! i used to average around 25 mpg combined for my motorway and town driving which in todays current ...

Beatiful car, beautiful engine. It's spectacularly quick and handles confidently. It's a shame that such an inspiring package is let down by poor build quality and, from my experience, diappointing customer service from local (Surrey) Fiat delears, Fiat UK and Fiat Italy. I purchased my Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo new in October last year. It was imported from Germany and is one of the last 5 speed models. The fact that it is imported has created problems with most of the dealers I have visited who have wanted to carry out 'additional checks' before doing warranty work on the vehicle. Within the first few weeks the alarm was triggering ... Read the complete review

I'm quite happy to potter around in something sensible now that I've had a couple of years with a Coupe. It is, and I'm sure always will be, the fastest thing I've driven on 4 wheels. More surprisingly, the handling, suspension and brakes are all up to the job, despite being half the price of anything else of remotely comparable performance. Yet more remarkable still I typically got thirty-something to the gallon even when driven quite hard (which was most of the time). I suppose if I had eighty grand to throw at a Porsche then it might be a bit more comfortable inside (or not) but I had no complaints. Look out for used cars with about sixty thousand Read the complete review
