Originally launched in 1972 as the replacement for the legendary Fiat 500, it settles mainly in Eastern Europe, where many versions are produced under license. The proof: it was sold there until 2000! A great career for the small city dweller, with such recognizable lines.

But the details obviously change, with light bands front and back, very fashionable. Inside, the design is simple but effective, with broad lines somewhat reminiscent of the Honda e.
