FIAT 500 LOUNGE 1.2 PETROL - great retro looks and pleasant drive. I mainly drive in the city. However I am not happy with the consumption. Supposed to do 44 mpg urban and I am averaging at 31.6 mpg. I was told by the fiat dealer that the car gets full efficency after 2/3K miles. I am almost there but no sign of improvements. do car need to run in these days?? I was also told it might be to do with my driving, take the point but even with extra careful driving I am going up to 32/33 mpg max. The other thing Im not too impressed is the 2 seats at the back (my old M reg fiat 500) could seat 3 with seat belts and the getting in and out from the back seats is not as practical as the older car. booth is generous for a mini car.
