Used Fiat Coupe (1995 - 2000) Review

For striking and timeless looks, few cars can match the wonderfully styled Fiat Coupe. Well proportioned and athletic it has aged particularly well and still looks fresh despite first being introduced in 1995.

Fiat Coupe (95-00)
Great styling, strong turbocharged engine, handles well, useable rear seats
Reliability issues, dated and poorly finished interior, lacks refinement

New price range:

£17,923 - £25,599

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

For striking and timeless looks, few cars can match the wonderfully styled Fiat Coupe. Well proportioned and athletic it has aged particularly well and still looks fresh despite first being introduced in 1995. It's available with a choice of engines but it's the five-cylinder turbocharged version of the 2.0-litre (badged 20v) that is the most sought after, particularly by enthusiasts.

With keen handling and a smooth ride the Coupe is a good everyday car with two useful rear seats and a good-sized boot. However reliability can be a problem, especially electrical niggles, while the interior isn't particularly well screwed together.

What owners say...

 It just works. Starts every time, never loses any fluids, and runs beautifully. The engine is in prime condition.

 Good sized back seats, boot bigger than you think.

 Really comfy for two, can take four for shorter trips, and a good sized boot for a coupe. 3rd gear is the only one it really needs, 20 to 100mph without a gear change...
