    Should I get a brand new fiat 500 or brand new vauxall Adam?
    I passed in my and I found a place where you do monthly payments (They're about 198 a month) and the insurance is free for the first year...

    Thanks !

    Are these through Marmalede? Which engine and trim levels are we talking off here?

    As for which car, if it is indeed a new car you want then the Fiat is still the better car of the 2. The downside is space is at a premium. We almost bought one for my eldest daughter but decided against it after a test drive.

    I would strongly suggest you test drive both cars extensively before putting money on one and make sure you read the fine print on the finance and insurance agreement.

    Check the price of insurance for yourself after one year - as the contract will be for three/four years, and one may be significantly more next year than the other.

    I'm pretty sure you have to be 21+ to get that one year free insurance, Best check the ToS first.

    Have you considered a second hand 500?
    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...fiat?logcode=p

    You'd say about £5000 upfront and then another £5000 in depreciation (yes the second hand one will still depreciate but much more slowly)

    Or is it a lease?
