The Fiat Cinquecento range was launched in the UK in June 1993, initially with the well-proven 899 cc OHV engine used previously in over 3 million Fiat cars. In January 1995, the 1108 cc OHC-engined “Sporting” model was introduced, providing a sporty alternative to the smaller-engined models. For the home mechanic, the Cinquecento is a straightforward vehicle to maintain and repair, since design features have been incorporated to reduce the actual cost of ownership to a minimum, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Fiat repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Fiat Cinquecento repair manual makes the ideal companion when you’re undertaking maintenance or repairs on your car.
