Didnt really know where to put this but I think the A500 is on Fifth Gear tonight, just checked the "Coming Up" section on thier website.
Yes, they compare the A500, Twingo Sport, Colt and Suzuki Swift. Looks like the Colt is the quickest in the drag race but yuk! No style whatsoever.

    Well Im hoping they give the 500 the thumbs up, they certainly loved the GPA.
    Looking forward to watching it, however the program is usually a turn off for me.

    The only car that would tempt me away from an SS is a Clio 200. By the time I specced one up though, it came to 20k! Fair enough the Abarth would only be 2k cheaper when specced up, but it's still as much fun and cheaper to own

    Review by Which? Magazine



    Yeah to be honest, I have no interest in his opinion.

    A car aimed at 17 year olds?!

    wow your feet are small compared to some of us on here. I forget who else is a size 14 like me, but i've never caught the pedals either...

    I have with my 12's, but I am a woeful driver  :-[ Acc & Brake never clutch & brake, he must be worse than me  :P

    Seats are surprisingly comfy, no aches after the marathon Yorks run on Sunday, I will admit I was surprised.

    Edit -Actually bothered watching the tedious little man and boy did he miss the whole point of the car, I bet he much prefered to review the Insignia  ;D

    Y-A-W-N, god how dull was he.
    Some interesting shots of the car, the video work was pretty good, but he was useless.

    Maybe he should put his teeth in for his next piece!

    The 17 year old remark I thought was quite childish....

    What a boring ba*tard. How the hell has he got a job testing cars? He's about as enthusiastic as a dead dog. There's hope for me yet.

    You know I've not wanted to mention this up until now, but I'll be honest, the positioning of the electric window switches is really bothering me. I just don't know how to resolve the issue. I'm considering selling my car and seeking psychotherapy for the sheer hurt and distress their unusual position has caused.

    I understand your torment Joe, after all "They are in the wrong place!" Nice statement that.

    I think his grey shirt went with the grey review.
    It was 3 minutes in before he said anything positive at all.
    I guess the problem with this is that Which are an organisation that do sort of cold analysis. I think they should stick to washing machines and cars that are there to "do the job".

    Maybe he should stick to written reviews.  He's pretty bland to be honest. :thumbd:  Also I think he missed the whole point of the car and who its aimed at. >:(

    Anyone who want's a fun funky car ;D

    This site show's a whole cross section of people buying it.  For the reviewer to suggest it's only for the younger generation is pretty ill thought out.   ::)
