No, this wasn’t merely a big-engined version of the Fiat 500. Though they share a strong family resemblance, the 600 was launched first and has the benefit of a water-cooled four-cylinder engine. That started out at 633cc, but grew to 767cc for 1960’s revamped Fiat 600D. Being a direct competitor to the Mini spoiled things for the 600 in the UK, but there’s a school of thought that says it’s a better bet than the smaller, less practical 500. And you may never tire of telling people that this was the best selling car of the 1960s... in Argentina.
The FIAT 600 release date is to be announced on Hatchback.
