Fiat 127 Overview

The Fiat 127 is classed as a supermini car which was produced by the Italian automobile manufacturing company Fiat. This vehicle was in production from 1971 to 1983 and was brought in as a replacement for the Fiat 850. This car was eventually replaced by the Fiat Uno in 1983 and it was the first ever small family hatchback to be released by Fiat. These little cars were seen as having good little engines and being fairly reliable. Their replacements are cheap but also seen as short-lived. They are not too bad in terms of space for 4 but not so for 5. They are pretty good economically although there are not too many on the roads these days. Does this sound like your experience of the car?
