Fiat Barchetta Overview
The Fiat Barchetta is classed as a roadster sports car which was produced by the Italian automobile manufacturing company Fiat. This vehicle was in production over two different generations. The first was from 1995 to 2002 and the next from 2004 to 2005. The name Barchetta is taken from the Italian word for small boat. This car was only ever manufactured in left-hand drive which meant that it was very unpopular in the UK. The Barchetta has exceptional handling, good performance and they are reasonably priced second hand. They are quite good on fuel, better than you would expect with this type of car. Reliability is an issue and they are not as comfortable as they look. Does this sound like your experience of the Barchetta?

Fiat Barchetta History
The Fiat Barchetta was first released in 1995 and was built on the same chassis as the Fiat Punto. The 1.8L 16 Valve engine used on the Barchetta was the first time that this particular engine had been used on a Fiat production car. The first version ceased production in 2002 and had a break of two years before the next version was introduced. This was due to the bus building company Maggiora going bankrupt. They were responsible for the final assembly of the first version. In 2004 the second version was released and was only in production until the next year, 2005. This was built at one of Fiat's production plants in Mirafiori. The car had some minor alterations to the first version, mainly to the front and rear ends. Production ceased in 2005.
The Fiat Barchetta was available with a 1.8L petrol engine which offers up to 37mpg which is not to bad. What was the fuel economy like on your Barchetta? Remember to think about the fuel type, age and engine size when considering fuel economy.
