Top family cars in SA

Wheels24's Janine Van der Post has gone from a 'SpeedQueen' to a supermom. Check out her list of top family cars.

1. Fiat 500C (1.2)

2012-08-10 09:39
Original Price: £11,210 (R143 488) – Price after three years and 57 936km: £7,150 (R91 520)

The Fiat 500 tops the table for convertibles that hold their value best. The 500 has followed in the footsteps of the MINI by being retro yet modern at the same time. It has pulled off the MINI’s other trick too – being a classless vehicle which appeals to a very wide audience.

This wide appeal is perhaps one of the key reasons it holds on to its value so well – it’s a car in very high demand. Unlike most convertibles, it retains its B and C-pillars, which both adds to the retro-chic appeal and makes it less of a compromise than most convertibles.

This also means the car retains most of its stiffness - most convertibles feel a bit ‘wobbly’ in comparison to a hard-top due to less torsional stiffness - so handles very well.
