2003 Fiat Seicento Sporting 1.1i from UK and Ireland
Nothing of as yet.
For a 1100 engine I am surprised of the performance this car has!.
The car is quick from 0-50mph and I even hit 115mph with three people in it.
The fuel comsumption is brilliant.
Recently put shell optimax and have noted a slight improvement in performance and mpg.
Handles excellent with minimal tyre screech in corners, considering how light the car is.
The sporting models have a close gear ratio which means a constant changing of gears and high revs.
I would recommend this car to all ages and looks very good when modified.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi I find 115 MPH very hard to believe with 3 people in so your claiming that has the same top speed a as 1.6L 16V Renault Scenic which has double the BHP and weights about 400 KG more I don't think so.

Hi there, I did hit 115mph, although it did take a while! 0-50 mph would keep up with 2 litre cars.
I have modified the car which might of contributed a little to the performance, ie exhaust, etc.
Sounds like you Want a race? would be much obliged with your Renualt.

Hi, its nice to hear such enthusiasm for a little car, I have been thinking about buying one myself. I just thought you should probably have your speedometer checked, or check the size of wheel you´re running, because the most powerful production seicento, 1.1i, is only capable of 93mph (see any official spec list), so even with an ideal load, perfomance air and exhaust tuning and a long steep hill, I can´t imagine your car could eek much past 100mph!!! dream on dreamer...

I have recently been in my mate's Seicento sporting and we hit 100. There's many factors to consider. It's a bit short sighted to just go on what the paperwork says if you don't know what the circumstances were when the car hit that speed.
The Seicento would beat the Renault in a race if drivers were of equal capability.
