Bargain Hunter: Car of the Week
Saturday 13 March 1999
A sexy Italian job
Fiat make sexy cars. Just take a look at the radically styled Fiat Coupe, or the open-topped, though left-hand drive, Fiat Barchetta. Fiat make practical cars too like the brilliant Punto supermini and capable Seicento City car. But in the competitive medium-car sector, the Fiat Marea struggles against the Ford Mondeo and Peugeot 406. Yet the Marea Estate Weekend is distinctive, useful and in HLX trim, very well equipped. So a 1998 R-registered example saving almost pounds 8,000 on the new price and with 12 months free insurance from Ryauto in Stourbridge (01384 393231) is worth considering. There is a choice of colours. Cost pounds 9,995
