I bought the 500 so I could have a car that would give me great fuel efficiency yet be fun to drive and have a retro, stylish look to it. the 500 has not disappointed me on either front. I absolutely love driving the 5 speed manual.

Why the 2012 Fiat 500?

Fuel economy

getting over 43 mpg's for the life of this car on mostly highway/light suburban type driving.

Interior styling

love the overall interior layout. the cabin is a nice place to be.

Exterior styling

finally a small car with some style. don't have to look like every other econobox on the road.

Controls and instruments

love the speedo/tachometer set up. unique, stylish yet very easy to read.

Ride smoothness

for such a small car it has a nice ride and feels planted to the road

Why Not the 2012 Fiat 500?

Rear seat room & comfort

if you need to regularly have adults sitting in the rear seat this may not be the car for you. the rear seat is fine for kids or even small adults occasionally.
