If your looking for a basic car with a lot of factory options included in the basic price this is your car..and the Retro look helps with the fun factor..This car gave us so much more for $15000 then the Kia Rio we were looking at..

Why the 2013 Fiat 500?

Why Not the 2013 Fiat 500?

Controls and instruments

Radio is a little confusing and the Speedo is hard to read (So much going on close to it) so I use the Digital Speedo more Trip meter, doesn't function smoothly you have to wait till the window your scrolling by loads completely before you can move to the next window, sometimes it seems to jump windows and you have to scroll around again..not good if your driving

Rear seat room & comfort

Rear seat is what it is..Small but bigger then you think.. I'm 5'9 and there is still leg room behind me..But for any real distance I would think it's better for kids.. This isn't really a "Con" as your buyig a small car for fun and mileage not leg room... You think this is small try a mini-Cooper back seat

Ride smoothness

Small car = jittery ride..Just comes with short wheel bases


A little noisy but as said before your buying a small inexpensive car and they need to cut somewhere, but it's not all that bad..

Powertrain performance

Wouldn't mind a update on the basic engine with a little more horse power


Why not..If your looking to be hauling around 4 adults in comfort look else where ..But if you want MPG and fun round into one..then look no farther
