Review Of The Fiat 500

845 words - 4 pages

According to "U S News Best Cars", the 2014 Fiat 500L is ranked #3 of 14 upscale small cars. Their criteria included test drives, safety data, examination of reviews and reliability. This is a good-to-know considering the brand took a 28-year hiatus from American shores!

A larger model, the Fiat 500L debuted in 2014. This svelte 4-door hatchback seats up to five people. When the rear middle seat isn't occupied, it folds down to reveal a convenient arm rest and cup holders.

The 500L, with its turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, demonstrates sufficient power for tootling about town. Although it is built with a 6-speed manual transmission, a 6-speed automated manual transmission is obtainable. Not to worry, whichever transmission you choose, this little gem is feisty on the giddy-up-go.

You can choose from 15 vitalizing colors including: giallo (yellow), verde olive (olive green), mocha latte (beige), rosso (red), argento (silver) and more. Finishes include nonmetallic, metallic or premium tri-coat. Plus, you gotta love the signature Fiat mustache/whiskers on its nose!

The frugal Fiat 500 nailed the #1 spot on the UK list of "petrol-driven models with lowest carbon dioxide emissions", as published in the "Guide to Fuel Savings".

Now that the Italian icon is back on American roads, the 2014 model secured an EPA rating of 24mpg in the city, 33mpg on highway and reduced CO2 emissions of 10%.

Options, you get options! Fiat 500 offers a whopping 150 accessories to choose from! How about buttery-soft leather seats? Better yet, why not heated leather front seats? Don't let the sun shine on your custom paint job; get a car cover to protect your Fiat. No doubt you'll need a set of custom floor mats with the 500 logo. And, who doesn't need a chrome shift knob? Happy accessorizing!

A few standard accessories include: automated manual transmission, Bluetooth connectivity, seven airbags, dual-zone climate control and tilt/telescopic steering column. Want more options? Consider Sirius satellite radio and sunroof.

The dashboard in the Fiat 500 has eye appeal. The gauges are colorful and instinctive. Before taking a test drive, take a minute to locate the door lock button on the dashboard. Hint: Look by the hazard lights.

The back seats fit little people quite nicely, but due to limited leg room adults may not be comfortable on an extended road trip. For optimal use, back seats recline and/or drop the rear seatbacks and use...
