Smaller than the already “small” subcompact car segment, the #Fiat500 fits into what is known as the micro-car segment with the Smart ForTwo and discontinued Toyota iQ. The 2019 #Fiat #500Turbo remains the cute little city car it was nearly 10 years ago. A new standard 1.4L #Turbo engine with 135 hp improve baseline acceleration and sounds like a miniature version of the #Abarth. Its too bad this latest version is missing modern safety tech features and still suffers from a poor turning radius and bumpy ride quality.

    My uncle has one. Mainly to go to work and back. He put 100k miles in 4 years on it and it has not broken down once. Very reliable.

    If you need to change the oil just have your buddy lift it then you put the jack stands under it, no need for a jack LOL. I do like Fiat but they aren’t reliable from my experience. They are a blast to drive.

    I’m in the upper 5 foot area and I was very comfortable in the 500 at the Chicago Auto Show, it was really surprising!

    I have the 2014 Fiat 500 Abarth. I LOVE IT. I live in Denver, drive it daily – even in the snow. I commute from Denver to Boulder for work, nearly 100 miles daily. I've put over 67,000 miles on it with no problems, whatsoever – not even the typical interior quirks Fiat is known for. I don't have the problem you're talking about with bullying on the road. I ride I-25 in the far left lane w/ traffic, easily holding 90+ MPH heading out of Denver, on the 15 mile stretch before my exit. Fiat can hold its own on the road. Maybe you just can't drive, huh? =)

    I rented a Fiat 500 to drive on a 500 mile trip. I like the cuteness and frugality it exuded. This car was brand new with 600 miles on the odometer… 200 miles into the trip, driving at 75mph in 70 degree weather, the car quickly overheated and the temperature rose to the maximum. Upon inspection, the coolant boiled itself out of the reservoir; which, was made from two piece of (badly made) plastic pressed together. Who makes a tank that holds liquid under temperature and pressure out of two piece?? Needless to say it was a bad part…a small piece of the larger collection of garbage parts no doubt. Anyway, that experience quashed my emotional attachment to the Fiat. I was glad to get into my Corolla on return home, the security of its reliability was far more fulfilling than the temporary emotional infatuation with the Fiat that overrode my sense of better judgement.

    An idiot who can’t drive a stick! Or use a standard key ignition!
    On my 2nd fiat500 a very good valu and bang for the buck compared to mini
    When I bought into the fiat brand I didn’t expect a luxurious automobile.
    Mine gets 37 mpg on the highway and it’s an Abarth. Lots of zip to merge onto the freeway
    Very safe and stable car as the cars frame is a steel cage with 7 airbags.
    This car gets more attention than any camaro,mustang, or vette.
    America just doesn’t get the 500 they want there gas guzzler SUV and pickups.
    And no the Jeep renegade was not based off of this platform it was based off of the fiat 500X which is a nicer looking car than the renegade

    Seems a tad bit negative… a little biased… I have a n54 335, a wrangler, and an Abarth and I’d say I drive the Abarth more often.

    I have the 2018 500 pop. I then paid a company, 500 madness, to retune (not piggyback unit) the car to 695 level. That's around 190 HP. It reset the turbo pressure limits. This retuned car is a wee little MONSTER. Especially in cold weather, this car is almost too much.

    Even without the tuning, it was more fun that a puppy.

    Please do what you can to get an Abarth. I’d love to hear your opinion.

    Had my last Fiat 500 for 6 years, NO issues at all, just bought a new 2018 500C turbo, $16K. Make fun of it if you want. It's a great car.

    Euh.. In my country they give a 5 year warranty on all Fiat models. Not really sure why you all think they make bad cars? Does anyone of you actually own one?

    European models still uses the 1.4 natural aspirated engines and has a complete refreshed front and rear (led and HID lights)

    Too bad we don't or probably wont have those in North America..

    and for the record.. aside from regular proper maintenance (just with any car) my 120,000 miles 500 abarth never saw the shop for anything else and proven better than the corolla xrs i had (water pump, radiator, cv boot, transmission, and dash light issues at 105,000-125,000 miles)

    You can get these for a lot less than MSRP. A lot. Never get an auto though. And it rules in the city. Beats a Mini for parking and seating position, sight lines. Squirts in and out of small traffic holes.
    I had one for 5 years and 88k miles. Zero trouble, but it had a huge warranty. Liked it so much I bought the 500x turbo with the 6 speed. Again, avoid the autos at all costs.

    I own a 2017 Sport. It is plenty fast, comfortable to ride in and fun to drive. My Beats sound system is great. The car gets an unwarranted bad rap because of the Fiat L model, it is an incredibly reliable car, and really fun. Remember it is a European car designed for city driving. This guy is full of shit.

    Opinions are obviously going to be subjective but I'm still enjoying my 2013 Abarth with 58,000mi now. Tires, brakes, a tail light bulb and oil changes are the only service so far. The only other issue is sometimes the speedo doesn't work for a few miles. For reference, my other vehicles are a sportbike Honda CBR 1000rr, so I know sporty, and a luxury SUV, an all options equipped Hyundai Veracruz Limited. I'm using the Abarth as a daily driver but alternate when I need a change. Me? I'm 5-11 and 220lbs and don't feel that it's too cramped. With the trunk and back seat down, recently carried an inflated snowtube sled, another time a small desk. Some of this reviewer's comments are just personal opinion and not every reviewer is going to have the same taste in cars and that's okay. I'm guessing though many of the FIAT comments are from people who have never driven one. They are actually pretty fun on twisty roads, and are pretty fun overall to drive if you don't have more than 2 people in the car. For the money, I think these are better choice than a miata coupe or minicooper S. That's from spending time inside of all those vehicles, but that's just my subjective opinion.

    People are really way too critical about this car. It's zippy, fun, agile, small and tbh stylish. I don't know is it American privilege because i feel this car is perfectly OK on the motorways. Ya'll have cars the size of the moon over there.
    And face it, Hondas Fit and Toyotas Yaris has nothing on the 500 when it comes to style and fun factor.

    Price a little high though it is an Italian car. I think these are more reliable than the Mini Cooper

    I really want one but I want it to be more reliable, more fuel efficient and have the safety features/features that even a Corolla (which is less expensive than this) should have. These are good cars if you're driving or commuting in the city.
