The Ultimate Small Car of of 2012 by Jan from Phoenix on 03/09/2012. Trim: 2012 FIAT 500 Sport Hatchback, Owned less than 1 year.
37
Pros: The Fiat 500 Sport gets great gas milage per gallon. I am getting 30 mpg in the city. It is stylish, fun to drive, and has get up and go on the highway. The front sets are comfortable and the hatchback is convenient for shopping. I drove VW bugs for years and I prefer my Fiat. I feel safer with the 7 air bags, the acceleration is great and it handles wonderfully.
Cons: The Fiat 500 Sport. did not come with a spare tire. Instead it had a can of air to fix the tire and a jack kit. The back seats are a little small. When they lay down to allow more room in the cargo area they do not lay flat.
Overall review: Overall the Fiat 500 is a great car. If you are looking for good gas economy, a sporty look, a great Bose stereo, a Tom Tom, on the wheel blue tooth capabilities,and a fun drive. It suits single people and couples with a few small children. The interior is classic and very handsome. Comfort and economy, fun and convenience along with safety are things I like best. Did I mention mine is Red Russo, Oh momma mia it's beautiful.
