2012 Fiat 500
2012 Fiat 500
The retro movement in car design has been going strong for the last several years, buoyed by the success of such cars as the Mini Cooper and the Chevrolet Camaro. The movement's newest member is the Fiat 500, a tiny Italian car that harks back to the original 1957 model. The new Cinquecento (which is Italian for 500) has managed to keep the classic look even as it has grown larger and been updated for modern drivers. The American 500 is a lightly massaged European model with what Fiat calls necessary tweaks for American customers: a stronger suspension, wider seats, and more cupholders. Inside you'll find modern technology with a retro feel: behind the two-tone dash is available Sirius satellite radio and a voice-activated Bluetooth-linked infotainment system. Under the hood is Fiat's 1.4-liter four-cylinder MultiAir engine, which is good for 101 hp. That may not sound like much, but the engine only has to move about 2400 pounds, so the 500 has relatively brisk performance and returns decent, if not stellar, fuel economy. For drivers who don't want three pedals, the optional six-speed automatic can be manually shifted, and it has a sport mode that adds a little bit of spice to the driving experience. Although the 500 is designed to seat four passengers, rear legroom measures just under 32 inches, which means space is tight. The benefit is that, at 139.6 inches, the 500 will fit into almost any kind of parallel parking spot.

All Fiat 500s should be cabriolets. The 500 is so awkward to drive that you might as well peel the roof back, slow down even more, and let in the scenery. I cannot get past the seat height/clutch pedal relationship in any 500, so I'd like to try an automatic transmission. This car can't get much slower, right? At least the folding cloth top distracted me from the ergonomics for a little while.

October was yet another good month for the Chrysler Group, at least in terms of new-car volumes. The company sold some 126,185 vehicles, which not only represents a 10-percent growth over last October, but the company’s best October sales result since 2007.

Chrysler Group plans to show off 24 of its new vehicles modified by in-house parts company Mopar at the upcoming Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. The company chose to highlight eight of those tricked-out models ahead of the show's start of October 30. Almost all of the components shown on these cars are available for customers to purchase from the Mopar parts catalog.

Elon Musk merely dreamed of building rockets and electric cars, the front-passenger air bag wasn't yet mandatory, and the euro currency didn't exist when Americans last had Italian speed on the cheap. Long past its Graduate-fueled prime, the Alfa Romeo Spider bowed out in 1994, and that was it for reasonably accessible Italian driving pleasure. Fiat had made an ambivalent effort to vend its wares before abandoning these shores a decade earlier, and the truth was that its cars hardly kept up with the Alfas even when modified by exhaust systems and other speed parts from the Abarth performance division.
