New Car Quick Quote


Between 1957 and 1975, Fiat sold a huge number of tiny 500s, primarily in Europe. Only 10 feet long, with a rear-mounted engine and an optional canvas sunroof, the 500 was ideally suited to the narrow streets of ancient capitals. Americans, however, took little notice of the ultra-economical Fiat.

Inspired by the popularity of the revived Volkswagen Beetle, Fiat introduced Americans to a new 500 in 2012.

And Fiat has placed a premium on fun customization, allowing buyers to fully personalize their 500s.

Both the Pop and Lounge styles also came as convertibles, and all were equipped with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The high-performance Abarth model had a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder that produced 160 horsepower. In 2013, two additional models were added: the Turbo with a 135-horsepower turbocharged engine and a convertible Abarth.
