The Fiat 500 has a rich history not unlike that of the Volkswagen Beetle. The original was a small rear-engine car that Fiat produced for almost 20 years. The modern version was introduced in 2007 in Europe and 2011 in America. The diminutive four-passenger 500 is larger than a Smart ForTwo, but smaller than a Toyota Yaris. Fiat offers the 500 in three trim levels ranging in price from $16,000 to over $20,000 with options (convertible models start at $20,000). The 500C model has a convertible inner roof with a power folding cloth top. A fuel-efficient 1.4l four-cylinder engine driving the front wheels is standard on all models. The performance oriented 500C Abarth adds a turbocharger increasing the power output to 160-bhp. Weighing just 2500 pounds, the Abarth is sure to be a pocket rocket. The 500 is sold through a select number of Chrysler dealerships.
