Driving Impression

The base 101-horsepower engine is not what we’d call perky. To get the most out of it, sometimes merely what you need, you have to drive it like an Italian. Repeatedly run it to redline. Fortunately it likes that (as does the frisky Ford Fiesta); it’s flexible, lively, and even shows a bubbly enthusiasm for such abuse. It doesn’t feel harsh up there. In fact there’s a lively rasp that appears at 3000 rpm.

But even wringing it to redline (or ringing it to redline) won’t get you to sixty miles per hour in any time less than 10 seconds. And if you have a passenger, not even a fat one, think twice about passing uphill on a two-lane. Get a good running start.

The meaty electric power steering sometimes feels like there’s no power-assist at all. This isn’t necessarily bad, just not direct or nuanced. We got seat time in a Pop with the Sport package, bigger 16-inch wheels and stiffer suspension, and the ride still wasn’t harsh.

In the racy Abarth, the wider tires give it more grip and confidence in corners, without affecting the ride The tweaked suspension increases the quickness of the handling and reduces body roll.

The Abarth’s 5-speed manual transmission has closer gear ratios than the Pop, and in the first three gears you can really feel it. Your hand feels good on the 5-speed lever, because the shifting is light and precise, but your left foot feels awkward, as the clutch pedal has a long stroke and travels a bit before it grabs. The small footwell doesn’t help.

There’s a 6-speed automatic transmission available, never mind that it would be a sin to own an Abarth with an automatic. But if you do, there’s a sport mode to sharpen the shifting and throttle response.

The gearbox in the Abarth makes you want to hammer the throttle. Which you want to do anyhow, because of the remarkably raucous exhaust note. The Abarth is a car for people who want to be seen, attracting attention not only with its cheeky aggressive song, but with its bodywork and stripes.

Walk Around

The Fiat 500 manages the hatchback design without looking awkward. Despite its inherent uprightness, the 500 can look almost svelte. There’s a certain amount of bulk that comes with crash requirements, but they’re buried in the lower third of the body. The sides slope upward, the rear glass slopes forward, presenting a modern twist to the classic Cinquecento shape that’s now 60 years old.

Button-like headlamps and a thin mustache trim bar add character to face of the 500.

The Cabrio maintains the same roofline, because only the flat panel in the roof is fabric, offered in several colors, including a couple startling ones. Because the doors and rails are unchanged from the hatchback, with a trunk lid replacing the rear hatch, the Cabrio is structurally rigid.

Interior Overview

Editor:

“”

The Fiat 500 offers a stylish interior from inexpensive materials. Creative Italian design takes a simple and clean instrument panel and adds bits and pieces of body-colored metal, making the final effect pleasing to the eye. It combines playful with practical in a manner that German, Japanese, Korean and American designers must envy.

Italian designers got as much interior space as they could out of the car’s dimensions, but it still falls short compared to the Fiesta, Spark, or Mini. The seats have a good contour but are short, firm, and high. That makes the car feel bigger than it is, from the view out the windshield, but also makes it feel smaller because there’s less headroom.

And it’s miniscule in the rear. That’s why Fiat came out with the 500L, which has excellent room in back. But it’s boring, and doesn’t share the spirit of the 500.

Summary

The Pop is a good value; all it needs is a set of cool wheels and it’s as much fun as you can have in a new car for the money. The Abarth, thanks to reduced prices, is now a contender, with its turbocharged 160 horsepower, tight gearbox, quick handling and acceptable ride. But because of the tiny rear seat, the Fiat 500 is really only a car for a single person or couple.
