Fiat 500

Year: Starting at $16,000 MPG 31-40 Currently Fiat’s only offering to the U.S. market, the Fiat 500 is an Italian answer to the need for an ultra-compact city car. Previously only available as a 2+2-seater, the new L model sports five seats and five doors and is expected in North America in early 2013. Fifth seat or not, rear legroom is tight in this little automobile. Of course, space isn’t the main selling point of the 500. It shines in styling, maneuverability, and fuel economy. Better yet, it is available as a convertible, and Fiat will soon offer a new Turbo model with a beefier engine and a Beats by Dr. Dre sound system for your increased aural pleasure. The 500 earns up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, depending on the model, and up to 30 miles to the gallon in the city. The interior is distinctive and almost minimalist, with available two-tone seating and a surprisingly uncluttered two-tone dash. If you have a little extra money to spend, a Gucci model is available with the iconic red-and-green stripe adorning the exterior, the seatbelts, and the seatbacks. The seats are also embellished with Gucci leather bearing the fashion house’s logo in either black or white. The 500 is the perfect Italian automobile for young city dwellers. …
