When Fiat first teamed up with Chrysler several years ago, the Italian automaker decided to bring the tiny, iconic 500 minicar over to the states. Things grew from there as Fiat added a range of flavorful cars, crossovers, and sports cars. However, the lineup now consists of a single model: the 500X subcompact crossover.
The 2021 Fiat 500X has that classic Italian style that the brand is known for but lacks the practicality many buyers expect from an SUV.
The 124 Spider features a quieter cabin with a nicer interior and more trunk space than the Mazda Miata upon which it's based.
Despite vast cargo space, great visibility, and standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, the 500L is awkward to drive, awkward to behold, and impossible to love.
The 500X offers Italian flair but not much utility or value, although its punchy turbo engine and available driver-assistance aids have their appeal.
With its unique mix of Italian style and Japanese engineering, the Mazda MX-5 Miata–based Fiat 124 Spider is a sushi roll stuffed in cannelloni.
Say goodbye to boring with this adorable scoop of Italian gelato—the Fiat 500 is ready to brighten up your garage.
The tiny 500 goes from pipsqueak to badass as the hot-rod Abarth, the heart of which is a raucous 160-hp turbocharged four-cylinder.
With its tiny size, zippy handling, and an EPA-estimated range of 84 miles, the 500e is a fine city car—as long as you don't need to go anywhere else.
The 500L serves as the practical wagon in the diminutive Fiat lineup, but it appears more bloated than stylish.
Grown up but still cheeky, the 500X complements its minuscule sibling, the Fiat 500, by offering more space and all-weather capability while retaining its classic Italian style.
The 2018 Fiat 124 Spider offers attractive design, a well-appointed interior, and the fun of top-down motoring, but its performance is somewhat disappointing..
The Fiat 500L is simply a half-baked attempt at a small wagon, and there are better choices out there, trust us.
If you love the looks, you’ll really like the 500X, but there are sportier and more affordable options out there.
The Fiat 124 Spider is essentially a more refined but less performance-focused version of the Mazda Miata.
The Fiat 500L is purely a budget-minded small family hauler, and there are plenty of better choices available.
If you love the looks, the 500X might be your small crossover, but there are better choices out there.
