About the FIAT 500

Following a successful path blazed by Volkswagen and BMW's MINI, Fiat has reintroduced a classic subcompact that achieved legendary status in the '60s, the 500. Announced in mid-2006 and launched in July 2007, the new 500, also known as the Nuova 500 or Cinquecento, was greeted by a quarter-million people at an event that also marked the 50th anniversary of the original 500's launch.

The new 500 gets built in Tychy, Poland, and like the new Beetle and particularly the MINI Cooper, offers a wealth of customization options that mostly impact looks as well as a very strong safety profile. Four trim levels, 12 exterior colors, 15 interior packages, and a variety of exterior decals  allow more than 500,000 individual combinations, so buyers can make the car very much their own. The new Fiat features seven airbags and offers ABS, electronic stability control, traction control, and a hill-holder feature, and it has earned top safety ratings in Europe.

The 500 comes with a 1.2- (68 hp) or 1.4-liter (99 hp) four-cylinder gas engine, the larger of which is available in turbo form (133 or 158 hp) in the limited-edition Abarth and Abarth SS trims, or a 1.3-liter (74-hp) four-cylinder diesel. It's not a speed demon, but the first year's worth of production, 58,000 cars, sold out within 3 weeks of launch in Europe, and the car won a number of European awards in 2007 and 2008.

Fiat has said it will bring the 500 to the U.S., but the current economic crisis has put those plans in question. Other stated plans include production in Italy and North America, a hybrid version, an even smaller, more-efficient engine option, and a convertible, which has already been caught in spy shots.
