You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The mini hatchback with Italian blood, Fiat's 500 offers exotic looks and an abundance of equipment choices, two things not usually found in this class. Configuring the 500 to meet your desires is a breeze so long as a roomy backseat isn't one of them.

What's New for 2015

All models get an info display screen in the gauge cluster, and the sporty Abarth is now available with an automatic transmission.

Choosing Your Fiat 500

The 500 starts out with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder with 101 horsepower, matched to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. A turbocharged version makes 130 or 160 horsepower depending on the model.

The 500 is available in no less than five trim levels:

FIAT 500
  • Pop: Carries all the expected equipment in this class, plus a few surprises like heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth phone. The six-speaker sound system comes with a CD player and iPod interface.
  • Sport: Retains the base engine, but adds a sport-tuned suspension, more aggressive interior and exterior trim, 16-inch wheels and an upgraded Alpine sound system.
  • Turbo: Adds the 135-horsepower turbocharged engine along with upgraded brakes, a spoiler and specific interior trim.
  • Lounge: Equipped like the Pop in terms of performance, but carries a raft of luxury upgrades like premium cloth upholstery, a fixed glass roof, automatic climate control, satellite radio and chrome exterior trim. The optional Luxury Leather Package adds leather seating with front heat, rear parking sensors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. There's also the 1957 Edition of the Lounge, which commemorates the 500's first year of production with period color schemes, badging and wheel designs.
  • Abarth: Packs the 160-horsepower turbocharged engine, plus aggressive styling touches throughout the firmest suspension turning in the lineup. You can even get summer performance tires on 17-inch wheels.

All models can get a TomTom navigation system and a Beats Audio Package with upgraded speakers and a subwoofer. There's also a handful of appearance packages that add subtle character to the 500.

CarsDirect Tip

Our main concern with the 500 is the standard 101-horsepower engine. That's simply not enough power for many buyers, especially when funneled throughout the automatic transmission. A brief test drive in the real world should tell you whether to upgrade to a turbocharged model.
