Fiat (or Fabbrica Italiana di Automobili Torino) has made its triumphant return to North America with a redesigned version of the quintessential city-car that made it famous - the 500.
The 500 has arrived after a successful resurgence in Europe since its revival in 2007, winning coveted awards such as the European Car of the Year Award , World Car Design of the Year Award, and Best City Car.
The Fiat 500 Hatchback comes in three models - the Pop, Sport and Lounge.
All are equipped with a 1.4L engine with the award winning MultiAir technology that enables an output of 101 HP/98 lb-ft torque while still allowing you 6.4 L/100km on the highway and 4.9 L/100km in the city.
Here is a video explaining what exactly MultiAir is:
The 500 is obviously a wise choice if you are looking for vehicle that is good on gas. However, what many don't realize is that it is not only what you drive, but how you drive it that matters. The experts at Fiat have invented a system that allows you to track how you've been driving and teach you how to drive better.
