2012 FIAT 500 Pop 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I traded in my Elantra for the FIAT and so far I'm extremely pleased with the car. It is a very coherent design, with everything I need and nothing I don't. I'm tall (6'5") with long legs and the Pop without sunroof fits me perfectly. A very tight little car with peppy performance IF you understand how/when to upshift and downshift to take advantage of the small engine. I have a base car with no options except alloy wheels and I'm amazed at all the features FIAT built into this car.

Best Features

Interior and exterior design, ease of entry/exit, good seats, nice materials, willing little engine with good gearing for my area (mostly flat Texas roads). Simple can be beautiful, and simple is easy to live with. I smile every time I see it.

Worst Features

No car is perfect, but so far I can't think of anything annoying enough to change. Making a car this nice for so little money is not easy, and FIAT has done a great job.
