2012 FIAT 500 Long Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Fits Me to a T

May 10, 2011


Last night I drove our Fiat 500 Sport for the first time.

Today I want to buy one.

I've had terrible lower back problems for the past couple of years, and I after a few miles even the most plush seats in super luxury cars can make me squirm uncomfortably.

Not so with the little Fiat. It was as if the seat was fashioned out of a weight-absorbing sling, while the seating position allowed me perfect access to the pedals, steering wheel and center-console controls.

Can't tell you the last time I did my 100-mile round-trip commute in such comfort.

Crazy, no? I hardly believe it myself.

Better drive it again tonight, just to make sure...
