2012 FIAT 500 Long Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Poco Italiano

July 27, 2011


I've been coming down with a case of wanderlust lately. More specifically, I've been dreaming of returning to my spiritual home, Italy. It's been four years since I've been and my Italian is probably a little rusty. And what a great language it is. So this morning, I had the idea of using our little Fiat as a language tutor.

I had these grand fantasies that the voice recognition would speak and understand Italian. Perhaps I could try to use all of the functions on my way into the office. Sadly, it seems like the only feature that can be switched over is the driver information center. Oh well.

By the way, "impostazioni" (pronounced eeem-po-stat-zee-oh-neee) is basically "settings" in English.
