2012 FIAT 500 Long Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Prius Pacers

May 04, 2011


Ah, America. You have got to be big to win respect in this country. The Fiat 500 is not big, and there are not yet very many of them, so it gets dissed.

Prius drivers look over at the Fiat 500 on the freeway and quickly decide that they have finally found a car that they do not have to be afraid of. They don’t race you exactly, but instead pace you, so you can’t slide past or even slide over. This is worse than racing, because it forms a rolling road block.

A Volvo cut me off today as well, barging into the slot in front of me as we lined up for an off-ramp. What’s next, a Sienna driver flipping me off in his rear-view mirror?

Am going to have to start driving like an Italian.
