2012 FIAT 500 Long Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500 Sport: The Art of Badges

April 20, 2012


One thing our 2012 Fiat 500 does really well, whether you consider it important or not, is nail the aesthetic details. Over the months, I've pointed out/harped on various aspects of the driving experience that competitors like the Honda Fit, Mazda 2 and Mini Cooper do better, but none of those cars have badging that's as cool and artistic as the Fiat's.

Every time I walk up the Fiat and get into it, I see these badges and they make me interested to drive the car again. Now, not everyone is going to be as susceptible as I am to the subliminal messaging, but these are great badges nonetheless.

Any other nominees for cars that have really well designed badges?
