2014 FIAT 500 Convertible GQ Edition 2dr Convertible (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I've owned this car for almost 2 year when writing this review.
The good: This car is fun to drive, its eye catching , and people always comments on the sound of the exhaust. If your looking for something fun to drive this is a good catch. The cabrio top is great on non rainy days, really enjoy the air and blasting the beats sound system, which is ample to blast through any wind noise.
The steering and response is there,, it wont disappoint on the steering and grippiness of the road. Once the stock tires wore down i replaced them with Michelen Y rated tires which will last longer.
The stick shift is this car is super easy,, you wont have a problem even if your a novice. And the hill assist is money. If your on a hill and need to go from 1st gear, no need to rev the engine and grind the clutch, the car holds break for you for about 3-4 seconds which is plenty to get going (really nice feature) and if its not your thing, you can turn it off in the settings.
Interior: its a unique design for Fiat so theres not much in the Fiat line to compare it to,, its a nice leather finish to the seats and really compliments the white exterior. I get lots of compliments on the interior design.
Gas milage will vary depending on how you drive it,, if your enjoying that punchy turbo motor,, expect gas milage to suffer,, if your easy on it,, it'll realistically be in the mid to high twenties maybe get into 30s.
Parking assist is money and works as advertised
All the controls are easy to use, reach and understand.

If you want to know some cons:
Might biggest gripe would be the stock radio head unit. Its really cheap garbage. I replaced it with a Kenwood KVT7012BT, which is the best thing you can do. Not only does it allow you to adjust the EQ the fidelity, apps, screen size and capability is just better.
Second gripe would be the headlight power,, i think the illumination is underwhelming.

It really is a nice car I would recommend. I have had zero issue with it mechanically. I had a family of four in it without issue cruising around. And taken sever trips with 2-3 people in it.
