2012 FIAT 500 Pop 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl 5M)


For years I considered buying a Mini Cooper but every time I drove one the rough ride and heavy steering made me walk away.
The Fiat is much more civilized, especially on bumpy city streets in places like Washington, DC.
The steering is light, making the car feel lighter and more agile than the Mini.
With the ivory colored steering wheel, seat trim and headliner the Fiat is a delightful place to be.
For me, the cheerfulness of the Fiat sold me over the aggressiveness of the Mini.

Best Features

Balanced steering and ride, tight turning radius. Bose sound, Bluetooth. Style.

Worst Features

The seat latches to enter the back seat feel flimsy. A bigger engine would be welcomed.
