    Fiats are getting smaller, but they are still doing the 4 door. What concerns me is that Minis’ keep getting bigger and loaded with gunk a real driver doesn’t want.

    Not really, the new Fiat 500 emulated the old 500, updated, modern lines but similar in size. The new new Fiat 500x is …bigger, too.


    Original Fiat 500:

    Its revamped version:


    The revamped revamped 500x:


    On this link: Their range, in the UK at least


    I take it from Payne’s sneery cartoon Fiat is trying to break into the US market?
    Another misconception in the US about European cars….while there are indeed more compact cars than in the US, European cars are indeed getting bigger, broader, longer.

    Perhaps they’re getting ready to rebrand it as the Maxi.

    What’s it take to ease Obama out of Henry’s Grandma Moses Toon work?

    A car. Absolutely any car.

    Fiat saved Chrysler by buying them essentially and forming the FCA group. It is logically that they try to sell their cars in the U.S. since they are absolutely no competition to the Chrysler models (size).

    By the way: if you want to buy a “real” small Fiat get the “new” 600 which is very small, spartan, efficient, cheap and therefor the true successor of the old 500.

    These are the cutest cars out there! I’d like to own one but I have a feeling they are not well made. I was looking one over the other day and the paint on it seemed thin. There were scratches on the paint that revealed that.

    Pfft. Everybody knows you need to buy a three-ton SUV so that all the other idiots driving three-ton SUVs don’t turn you into a nasty smear on the pavement when they smash into you while texting.

    I joke about driving a stretch Mini, the Clubman. I can get two people in the back and still have room for some groceries.

    My ’56 Ford was a great car, my ’59 that my folks dumped on me was a piece of junk. I think they were anticipating keeping “up” with Fiat of the day. Fix Or Repair Daily, was understatement on that ’59!


    As to “size” my Lotus is comfortable up to about 6 footers, if they’re skinny, but much girth, and you’re stuck, literally.

    Oh and I think I’d get banned if I told the PONTIAC one.

    Loved the Fiat 124 Sport back in the 1970s very similar to the BMW 2002. Fun to drive but unreliable
