Fiat 500C review - CarBuyer
On first sight of the Fiat 500, you could be forgiven for thinking you had stepped back in time... Fiat's recreation of its famous 1960s city car is so faithful; you really can park the new and old models next to each other and compare like for like. Following on from the massive success of the 500 hatchback, Fiat wasted no time in removing the roof to create the diminutive 500C cabriolet. It's not a true convertible, though, as only the centre section of the roof folds down, and the window frames on either side remain in place. The range of small and cheap to run petrol and diesel engines from the hatchback is carried over, and unsurprisingly the 500C drives similarly to the hatchback, with light and easy controls. The same cute, retro looks are a big part of the appeal, and a big selling point for the 500.
2012 Fiat 500 Abarth First Drive Review: The Everyman Ferrari
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) There can be no doubt that the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is the everyman Ferrari. Not only is it made by the company that owns Ferrari, but it perhaps more importantly it has that exotic super car Exhaust note that will send a shiver down the spine of any sports car lover. Just as importantly it also has the horsepower from its 2X inter-cooled turbo engine to backup the magnificent Exhaust note. With hardly any weight and 160 HP the diminutive Fiat 500 Abarth will tear up the race track or your local neighborhood street. In the process it will also out a huge smile on your face as you floor the gas and head for your favorite twisty road.

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth - Part 2
A Friday Afternoon Test Drive of the FIAT 500c
It was a beautiful day so I asked my friends at Yark FIAT if I could f-i-n-a-l-l-y test drive the new Cabrio. I love my fully loaded Lounge and its wonderful sunroof, but some days are just convertible, top down kind of days.
The Cabrio I drove was exactly like mine, except it was a convertible. Lots of fun and great exposure to the open air! I test drove it around town and stopped for an Italian lunch and the a little dolce at our local Italian grocery store.
Personally I love the car I have but the sunroof is a must. However the cabrio is a great zippy cute car for someone looking for a convertible. Because of the way the top is made it gives the 500 a little extra European flair!
2012 Fiat 500 Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, newly brought from the european market due to the new partnership of Fiat and Chrysler. The US spec car has been slightly modified including alternate bumpers, a 1.4L 4 cyl engine and 7 airbags standard, as well as other options including a Bose sound system. Similar cars in its class include the mini cooper and smart fortwo. The fiat adds some new flavor by offering a compact and sporty economy car with features such as bluetooth, folding rear seats and a a sunroof with room for 4, base price starting around 15k. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Fiat 500C TwinAir vs 500C Abarth review - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/featuresvideos/262693/fiat_500c_twinair_vs_500c_abarth.html#ixzz1DNJiUFef
We pitch Fiat's new two-cylinder TwinAir against the pinnacle of the 500 range. The Abarth is faster in a straight line, but is it more fun to drive?
Size matters. And for Fiat, it's a case of the smaller the better with its new TwinAir 900cc two-cylinder engine. On the outside, there's little to distinguish the two-cylinder Fiat from any other 500, but as soon as you turn the ignition key, it's clear that there's a very different powerplant under the bonnet.
