If you don’t follow the world of motoring too closely (I don’t blame you), you might be surprised to know that Fiat now owns Chrysler. Yes, in the upheaval caused by 2009’s American Carpocalypse, the Italians picked up Chrysler for a song.
Recently the first offspring of that unlikely marriage have begun arriving in South Africa, namely the Jeep Renegade and the Fiat 500X. Both are built side by side in Italy, sharing the same platform and engines.
We reviewed [link] the Renegade a little while ago and it’s safe to say everyone at the Cars.co.za office was pleasantly surprised by the little Jeep. Build quality was superb and even though the price was steep, we thought that maybe, maybe, the Renegade had enough character to sway a few buyers.
Fast forward and we’ve now spent some time with the rather awkward-looking sibling of the Renegade, the Fiat 500X. Fitted with the same 1.4 litre turbo MultiAir motor borrowed from the rest of the Fiat and Alfa Romeo line-up, the 500X is certainly peppy. It’s an eager little terrier around town and build quality is just as impressive as the Renegade, but somehow it doesn’t feel as refined.
We gave the 500X a thorough once-over in our latest video. Do let us know what you think of the little Italian and whether at about R350 000, you’d actually consider one. While not a bad car at all, the segment that the 500X enters into is a well-established in SA, with cars like the popular Nissan Juke, affordable Renault Captur and, soon, the Mazda CX-3.

The all-new Fiat 500 is here, and it’s got a surprise in store for you… It’s gone 100% electric!
That’s right, the cute little 500 is now only available as an EV. With it, you get a choice of two sizes of battery. The smaller is a 24kWh battery which will give you a range of 115 miles, while the larger one (which we’re reviewing here) is a 42kWh, which will provide you with 199 miles of range.
In terms of the design, on the outside you’ll find a handful of minor updates, but it’s on the inside where the 500’s had a real overhaul, with an all-new infotainment system and a big style upgrade!
The problem is, while it initially looks good, once you get a bit more up close & personal you realise the quality isn’t all that great! So when you’re spending a minimum of £23,000 on one, coupled with the fact there are so many small EVs to choose from these days, is it really think it’s worth it?!

You might recognise the name from the original Tipo of the 1980s, a hatchback designed to rival the likes of the Volkswagen Golf. Being Fiat’s first family hatch since the Bravo, this new one aims to do much the same.
The Tipo positions itself as one of the most cost-effective options in its segment and undercuts most rivals by at least two to three grand. It’s cheap, but is it cheerful?
In this review, we take an in-depth look at the interior of the Fiat Tipo including its boot size, dashboard and back seats. We then run through performance, price and finish up with the all-important verdict – is the Fiat Tipo a good car?

Want a vehicle that is unique, has character, and style? Check out the 2020 Fiat 500X Sport. It has standard AWD, Italian styling, compact size, and unique character compared to some other vehicles in class. The 500X offers some cargo space, although not as much as many competitors. It’s engine is small, but it definitely packs a punch to make for a bit more spirited driving, in addition to the lively feel of the steering wheel.

Here is my review of the Fiat 500 Lounge 2020 (312 facelift) in Avantgarde Bordeaux.
Although I said the first Fiat 500 was the Topolino, which was in production from 1936-1955. The Fiat 500 Nuova is the Fiat 500 in today’s look-a-like world, which started production in 1957. ‘Topolino’ is also known as ‘little mouse’ in English and ‘Mickey Mouse’ in Italian.

The Fiat 500 has achieved iconic status and been a sales success – but that doesn’t mean it’s a good car. In fact, for a while now it’s been off the pace against city car rivals. So does an injection of electrification finally make it better?

FIAT 500e 2018 Car Review
The Fiat 500 is often a two-door, four-passenger, transverse front-engine, front-wheel-drive A-segment city car manufactured and marketed through the Fiat subdivision of FCA since 2007 in hatchback coupé and fixed-profile cabriolet body styles, spanning a single generation — and obtainable in European markets beginning from model year 2016 having its first facelift. The 500 is internally designated since the Type 312 by FCA. Derived in the 2004 Fiat Trepiùno 3+1 concept (created by Roberto Giolito), the 500’s styling recalls Fiat’s 1957 Fiat 500, nicknamed the Bambino — a model that’s designed and engineered by Dante Giacosa with 4 million sold over its 18-year (1957-1975) production span. Translated from concept to production design in the design direction of Frank Stephenson, the 500 features Dante Giacosa’s 1964 breakthrough front-wheel drive breakthrough layout — which ultimately became a market standard, the layout “adopted by just about any other manufacturer inside world” for front-wheel drive
Sally Dominguez and Matt Campbell discuss the Italian’s brand $14,000 city car.

Fiat’s employees have partied hard in 2017, celebrating 60 years since the first 500 was born. As 2017 was coming to an end, we thought it would be good to have our own celebration. Just without the champagne… We were driving, obviously.

Fiat 500 4 year review… https://youtu.be/lSJ9vreia_Y
First announced in May 2006, Fiat previewed an all new four-seat three-door hatchback 500 model in March 2007 – fifty years after the first Fiat 500 was presented. The design of the 2007 Fiat 500 is based on the 2004 Fiat Trepiùno concept.
The new model features a distinctive retro style – following the pattern of the Volkswagen New Beetle and BMW MINI – as modern reinterpretation of Dante Giacosa’s 1957 original rear-engined Fiat 500. Production started in mid-2007 in Fiat facilities in Tychy, Poland, and later in Toluca, Mexico. Numerous trim, equipment, and performance versions are offered with a convertible body style available starting in 2009.
The Fiat 500 automobile platform is the basis of the second-generation Ford Ka.

Smaller than the already “small” subcompact car segment, the #Fiat500 fits into what is known as the micro-car segment with the Smart ForTwo and discontinued Toyota iQ. The 2019 #Fiat #500Turbo remains the cute little city car it was nearly 10 years ago. A new standard 1.4L #Turbo engine with 135 hp improve baseline acceleration and sounds like a miniature version of the #Abarth. Its too bad this latest version is missing modern safety tech features and still suffers from a poor turning radius and bumpy ride quality.

The Fiat 500X, the original Italian crossover, has been updated inside and out with new looks and technology to satisfy a driver’s every needs. It’s available with a choice of three trim levels, Urban, City Cross and Cross, three petrol engines, including two brand new more efficient turbo petrol engines, and now comes with a host of safety assistance systems as standard across the range. The new Fiat 500X is on sale now priced from £16,995 OTR.
Refreshed functionality and more 500 personality
The new Fiat 500X has evolved to become even more modern and functional as it introduces new comfort and safety features, while adding even more 500 family style.
New daylight running lights and LED rear light clusters are standard across the range, bring it even closer to the look of the rest of the 500 family. Standard on the Cross Plus, and optionally available on other trims, are the new LED headlights, made in partnership with Magneti Marelli. The LED daytime running lights give the front of the new Fiat 500X a clear, distinctive visual identity, while at the rear LED light clusters make the car even more recognisable, as well as increasing its visibility and safety on the road. As well as adding unmistakable 500 style, the LED headlights offer more powerful lighting, improving visibility, consume five times less energy than traditional halogens and reduce eye fatigue thanks to daylight-like illumination and covering a wider area. At a speed of 56mph obstacles can be spotted up to four seconds sooner – which is a distance of 100m -than with the standard halogen units.
Reasserting their distinct identities, the new exterior design highlights the two personalities of the model – the new Urban look features an all-new front and rear bumper design to make tackling city traffic chic, while the new Cross look adds new-look protective skid plates for taking on adventures.
Compact outside and roomy inside, its spacious and protective environment is embellished with the use of premium materials, high-quality finishes and handy storage compartments. The comfortable interior is unmistakably Italian in its style, and comes with a choice of seven different finishes in a choice of fabrics and colours, a wide range of seat settings and a roomy boot. The completely restyled cockpit features a new instrument cluster, with graphics that are now even easier to read, together with a new steering wheel which is contoured to ensure better positioning of the driver’s hands, provides perfect grip in Techno-leather upholstery and includes integrated radio controls. The instrument panel maintains its arrangement into three circular elements, in familiar 500 style, blending vintage looks with modern technology. Two analogue dials with speedometer and tachometers are arranged on the sides, while the 3.5-inch TFT display in the middle provides key information to the driver.
Next-generation petrol engines
The new Fiat 500X is the first Fiat model to fit the latest innovative family of turbo engines, designed to strike the right balance for customers between the driving performance and economy. Euro 6D compliant and fitted with Gasoline Particle Filter (GPF), the new turbo engines are the result of over 75,000 hours of virtual tests, 60,000 hours of real-life off-vehicle tests and 5 million kilometres clocked up on roads worldwide to confirm their robustness and reliability.
Developed on a modular structure with 0.33 litre cylinder unit, the new front-wheel drive turbo petrol engine line-up includes a three-cylinder 1.0-litre powerplant that delivers 120hp and 190Nm of torque and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, as well as a four-cylinder 1.3-litre engine with 150hp and 270Nm of torque, in this case combined with six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (DCT).

The 500X is the classic, much loved Fiat 500. But bigger. Fiat’s just given its small SUV a spruce up, so we headed to Italy to see what it’s like.

https://www.motorbeam.com does a long term review of the Fiat Urban Cross which is based on the Avventura which is in turn based on the Punto. The Fiat Urban Cross might not sell in good numbers but is a car which carries a lot of emotion and has superb driving dynamics. It feels built to last and is priced attractively too.
The Fiat Urban Cross is available with both petrol and diesel engine options, the diesel isn’t the most powerful in the segment but has a superb mid-range whereas the petrol boasts of the most performance as it is powered by Abarth.

So we have another installment to the Brutally Honest Reviews.. and ive been so intrigued to see what these cars are like! But the ‘specs’ and the ‘numbers’ put me off driving one because i thought they would be underwhelming and boring..
god was i wrong.
Take everything you love about the 500 hatchback and add more space, a nicer cabin, available AWD, and a higher seating position and what you have is essentially the perfect vehicle for the SUV hungry US market. Buyers wanting a small SUV with an Italian name should look no further, but remember that some more mainstream players offer better refinement and practically, while also being less fun.
As buyers continue to move away from small cars, the even smaller micro car segment has taken a huge dip in sales. Which doesn’t help brands like Fiat who came back to the states in 2011 with the pint size 500 hatchback. A full redesign is in the works.

With its retro looks, the Fiat 500 scores big with drivers who want their car to make a bold statement. It’s a case of form over function though, for those with growing families — the 500’s rear seats, and small boot are too small to seat all but the very youngest children in comfort. That said, if practicality is not at the top of your wishlist the 500 is an excellent choice. It has a smart interior and a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines. A new two-cylinder engine, launched December 2010, offers almost 100mpg. Both hatchback and cabriolet versions of the 500 are available, and for those who crave extra performance, a potent Abarth version with 150bhp is also built.
