CARBARN | Fiat 500 (2012) | The 2012 Fiat 500 is a two-door subcompact hatchback available as a hardtop or convertible 500C. Both body styles are available in Pop and Lounge trim levels, while the hatchback adds a Sport trim midgrade. The Convenience Package (standard on the 500C) adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Fiat's Blue & Me Bluetooth phone connectivity and an iPod / USB audio interface. The Fiat 500 Sport gains 16-inch alloy wheels, firmer suspension tuning, retuned steering, slightly different styling, a roof spoiler, foglamps, sport seats, cloth / vinyl upholstery sports and the Pop's two optional packages. The Safety & Convenience package (automatic transmission required) includes automatic climate control, a compact spare tire and heated front seats.


The Abarth also has the expected exterior and interior tweaks, Including front and rear fascias unique, Abarth graphics / Emblems, aggressively bolstered sport seats, a sport steering wheel stitching and red accents throughout the cockpit. EPA-estimated fuel economy stands at an excellent 30 mpg city/38 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined with the manual transmission. The 2012 Fiat 500 comes standard with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, a driver knee airbag, front side airbags and side curtain airbags.


A Lounge 500C stopped in a still solid 124 feet. In government crash tests, the 500 received three (out of five) stars for overall crash protection, with four stars for overall frontal protection and a disappointing two stars for side protection overall. While the Fiat 500's retro styling screams "Mini fighter," its interior raises the decibels even further. Behind the hatchback's backseat you'll find 9.5 cubic feet of luggage space, considerably more than what's Offered by the Mini.
