Driving the 2014 Fiat 500 can make you feel like you’re dashing through the streets of northern Italy regardless of where you actually live. Since it was designed to handle Europe’s higher gas prices, the 500 can be impressively efficient, but it is smaller than the average small U.S. car.
The 500 is a city-sized car with seating for four people. It’s available as either a three-door hatchback or a two-door convertible. The drop-top is known as the 500 Cabrio, or 500c. There are five trim levels for the hatch: Pop, Sport, Lounge, Turbo and Abarth. The 500 Cabrio is offered in Pop, Lounge and Abarth trims. Both body styles have a standard powertrain with a four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic are options. Top rivals include the Mini Cooper, though the Mini is a foot longer than the 500.
For the 2014 model year, Fiat engineers lowered the rear seats in all trims to increase rear headroom. New colors and wheel designs are available as well.
The Fiat 500 has a wide and low bulldog-style stance with minimal overhangs. That’s especially obvious in the rear, where the wheels are right in front of the bumper. The front of the car gets a more debonair appearance with trim “whiskers” above a simple slot grille. Below that is a wide intake indicating the car’s sporty nature. The 500c adds a power-retractable cloth top that opens down the center of the roof and folds like a window shade.
Standard features include projector-style halogen headlights, daytime running lights, heated mirrors, a rear spoiler and 15-inch covered steel wheels. The 500 Turbo and Abarth have their own specific front fascia designs, more prominent side skirts and rear air diffusers. You can also get the 500 with options such as 15-, 16- or 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The hardtop 500 is available with contrast colored roofs, a fixed glass roof and a power sunroof.
A colorful cabin is another highlight for the 500, which features dashboard trim that matches its exterior finish. The glossy trim creates a futuristic, space-age look. Fiat’s design choices also impact the driving experience. So it’s easier to change gears from the driver seat because the shifter is located on an extension of the center stack. The bulls-eye instrument panel then puts vehicle information in an easy-to-read concentric layout.
The 500 has 50/50-split folding rear seats and a 9.5-cubic-foot luggage compartment.
In the 500 Pop, which is the base model, Fiat supplies standard features such as cloth upholstery, air conditioning, and a tilt-adjustable leather-wrapped steering wheel with built-in audio and cruise controls. The Abarth trim is distinguished by standard performance seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and aluminum pedal covers. Additional options for the 500 include premium cloth upholstery, leather upholstery, heated front seats, two-tone color schemes and automatic climate control.
The 500’s standard 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine makes 101 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque. In the aptly named 500 Turbo, a turbocharged version of the same engine is standard with 135 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. Both of these units can be paired with either a standard five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. The Fiat 500 Abarth gets 160 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque from its version of the turbo engine. Standard high-performance brakes, a sport-tuned suspension and a specially calibrated electronic stability control system also give the Abarth track-ready handling.
Front-wheel drive is standard across the lineup.
Fuel-economy ratings for the 500 start at 30/38 mpg city/highway with the standard powertrain and manual transmission. The base model with the automatic transmission gets 27/33 mpg city/highway.
Fiat outfits the 500 with standard technology including Bluetooth for hands-free calling, an AM/FM stereo, a CD player, a USB port, an auxiliary input jack and six speakers. Satellite radio and two premium sound systems are optional. The Alpine setup packs 278 watts of power while the Beats Audio system brings a dual-voice coil subwoofer and 368 watts of power. A navigation system with a 4.3-inch touchscreen, plus separate rear parking sensors, are also available.
