Fiat 500 was tested by Motor Trend and surprisingly they love it.

This video should convince you that the Fiat 500 is a good buy if you want a stylish, small, fun, economy car. But if your looking for power, this is not it unless your willing to pay for an Abarth edition 500.

What I liked about the review is that it actually has some valuable criticisms of the car - its certainly not an unqualified love-in! They think the acceleration is slow as well as the braking (and they detect a wiggle on a hard brake as well). That being said, they appreciate the handling and technological sophistication of the little critter.

Agreed. Honest observation and criticism is valuable. Its also nice to get a sense of the dynamics of the car, rather than focus on the styling issues. Don't get me wrong; the stye and design of the car is important, but we've had far fewer reviews and discussion about how it drives.

Funny that the engine is a 'tiny 1.4', making 101 hp. My 1979 Rabbit GTI was a 1.5 l and made 75 hp.
