If the Fiat 500 is spectulated to be released in late 2010 early 2011, I would think that the MSRP would be released in October or November... maybe even sooner than that.Agreed. Fiat does not want to price themselves out of the market. Do we have any idea as to when the MSRP will be released?
The prices of the Fiat 500 in the UK market are 7,900 pounds to 9,300 pounds which works out to $12,189 - $14,349 Canadian.I would not be upset if Fiat started dropping some prices, just even estimates.
How does a comparable Fiat 500 in the UK cost?
Wow. You must love Italy a lot, considering that you can get a Hyundai Accent hatch for under $10 grand in Canada.Even with European pricing converted, it's under $20,000 so that's good for me. The Fiat 500 appears that it will be a pretty affordable little car
Do prices generally trend higher in Canada for roughly the same vehicle? I would expect a few thousand more for an Abarth based on other manufacturers (e.g. Golf -> GTI, Mini -> MCS).Dealer in Canada has told me its just under $30k for an Abarth all in.
I'm not convinced that age is any guarantee that anyone will be able to 'drive it right' (sic) but I've driven two Fiat 500's over the course of five weeks in Italy, both with the 1.2 litre gas engine. I can tell you that it is not just a city car, and that it will happily scamper well beyond 62 mph/ 100 kph. I've loaded it up with stuff, and breezed down the autostrada at 120 kph with the air con. on, and it was fine; stable, reasonably quiet and frankly, more competent than many american cars I have driven.If you young people can learn to drive it right, it will be good for your safety too. This is a city car, and probably should not be driven over 60 mph. The airbags are good but that's mainly all you have going for you besides common sense.
Hmmm. If price were the only factor in car buying, nothing on this forum would exist. The Accent is an adequate appliance, but it is not the same class of car as the 500. Having driven an Accent, I think it is $10K well wasted. Just MHO.Wow. You must love Italy a lot, considering that you can get a Hyundai Accent hatch for under $10 grand in Canada.
I do too, but not at double the price.
