Hatchback Cars For 2013 - 06 - 2013 Fiat 500
The 2013 FIAT 500 is a styling exercise that has captivated the attentions of thousands of subcompact hatchback buyers looking for a little retro flair to park in their driveways. The Fiat 500 is a lightweight vehicle that maximizes its interior space in offering up to 30.2 cubic feet of total cargo room. This figure, like the MAZDA2, doesn’t compare well against several other members of its class, but its 9.5 cubic feet of 'trunk' space with the seats up is laudable for such a small automobile. The 500's 101 horsepower, 1.4-liter base motor delivers timid acceleration (and fuel mileage of 31-mpg city and 40-mpg highway), although a turbocharged version of this engine can be found in the 135 horsepower Turbo model and the even sportier Abarth delivers 160 horses from a re-tuned version of the Turbo's mill. Transmission choices for the Fiat include a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic.
