2012 Fiat 500 Sport Road Test and Review
2012 Fiat 500 Sport Review: Introduction
Unlike its previous partnership with Daimler, there have been plenty of positive signs for the Chrysler Group in just the first two years of its relatonship with Fiat including new or updated products with much-improved interiors across the board and, in most cases, better powertrains. While the Italian automaker has helped inject better styling into Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep products, this mutual relationship also saw the 2012 FIAT 500 go on sale early last year bringing a fun and attractive small car to Chrysler dealerships. As the first of a few confirmed Fiat and Alfa Romeo models making their way back to the United States market, the 2012 Fiat 500 nails the classic styling and small size of the original, but we spent a week in one for this road test and review to see how it fares in the fun-to-drive category.
