When musicians disappear, they sometimes reemerge better than ever -- wiser, more confident in their skills, and totally appreciative of whatever advances in plastic surgery occurred during their absence. Bringing this inspiring comeback tale to the auto world: FIAT, with the all-new 500.
Marking FIAT's glorious return to the US market, the 500 is a modern interpretation of the Italian classic, coupling magnificent styling with state-of-the-art technology -- like the first man to surf the internet in a smoking jacket, except better, and more appropriate to be seen in public.
Built with the same time-honored craftsmanship as the original Cinquecento a half-century ago, the iconic design conveys simplicity and strength; in the interests of sustainable mobility, that simplicity and strength is propelled by an all-new 1.4 liter, in-line four-cylinder with blindingly innovative MultiAir tech that delivers greater fuel efficiency and power while decreasing CO2 emissions -- so you can go green while others grow green from envy, plus that questionable burrito they had for lunch.
