FIAT 500 (Compacts Pt.2) - Everyday Driver
The Fiat brand returns to the US with the 500, so the guys wanted to see
what all the fuss is about. And in this second part of our compacts
comparison, we put it up against the Honda CRZ and Mini Cooper to see what
car offers the most driving fun.
2012 Fiat 500 Abarth First Drive Review: The Everyman Ferrari
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) There can be no doubt that the 2012 Fiat 500
Abarth is the everyman Ferrari. Not only is it made by the company that
owns Ferrari, but it perhaps more importantly it has that exotic super car
Exhaust note that will send a shiver
down the spine of any sports car lover. Just as importantly it also has the
its 2X inter-cooled turbo engine to
backup the magnificent Exhaust note.
With hardly any weight and 160 HP the diminutive Fiat 500 Abarth will tear
up the race track or your local neighborhood street. In the process it will
also out a huge smile on your face as you floor the gas and head for your
favorite twisty road.
Fiat 500 first drive from Consumer Reports

2012 MINI Cooper S versus Fiat 500 Abarth 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Perhaps the car that most closely competes with
the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is the equally diminutive MINI Cooper S. Both
cars are tiny European hot hatches that make driving fun. Both cars are turbo charged and both cars will easily
spin their from wheels when you slam down the accelerator. We also think
that both cars will appeal to the same car shopper. So which of these two
mini-rockets is faster to 60 MPH?
Is it the Brit or the Italian. Check out this video to find out.
Fiat 500 Twin Air Matt Black
The car that Jason Bourne might drive if he had a choice. We couldn't get
in touch with Matt Damon, his answering machine sounded very angry so we
sent Bob off for a drive instead

2012 Fiat 500 Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, newly
brought from the european market due to the new partnership of Fiat and
Chrysler. The US spec car has been slightly modified including alternate
bumpers, a 1.4L 4 cyl engine and 7 airbags standard, as well as other
options including a Bose sound system. Similar cars in its class include
the mini cooper and smart fortwo. The fiat adds some new flavor by
offering a compact and sporty economy car with features such as bluetooth,
folding rear seats and a a sunroof with room for 4, base price starting
around 15k. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

2012 Fiat 500 Sport Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
With the return of the Fiat brand to the states, the 500 is quite frankly,
the most important vehicle introduction if the company hopes to do well in
the U.S. Thankfully, Fiat seems to have pulled off a micro-car that
literally outclasses each of its competitors. Only the larger and more
expensive Mini Cooper has it beat but those of you in need of something
smaller than your average sub-compact should take a look at one.
