KBB Editors' Overview

By Joe Tralongo, Contributing Editor - Updated Date: 7/18/2014


Many didn't expect a small Italian subcompact to do well in the U.S., but the 2015 Fiat 500 coupe and soft-top cabriolet have confounded the critics. Smaller than the Mini Cooper and Ford Fiesta, the 500's primary attraction are its playful attitude, impressive list of colors and features, attractive price and good fuel economy. Of course, those not interested in cute also have a friend in the 500, that being the performance-oriented Abarth model. Even environmentalists have a seat at the table, thanks to the all-electric Fiat 500e. Now, if only we could get more car companies to see the wisdom of adding color and cleverness to their most affordable models.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for something practical, affordable and efficient but not boring, the 2015 Fiat 500 subcompact is a viable alternative to the Nissan Versa Note, Scion iQ or Honda Fit. The Abarth model will give the Mini Cooper a run for its money, too.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The 2015 Fiat 500 coupe and convertible are unknown commodities, meaning they have yet to earn the track record of cars like the Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit and Mazda2. The 500's diminutive size might also exclude bigger drivers or those who need room for additional passengers.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, the 500 Abarth receives a new 6-speed automatic transmission, while all but the base 500 trim are outfitted with a new 7-inch easier-on-the-eyes/visually sharper TFT instrument cluster (replacing the old analog unit). Streaming Bluetooth and an additional USB port are also new this year.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2015 Fiat 500 subcompact coupe doesn't weigh much, which is why its engine only needs about 101 horsepower to move it along. While top speed and rapid acceleration aren't the 500's strong suit, the 500 can scoot about with relative ease and its go-kart like handling make even the shortest drives feel like a sporty adventure. The 500's steering is precise, the brakes are strong and the manual transmission is so good, it might actually spark a movement back to the days when everyone knew how to stir their own gears. Those who don't care to live in the past will find the 500's 6-speed automatic equally enjoyable. The 160-horsepower turbocharged Abarth steps up the 500's game by a notch or two, while the all-electric 500e makes the perfect urban commuter, capable of traveling up to 87 miles on a single charge.

Favorite Features

INTELLIGENT POWER CONVERTIBLE TOP
The convertible Fiat 500c employs a rather unconventional power top. Instead of folding to expose the entire cabin, the 500c's top rolls back on a track leaving a protective metal frame in place. The top can be opened in just 15 seconds at speed up to 60 mph.

Eco:DRIVE
Dr. Dolittle could talk to the animals and now your 500 can talk to you. Using a flash drive, the 500 can upload data about everything from CO2 emissions to trip information. When plugged into your laptop, the data can be used to help you learn how to drive more efficiently.
