Entries in Fiat 500 (6)


Fiat 500 ripping up the sales charts in Canada; Not so much in the U.S.

Last week Chrysler Group LLC announced that the Fiat 500 likely won't hit their 50,000 unit sales target for the United States. So it got me thinking, how's the 500 doing in our country?

Not bad. Not bad at all. In fact so far this year 3,064 500s have been sold in Canada, compared to 7,982 in the U.S. For a market that's about 10% the size of the U.S. it's clear that Canadian's have fallen for this Italian sweetheart.

So how is the Fiat 500 stacking up against the MINI Cooper, it's cloest competitor, at least conceptually?

Reno Foti of Toronto, ON is one of the very first people to take delivery of a Fiat 500. In fact, according to Downsview Chrysler Reno is the first owner of a Fiat 500 Prima Edizione in North America. Pretty cool stuff.

Reno picked up the car on Monday and we had to ask. Does it live up to the hype? Is there anything not to like?
