Ask It: Fiat 500 Sport

By Brandon Turkus

April 13, 2011

The day has finally arrived, where we welcome the 2012 Fiat 500 into our test fleet. Our tester, a Mocha Latte (no joke) Sport, is fitted with Fiat’s 1.4-liter MultiAir I-4. Shifting duties are handled by a six-speed automatic, with a do-it-yourself manual mode.

Besides the basic mechanicals, our tester has sixteen-inch alloys, the Blue&Me Bluetooth system, and a Bose stereo. We’ll be hanging out with the little Italian for about a week, and seeing how this auto-equipped 500 differs dynamically from the manual models that we drove at the launch. Feel free to post any questions you may have about this Italian entry to the growing premium sub-compact class.
