March 22, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

After a thorough, in-depth evaluation by the staff at Autotrader, the 2016 Fiat 500X earned a Must Test Drive award.

“The Fiat 500X is a baby SUV that’s a bargain, but can feel like a luxury ride too,” said Autotrader. “This model has plenty of high-end options like rain-sensing wipers, a blind-spot monitoring system and rear cross-path detection, all of which add to the premium feel.”

As the new crossover in the FIAT family, the 2016 Fiat 500X expanded the reach of the FIAT brand in North America by offering a unique combination of attainable Italian style, technology and advanced all-wheel-drive capability.

“The Fiat 500X is the brand’s first all-wheel-drive vehicle and continues to gain traction in the marketplace with sales up 52 percent last month,” said Olivier Francois, Head of FIAT Brand, FCA - Global. “In this ultra-competitive small crossover segment, we are honored to have the Fiat 500X receive the Autotrader 2016 Must Test Drive Award.”

The Autotrader Must Test Drive Awards (Must Test Drive - AutoTrader.com) is a uniquely consumer-driven awards program designed to highlight 10 vehicles that car shoppers must see to believe. Selected vehicles are ones that can change the way a consumer perceives the model or even the entire brand.

The awarded vehicles are chosen based on a diverse set of criteria outlined by Autotrader’s editorial experts, who log thousands of miles test driving the latest cars, trucks and SUVs on the road. Consideration is only given to vehicles that car shoppers can buy at the time of the award announcement; are of the current or next model year; have a base price under $75,000; offer significant value for the asking price; and scored no lower than a “four” on Autotrader’s five-point scale. With the seal of the Autotrader Must Test Drive Awards on them, these vehicles are truly unexpectedly good.

Reimagining The Fiat 500, Maxi-Style



Reimagining The Fiat 500, Maxi-Style

It was probably 15 years ago that a little Fiat 500 emitting the most unnatural of sounds overtook me coming out of a Shuto-ko toll booth. There was a big ‘Powered by Honda’ sticker across the back window, which I believe explained why it sounded exactly like a high-revving Japanese bike engine. It was so fast off the line and it just machine-gunned through the gears leaving me absolutely stunned.

I’ve never seen that car again, nor have I been able to track it down online. But now I think I’ve found the next best thing: the Team Ciociaro Corse 500 Maxi.

FAP Tychy 2011



When talking about city cars with Italian flair, there's nothing that can come close to the Fiat 500 crown's. We're referring to the Fiat 500 Type 312, which is in production since 2007. Fast-forward the better part of 8 years since the modern Cinquecento launched and here we are today, in the presence of the 1,5 millionth example of the breed.

On November 10, the Tychy plant in Poland produced example number 1,500,000 of the Fiat 500. The car in question can be admired in the photograph above, and it's going to be delivered to its new owner in France. Roughly 8 years and 4 months after the 21st century Cinquecento launched, the Fiat Group couldn't do anything better with its most iconic model other than a giving it a minor facelift.

We beg your pardon, but don't automakers usually come with an all-new generation after 8 years of continous production? Not the Fiat Group it seems, as proven by the 2016 Fiat 500. Other than the production facility in Tychy, Poland, the Panda-based runaround is also assembled in Toluca, Mexico.
