A classic reimagined, the Fiat 500 is an Italian subcompact car that boasts a one-of-a-kind look. Released in 1957 and discontinued in 1975, the charming Fiat 500 has finally been brought back to life in 2007 and introduced to the North American market in 2012. A vehicle that is bold, agile and fuel-efficient, the nifty Fiat 500 comes in four distinctive variants: Fiat 500, a timeless classic, Fiat 500C, the cabriolet, Fiat 500 Turbo, the speedster, and Fiat 500 Abarth, the prodigal child.
Entirely revamped and modernised to meet today's needs and reality, the Fiat 500 brilliantly rose from the ashes. A subcompact car with an undeniable European twist, the Fiat 500 is available in four distinctive variants, all boasting a unique signature stamp. It goes without saying, the new model actually shares several similarities with its forebear which allows it to draw attention from both younger and older generations. While its actual size might not be imposing, the Fiat 500 still has a strong muscular side. The wheels are pushed out to all four corners, the wheel arches are wide and the silhouette seamlessly dives towards the front. For those looking for a strong connection with the outdoors, the Fiat 500C comes standard with a power-retractable soft top that lets you take full advantage of sunny days. A more muscular variant, the Fiat 500 Turbo features several body enhancements, parts and accessories that give it a much more athletic look that its fellow siblings. A natural-born athlete, the Fiat 500 Abarth is the most ferocious and most powerful variant of them all. Moreover, it comes available with either a hard or soft top.

Since its Canadian release, the Fiat 500 smoothly began to draw interest from many potential buyers, enthusiasts and critics looking for a bold vehicle that would provide a great driving experience both in the city and on the highway. Naturally, the compact size of the Fiat 500 allows it to navigate through tight spaces without any trouble. The Fiat 500 and 500C are both fitted with the same powertrain: a 1.4-litre, 4-cylinder engine with close to 100 horsepower and 100 lb-ft of torque. These two variants are also the most fuel-efficient of the lineup. A gutsier model, the Fiat 500 Turbo uses the same engine as the previous two in addition to a turbocharger. This combination generates more than 135 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque which allows the Fiat 500 to provide gutsy acceleration and optimum control. The ultimate edition, the Fiat 500 Abarth, uses the same turbocharged formula and boasts more than 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. In addition to their more ferocious powertrains, the Fiat 500 Turbo and Abarth are also equipped with a much more rigid suspension than their siblings and are therefore much more agile. In any case, these engines may be paired with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Quickly find a used Fiat 500 by browsing our selection of Fiat 500 for sale.
Unfortunately, the price of gasoline doesn't stop to increase and despite the apparition of new, more efficient systems and technologies, some manufacturers are simply not able to offer powertrains that are both frugal and thrilling to drive.

Whether is it mated to a turbocharger or not, this engine allows the Fiat 500 to move swiftly and to deliver great acceleration without frantically swallowing liters of fuel. A car that perfectly blends style, agility and efficiency, the Fiat 500 has got it all. Quickly find a used Fiat 500 by browsing our selection of Fiat 500 for sale.
