    Fiats on the Prowl....

    Road testing of the 4 door, 500. Not bad.

    They stopped for lunch in Fenton.... I followed them and took this and another shot.

    The 500L is exactly the best looking car out there.

    I think using "prowl" in the head-line, should be reserved for posts about Fiat bringing back the Plymouth, nay, Chrysler, nay, SRT, Prowler...

    Thanks for the photo's though.

    I had high hopes in Fiat, especially after the Chrysler tie-up, but after seeing the 500L, I lost it all. Perhaps some North American brands will survive in the long run...

    There is NOTHING "Wrong" with the 500L...just like theirs nothing "wrong" with the 500, which is selling like hot cakes and is infact more "Reliable" than that other "Mini" car brand....

    The 500L will most likely not Handle better as the comparable Mini but it would be more Practical. the 500 already offers more interior space than the Mini despite being a much smaller car.

    There's nothing wrong with the FIAT500L: it will become a world-wide best seller.

    Are they going to import these from the plant in Yugoslavia? It will mark the triumphant return of Yugoslavian cars to the US!

    You're welcome. I thought that "prowl" would be received better than this. Sorry.
    Its decent enough looking. I thought that it would get better mileage, based on its small size.

    Been seeing a few of these 500L's in my neck of the woods (even had a up close encounter with one on I-75 awhile back. Should be an interesting entry and I think the first ever built in cappuchino maker (for the Euro versions) is a inventive touch)
