    I would consider one if they made a four door.

    It will slot in nicely between the Smart and the MINI.

    Is there a market for these subcompacts? I see a Smart car about once a month so they can't be selling that many of them.

    Interesting insight into the "we need to make it US legal" thing:

    Apparently, the 500 would need a new bumper beam and front fascia to meet U.S. offset standards, and not much else.

    My wife has been calling the Fiat 500 her "new car" for a while now.

    I am pretty sure we will find a reason to buy one if it ever gets here.
