Eric's Autos: Reviewing the 2017 Fiat 500

Eric Peters on

The base Pop trim comes with all power options including cruise control, a configurable LCD/digital instrument cluster, a 5-inch secondary touch screen and a very good six-speaker Alpine sound system.

That's for just under $15,000.

The Mini's gas mileage (28 mpg city, 38 highway) is about 5 mpg better than the 500's (27 mpg city, 33 highway), but its price tag is also about $5,000 higher, making it another wash.

The Bottom Line


Sometimes the best things going are hidden right before your eyes.
