2014 FIAT 500 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Fiat 500?

The 2014 Fiat 500 is a two-door subcompact hatchback that competes with the Mini Cooper, Scion iQ and Smart ForTwo. It's available in Pop, Sport, Lounge, Turbo and Abarth trim levels. The soft-top 500c and all-electric 500e are covered separately.

What's New on the 2014 Fiat 500?

For 2014, the Fiat 500 has an updated front passenger seat with seat-position memory, a new inboard armrest and a lower position that makes for an extra inch of headroom.

How Does the 2014 Fiat 500 Compare to Other Subcompact Cars?

The Fiat 500 Turbo has better ride quality and fuel economy than the Mini Cooper S. However, all Fiat 500 models, like the Mini, recommend premium gas, a rarity in the segment.

What Features in the 2014 Fiat 500 Are Most Important?

The Fiat 500 comes standard with a 101-horsepower, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The Turbo edition upgrades performance with a 135-hp, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The Abarth trim adds even more with up to 160 hp thanks to a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder. The 500 Sport and 500 Turbo feature a sport-tuned suspension, and the 500 Abarth has a performance suspension.

Significant standard features include 15-inch steel wheels, a rear spoiler, power-adjustable heated side mirrors, dual chrome tailpipes, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and speed controls, a 50/50-split folding backseat, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, and a CD stereo system with a USB port and MP3 jack.

Available features include a power sunroof, a glass roof, fog lights, 15- or 16-inch aluminum wheels, leather upholstery, sport seats, automatic air conditioning, Beats by Dr. Dre audio system and a TomTom navigation system.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, seven airbags, an electronic stability system and active front head restraints. Rear parking sensors are available.

Should I Buy the 2014 Fiat 500?

The 2014 Fiat 500 is a great choice if you value plentiful standard features, responsive braking and cost-saving gas mileage with the manual transmission. In addition, all models except the Abarth provide a narrow turning circle, and the Turbo and Abarth trims deliver quick acceleration. However, excessive body roll, a choppy highway ride, uncomfortable front seats and poor visibility are all marks against it. It also has a narrow backseat and limited cargo room, both of which are hallmarks of the subcompact class.

Working on FIAT #3. Love my car.

I have had 2 Fiats. One is a 2012 Pop @ 190,000 miles. I've had it ten years and passed it along to my oldest. Second is a 2013 Sport @ 103,000. Ive had it 2 years and passed it along to my youngest. Now I am lookin for my forever Fiat, a 2015. PROS: 1. These vehicles are small and very dependable. A tank of gas will last me 2 weeks and my husband 3 weeks. 2. Great response in handling. 3. Perfect for around the town driving 4. Parking is a breeze, especially with double parkers. CONS: 1. Front console drink holders were apparently made for one large drink or two small drinks comfortably. 2. Don't plan on to much trunk/cargo space. It is not made for soccer moms and all their equipment. 3. Not too many tire companies have Fiat sized tires. Make sure to shop around. Compare prices when you find them.

2014 FIAT 500 Pop

Moore's Auto Sales of Forest City , NC was most accommodating and courteous during the purchase process, would readily recommend to other buyers and will definitely shop there again for next automobile!

Love my 2014 Fiat!

Don’t let the size fool you, it is fun and powerful. I also find parking in the busy city. Love my little Fiat. My only real complaint…the hubcaps are made cheaply. When they break, just buy replacements at your local Wallmart. You’ll save a ton of money that way!
