    1353042060

    Fiat won't officially pull the wraps off of its all-electric 500e until the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month, but we now have a pair of official images that show the little orange shocker both inside and out.

    SEMA: Fiat brings Café Racer, Beach Cruiser and Magneti Marelli samplers to SEMA
    1351640460

    The retro-coolness of the Fiat 500 is such that it naturally lends itself to customization. So, when we first heard tell that the company was preparing a stripped-down Café Racer concept, a beach-ready 500C and a brace of Magneti Marelli cars for this year's SEMA show, our interest was piqued. Now that the curtain has dropped on the mean ...

    Video: Fiat readying stripped-down 500 Cafe Racer concept for SEMA
    1351518300

    We don't remember the last time we heard the phrase "cafe racer" applied to a car, but we'll get to see just such a beast at this week's SEMA show. Fiat is applying the cafe racer philosophy to a 500, which means chopping it, dropping it and stripping the lightweight machine down even further, "Taking it down to the essence of what you need to drive a ...

    1351204260

    It looks like the all-electric version of the Fiat 500 will make its official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month. No word on whether Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne will bring the house down with his "we don't really want to build this car" routine. The LA Auto Show has confirmed that the 500E will be one of the models revealed at the convention, ...

    Chrysler is taking on the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas in a big way, with a sprawling 15,300 square-foot display encompassing a total of 24 modified vehicles. We got a chance to preview some of those creations, including the plucky little Fiat 500C you see above. Designers decided to take a page from the West Coast custom scene with unique widebody fender ...

    Paris: 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth Fuori Serie puts customization program on display

    Customization programs are nothing new in the auto industry. For a fee, they offer a chance to work directly with the manufacturer to create a one-of-a-kind vehicle for the customer. These programs, however, are usually offered by makers of the most exotic, expensive and exclusive vehicles, like Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Porsche. It's not often that a ...

    Paris: 2013 Fiat Panda 4x4 is 'go anywhere' in a small package
    1348793940

    Fiat has already dropped all of the info for its new Panda 4x4 mini utility, but the Paris Motor Show allows us to finally see this prospective future Jeep in the flesh. Claimed to be the only four-wheel-drive offering in Europe's A-segment, the 2013 Fiat Panda 4x4 promises to be a proficient off-roader in a very small package. From the sounds of it, ...

    Official: Fiat previews new Panda 4x4 ahead of Paris
    1346335080

    Not a Kung-Fu panda, but a "Super Panda." That's what Fiat is calling the third-generation, four-wheel-drive A-segment five-door hatch, which is apparently "ready to tackle mountain mule tracks and the urban jungle with the same cool." If that sounds like your kind of beast, this 4x4 wears all manner of elements to let others know you mean business: black ...

    Report: Seven-seat Fiat 500XL leaked ahead of Paris debut
    1345041120

    The Fiat 500 continues its program of aggrandizement, going from the five-seat 500L and 500X to the seven-seat 500XL – that is, if these patent drawings and snapshots from Fiat's Centro Stile are accurate pictures of the future. The 500 is 11.6 feet long, appending the L added exactly two more feet, and the XL is said to be another six inches longer ...

    Teased: Fiat surprises journalists with 500X sneak peek

    Fiat is aiming its 500 lineup straight at Mini with the 500L and now this Countryman rival, the 500X. To us, the vehicle shown here (reportedly shown as a teaser to a pool of assembled journalists) looks to have opaque windows which could indicate that it's a non-rolling prototype, possibly without an interior. CarsUK guesses it's based on the 500L, ...

    Beijing: Fiat darts into China with new Viaggio

    The alliance between the Chrysler Group and Fiat SpA has been a two-way street: Auburn Hills has given Lancia a new lease on life, for example, while Alfa Romeo has given Dodge the underpinnings for the new Dart. And now Dodge can return the favor in the form of the vehicle you see here. Called the Viaggio, it's essentially a Fiat-badged Dodge Dart with ...

    Teased: Dodge Dart to be pronounced "Fiat Viaggio" in Italian

    You have to love the global auto industry. Fiat will be introducing a Chinese-built version of the American Dodge Dart, a car that's based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, at the Beijing auto show on April 23. Dubbed "Viaggio," production of the new sedan will launch in July, with sales commencing in China by the end of the year. While Fiat isn't saying ...

    Behold, the stars and stripes of the Fiat 500 America. As you may recall, this patriotic little hatchback isn't headed to our shores anytime soon. Fiat has decided to offer up the America F-Yeah edition 500 to European customers only, which seems like an odd move to us. Fiat seems to agree. The company is only producing a total of 1,000 units draped in ...

    The Fiat 500 wins hearts and wallets by trading in large measure on its unassailable cuteness and compact dimensions. But that's not enough for Sergio Marchionne and Company, who are looking to broaden the range's appeal with this new 500L. Certainly, it's bigger by nearly every measure, but after having clapped eyes on this thing in person at the ...

    When a carmaker announces a European-exclusive limited edition, we often feel upset. Sometimes we even get irate. And then there are the instances like this one when we just chuckle and nod. Not that there's anything exactly wrong with the Fiat 500 "America." We're sure it drives just the same as a regular 500, since, of course, Fiat hasn't changed ...

    The Fiat group has a knack for (or a habit of) dressing up its most affordable hatchbacks in tribute to its most expensive exotics. Alfa Romeo did a special MiTo and Giulietta for Maserati dealers, and Abarth did a special 500 to honor Ferrari. But since the latter has run its production run, the Scorpion marque is celebrating Maserati with this latest ...

    Now that Fiat is officially tied at the hip with Chrysler, it's no surprise to see the Pentastar's aftermarket division take to the diminutive 500 like a honeybee to clovers (sorry). Which explains the 2012 Fiat 500 Stinger, the first Mopar-fettled Fiat ever created. The Stinger moniker seems to come from the machine's black and yellow paint scheme, ...

The 500L is 162.9 inches long, a smidge over 70 inches wide and 65.3 inches tall. Fiat says the ...
