    Los Angeles: 2014 Fiat 500L Trekking takes the hatchback into the big leagues
    1354151400

    Didn't think it was possible to pull and pry at the diminutive Fiat 500 with enough gumption to make the Italian hatchback qualify as a large car (according to the EPA, at least)? Witness the Fiat 500L Trekking, seen above. It's a full 26-inches longer than the regular 500, and it's grown six-inches taller and wider. All that stretching means there is 42 ...

    1354150800

    Fiat is taking the lead from Mini and expanding its lineup of mini-me runabouts. The Italian automaker has done the 500 every which way, including convertible and performance models and now even electrified versions. Following this expansion comes the first actual growth in size; the 2014 Fiat 500L. First shown at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March, the ...

    Los Angeles: 2013 Fiat 500c Abarth takes its top off with a quickness
    1354147260

    What a pleasant little piece of plug-and-play. Putting the Fiat 500c's retractable roof on the hot 500 Abarth was pretty much a no-brainer, and hey, we certainly aren't complaining. Folding the soft top back on the little hatchback will only allow us to better hear that awesome exhaust note while we're burying the throttle. And come on, who doesn't like a ...

    Official: 2014 Fiat 500L rounds out the model range
    1354079220

    Fiat has pulled back the curtain on the North American 500L ahead of the five-door's debut at the 2012 LA Auto Show. Engineers have drawn and quartered the base 500 to create a machine that's a full 26-inches longer and six-inches taller and wider. The result is a crossover with 42-percent more interior room than its tiny three-door counterpart. Power ...

    1354079160

    The 2013 Fiat 500C Abarth is debuting in the City of Angels. It's the super-tuned version of the 500C combining all the best of fresh-air motoring and heightened performance from the scorpion-badged marque. As with the vanilla 500C, the Abarth's folding canvas roof opens all the way at up to 50 miles per hour, and will slide back to the rear spoiler at up ...

    Official: 2013 Fiat 500e finally ready to rock down to Electric Orange Avenue
    1354079100

    For a car that Fiat didn't want to build, the company sure has a lot to say about it. The damn near mythical Fiat 500e is finally here, and a trip utilizing its 100-mile range would probably give you just enough time to finish reading the press releases that came with it. Among the highlights are the color, Electrico Arancione – Electric Orange to ...

All of the details surrounding the new 500e are still under embargo until the debut, and as of this writing, Chrysler will only confirm that ...

    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

    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 ...

    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, ...

We got a chance to preview some of those creations, including the plucky little Fiat 500C you see above.

    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

    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, ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
