Top Gear takes the new Fiat 500 diesel out for a spin

The new Fiat 500 is proving to be quite popular in Europe where the crew from the Top Gear web site had a chance to try out the 1.3L diesel model. The cute little 500 draws plenty of attention on the streets of London, but it's what's under the skin that counts. The handling and steering are far superior to what one might expect from a little car like this. It corners flat and turns in smoothly. The 75hp 1.3L MultiJet diesel provides plenty of performance and still delivers 56 mpg (U.S.) on the EU combined cycle. According to Top Gear's scribe, even when the fashion aspect of the 500 fades, this will still be one fine little ride.
