Fiat Automobiles - Bringing a Rich History with a Fresh Lineup of Vehicles

 

Fiat cars have been a staple of the European automotive industry for over a century now. Over time, this company has helped build some of the most iconic vehicles known today. Even so, Fiat is still a mystery for most of North America. Today we'd like to give you a brief introduction to this automotive giant from Turin, talk about its current lineup, especially the 500 series and the 124 Spider, and generally make a case for this brand as a whole.

 

The History of Fiat Automobili - From Turin to North America

 

Much like most other titans of the European automotive industry, Fiat draws its roots from the late 19th-century idea of independent personal transportation. Founded in 1899 by Gianni Agnelli and a handful of inventors, Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino had released its first car, the Fiat 3 ½ CV that very same year. Despite building only 24 of these cars, Agnelli and the rest of the founders got what they were looking for - recognition.

In 1910, some 11 years after the first 3 ½ CV rolled out of their shop, Fiat had become the largest automotive company in Italy. From that moment, the only thing on their menu was growth. Right around this time is when Fiat made its first breakthrough into North American markets.

Long before either the 500 or 124 Spider was even a viable concept, Fiat was selling cars in the United States. Back in the early 1900s, owning a Fiat was a matter of prestige. The company had set up a factory in NY and was building cars to order. Just to put things into perspective, the cars they were selling at the time cost between $3,600 and $8,600. In comparison, Ford's Model T was only $825. Needless to say, not everyone could afford one.

This expansion into the United States, although fairly brief from the current standpoint, foreshadowed the future of this company. Fiat would grow to become one of the largest automotive companies in the world, acquiring brands such as Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and many others.

More recently, this massive company has merged with Chrysler to gain access to its distribution network in the United States. As a part of this merger, the company changed the name to FCA Group.

Fiat 500 - The Italian Phenomenon

 

Every once in a while, a car model comes around that transcends its value as a means of transportation, becoming a symbol of an entire era. There are many cars like that. An example that comes to mind is the VW Beetle - a car that became a global favorite with millions cranked out and still driving all over the world. With that said, Fiat 500 is arguably on the same level when it comes to global influence.

The original 500 was a tiny, agile little car that was just perfect for the tight streets of Mediterranean Europe. When it first came out in 1957, 'the Cinquecento' quickly became the hottest little car around. The first versions had the famous suicide doors that gave the vehicle a special kind of flavor. When Fiat 500L or Lusso came out in 1968, the car had lost the suicide doors and gained a whole lot of chrome. By the time 1975 came about, the production piped down, and the entire project was mothballed.

During its time, the 500 became a legend. Many different versions were built, including the Abarth 500, which was the sporty version in the family. Fiat had licensed the 500 to various manufacturers around the world, who kept producing the car long after Fiat had moved on to other things.

The New Fiat 500 - Definition of Style

 

The 40-year void left behind the 500L was tangible. Fiat has released several small hatchbacks since 1975. There was the Uno, the Seicento, Panda, and many others. However, none of them came even close to achieving what the 500 did back in the day. It was clear that 500 had to come back in one way or another. And so it did.

In 2007, Fiat announced that it would revamp the 500 series with a brand new design. The new car was definitely an homage to the original, but it was different in a number of important ways. For starters, the designers ditched the rear-mounted engine for a front-mounted one, which was met with some resistance among the fans. The entire car was larger, as well.

Much to Fiat's joy, the new 500 became instantly accessible in all of the same markets where the original initially dominated. The company quickly jumped on the opportunity and created a whole line of 500 inspired models, including the 500X, the new 500L, and many more, most of which share very little with the original design.

They've added more engines into the mix, created 4-door versions of the car, and more. The new 500 Abarth was a total hit. The feisty 1.4L 4-cylinder engine and 160 horses under the hood paired with a finely tuned suspension were enough to give the Abarth 500 plenty of character.

The 500X crossover was a perfect example of just how far the 500 brand has come. Most importantly, Fiat had used the revamped 500 to break back into the US market, which they have done with a fair bit of success. However, the 500 wasn't alone in this task.

Fiat 124 Spider - The Spirit of Pininfarina

 

While the 500 took most of the spotlight in the US, Fiat had decided to revamp another legendary badge - the 124 series roadster. Initially designed by Pininfarina back in the mid-'60s, the 124 Spider was a small, agile coupe built on the sedan version of the car. The 2015 revamp of this legendary badge brought a lot of that same flavor but in a slightly different package. Namely, the new 124 Spider was based on the 4th gen MX5 Mazda Miata.

Seeing how popular Miatas are in the United States, it's fair to say that the 124 Spider will benefit from sharing the same platform. Fitted with a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbocharged engine that's either paired with a 6-speed manual or a smooth 6-speed Aisin automatic, the 124 has plenty of kick for its size.

Those who feel that the base model is underpowered with its 140 horsepower can always choose to go with the more powerful Abarth version. Aside from the traditional styling upgrade and the legendary scorpion badges, Abarth had squeezed out around 30 more horsepower out of that engine.

As a result, you're getting an agile little coupe that shares the fun factor of a Miata but offers a slightly different driving dynamic.

The Elephant in the Room

 

Although Fiat is on par with VW when it comes to its scope of operations across the world, it's still subject to some prejudice in the United States. The most common question is whether Fiats are reliable? Despite what many think, these cars are about as reliable as any other.

The deal with modern Fiats is pretty straightforward. As long as you do your part and maintain the car, it will serve you well. The models available in the US represent a small portion of what this brand offers worldwide. Both the 500 and 124 feature the same 1.4 MultiAir engine that has so far proven to be quite reliable.

Parts are not that difficult to source either, thanks to the FCA's massive distribution network. Besides, we're looking to help out in this regard as much as possible. Owning a 500X or just a regular 500 is a great way to get from point A to point B in style and on budget.

Who are Fiat 500 and 124 For?

 

Both of these vehicles have a long history, but they are fairly new to the North American markets. The 500 is arguably the ultimate city cruiser. It's small, agile, and gets great gas mileage out of that little 1.4 engine. On the other hand, the 124 Spider is a sporty coupe that you can throw around the track on track days, but also enjoy during your daily commute.
