  • Limited headroom with sunroof

If you're considering a minicar, don't pass up the chance to road test a brand new Cinquencento (500) at a Fiat "studio" (the Italians are too cool to call it a dealership). Fiat has finally added better infotainment to its 2017 models while the styling is just as fun and playful as you would expect. Keep in mind that while it's spacious enough for two people, if you opt for the sunroof, it significantly limits front headroom.
