Fiat Reviews

Founded in 1899 by Giovanni Agnelli along with the help of several investors, Fiat is one of the world's longest running automobile manufacturers and Italy's largest. However, hardly an Italian anomaly, Fiat (which is an acronym for Italian Automobile Factory of Turin) produces and sells cars across the globe and has gained a worldwide fan base thanks to its iconic designs and distinctly European point of view. Now, after a two decade absence from American roadways, Fiat has once again returned stateside with a controlling interest in Chrysler and the all-new 500, a city-friendly three-door hatchback that draws upon the automaker's storied history with its cool, retro looks.
