The Fiat 500 may be a smaller car, but you must look at the bigger picture when you are thinking about cost. The Fiat 500 beats these numbers with 28-31 mpg city, and 34-40 mpghwy. The Fiat 500 also has a larger tank size than the Fit, which along with the higher gas mileage, means less frequent stops at the gas station. Isn't that convenient? My Fiat 500 pop is much easier to maneuver, especially in tight spots, and much easier to squeeze into a small parking spot. If you live in the big city, this is especially helpful, because with the Fiat 500, you won't spend as much time circling looking for a parking spot.
