Description

All you have to do is glance around a parking lot and it will become apparent that many Canadians love small cars, so it’s no surprise that when Chrysler brought the tiny Fiat 500 to our shores, it quickly found a home in many car parks and driveways. The diminutive 500 is perfectly suited for urban transportation duty, as it has the ability to navigate through congested city streets like a champion, but the same can’t be said when the roads get twisty. While it’s true that the majority of Fiat 500 buyers want an economical urban runabout, there’s a segment of this population who appreciate a little extra performance to help enliven the overall driving experience. Unfortunately, the first 500s to come to Canada a few years ago didn’t offer much in this department. The Fiat 500 Turbo is a little longer overall as room had to be made in the engine bay for the turbocharger and subtle side skirting adds some sporty flair. In an effort to attract younger buyers and broaden the company’s appeal to the enthusiast crowd, in 2013, Fiat brought to market a 500 tweaked by the Abarth performance brand, but the little firecracker of a hot hatch is a little too raucous and temperamental to serve as a daily commuter. STORY CONTINUES BELOW This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your Fiat Chrysler solved this problem by introducing a new model, the 500 Turbo, which is positioned between the standard 500 and the Abarth and offers sporty performance at a moderate price. The Fiat 500 Turbo comes equipped with the same 1.4-litre MultiAir in-line four-cylinder engine as the standard 500 model, but is enhanced by the addition of a turbocharger, which boosts horsepower by 34 per cent. This high-revving engine produces 135-horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque, which does not sound like much in this day and age, but given the car’s small size and lightweight, it’s a respectable output. The majority of instrumentation and controls are within easy reach and view of the driver, and the steering wheel includes secondary controls to control many of the accessory features. Acceleration is peppy, with the nose of the car gently lifting as the car squats down on its haunches and sprints to 100 km/h from a standstill in a tick over eight seconds. In order to handle the extra dose of power provided by the turbocharger and reduce torque steer, the 500 Turbo comes equipped with larger half shafts and heavy-duty constant velocity joints. The 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine produces 135-horsepower and 150 foot pounds of torque. In an effort to give the car more dynamic handling, it’s equipped with a sport-tuned suspension, which helps keep the rubber on the road and sharpens handling characteristics. For a short wheelbase car the 500 Turbo delivers a very smooth ride and tracks with precision. With the boost to both power and dynamic capabilities the product planners at Fiat Chrysler installed a high-performance brake system with larger front rotors to help keep things in control and inspire driver confidence. A throaty exhaust system has also been added to the Turbo’s build sheet. The interior of the 500 Turbo seems to be well constructed and the level of fit and finish has been improving with each evolution of the now iconic little car. The classic contrast of the largely black interior and white dash panel of our test unit is pleasant to the eye, while the optional Rosso Red leather seats and door inserts helped give the car an added dose of curb appeal. The cockpit of the 2015 Fiat 500 Turbo features a simple layout and most controls and switchgear are within easy reach due to the car’s diminutive size. The dash layout is a study in simplicity, as there are minimal controls and very little clutter to distract you. The car’s compact dimensions ensure that everything is within easy reach of both hand and eye, although I found operating the shift lever rather awkward as it is mounted on a dash plateau rather than on the floor or centre console. The thick-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel features a leather wrap and a full complement of secondary controls for the audio, Bluetooth and cruise functions. Electric power assist is light, which means the driver always feels in control. The rear compartment of the Fiat 500 Turbo is rather tight on space but can be enlarged by folding the rear seats forward. As a taller individual (I stand 6″2), I have always found the driving position in a Fiat 500 to be rather uncomfortable. You sit very high in the driver’s seat and the foot well is very short if you have long legs. In fact, my right knee was forced to make regular contact with the dash protrusion and my size 13 feet seemed to grow even larger whenever I got behind the wheel of this little Italian firecracker of a car. Fortunately, there is an abundance of headroom, even in car’s fitted with the optional sunroof upgrade. The Fiat 500 has been designed to fit four adults, but in all honesty, this car is best suited for a couple of adults and their weekend gear. The rear seating area is very small and the mere act of slipping past the front seatbacks into the tiny space should be reserved for small children. The rear passenger compartment features seating for two and a 50/50 split seat design. Legroom is very limited. The front bucket seats feature a fair amount of side bolstering but they don’t do much to inspire confidence as the foam used in their construction seemed abnormally pliable and soft. As a result, the bolsters proved unable to hold me firmly in place during situations where more aggressive handling manoeuvres were in play. Visibility is an issue to the rear, as the headrests block the view out the rear windows making shoulder checks difficult. The Fiat 500 in any guise is a great car for singles or couples looking for a small runabout that is high on style and easy to handle.

I love driving this little car! My only complaint was there was some remaining bits of trash inside the car, it did not appear to have been wiped down either interiorly or exteriorly. Otherwise the check in and check out process was smooth and easy and I had no issues with the car itself. Do note that you will pay out of pocket for the short term parking as well. Mine was about 10$ but not sure if that is more or less than usual.
