More small efficient European (-style) cars!

The pricing for the US flavor of the new (to us anyway) Fiat 500 has been revealed today starting at $15,500 - even cheaper than a Mini.

This car is really cool. Light, quick, safe, good fuel economy and IMO great looking. We need more of these things over here! Stop buying beige appliances and calling them cars! Now that they're the same company as Chrysler its looking like more and more of their European product line will find its way over here (hopefully not with Chrysler badging though...). Yes the last time Fiats were sold stateside they did suffer from some quality issues, but that isn't the case across the pond anymore. Ditch your recall machine and buy something thats actually fun to drive!

"The Italians have a saying, Lemon: 'Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.' And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this case they're right." -Jack Donaghy
