    I was wondering the same thing. This car is being imported into the US soon and I am intrigued by the car because these types of vehicles are such a rarity on US roads. I doubt we'll be getting any of the interesting engines here though.

    Not all engines are suitable for the types of fuel available in USA.

    Higher sulphur content than those in Europe tend to ruin the injectors.

    I like that you are able to buy a diesel powered passenger car in europe. Here, there are only a couple of cars you can buy with diesel engines.

    I think they are good cars. They are nice looking and ive seen reviews on the internet and everyone else says they are good. Dont know what they are like to drive though as i have never driven one.

    It's got awesome ratings, carbuzz gives it a rating of 8.1! http://www.carbuzz.co.uk/Fiat-500 and it's also is exempt from the congestion charge - useful for fellow londoners
