Perhaps just as importantly the Fiat 500 Cinquecento is the first new Fiat to come to American shores after decades of new Fiats in Europe. Fiat's purchase of Chrysler has given the Italian automaker an American dealer network making it possible for Fiat to bring the very tiny 500 to America.
The Mazda 2 is also all about fun with a splash of utility in the mix. It shares a platform with the new Ford Fiesta but the engine and transmission are different as well as the styling. Both the Fiat 500 an the Mazda 2 are priced about the same and both can be had with an automatic and manual transmission.
