Fiat Returns to America

Fiat returned to the American market in 2009 after being gone more than a quarter of a century, saving the Chrysler Corporation from almost certain bankruptcy. Soon after, Fiat-branded cars returned to U.S. roads, bringing Italian style to the subcompact car segment with the American introduction of the Fiat 500

The 500 gained attention with its retro looks and nimble handling, but the Italian automaker knew that having one vehicle wasn't enough for long run. The Fiat 500 lineup has grown to include a convertible, the battery-electric 500e, and the high-performance Fiat 500 Abarth. The model’s growth has been hampered by lower-than-average reliability scores and initial quality concerns.

Larger models, such as the 500L wagon and 500X crossover, have joined the Fiat family. Four Fiat models are now available in America, including a sporty roadster built on the same platform as the Mazda MX-5 Miata.
