Fiat 500 Sport Convertible : Getting the top down

It's a nice day, the sun is out - so we've got our roof down on the Fiat 500 Sport convertible. But, we've left something in the boot... As you can see, when folded down, the fabric roof of the Fiat 500 convertible covers over the hinges of the boot. This makes the boot very difficult to open. Luckily, Fiat has thought of this...

2013 Fiat Panda Pop Review

Put simply, the Panda is everything you need in a car with nothing you don’t. After being half bored to death with my slushbox 2009 Civic; I was in the market for something a bit ‘different'. Something that I’d actually enjoy driving on a day-to-day basis.
