2014 Fiat 500 POP Review

A great little car- I am upgrading to the 1.4 twin air version which have more guts. The 1.2 is a bit sluggish however it is fun to chuck about.

The sport kit which is the option I went for gives the car a much funkier, younger look with bigger bumpers, side trim and a tiny spoiler...
