Fiat 500 Trendy?
One of my favorite cars of late is the Dodge Charger, with the mileage of the V6 I could live with the car in Sacramento. However I spend a lot of time in San Francisco where the big Dodge would be impossible to park .
I was in San Francisco last weekend and I noticed quite a few Fiat 500’s on the streets. While they where few on the freeways The streets were filled with them. Is this the beginning of a trend? Is the Fiat joining the ranks of the Mini Cooper,BMW 3 Series and the Toyota Prius? While there weren’t many Fiats in the working class neighborhoods of the Mission and Bayview, there where many in the upper income neighborhoods of the Pacific Heights, Marina , and Cow Hollow and of course there were quite a few in the Castro.
The Fiat is perfect for large cities were space is limited. I don’t expect Texans to give up their F-150’s and Tahoe’s any time soon. According to Fiat, California is its their largest markets followed by New York and DC Area. Its interesting, when they were first introduced they couldn’t give them away. Today they are selling very well. At the Sacramento Auto Show last year my daughter wanted to test drive the Dodge Dart but there was a line. As she was waiting someone asked her if she wanted to drive the Fiat. there were no lines for the Fiat after driving the Fiat and the Dart she said she preferred the Fiat Fiat huh?
