Four Fiat 500s for 2011

Fiat 500 Abarth
It's been reported by Automotive News that there will be four different versions of the Fiat 500. Allegedly, the 500 will come in hatchback, convertible, wagon, and "sporty hatchback." And by "sporty hatchback," they mean the Abarth version. I can't hardly wait to see the comparison tests vs. the MINI Cooper S.

This is exciting news especially for someone who is half Italian like me but there is no clear message about whether we'll see this car here in "Canuckistan." Aside from this issue I like that there will be a variety of 500s out there.The Abarth version if it comes over just like that could grab a lot of Golf/Rabbit Gti and Mini Cooper S/JCWS buyers. I hope the 500 wagon ends up looking a bit more graceful than the Mini Clubman (which I like but only in certain colors.)

Can't wait to see the wagon- I hope they avoid the Mini Clubman pitfall and give it four normal passenger doors and a normal rear hatch.
