Dont think Superman would ever want to be seen in a Fiat 500. Maybe Robin.

^^ It would be the perfect cover for him. Everyone would think that he was Robin, but no one would guess that he was Superman

Great review, Kaushik Enjoyed reading it, very much.

@kaushikz
you have got an awsome command over the language and a nack to appreciate the best and disgust the worst in a car. Keep the review's flowing in man. We would love to(atleast I would) read off beat reviews like these.
Three cheers

Great review Kaushikz!! This is a very crisp and concise review of the 500. Loved reading every word of the review.
Sad its not in the normal hatch category though!

Thumbs up Three cheers.

hey kaushik,

Lovely review and superb writing style. You got a fan already (from the time i read your Jazz review>> I was a backbencher myself and could relate easily ).
And your description of mr.kent led to some serious self realisation. Most of us here would be mr. kents i guess.

I spotted this white 500 in Koramangala area few times, Oh boy this bug looks very cute. I wanted beetle, Mini, 500 but due to short of Vitamin M, I am settling with an Indian version of these cute cars...a SPARK :-))

kaushikz, I am a fan of your witty humorous writing style.

The Xenon, Jazz and this one are really masterpieces.
Expecting more such reviews. Please write something on Linea too!

Congrats on your new buy buddy.

The other day when I was driving back from office, I saw a white car coming from the opposite side. [I was the first one at the signal]. And guess what? It was getting a very nice and well deserved attention from the onlookers.

I was like. Wait a minute! Isn't that a 500? Good God, it is!
While I thinking this up, the signal went green and others behind me went honking!
BTW, this incidence was in Kochi.
Does it belong to anyone here?

Hrishi, That must be the Fiat 500 which was bought by the owner of Nest - Jahangir. RF motors sold this.

nice writeup on a cool car. i would have been really desperate to save up to buy the 500 if it had a petrol engine, i could keep revving till eternity. I know the diesel 500 is no slouch, but still :-)
