Having seen it at Geneva , I can say its bigger than you think and its stance reminds me of something from a Jaques Tatti film but I like it . It's probably not cool but I reckon it would be a great family car.

Interior looks good but the rest reminds me of that mini 4x4 thing

That will be popular with the mini traveller club fans. I bet you will see a number of those appearing on the roads.

Horrible but it will sell by the millions. How many 500s and Pandas are out there?

Sorry having lived and trundled about in the original.
Fiat 500. When do they come out with the revival of the 600 and all it's dervivatives ? Family space wagon 600cc, Abarth, Larger 600 4 seater, Giardinetta soft top?
Cheap transport ? That was the initial issue.
Selling based on emotions and souvenirs ... I wonder.
Looks alot like the 'new' and current mini countryman again.
But my parents had one, 'it must be good'...

It's OK for what it is but it's as much a marketing exercise as a piece of design. Probably moreso.

Therefore not cool.

Not so cool when you have to leave the children at home . The fleet of 500 L at Geneva showed the potential for self expression Mini- style . Without the Germans trying to have fun element. Our children were keen to go in the 500 Pop loan car recently and willing to put up with the lack of space , for the novelty .

Exterior is ugly and the interior is even worse... I dont like it but it will sell a lot. Still, i prefer it over the mini countryman

Exactly. McDonald's.

Why ?

Oh why must they sell that stuff.
To appreciate anything Italian Such as Alfa , you must appreciate the dolce vita!

Fast food is not part of it .

If you have kids, you deserve life in an Espace

Keep the little ****ers locked in their own world of noise so they don't compromise my serenity
