Just bought a new Fiat 500L Trekking

Just drove the new 500L Trekking home last night after a good test drive. Still getting used to the Auto-Shift dual clutch but liking it a lot.

Also own a Mini Countryman Manual and keeping it.
Love the mini.

But needed a car that would handle the roads nicely and yet, take care of inching though city rush hour...which is just a pain with a stick. Especially here in Pittsburgh PA with the hills.

It didn't take long, a test drive and it just clicked.

Price was very reasonable, Mini's are a bit pricier.

So sure, only had it for less than a day, drove it home in a serious rain storm, today nice and dry...
Its just very easy to handle, the dash is intuitive and the manual mode is fun.

I'm now a Fiat owner.......

Hello and welcome to the world of FIAT 500L ownership, currently a bit of an exclusive club (in the UK at least) but hopefully growing day by day....

Yeah the 160hp is fun. Not quite my mini with 190hp but the fiat is no slouch....
