Cute, and worth it
Cute, and worth it

I'm usually cautious about summing up any vehicle after a media press event. After all, I've just driven on carefully selected roads at the end of which there was a hot tasty lunch in beautiful natural surroundings. An eight-year-old Dodge minivan with wet dog smell would probably seem just fine after all that.

But, really, it's hard to find much fault with the 500c. It's as cute as a baby picture of Sophia Loren and, while it's not the most exciting car to drive, it's wonderfully pleasant. You can even open the top while you drive, assuming it isn't raining. How cool is that?
