Americans want bigger Fiat 500

Italians from Fiat are now in front of a big question mark regarding the next-generation Fiat 500. The model is scheduled to arrive on the market around 2015. For example, the North American market is the largest single market for the Fiat 500. Sales can reach 43.772 here and in Italy, sales have reached 42.919 units in 2012. The Fiat 500 has a lot of success in the US and there are different opinions according to which the future generation should be a little longer and wider in comparison to the current car. Because there are a lot of customers here their idea might even be a valid one and the Italians might take it into consideration and build the model with different sizes. This might cause a complete change its position on the European market, on the other hand. Here the model is the second best-selling city car, just after the Fiat Panda. The bad news is that there are no details available on the design on the future of the Fiat 500 and the same story is with the styling and the evolution of the entire range. Another problem regarding a final decision refers to the concentration of global production in Poland as here is where the European version is being built. The versions for the South and North American market and also for China are being built in Mexico. This free capacity might be used for a future 500 5-door  subcompact model that would be inserted maybe between the 500 3-door hatchback and also the larger 500L MPV. There is no name available for the future model, but it will be the direct competitor for the Ford Fiesta. According to the carmaker, the new model will be available on the market starting with 2016 in the US and Europe. The Punto will be replaced by this one, in case you were interested to know.
