Well-respected automakers can be found almost anywhere in the world: Germany, Japan, the United States. Fiat adds one more country to the list: Italy. With strong roots in the culture of Turin, Italy, the innovative Fiat brand has been making cars since 1899.
Fiat automobiles are best known for having all the necessary features loaded into a small package. The well-loved Fiat 500 was one of the world’s first economy cars. It was initially launched in 1936 as a response to difficult economic times that had fallen on Italy during World War II. Although the details of the 500 have changed since then, the car's compact silhouette remains the same—and the 500 remains a worldwide favorite. In recent years, the small shape and distinctly Italian design of the Fiat 500 have become the basis for Fiat's modern models, like the family-friendly 500X and 500L crossover vehicles. Another notable Fiat car is the Panda, a sleek city car first introduced in 1980. Over the years, the Panda has become more and more compact, but its versatility has given it staying power as one of the most popular cars in Europe.
Did you know? Fiat isn’t actually a word; it’s an acronym. Much like BMW stands for three words in German, Fiat is short for a phrase in Italian: Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino. As the company’s full name indicates, Fiat was founded in Torino (aka Turin), Italy. But after 115 years with their headquarters in Torino, Fiat moved its headquarters out of Italy following its merger with Chrysler.
After more than a century in business, Fiat has perfected the art of creating small—but stylish—cars for drivers all over the world.
