    Looks like the Toluca assembly plant (most likely) is going to build it.

    Nothing juicy yet, though, like whether it will actually carry a Fiat badge (I don't think I'd touch it with Chrysler or Dodge branding) or whether it would have a diesel option in NA or anything interesting like that.

    Forget the other trim levels, just give us the Abarth. :D

    My parents should be getting their Fiat 500 convertible delivered in the next few days. I'm quite looking forward to the next time I go and visit them as I've heard they are really fun to drive.

    I'm glad that Americans are looking forward to getting the car over there. Europeans have been driving small, economical cars for years and it's nice to see Americans shying away from the ridiculously huge and polluting cars that are usually associated with them.
