Hi, gang....took some quick photos of my new 500 Lounge today, after the window tint was done, and i had it detailed up. Photos taken in one of our local parks. I'm super happy with my purchase. I was also happy, with my 500 L, that i traded in.

Congratulations on your new car. Looks great, beautiful color! I have a '15 500 Sport with manual transmission, and now I find myself needing to get an automatic because of left foot pain, an injury I got several years ago & has been getting worse. A 500 Lounge would be perfect for my needs, as I need the heated seats, automatic climate control and fog lamps. My question is how is the acceleration and fuel economy on the 500 Lounge automatic.

Thank you,
John

Hi John, and thanks.......yes, well surprisingly enough coming from driving a 500L with the turbo.....this Lounge (non-turbo) gets up and goes! Fuel economy, is going to be off a bit, because it is a brand new car...but, so far as i can tell from the EVIC, a steady 27.8 mpg....combined, because i'm disabled/retired most of my driving will be local. But, I can tell you, I'm extremely happy with this car, in all aspects.....its perfect for me. You know, these Fiats learn as you go, to the person who drives it daily.....when new, or when the system is completely reset, and I'm happy to report, this thing just runs very well....more than enough, get up and go! Also, i wanted to add...I'm running 89 octane too...or higher, depending on price at fuel up time. I will never run any lower than 89.....even with the non-turbo, they just seem to run/respond better on higher octane....just my personal opinion. Good luck, with getting a new Lounge! The time is now, to buy....in my area, at least.....get one hell of a deal on a leftover new, 16! :)
