    That's definitely better. I haven't been hearing the greatest news re: Fisler powertrains on this side of the Atlantic however. 200 hp in a light roadster could make you look over some rough spots in that regard though.

    This is how the comparison looks (in Spain).

    So which would you have?

    I think were it my money for realsies I'd plonk for the Mazda. FCA reliability scares me. The 124 is cool but I think it'll be a tough sell here. Fiat came out firing with the 500, but I think that's one of the cars that everyone that wants has by now, and the L and X have not made a similar impact.

    PS, love your bookmarks.

    I would probably have the Mazda too, in these conditions.

    But wait a year or so and you may have tempting deals on the Fiat. I would still prefer the Mazda, but if the Fiat cost 20 grand... the decision would be very difficult indeed.

    I think when you buy a badge engineered car, it's better to get the original model.

    Think about the headache if you're trying to service a Pontiac Vibe instead of a Toyota Matrix.

    The Fiat's proportions look odd. It might be because they tried to adapt the new bodywork to the old shape.

    I guess the only good side is that all the bolt on power bits can be had pretty easily on the Miata.
