Fiat is one of the world's oldest car manufacturers. With its origins in Northern Italy before the 1900s, this company has withstood the test of time. On many occasions Fiat has tried to enter the US market with some of its most recognizable vehicles. The Fiat 500 and Alpha Romeo models can be seen parked on most streets across America. More recently Fiat's purchase of the Chrysler brand has given it a new foothold into the US market. With next generation platform-sharing Fiats can be found across the world, but all come from the same roots in Northern Italy more than 100 years ago.
