You make a very big misconception. The Pand does not sell more in Europe than the 500. It sells a lot more in Italy and its sales are located almost exclusively in Italy while 500 sells a LOT across Europe. The Panda would not succeed in the US because it suffers of the exact same problem as the Lancia Ypsilon, it is a national product. In 2015 73.5% of its sales were in Italy. In 2016 77.5% were in Italy. However, the next generation of the Panda could be used to make a Jeep even smaller than the Renegade. The Panda 4x4 as legendary offroad capabilities, thus making a Jeep with those characteristics would surprise a lot of people with its offroad skills and potentially make it a sales success just based on that. If they want to improve their reputation they need to build it from the ground up. It's an effort that may take 3 generations of models so pacience is necessary (something that the upper management of FCA clearly lacks). First, simple vehicles with low price points but reliable. Second generation, improve build quality, offer some special trims, keep reliability, make the design a bit more flashy and just slightly increase price. Third generation, release a true competitor to the stalwarts of the segment and price just slightly below them and offer as much or more equipment. It's an effort for 15 years at least and they want to find a merger (or acquisition) partner in 3 years at most so yeah good luck with that. As for the 500L, it has a confused identity. A mini-van is a rational product and they designed as aspirational/emotional. It damaged the 500 brand in the US and they should just end its sales there. It is tarnishing the Fiat brand now, even if they fixed the issues. They should simply remove it from the line-up and allow the dealers to focus on selling the 500, 500X and 124 which are all quirky and fun vehicles and they coiuld reposition the Fiat brand like that. If they brought a 500X Abarth it would be a great chance to make this shift in positioning. As for FCA filling up the Consumer Reports most regretted purchases, they got rid or are getting rid of the models that fill up that list: the Dart, the 200, the Compass and the Grand Caravan. As much as mopar fans over here are mourning the Dart and 200 axing, it's very clear that cars were tarnishing the FCA brands. And the Compass got a new generation so it will surely leave this list next year.
