In a couple of days, Fiat/Chrysler chief exec Sergio Marchionne is anticipated to officially announce plans to bring the Fiat 500 to North America. But if the diminutive hatchback strikes you as too small for American tastes, new reports indicate that a four-door version is in the works.

Set to be built at the Fiat factory in Mirafiori, Italy, AutoWeek reports that the four-door 500 - code-named L0 - will be classified as a small minivan in Europe, and arrive on the European market at the end of next year. If and when it comes Stateside, however, it will join the two-door, convertible and Abarth performance models, set to be built atop a new platform at the Chrysler plant in Toluca, Mexico.

In addition, the Italian-American alliance is reportedly considering bringing another subcompact built at the recently acquired Zastava Yugo plant in Serbia to North America in 2013.
