Penned by Fiat Style Centre, the new Fiat 500 is a triumph of pure Italian design. Every line has been carefully crafted to emulate the legendary original. As with the classic, this fresh car will only be offered with three doors, and it has tiny dimensions. Measuring 355cm long, 165cm wide and 149cm tall, the baby is around the same size as a Citroen C2.
The new Fiat 500's size is disguised by its bulging panels, with a cute pronounced crease running down the shoulder. The elegant flat nose features Fiat's latest red badge, flanked by chrome strips. At the rear, the front-engined 500 has a conventional tailgate to maximise practicality. A glass roof panel will let plenty of light into the cabin, and buyers will be presented with a huge array of colours and options to customise their car.
The Fiat 500 isn’t all good looks and no action. Under the bonnet there are three sparkling performers to choose from. Fiat’s revolutionary new TwinAir engine downsizes emissions and fuel consumption – but not performance. The TwinAir 0.9 Turbo delivers 85bhp thanks to electronic airflow and fuel injection, giving better performance than some engines twice its size.
The 1.3 MultiJet Diesel is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the petrol options give you a choice of a 5-speed manual gearbox or our Dualogic automatic system (with steering wheel paddle option). Whichever engine and gearbox you choose, you’ll find each one has been designed to make your journey a lot more enjoyable.
The 500 offers today's drivers four distinctive trim levels: Pop, Colour Therapy, Lounge & Street. Each can be customised to suit individual requirements. True distinctiveness is in the detail enabling everyone the ability to enjoy the car in their own unique way.
