Features

Jam packed with the latest technology and safety features, the Fiat 500 makes light, pleasurable work of travelling from A to B. Standard features include seven airbags for all round protection, Start&Stop to lower emissions in traffic-heavy situations and Dualdrive™ power steering. Not forgetting remote controlled central locking, electric windows and the all important MP3 player. Its handy satellite navigation system, Blue&Me™ TomTom, takes care of the navigating and the eco:Drive feature is all about increasing efficiency and reducing travel time.

Take a load off with the addition of a Dualogic gearbox and let the Fiat 500 take the strain by switching to automatic. Or opt for semi-automatic and shift into gear without using the clutch pedal. The choice is yours. Clever ESP (Electronic Safety Programme) technology keeps you on the straight and narrow by averting wheel spins on hard to grip surfaces. Combine that with ABS and EBH and hydraulic brake control and you’re good to go.

Engine and performance

The small and mighty Fiat 500 packs a punch under the hood. With one diesel and three petrol engines and 5-speed manual or Dualogic gearboxes to choose from, driving doesn’t get smoother than this. Keep it nifty with the economical 1.2 petrol engine with 69bhp or ramp it up with the TwinAir 0.9 Turbo with 85bhp or 105bhp that utilises fuel injection and electronic airflow. The TwinAir engine is big on performance and small on fuel consumption and emissions. Prefer a diesel engine? Go for the 1.3 MultiJet Diesel complete with 5-speed manual gearbox.
