The all-new Fiat 500 has now gone on sale in the UK, and is available from Johnsons Fiat dealerships.
Featuring a revamped style and a stunning array of new features, the 500 represents the pinnacle of Fiat engineering. The new model – always a popular choice among the fashionable – is now available in three new colour palettes, and is fitted with new features such as the seven-inch TFT digital display. This screen is fixed in the middle of the dashboard, and displays vital statistics such as computer readouts, distances travelled, fuel consumption and range. The display sits alongside the stylish speedometer, rev counter and trip computer, which will be familiar to anyone who has driven the current Fiat 500.
The 2014 model comes with a range of engines including the 69hp 1.2-litre petrol (113g/km), the TwinAir 85hp Turbo Petrol (92g/km) and the 1.3 16v MultiJet 95hp turbo diesel (97g/km). The new, award-winning 105hp TwinAir engine employs an efficient turbocharger matched with the new MultiAir II intake valve control system and a range of fuel-saving features such as Start&Stop to deliver an enticing combination of power and efficiency – it means top speeds of 117mph and the ability to zoom from 0 to 60mph in around ten seconds.
A new top-of-the-range Cult trim level is also available. Based on the base ‘Lounge’ trim, it offers a host of extra features including rear parking sensors, 16-inch alloy wheels and automatic climate control. The Cult variant is powered by Fiat’s TwinAir engine technology, available in 85hp or 105hp versions.
And as you can expect from the legendary manufacturer, the 2014 Fiat 500 is packed with a high level of safety equipment. Features include ABS with EBD, seven airbags, ISOFIX attachments, Hill Holder and daytime running lights among plenty more. The new Cult trim variation also features automatic climate control, 16-inch alloy wheels and innovative rear parking sensors.
