The highly anticipated new Fiat 500 is set to go on sale this September and this week Fiat announces the pricing and further details on the specification for one of the most popular city cars on the road.
It’s exactly 8 years and 1.5 million units since the new Fiat 500 was launched, on the 50th anniversary of the car’s original launch, and now it makes way for a successor.
Pricing for the new Fiat 500 will begin at £10,890 OTR for the standard model, with buyers able to choose from a wide range of specifications to make their car truly unique.
The Fiat 500 has retained its original best-selling look, and is the same size as its predecessor. Despite some style moderations, the main differences in the new model lie with its advanced technologies and improved efficiency coupled with an updated interior.
The Fiat 500 is now available in 13 different colours included ‘Bossa Nova’ white and two brand new colours, ‘Glam Coral’ pastel and ‘Avantgarde Bordeaux’ metallic. In total there is a choice of 6 pastel shades and 5 metallic colours and one tri-coat finish in ‘Urban White’.
New alloy wheels are also a feature on the new car; Pop Star and Lounge models come with 15 inch alloy wheels as standard with 16-inch wheels available as a £370 option on Pop models and a £180 upgrade option on Pop Star and Lounge models, including an elegant, new, 16-inch, diamond-cut design.
Step inside the Fiat 500 and you’ll discover the cabin has had an upgrade of its own. The dashboard design now integrates an advanced Uconnect™ infotainment system across the range which is a lot easier to navigate and improves connectivity and functionality. In addition, the Lounge version is equipped with the Uconnect™ 5” Radio LIVE system, a touchscreen unit complete with Bluetooth hands-free calling and music streaming; voice recognition and an SMS reader for reading text messages received on compatible telephones.
The front seats of the cabin have adopted a more ergonomic shape and the interior upholstery is available in ten colour combinations on Lounge models with contrasting “crescent” upper portions and head restraints in black or ivory eco-leather. Black, bordeaux or tobacco Frau leather upholstery is also available (depending on model). Additional features include a new lidded glove box and a revised centre console with new cup holders.
The New FIAT 500 is powered by a range of environment-friendly, Euro 6-compliant engines combined with five- and six-speed manual gearboxes or a Dualogic robotised transmission depending on the model. The engines line-up available at launch include the 1.2 litre 69hp, the TwinAir 85hp and the TwinAir 105hp. The TwinAir 0.9 85hp has an official fuel consumption figure of 74.3MPG on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 90g/km , saving owners a substantial sum of money on fuel costs.
The new Fiat 500 is one of the safest cars on the market with the popular 1.2 69hp version now equipped with 257mm front disc brakes for even more effective and powerful braking and seven airbags (front, window and side airbags, plus a driver’s knee airbag) remain standard across the range. Active safety systems include ABS with electronic brake distribution (EBD), advanced electronic stability control (ESC), anti-slip regulation (ASR), Hill Holder and hydraulic brake assistance (HBA) to help with emergency stops.
The New FIAT 500 will be available with three trim levels – Pop, Pop Star and Lounge – and in hatchback and convertible versions. Standard equipment across the range includes seven airbags; remote central locking; electric front windows; electric mirrors; Uconnect™ Radio with six speakers, AUX-IN and USB ports; steering wheel-mounted audio controls; Start & Stop; a space-saver spare wheel and LED daytime running lights. A fully-electric convertible roof with heated glass rear screen is standard on all 500C models. A wide selection of additional options are available.
The new FIAT 500 will go on sale in the UK in early September. For images and the latest news on the New FIAT 500 and other models in the FIAT range visit www.FIATpress.co.uk.
