New Fiat 500 now on sale
New Colours, upholsteries and wheels for 2014
The new Fiat 500 has now gone on sale with new style, comfort and technological enhancements for 2014. A fantastic new key feature is the segment-first seven-inch TFT digital instrument display, developed in collaboration with Magneti Marelli, which seamlessly combines cutting-edge technology without disrupting the trademark aesthetics of the cabin. Standard on 500S and Cult models and optional on Lounge versions, the layout and execution of the speedometer, rev counter and trip computer will be familiar to anyone who has driven the current FIAT 500, but the centre of the display which contains a digital image of the car can be configured to show various trip computer readouts, such as distance travelled, instant fuel consumption and range.
Another major development for the 2014 Fiat 500 is the new TwinAir engine. The new 105hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo is the newest member of the award-winning TwinAir engine family and employs a high-efficiency turbocharger; an exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head; a Start&Stop fuel-saving system and the new MultiAir II intake valve control system to provide an even more enticing combination of power and efficiency.
A high level of safety equipment comes as standard including ABS with EBD, seven airbags, ISOFIX attachments and daytime running lights. ESP, complete with ASR/MSR and Hill Holder, is also available on all versions as an extremely affordable option. The colour palate has also been revised for 2014 with the addition of a brilliant new Urban white tri-coat (Pop, Lounge, Cult Convertible and S), trendy Smooth Mint (Pop, Lounge and Cult) and a vibrant Electronica blue (500S only).
