Life is sweet with the retro Fiat 500. Inspired by an Italian design icon, this thoroughly up-to-date city car has a seemingly endless list of customisation combinations, meaning you can create a car as individual as you are.
Look at the 500 and the word that immediately springs to mind is ‘chic’. Its 50s inspiration is clear, with Fiat’s trademark circular headlights sitting astride a chrome grille strip on the bluff nose.
Short wheel overhangs emphasise its compact, curvaceous silhouette, and ensure a low centre of gravity - perfect for nippy handling. The little Fiat’s image as the ultimate fashion accessory is reinforced with regular colour chart updates too.
To mark an incredible 60th Anniversary of the beloved Fiat 500 model, the special 500-60th and Anniversario editions are also now available. Introducing a style revolution with their vintage inspired design that we have loved since the very beginning.
Click the remote-controlled central locking and inside you’ll find a vintage-effect steering wheel and Bakelite-style switches controlling the stereo and ventilation. The circular headlight motif is echoed in the dashboard instrument cluster, headrests and air vents, creating a brilliantly-resolved design that works in harmony.
The wheel-at-each-corner design maximises interior space, creating plenty of space for a full complement of passengers even within its compact footprint. The split-folding rear seats (on Pop Star and Lounge models) help you accommodate longer items that won’t squeeze into the 185-litre boot. Stay cool on the move with air conditioning (standard on Pop Star and Lounge models), and specify big-car features like a seven-inch TFT display and leather upholstery for the ultimate luxury 500 experience.
The 500 is at home in the city, but you can enjoy lively handling when you venture onto twisting country roads thanks to nicely-weighted Dualdrive power steering. Choose from four engines; three petrols, including the frugal and eager 0.9 TwinAir in two power outputs, plus a 1.3 MultiJet diesel that can achieve up to 76.3mpg.
Start&Stop fuel-saving technology contributes towards the 500’s low CO2 emissions and fewer trips to the fuel station. These are as little as 90g/km, meaning lower road tax bills as well.
The 500 is generously equipped with safety technologies as standard, including seven airbags and intelligent anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution. These combine to help the 500 achieve a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Rear parking sensors, standard on the Lounge trim, should spell the end of parking scrapes, too.
Bluetooth-enabled devices can connect directly to the touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system (standard on the Lounge trim) wirelessly, so you can safely take important phone calls or listen to your favourite tunes on the go, too.
