Fiat Glossary

Welcome to the Richard Hardie Fiat Glossary. On this page you’ll find a list of terms and phrases, and their definitions, as used specifically by Fiat. We know just how time-consuming it can be, working out what each slight variation of a specific word means, often differing even from manufacturer to manufacturer. So if you’re feeling a little baffled, or just want to brush up on your Fiat terminology – this is the place to be.

i-Deal PCP is Fiat’s own Personal Contract Purchase, a form of finance option that offers maximum flexibility for the buyer. A deposit is taken at the start of your purchase, and a figure is determined to be left until the end of the selected term. From there, a repayment term is chosen, between 20 and 48 months, and a monthly repayment cost is calculated. At the end of your agreement you may choose to Part-Exchange, return your Fiat, or pay the final sum and keep the car.
