The new FIAT 500 has gone on sale in the UK with important new style, comfort and technological enhancements for 2014. A key new feature is the seven-inch TFT digital instrument display which seamlessly combines cutting-edge technology without disrupting the trademark aesthetics of the cabin. 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, range, etc. It also allows for a more prominent Gear Shift Indicator; highly visible warning messages and more detailed media player, telephone and navigation information readouts, including junction graphics and real-time traffic updates when equipped with a portable TomTom 2 Live satellite navigation system*.
The new 105hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo engine provides an even more enticing combination of power and efficiency. Combined with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, the new 0.9 TwinAir engine delivers 105hp at 5,500rpm and 107lb ft (145Nm) of torque at 2,000rpm in Sport mode (98hp and 89lb ft (120Nm) in ‘eco’ mode) which translates into 0 to 62mph time of just 10 seconds and a top speed of 117mph.
Despite its lively performance, it is still capable of 67.3 mpg on the official combined fuel economy cycle and its CO2 emissions are just 99g/km.
The new top-of-the-range Cult trim level is based on the Lounge version but features automatic climate control; new 16-inch alloy wheels; rear parking sensors; a black roof panel with a fixed glass sunroof and new Poltrona Frau® leather upholstery, as well as the seven-inch TFT instrument panel, all as standard.
