Five Reasons to Buy the Fiat 500

Five Reasons to Buy the Fiat 500

Posted on:

The Fiat 500 is a recognisable car across Britain’s roads. Its unique shape and style make it stand out from the crowd. We love it, and here we’ve listed our top five reasons why you should buy a new Fiat 500.

Styling and Personalisation

The first thing to note about the Fiat 500 is its unique style. Easy recognisable among other vehicles on the road, the Fiat 500 is super stylish. There is a range of bold colour choices and a number of trim levels to choose from, meaning owners can personalise to suit them. You can head over to the Fiat 500 pages to see the full range of trim levels available. The 3 door model is the centre of the range however for those looking to catch a few rays during the summer there is also a convertible model which is popular too.

Perfect for City Driving and Parking

The Fiat 500 is great for those who spend a lot of their driving time in towns and cities. It’s small and nifty at manoeuvring around city roads and will get you into the tightest of car parks. The two-cylinder turbo 875cc TwinAir unit makes it fun to drive and if you’re looking to head out of the city and onto the motorway then the diesel option would be the best for you.

Great Safety Rating

The model is highly rated among other city cars for its safety. Receiving the full 5-star Euro NCAP rating when it was launched 10 years ago, it makes for a safe and reliable city car. The car features seven airbags in total, ABS brakes and the hazard lights are automatically triggered when hard braking.

In-Car Gadgets

The entry-level Fiat 500 Pop receives simple in-car infotainment with a FM Radio and USB connection. But if you need something a little more to play with then the next model up boasts a Uconnect five-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth. Other optional extras include a TomTom integrated sat nav and DAB Radio. There are lots of options to make the in car gadgets personal to what you need the most.

Fantastic Offers

The final reason we think you should buy a Fiat 500? The fantastic offers we have available of course! Head over to our new car pages to check out the latest deals, personalisation options and full specifications of the Fiat 500.
