The brand-new Fiat 500 the Icon Re-loaded is finally here! Fiat have definitely worked day and night to modernise the car with cutting-edge features and have yet managed to preserve the retro looks and fun personality which makes the Fiat 500 very special.

Incredible Exterior Detail

Have you ever walked down the street and a passing car instantly catches your eye? Well the new Fiat 500 Icon-Reloaded will certainly have you gazing at its beauty and personality.

The devil is in the details, starting at the front, the smooth round bumpers and poly-elliptic circular lights surround the 3D-effect smile. Swoop around the side to be enlightened by the classy alloy wheels; choose between 15” in glossy grey or 16” in matt black diamond. Finally the rear the car houses unique all-in-one light clusters and chrome lines. Bring the fun home by personalising your Fiat 500 with a choice between 6 Second Skins options.

Stylish Interior

Sit back in style, the interior sparks new seating materials and patterns catered to all tastes. The new dashboard focuses on function; making you feel at ease with rounded buttons and new Uconnect™ system which can be controlled via the new steering wheel. An optional 7” TFT digital display will give you all the information you need while driving.

Feather Light Engines

Fiat’s latest development in engine technology meeting Euro 6 regulations, is now available for the new Fiat 500 the Icon Reloaded with a choice of a 1.2 69hp Petrol, 85hp or 105hp versions of the new 0.9 TwinAir Turbo.

Innovative Technology

Uconnect™ is the new infotainment system which connects you to the world around you. All in-built to a 5” touchscreen on the dashboard, you can control your radio, mediaplayer, iPod, Smartphone (access your apps on-board) connected via the USB port or Aux-in port.
Eco:Drive allows you to look at real-time data in regards to your car’s CO2 emissions and fuel levels. You can monitor your eco-friendly progress from your home computer or smartphone.

Safety First

Allow yourself to relax as you’re in good hands of the upgraded safety features. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to stop quickly the ABS + EBD will take care of the force so you can stop safely. To make it easier for you to do hill-starts the Fiat 500 has Hill Holder technology as well as ESC which keeps the car on a steady path in emergencies. The HBA and Hazard Device both apply to heavy braking, making it safer by shortening stopping distance and automatically turning on emergency lights to warn other drivers.

At Richard Hardie we are incredibly excited to have the New Fiat 500 the Icon Re-Loaded at our showrooms! Visit our Silverlink or Ashington dealership to find out more.
