Resurrecting the Brand with Fiat 500

Serving as an icon for 6 decades, Fiat 500 models that came up in 2019 were fitted with turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Lounge and Pop models have 1.4 litre MultiAir Turbo engine that can deliver 135 hp of power and torque of 150 lb-ft. It features twin intercoolers, one turbocharger, and a sport-tune exhaust system. You are given the choice of selecting from 5 speed manual or 6 speed automatic transmission system. Basically, it is a mini-compact front wheel drive car with 4 passenger capacity and Sequential MPI fuel system. The cars are very advanced and hence obtaining a Fiat 500 workshop manual would be recommended before working on these vehicles yourself.

Let’s have a look at more details and specifications of this car that can literally make your garage space brighter.

Overview of Fiat 500

Bid adieu to the boring cars with this gorgeous Italian gelato scoop. Available in hard top 500 and retractable soft-top 500C versions, both are heavy in charm and nothing much in difference. If you are in awe with the looks of Fiat 500, then you will definitely fall in love with its performance too. So, act fast and get yourself this car to show off and feel proud.

Performance Parameters

Now, Fiat 500 comes with only one engine version, which is a turbocharged 1.4 litre 4-cylinder engine. That may not a lightning fast speed to the car, but the 135 hp it delivers can make it go round the town like a pro. It can reach 0 to 60 mph of speed within 8.1 seconds. While you have the option to choose 6 speed automatic transmission system, you may still stay traditional with the standard 5-speed manual system. Fiat claims that the suspension system of the 500 is sport-tuned, and its chassis has sufficient athleticism to make an impact. However, most people do not buy Fiat 500 for its performance, but it is more like a fashion statement among car lovers. 

Interiors and Mechanism

The retro kind of charming exterior is what that makes Fiat 500 stand out in the traffic. However, the interiors are no different. The dashboard has a 5 inches infotainment touchscreen with digital circular screen lights on the gauge display. You can buy the model in a variety of chic themes, including 2-tone cream and caramel leather version, and seat covers made of houndstooth fabric. As far as high-tech features involved in the 500 are concerned, there is a backup camera and parking sensors for driver assistance. 

Exteriors

With its great looks, high-end performance, and high-tech systems, Fiat 500 has become one of the most desirable cars in the market. This 2-door tiny hatchback has a signature body structure featuring a single thin slat grille and rounded nose. The air dam is mesh-wrapped with a wide honeycomb, along with vertical signature twin headlamps, xenon lights and projectors. Abarth decal runs across its side, with Abarth logo near the door handles to give it a sporty look. The tailgate has a ‘Competizione’ badge, and the rear spoiler matches well with the car’s sporty appearance. 3657mm long, 1627mm wide, and 1485mm high, it has 2300mm of wheelbase. The car is available in four attractive colours, which are Campovolo Grey, Scorpione Black, Iridato White and Cordolo Red.
