The 2017 Fiat 500 is an Italian icon. It has a 1.4 litre I4 engine under the hood, with five-speed manual transmission. 101 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque result in a good balance of performance and fuel economy. The car is also being offered with a six-speed automatic transmission. US retail prices start at $14,995.
In response to consumer demand Fiat has begun offering the 500 with multiple packages such as ‘two-tone’, ‘pop’, ‘blackout’ and many more. One of the more advertised features of the car is its considerable interior spaciousness. A one-touch power sunroof is also available.
The car’s 7-inch customizable driver information digital cluster display has replaced traditional gauges. In addition is a 5-inch full color touchscreen to go with the car’s media hub. This infotainment system incorporates voice command functionality and hands free calling among other conveniences. Fiat has designed the car’s automatic climate control such that it will keep the interior at the constant set temperature regardless of the weather outside.
