Be a part of history….drive a FIAT 500
When was the last time you got in your car, started to drive, and smiled? Most likely it was back when you were 16 and just got your driver’s license. The 2012 FIAT 500 dares you to get in and not smile. From its sporty exterior stance down to the interior features you’d normally find in a luxury sedan, the 2012 FIAT 500 is taking the world by storm.
Don’t let the Fiat 500’s size fool you. Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it can’t be a comfortable and functional home away from home. The FIAT 500 comes standard with power doors, mirrors and windows, as well as audio and cruise control buttons mounted on the steering wheel. Everything you need is literally at the tips of your fingers. With its AM/FM/CD/MP3 Auxiliary equipped 6 speaker stereo, the Fiat 500 is a cruising machine that any VA Fiat fan will love.
Offered in three different trim levels, Pop, Sport and Lounge, and with over 500,000 possibilities, there is a FIAT 500 for any personality. Below are a couple of design cues to help differentiate each trim level.
FIAT 500 POP:
The Fiat 500 Pop is for those who appreciate Italian style, efficiency and want personalization options.
FIAT 500 Sport:
The 500 Sport is for driving enthusiasts who like Italian car design and want more convenience features. The 500 Sport has modified springs and shock tuning, steering calibration and exhaust tuning. Outwardly, the 500 Sport is distinguished from other 500 models by its distinctively styled front and rear fascias with larger ‘honeycomb’ grilles and flared aerodynamic treatment, new bodyside sill cladding, a liftgate-mounted roof spoiler and unique 16-inch aluminum wheels with Mineral Gray painted pockets.
FIAT 500 Lounge:
The 500 Lounge is for those who want their Fiat 500 to reflect their style and fashion sense. It features premium amenities including the all-new six-speed automatic transmission with driver-selectable gear changes, luxurious lounge side molding, 15 inch aluminum wheels with all-weather tires, leather interior and premier cloth seats.
Fiat didn’t skimp on safety when it designed the Fiat 500 either. The 500 is perfectly equipped for American roads and VA Fiat drivers with a standard safety system that will let drivers of any experience level cruise without a care. All Fiat 500 models come with front and rear head airbags as well as dual front side mounted airbags. Preventing an accident is more important than being equipped to handle one, though. That’s why the Fiat 500 has 4 wheel ABS with stability control, traction control, electronic brakeforce distribution and tire pressure monitoring. An emergency stop will be just as easy as one made at a traffic light in the 500.
Some cars go down in history for their technological or stylistic innovations. Others deserve to be remembered sentimentally for the role they’ve played in the daily life of an entire generation or country. But few succeed in combining the two – technology and sentiment – and leave an eternal mark. Now in over 80 countries, the FIAT 500 has evolved into a beloved global icon, winning the hearts of passionate drivers, motor journalists and judges alike. Most recently winning 60 international awards, including being named 2008 European Car of the Year and 2009 World Car Design of the Year. Additionally, FIAT MultiAir Technology was recognised as the “Single Most Innovative Engine Technology” of 2010 by the International Engine of the Year Awards panel. Now that’s love.
