Fiat 500 S
Fiat 500 S
Designed to appeal to customers who want the compact dimensions, low running costs and cheeky appeal of the Fiat 500 but in a sportier package, the new Fiat 500S has been comprehensively restyled with new sports bumpers front and rear, special side skirts and a rear spoiler, while the door handles, tailgate, “moustache”, mirror fairings and 15-inch alloy wheels are finished in exclusive “Satin Graphite”.
The Fiat 500S is also equipped with front fog lamps, tinted rear windows, a chrome-finish tailpipe, black-grained front air intakes and an eye-catching honeycomb grille. The standard 15-inch alloy wheels with their special “Satin Graphite” finish, and the optional 16-inch alloy wheels with a matt-black diamond treatment, are both new to the range while the colour palette has grown to include Electronica Blue metallic and Marching Green matte.
Inside, the new Fiat 500S is enhanced by black sport seats and a black roof lining which contrast with the door panels and seat edges, which are finished in blue, white or yellow. “Satin Graphite” detailing also features on the dashboard fascia and the special sports steering wheel and the interior can also be trimmed in optional Frau leather with white or light blue details for a splash of additional luxury. A full-colour, seven-inch TFT instrument display is standard on the new 500S, while the Fiat 500S Convertible adds an electric canvas roof with a heated glass rear window.
The dashboard of the new Fiat 500S incorporates FIAT’s new Uconnect™ seven-inch HD Live touchscreen with a high resolution display as standard equipment. This system offers a wide range of functions, including Uconnect™ Live services, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling, voice recognition and a multitude of entertainment options including Bluetooth streaming, USB connectivity, a 3.5mm auxiliary jack, DAB digital radio and FM/AM radio. The system can be upgraded with the latest 3D TomTom navigation system for an additional £250.
Four engines power the Fiat 500S so there’s a version for every taste and budget: The 69hp 1.2-litre petrol and the 85hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol are both available with a five-speed manual or optional five-speed Dualogic automated manual transmission, while the 105hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol is fitted with a 6-speed manual as standard.
