One of the things that is most important to car buyers nowadays, especially as many of us are still suffering from the damages the recession did to the economy, is the fuel efficiency. Although the style, design and interior are all factored into your decision, it is likely if you’re looking for a new car that you are concerned with how many miles you will get to the gallon with each time you fill it up. If that is the case, then the Fiat 500 could be the car you are looking for.
Available at dealerships across the UK such as Richard Hardie, the Fiat 500 has been getting a lot of attention and rightly so. Let’s take a closer look at one of the safest cars on the market, and one that’s also a lot of fun to drive too! Some pictures of the Fiat 500 to start us off as as you can see, it’s such a cool looking small city car.
Incredible Fuel Efficiency
As it is a car designed to be driven around the city and towns, you would expect the Fiat 500 to be fuel efficient. However, we were surprised at just how efficient it actually is. Take the revolutionary TwinAir engine model that gives you a staggering 69 miles to the gallon. Even if you opt for one of the smaller, 1.2 or 1.4 litre models you still can benefit from either 59 or 49 miles to the gallon.
Five Star NCAP Rated Car
As the saying goes, safety comes first and the Fiat 500 will not let you down in this regard. The car was awarded a full five stars from the European NCAP ratings and looking at the array of safety features built-in to the car, it is not hard to see why. Along with a total of six airbags, the car also comes with ESC or Electronic Stability Control. This means that regardless of the conditions of the road are, the car will give you as good a grip as any city car.
It also uses ABS along with EBD and AS/MSR anti slip systems for that extra level of control, support and safety. The car even comes with the practical Tyre Pressure Monitoring System on the dash that will alert you if the pressure is getting too low. No wonder the Fiat 500 is often referred to as one of the safest cars on the road.
Customisable And Cool
Fiat have never been known as a car manufacturer that shies away from creating cars that are not only fun to drive, but fun to look at as well. The Fiat 500 has always had a very iconic look; one that has been improved on over the years. You can choose from a total of 11 different colours for the interior, allowing you to customise it to your preferences and tastes.
Along with the many other bits of technology utilised in the car, such as the Blue&Me navigation system, it is easy to see the attraction with the Fiat 500. Not only will it save you money driving it around for those day to day city commutes, you will look good and feel safe doing it. What’s not to like?
