Fiat 500

Back in 1957, Fiat revealed the Nuova Fiat 500, in Turin. 50 years later, Fiat will introduce a new model, the Fiat 500 that will be available on the market right after its debut. The three-door model will be manufactured in the plant in Poland. It is offered with three engine options: a 1.3 16v turbo-diesel that is able of delivering 75 BHP and two petrol engines, the 1.2 8v that can deliver 69 BHP and the 1.4 16v that has the capability of delivering 100 BHP. The power will be sent to the wheels through a five or a six speed mechanical transmission. When it comes to safety, comfort, technology and equipment, the Fiat 500 is the leader in its category. It is also entertaining and practical, accessible and it is also a friend of the environment.

On July 4, 1957, in Turin, Fiat presented the Nuova Fiat 500, a real icon of our times, with which Fiat concluded a revival that had begun straight after the Second World War. On July 4, 2007, exactly 50 years later, again in Turin, Fiat will present the new Fiat 500 which will be marketed immediately after the launch. And the new car will conclude an equally important cycle of revival for Fiat Automobiles SpA.

Developed by the Fiat Style Centre and manufactured in the plant in Tychy (Poland), the new 500 is a 3-door model with very compact measurements: it is 355 cm long, 165 cm wide, 149 cm tall and has a wheelbase of 230 cm, The car is extremely entertaining to drive, due to its three engines: a 75 bhp 1.3 16v Multijet turbodiesel unit and two petrol engines, the 69 bhp 1.2 8v and the 100 bhp 1.4 16v, all of which are available with five or six speed mechanical gearboxes.

The model confirms Fiat Automobiles SpA's undisputed leadership in this category - a result of its extraordinary heritage of technical, design and human experience accumulated in over a century - and it takes a quality leap forward in terms of comfort and safety, technology and equipment for this segment. The new 500 is the most up-to-date solution for the motorist who enjoys' his car in complete freedom, appreciates it for day-to-day use, but also wishes to drive a car that is entertaining and practical, environmentally-friendly and accessible, but also appealing and full of fun.
