The new Fiat 500S is now available to order in the UK. Maintaining its appeal with its compact dimensions, low running costs and playful appeal of the Fiat 500, the new Fiat 500S adds that little bit extra with a sportier package.
Completely restyled, the new Fiat 500S includes new sports bumpers front and rear, special side skirts and a rear spoiler, along with door handles, tailgate, “moustache”, mirror fairings and 15-inch alloy wheels which are finished in an exclusive “Satin Graphite”.
The Fiat 500S is also fitted with front fog lamps, tinted rear windows, a chrome-finish tailpipe, black-grained front air intakes and a distinctive honeycomb grille. Both new to the range are standard 15-inch alloy wheels with special “Satin Graphite” finish, or optional 16-inch alloy wheels with a matt-black diamond treatment, while the colour palette has even more options with the addition of 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 perfectly with the door panels and seat edges, which are finished in blue, white or yellow. “Satin Graphite” also makes an appearance on the dashboard fascia and the special sports steering wheel. For extra class the interior can also be trimmed in optional Frau Leather with white or light blue details. A full-colour, seven-inch TFT instrument display is fitted as standard on the model, while the Fiat 500S Convertible adds an electric canvas roof with a heated glass rear window.
The standard seven-inch HD LIVE touchscreen includes Uconnect LIVE services, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling, voice recognition and an array of entertainment options such as Bluetooth streaming, USB connectivity, AUX, DAB digital radio and FM/AM radio. The system can also be upgraded for an £500 to include the latest 3D TomTom navigation system.
The exclusive BeatsAudio sound system also debuts on the new Fiat 500S. Priced at just £300 this seven-speaker system has a total output of 440 watts and can provide an experience similar to that of a studio recording.
In terms of safety, the Fiat 500S has got it taken care of with seven airbags as standard equipment, including a driver’s side knee bag, ABS with EBD, ESC system with ASR, Hill Holder and HBA to assist in emergency braking.
There is a choice of four engines to power the Fiat 500S giving an option to suit 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 automatic transmission, while the 105hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol is fitted with a 6-speed manual as standard. There is also a 95hp 1.3-litre MultiJet II diesel on offer with the 500S which aims to reduce emissions at only 89g of CO2 per kilometre and an official combined-cycle fuel efficiency figure of just 83.1mpg.
