Eastenders Star Purchases Brand New Fiat 500c For His Daughter

Steve McFadden, better known by millions as EastEnders hard-man Phil Mitchell, has been going above and beyond his fatherly duty by ordering a brand new Fiat 500c for his daughter Teona’s 17th birthday. After visiting Glyn Hopkin Fiat St. Albans, Teona was enticed by the effortless style and iconic profile of the 500, one of UK’s most popular and fun-to-drive city cars. This week the birthday girl took delivery of her brand new 500c 1.2 Lounge, resplendent in distinctive Bosa Nova white paintwork.

McFadden has starred in one of the nation’s favourite soaps for over 25 years and has won countless awards for his gritty tough-guy performances. Far removed from his on-screen machismo, he was full of praise for the Glyn Hopkin team as he gladly put pen to paper for the stylish Fiat 500c Lounge edition for daughter Teona. The open-top version of the iconic 500 is available from only £13,540 or just £189 per month, with a £500 Fiat deposit contribution.

Fraser Cohen, Managing Director of Glyn Hopkin, said: “The Fiat 500 is one of our best selling cars because it’s great fun to drive and includes all of the features you could want. It’s the perfect car for whizzing around the city with friends, roof up or down, and it’s great to hear Teona is thrilled with her birthday present!”

The popular supermini is available in two body styles – hatchback and convertible – and three trim levels – Pop, Pop Star and Lounge – allowing drivers a significant degree of personalisation. Standard equipment across the range includes Start&Stop; seven airbags; electric windows and mirrors; remote central locking; a height-adjustable driver's seat; a height-adjustable steering wheel and electric power steering.

The convertible 500c Lounge model features an electric ‘concertina’ style soft top roof, a choice of three roof colours, 13 body colours, 16-inch alloy wheels, Uconnect™ 5-inch touch screen radio, 2.5D TomTom navigation, rear parking sensors, automatic climate control system, Blue&Me™ connectivity (including Bluetooth, voice recognition, steering wheel remote controls and a USB port), a leather-trimmed steering wheel and Frau leather seats as standard.

Fiat St. Albans, one of nine Glyn Hopkin Fiat dealerships, is located on Lyon Way, St. Albans, Hertfordshire, AL4 0QU, and is open from 08:30 to 18:00 Monday to Saturday and 10:00 to 17:00 on Sundays.
