2014 Fiat 500 Hatchback ReviewDecember 9, 2014
This car comes with clear, surround visibility and facile controls. But the driving seat is plumb, and there is lever on the side of the driving chair, but it does not adjust the height, as it is placed to rechauffe the nook of the base, which is not leasing at all. You cannot adjust the steering wheel for the reach, which is another drawback.
There is decent space upfront and sufficient space at rear seats as well, which can be adequate for two adults in small passages. The boot is geared up with proper space for shopping satchels, but the primary models do not contain the folding back seats.
Initially you get music player, electrically controlled door mirrors, central locking, and at the upgraded version you will get Bluetooth, alloy wheels, fixed glass roof and back seats with split folding, to make more boot space. If you want more than that, then you can choose Twin-air models, where you will get AC standard on everyone. At the vertex models you will get amazing features like mesmerizing interior, climate control etc.
If you are a speed love then you would not like the primary level 1.2-liters petrol engine. You can like the 0.9 turbocharged 2-cylinder engine, which gives you sizzling performance when you keep it over 2000rpm. If you are willing to have more speed, then you can go for the 1.4-leters petrol engine. Diesel engine can also be quite fruitful for you if you need to travel miles daily, then you can choose the 1.3-liter diesel engine for speedy and economic performance of your car on roads.
It can be easily operated in city, because of its tiny size and light steering. Though the handling is tubby a bit, and the ride is highly jittery and full of spurt. It can be very helpful in finding ways on crowded streets, because of its size.
Wind and road noise become vibrant, when you raise the speeds, but they never reach to the extreme level, which is a good thing by all means. But the diesel engine produces considerable noise even at low speeds. The 0.9 Twin-air highly deserve the refinement because it creates irritating vibration and noise.
This car comes with explicit retro looks and good opportune rates. You will happy to know that this car holds a great resale value. This car is environment friendly as well, because it releases very low CO2. The interior is made of good quality fabrics and plastic, but some f the panels look jogtrot. This car was not that much promising for the owners, who gave their verdict for the JD Power customer satisfaction survey in the year 2012. All the models are geared up with curtain, side and front airbags, and an additional one t protect the knees of the driver, which is a good security option by all means. It has also got the 5-star rating in the crash test rating conducted by the Euro NCAP. But there is one drawback i.e. the entry level models do not come with the stability control option, which is not a wise move.
