FIAT turns 500 TwinAir into specific model

FIAT's fun to drive 500 TwinAir has become a separate 500 model. Available in two trim levels – TwinAir and TwinAir Plus – the new line-up is considered the ‘perfect Fiat 500’ not only in terms of value for money, but also in engine technology.

The 0.9-litre TwinAir engine is widely deemed to be the unit that best suits the 500’s fun-to-drive attitude. Its high torque at low revs and environmentally-friendly credentials help make the 500 a serious contender among rival city cars. With a 95g/km CO2 figure it is also entitled to travel across London without incurring the capital’s congestion charge.

The TwinAir range will come in both 500 (hatchback) and 500C (convertible) versions and will only be available in vibrant colours such as Pearlescent Red, Tropicalia Yellow and Electroclash Grey. A special colour, Midnight Black, is available only on the TwinAir Plus model.

The TwinAir gets a sport kit (which oncludes a chrome exhaust pipe and spoiler), a metallic effect dashboard, sport seats, a black interior surround, 15-inch matt black alloy wheels and air conditioning. The TwinAir Plus adds 16-inch matt black alloy wheels, automatic climate control instead of air conditioning, Blue&Me, a sport leather steering wheel with eight commands, a leather gear knob, dark tinted windows and body coloured door mirrors.

The new range starts at £11,600 OTR for the TwinAir, rising to £12,700 for the TwinAir Plus.
