Fiat fuels 500 “cult”

Fiat unveils revisions to the 500 range, headed by the range-topping Cult

Italian car giant Fiat has given its successful 500 range a freshen up for spring 2014 with the launch of new models and various style and technological revisions.

The new top-of-the-range Fiat 500 Cult features a new 7-inch TFT digital instrument display which can be configured to show distance travelled, instant fuel consumption and range, for instance.

The Cult also featured exterior style detailing including a gloss black roof panel and black surround for the tail light clusters and rear parking sensors.

It also has 16-inch alloy wheels with a new design, new leather seats as standard, either in black, tobacco or red, plus a high level of safety equipment including seven airbags and ABS as standard.

The 500 Cult is available with the same engines as the rest of the range, plus the new 104bhp, 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol, capable of 0-62mph in 10 seconds, a top speed of 117mph and as much as 67mpg.

Across the wider 2014 Fiat 500 range, two new body colours will be available – a retro green and new three-layer white – while the S model will be offered with a striking new blue. The cars are due to hit UK showrooms by the end of April.
