In the EuroNCAP crash test the 500 achieved a five-star result (with 35 points), making it the safest car in its category. This result was largely due to the passive safety devices which come as standard (two dual stage front airbags, two front side airbags, two window-bags and a driver’s knee airbag). The new Fiat 500 offers fully developed electronic systems monitoring the movement of the car as standard: the anti-lock braking system complete with electronic brakeforce distribution, anti-skid regulation (ASR) to limit wheel spin during acceleration with electronic stability programme (ESP), and MSR to modulate brake torque, hydraulic brake assist (HBA) and the Hill Holder.
Some 500,000 different versions can be ordered with the help of the configurator. If you value practicality, but would still like to drive a fun and stylish car, then the new 500 is definitely for you. Five hundred are expected to be sold in
