The 500 and 500c are powered by the award-winning 1.4L MultiAir® 16V I-4 engine. Its electronically controlled hydraulic system optimizes every valve stroke and is the technology behind its exhilarating performance and outstanding fuel economy.
A slick-shifting 5-speed manual transmission comes standard and delivers a wonderful tactile quality. A 6-speed automatic is available and features Auto/StickTM so you can slip it into manual mode and take full control of the driving experience.
The thrill of 157 horsepower and 183 lb-ft of torque is yours thanks to a twin intercooled, 1.4L MultiAir® 16V I-4 Turbo engine mated with a heavy-duty 5-speed manual or the available 6-speed AISIN® heavy-duty automatic transmission.
This engine features electronically controlled hydraulic valves, lightweight forged connecting rods, a high-flow, fresh air intake system and Abarth®-specific equal-length half shafts for reduced torque steer. You'll know it's Abarth by the iconic Rosso (Red) valve cover.
Aerodynamic styling amplifies its legendary lines. Every part of the Abarth® framework shrugs off resistance when you summon its Turbo muscle. KONI® Frequency Selective Damping front shock absorbers and a low ride height enhance handling for drivers who live to push the limits.
Torque Transfer Control (TTC) is a dynamic feature that operates with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC)7 system to keep all that power in check. TTC improves the transfer of drive torque to the wheels to help minimize understeer/oversteer and maximize traction. The hardest lessons of becoming an expert driver? Handled.
To transform your drive, engage Sport mode on all models with the push of a button. Steering becomes more responsive, while throttle map and shift schedules get more aggressive for improved engine feedback.
With Abarth® models, Sport mode adjusts the degree of differential locking in the Torque Transfer Control system based on factors such as vehicle speed. The automatic transmission on Abarth models adds fuel-cut upshifts, rev-matching downshifts, brake-assist downshifts and corner gear hold for more aggressive performance.
All FIAT® models have 4-wheel antilock disc brakes to help prevent wheel lockup in extreme braking situations. Also standard is Brake Assist, which helps reduce stopping distance by applying maximum brake pressure in an emergency braking situation.
The Abarth® model's track-ready capability calls for the enhanced stopping power of performance brakes. Abarth front rotors are larger, at 284 mm (11.1-inch), and together with larger calipers and performance pads produce greater stopping force, enhanced heat dissipation and improved fade performance. Abarth calipers are distinguished by their Rosso (Red) finish.
Take any guesswork out of backing into a parking space. Rear Park Assist14 uses radar sensors positioned on the rear bumper to measure your vehicle's position at low speeds, relative to obstacles. The system emits an audible alarm that increases in intensity as the space behind your vehicle lessens.
Rear Park Assist is standard on all cabrio models and can be selected on Lounge and Abarth® hatchbacks.
Beginning with a steel safety frame and 7 air bags,6 FIAT® 500 models also feature advanced technologies to actively enhance the security of vehicle occupants.
These include standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC)7 with Brake-Force Distribution and Hill Start Assist, and Electronic All-Speed Traction Control.
The ESC system in Abarth® models features a 3-mode operation. Use “On” for everyday driving, “Off” when you want no system intervention and “Partial Off” for a higher limit threshold before the ESC system engages.
Having the best time in your FIAT® means being safe and secure, which is why the 500, 500c and Abarth® models come standard with 7 air bags,6 including advanced multistage front, front-seat mounted side, driver's knee blocker and side-curtain air bags.
The 500c and 500 Abarth® Cabrio are also the only cabrios in Canada to offer 1st- and 2nd-row side-curtain air bags. The air bags in your FIAT work together to help ensure you and your passengers are protected on all sides.
