The Versatile Option That Gives You More For Less

No matter what 2018 FIAT 500 you choose, you'll always get more for less, and standing out won't be an issue. That's because every FIAT 500 model sticks out in a variety of ways.

The new 2-door FIAT 500 is the quintessential European city car. It's affordable, compact enough to squeeze into the tightest parking spaces, which is perfect for LA drivers, and offers a coolness factor that perhaps no other car under $16,000 can match. Trims include Pop, Lounge and the rally-car inspired Abarth.

The MINI Cooper's cheapest model, on the other hand, starts at $19,750!  So why pay more for less?  Test drive the 2018 FIAT 500 now at Santa Monica FIAT.

The Perfect Balance

The 2018 FIAT 500 is built for getting around town and roadtrips!

With its 1.4-liter 101-horsepower MultiAir 16-valve four-cylinder engine, this option gives you plenty of get-up-and-go punch for merging into traffic or overtaking slower drivers.

This base engine also gets an EPA-estimated 31 MPG on the streets of Los Angeles and up to 38 MPG on the highways of California! This beats out the heavier, clunkier, 2018 MINI Cooper who is more of a gas-guzzler.

Plus, if you prefer a sporty and powerful experience, you can still upgrade to the new FIAT 500 Abarth, which comes equipped with a 1.4L 160-horsepower MultiAir® turbo engine. This version also features a standard 5-speed with manual shift or an available 6-speed automatic transmission.

An Interior Made For LA Drivers

A perfect match for fun, hip Los Angeles drivers, the 2018 FIAT 500's interior is made to match its playful exterior.

Get behind the wheel and you'll notice its swooping, brightly colored dash, huge sunroof and ergonomic controls.

Other interior features include:

  • Automatic temperature control
  • Uconnect 5.0 with Bluetooth Streaming Audio & Hands-Free Calling
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls
  • USB port

Safety At A Great Price

Let's face it, life in Southern California can get pricey, and at times it may be better to invest in a car that gives you the peace of mind you need, without breaking the bank - the new FIAT 500 does just that!

The new FIAT 500 comes with 7 airbags, electronic stability control, a steel safety frame and a 48-month 50,000-mile basic limited warranty. So why spend more on a MINI Cooper with subpar safety ratings?
